Model ‘blamed’ over Avicii’s death
AVICII'S heartbroken girlfriend Tereza Kacerova has revealed how trolls have blamed her for the DJ's death.
The Swedish star passed away on April 20 after taking his own life in Muscat, Oman, aged just 28.
Following his shock death, Kacerova revealed she had been in a relationship with the star - real name Tim Bergling - and how he doted on her son Luka.
The DJ was also reportedly in a relationship with another woman, Emily Goldberg, who has also been posting tributes to the DJ across social media.

But, according to The Sun, instead of receiving an outpouring of sympathy for Kacerova's loss, the model has revealed in a lengthy statement on her Instagram that she has been blamed for Avicii's death by sick trolls.
She wrote: "A lot of vultures 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.
"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 even before I brush my teeth, and I have to explain to Luka over and over that Tim can see him from the sky but 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."
Kacerova continued to blast the trolls, saying the star - who had hits including Wake Me Up and Hey Brother - would have been disgusted by their behaviour towards her.
She added: "You think it's in ANY way acceptable to try and make this more painful for me than it already is?
"'Tim would have wanted this, Tim would have wanted that …' First of all, you don't even have the right to call him Tim.
"Because as far as I know, Tim didn't know you exist. So sit down. He's Tim to me. To you he's Avicii.
"If you actually knew Tim, even in the SLIGHTEST, you would know he would be disgusted at your despicable behaviour.
"He would be appalled. You know nothing."
