The superstar DJ, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead at a luxury resort in Muscat, Oman, on April 20.
Showbiz website TMZ cited sources close to the incident and who, it is claimed, know about the circumstances surrounding the star's death.
Their claims come after his family described the 28-year-old as a "fragile soul" who "could not go on any longer".
The full heartbreaking statement read: "Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions.
"An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
"When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music. He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer."
Avicii is reported to have been struggling, living on a diet of alcohol and burgers to get through a schedule which saw him performing upwards of 300 gigs a year.
His Czech model girlfriend Tereza Kacerova recently revealed on Instagram how she and Bergling had planned to have a child.
She wrote: "I was set on keeping our relationship private as I wanted it to be ours only.
"But I thought, if I’m going to share this with the world, it will be when pregnant with our child. Ohhh, how that plan went awry.”
Loyal supporters took to social media to express their grief. An upset Laura Dee wrote: "There is still a ridiculous stigma around mental health that prevents people talking about it.
Liam Maynard, who says he was "broken" to learn of Avicii's suicide, said: "Shows you can have everything and be unhappy. Everyone should find peace."
The many stars he has collaborated with, including Coldplay and Leona Lewis, were also quick to pay their respects.
British singer Rita Ora led a minute of silence at a Dutch festival before performing Lonely Together, a song they both worked on.
