ARIANA Grande has paid tribute to her former boyfriend MAC Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, was pronounced dead at the scene after a friend called 911. His official cause of death will be determined by the Los Angeles Coroner after a toxicology test.
The pop princess, who split from Miller in May 2018 after two years of dating, posted a black and white image of the rapper on Instagram but did not leave a caption.
The image appears to have been taken by Grande, whose feet are visible at the bottom of the shot.
Miller is shown gazing up at the singer while sitting on a patch of grass.
Grande had tried to support Miller through his depression and drug abuse since they got together in August 2016.
But she was forced to break up with him for her own mental wellbeing when he kept relapsing, in what she later called a toxic relationship.
Follwing Miller’s shock death, Grande was hit with comments from online trolls accusing her of being responsible for his death.
The pop star is now engaged to Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
Meanwhile, it has beeen reported that there is little evidence of of Miller’s apparent fatal drug overdose.
The New York Post reports authorities found only a small amount of white powder when they combed the late rapper’s San Fernando Valley, California, home on Friday, adding that the residence was possibly “swept clean” after talking with witnesses.
A search for pill bottles or drug paraphernalia turned up nothing, the sources told the site.
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.
Along with many social media tributes from the music world and Hollywood stars, Miller’s family released a statement following shocking death.
“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,” they said in a statement released to TMZ.
