Avicii's ex-girlfriend breaks her silence as fans gather in Stockholm for a memorial dance party in the DJ's honour 24 hours after his shock death

The former George Washington University student posted a throwback snap of her kissing the 28-year-old star – who was also known as Tim Bergling – after it was revealed he had passed away in Muscat, Oman, while holidaying with friends.

Sharing her shock at the death of Avicii – who she dated from 2011 to 2013 – Emily uploaded a picture of the pair cuddling to her Instagram account.

She captioned the sweet image: "'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.

"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.

"Wake me up when it’s all over, because I don’t want it to be real ? #ripavicii #avicii @avicii"

Shortly after the heartbreaking post she shared a screenshot of messages they had exchanged on the app Whatsapp on an unknown date.

Emily wrote: "I love u tim!"

The DJ replied: "I love you too emilyyyy."

Her tribute comes as fans were seen gathering in a square in central Stockholm for a memorial dance party in Avicii's honour.

Crowds assembled to pay tribute to the young musician, who found global fame thanks to a host of chart-topping hits.

Alongside a video clip of a group of hundreds of people, a fan wrote: "They’re having a memorial in stockholm for avicii."

It was revealed yesterday that the star had been found dead.

In a statement, his rep said: "It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.

"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."
