The popular 25-year-old DJ and producer Avicii has split from his live-in girlfriend Raquel Bettencourt! The news of the break up has been confirmed by multiple sources.
Avicii, whose real name is Tim Berling, had been dating the Canadian model and fashion entrepreneur for over a year. They have been living together in his lavish $15 million California home. According to the chatty sources, the brunette beauty has now moved out of the Swedish DJ’s L.A. home and the relationship is over.
The model captioned the image with “Happy Birthday My Love. Incredibly lucky to have such an amazing person in my life, who I can truly say is my best friend. Love Racqattack.”
The problem seems to be that the couple hadn’t found enough time for each other. Avicii shared in a recent interview that he struggled to find the time to dedicate to his love life with his busy career. Apparently, the problem was too much for the relationship.
The Swedish music maker went to Mexico right after the breakup. On Tuesday, December 17th, he shared a photo via Instagram of a stunning beach scene with the caption “Enjoying my time off with my friends in Cancun!”
The “Wake Me Up” hitmaker had it rough for the past couple of months. He was hospitalized back in March, requiring surgery for a blocked gallbladder and a burst appendix. The hospitalization and subsequent prolonged recovery resulted in him having to cancel a host of tour dates.
But this was not the first health scare for the young musician, because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis in 2013, resulting in him quitting alcohol. His relationship with Bettencourt was “sober from day one.”
