Avicii's $25 Million Fortune to Be Inherited By His Parents

Electronic music legend Avicii, aka Tim Bergling, passed away of an apparent suicide in April of 2018, and his parents have worked hard to keep their son's memory alive in the months since. Now, Swedish documents show that they stand to inherit his reported fortune, which is upwards of $25 million, Billboard can confirm.

Bergling did not leave a will before taking his life, but according to Swedish law, whatever remains of his financial estate after national and international tax debts would go to his parents as he was not married, nor did he father any children. His Los Angeles home was sold off-market for $17.5 million according to public records via the LA Times.

Bergling was very charitable during his professional success. In 2011, he founded House For Hunger, eventually donating $1 million via ticket sales to Feeding America. He also gave €1 million to Swedish charity Radiohjalpen and $60,000 to the FEED Foundation. He worked closely with (RED) in their cause to raise awareness for, fight the spread of, and increase the care options for those living with HIV and AIDS. 

Avicii's parents have since re-organized his official website as an open-source memory board, and presumably approved the donation of his Steinway piano to a Stockholm museum.

The star's struggles with fame and life on the road were documented in the film Avicii: True Stories. It comes to Netflix on Friday, Dec. 28.
