TMZ has reported that the musician and ex-boyfriend of Ariana Grande, died of an apparent drugs overdose, at around noon local time.
He has previously battled substance abuse, and tributes have already begun pouring in for the star from friends and fellow celebrities.
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller have been linked since 2013 when he appeared on her song ‘The Way’. They split in 2018, with Ariana publicly confirming the news. She wrote,
“Hi! This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet Malcolm McCormick.”
“I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!”
“Unconditional love is not selfish. It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it’s not you.
“I can’t wait to know and support you forever and I’m so proud of you!!”
After they split, Ariana was targeted on Twitter who called their split ‘heartbreaking’. She responded with a lengthy note:
We wish Mac’s friends and family our sincerest condolences during this sad time.
