On Friday, September 7th, news broke that famous music artist Mac Miller, born Malcolm James McCormick, tragically passed away at only 26 years old. In addition to his top-charting music career, the rapper was known for dating longtime ex-girlfriend, award-winning singer Ariana Grande.
It is believed that Miller died of a drug overdose. Other details surrounding his death are unknown at this time.
Following the sad news of Miller’s death, Grande faced major backlash from fans. Many went as far as to blame Grande for Miller’s overdose, considering her proposal to comedian Pete Davidson shortly after her and Miller’s relationship ended earlier this year.
According to PEOPLE, Grande’s social media accounts were filled with hateful comments about the Miller situation. The star singer later turned off her social media comments.
However, others came to Grande’s defense. It has not been confirmed if Miller was struggling with a drug addiction prior to his overdose, but fans assured Grande clearly felt she was in an unhealthy relationship. In return, Grande should not be held accountable for what occurred after their breakup.
Amidst facing backlash, Grande finally broke her silence. On Sunday, she shared a black-and-white picture of Miller sitting on the grass. Grande’s feet appear to be on the ground near his legs. She did not release a statement accompanying the photo.
Please continue to pray for Miller’s friends, family, and loved ones during this difficult time. For more details about his sudden death, please read our earlier story here.
