"Heartbroken" Ariana Grande Posts Mac Miller Tribute Following Ex’s Death

Just a couple of days after the devastating news of 26-year-old Mac Miller's death, his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande has shared an emotional photograph of the rapper in happier times. The rapper was found dead of an apparent overdose on Friday. Sure enough, there it was the next morning - she's had to disable her Instagram comments over trolls blaming her for his death. Apparently speechless, the singer was only able to post a simple, black-and-white photo of the rapper without a caption.

In a statement about her breakup with Miller, Grande said there were times when the "toxic relationship" took its toll. Ariana and Mac had been friends for five years (they first collaborated on "The Way" in 2013) and had dated for two.

"This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet", Grande wrote of Miller on Instagram after the split. A drug overdose is believed to be the cause of his death. They previously featured on each other's songs like Grande's "The Way" and Miller's "My Favorite Part", and Miller stood by Grande's side onstage during her "One Love Manchester" benefit concert previous year.

Ariana Grande is thinking about Mac Miller. In May, he was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), after totalling his auto and fleeing the scene.

Mac Miller, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick, had struggled with substance abuse in the past.

"I wish it started tomorrow", he said on Thursday. He told the crowd: "I swear, life is so f***ing fragile. I f- love you mac".

Her message was simple: "Rest easy, insane kid". Her new, high profile relationship has been one of the biggest celebrity stories of the summer - she and Pete Davidson were engaged just months after she and Mac went their separate ways. His later work incorporated jazz elements and he was set to tour later this year with Thundercat, the wide-ranging bassist whose music has gone from experimental hip-hop to thrash metal.
