Emily Goldberg, remembered by many as the ex-girlfriend of the late icon Avicii, passed away in La Jolla, California, at just 34 years old. Her obituary states that she died on April 3 from a pulmonary embolism, which results from a blood clot in the lungs.

Originally from Poway, California, Emily graduated from George Washington University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History. A gifted cellist, she played with the San Diego Youth Symphony and had a keen interest in art, photography, and both American and Japanese wrestling, alongside her love for animals.

Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, left an everlasting impact on the music industry. His renowned tracks like ‘Wake Me Up,’ ‘Levels,’ and ‘Hey Brother’ highlighted his ability to blend various genres, from folk to pop, into his electronic music. ‘Wake Me Up’ achieved RIAA Diamond Certification and remains the highest certified dance/electronic song in RIAA history, according to Billboard. His sudden death in 2018 deeply affected many, including Emily, who often honored his memory on social media.

In her last Instagram post on May 24, 2023, Emily revealed she had battled cancer over the past year and was celebrating being cancer-free. She is survived by her parents and her brother.

RIP, Emily.
