Avicii‘s ex-girlfriend is clearly hurting in the wake of his passing.

Emily Goldberg, who dated the Swedish DJ for two years, took to Instagram on Friday, writing, “‘Come on babe, don’t give up on us. Choose me, and I’ll show you love.’ Those are lyrics from a song Tim wrote for me. I wish I could have lived up to them.”

She continued, “For the two years we were together, he was my closest confidante, and my best friend. Now I can’t look at Bear without knowing I’ll never see his face again. I’m still collecting my thoughts and thank you for all your kind words and texts.”

Goldberg concluded, “Wake me up when it’s all over, because I don’t want it to be real 💔#ripavicii #avicii @avicii.”

His publicist released a statement saying, “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.”

The statement continued, “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Sources close to the DJ tell The Blast that Avicii’s family and team are still gathering the facts about exactly what happened to the young star.
