  • Mac Miller has died aged 26

Many of Miller's friends, collaborators and peers in the music industry have paid tribute to the kind, talented star on social media, sharing their shock and sadness at the news.

Miller had been in a long-term relationship with Ariana Grande, which ended this past May.

Sources tell the outlet that Grande is now "trying to make sense" of the tragic and untimely death, and that she is completely devastated by the news of Miller's passing.

Neither side revealed his cause of death, but the celebrity news site TMZ, which first reported the death, cited unnamed sources as saying he had overdosed on drugs.

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller pictured in March 2018, two months before they announced their split. The story has now been heavily edited, but you can see the original in a screenshot below.

The rap star was open about his substance abuse issues, having been recently arrested for a DUI, and had reportedly been struggling since he and pop star Ariana Grande broke up earlier this year.

"This is really going to hurt her for a long time".

A week after their breakup, Miller was arrested for allegedly crashing his auto while drunk and then fleeing the scene. "I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course), but shaming/blaming women for a man's inability to keep his sh*t together is a very major problem".

"Let's please stop doing that", the singer continued.


She later called it a "toxic" relationship on Twitter.

"You were such an incredible person".

Supporting someone through addiction is a challenging and often horrifying task. He then asked Grande if she'd be interested in a duet together.

Why are people blaming Ariana?

Swimming, which has numerous hallmarks of a breakup-and-heal album, debuted at No. 3 when it came out.

Mac Miller - who dated Ariana Grande until earlier this year - died age 26 yesterday after being found unresponsive, with the Los Angeles coroner saying his cause of his death was yet to be determined. Mac Miller could do it all, lending an uncommon intimacy to his best songs.

Comments on Ariana's Instagram even claimed she was responsible for the death. That does not mean these actions should be excused in any way though.

It read: "Two years had passed between when they had lived at the apartment around the corner and this conversation".

The 26-year-old platinum-selling star's modest house in the San Fernando Valley, north of LA, has since raised suspicions, according to USA website TMZ.
