Avicii’s girlfriend is being blamed for his death
“He would be disgusted at your despicable behaviour”
Avicii's secret girlfriend Tereza Kacerova has revealed that Internet trolls have blamed her for the death of the Swedish DJ.
Avicii took his own life in Muscat, Oman on April 20. Soon after, Kacerova revealed she had been in a relationship with the DJ, real name Tim Bergling, and shared photos showing him being a doting stepfather to her son Luka.
In an open letter, Kacerova revealed she and Bergling were planning on having their own children together and how sad she was he was gone. The model has now written another open letter, this time to those who have blamed her for his death.
She began with saying she wrote Tim a letter because there were many things she would have liked to tell him, but couldn’t. She details how in the documentary about his life, Tim showed how touring was slowly destroying him physically and emotionally, but he pushed to keep going.
She also touched on the fact he said he believed it was all going to kill him. She explained the reasoning behind writing the letter:
“I wanted to celebrate his life rather than pick apart his death. I wanted people to see the wonderful kind-hearted man he was instead of the sad DJ the tabloids painted.”
She received a few positive comments from her first letter, but went on to say “a lot of vultures also stepped out of the shadows”.
“You have accused me of ‘exposing Tim’ to get ‘fame and money’ while throwing every insult under the sun my way. Let me start with saying that the privacy his family asked for was about details of his death… I am aware I’m not dealing with the highest of IQs so I’ll explain the rest in layman’s terms. To make money, I would have to SELL this.”
She added she hadn’t “granted a single interview or given a single statement” so there was no way she could be making any money from his death.
“This is the most horrible time of my life. I’m drowning in all-encompassing sadness. Anxiety sets in about two hours before I open my eyes, I can’t count the amount of times I’ve had a beer before I even brush my teeth and I have to explain to Luka over and over that Tim can see him from the sky but that he will never ever see Tim again.”
“Yet all you are capable of is negativity. Sweet little comments like ‘Tim decided to check out because he was sick of you’ go beyond crossing all lines and you should be ashamed of yourselves for being such vile creatures. Strong words for anonymous accounts.”
“You think it’s in ANY way acceptable to try to make this more painful for me than it already is?”
“If you actually knew Tim - even in the absolute SLIGHTEST, you would know that he would be disgusted at your despicable behaviour. He would be appalled. You know nothing.”
“People keep saying Tim is in a better place now. Well do you know why that place is better? Because there are no people like you there. Your type are somewhere a little hotter.”
