TMZ reported that the rapper died of a drug overdose at the age of only 26.

In her first public statement since the death of Mac Miller, Ariana Grande remembered her ex-boyfriend with an emotional tribute.

"I adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will", Grande begins. We talked about this.

It was later revealed that Ariana and Mac split because of his struggles with addiction, but during their break up announcement, Ari shared that there was still love and support. I can't believe you aren't here anymore.

Thanks so much for watching, I'm your host Emile Ennis Jr. and I'll see you next time.

"Above anything else. I'm so sorry I couldn't fix or take your pain away".

The Sweetener singer, for her part, has taken the past week to distance herself from social media, save for a caption-less, black-and-white photo she posted of Miller the day after his death. The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved.

Grande now has comments switched off on the social media platform, likely in a bid to suppress trolls who blame her for some apparent role in Miller's death.

'I hope you're okay now. Sharing a snap of the late star, he wrote: "I am beyond heartbroken over Malcolm's death".

"She was deeply helpful and effective in keeping Mac sober and helping him get sober and she was all about him being healthy, period, in this area of his life".
