Mac Miller Dead At 26 Of Apparent Overdose

ET can confirm that the rapper died at age 26 on Friday, and some fans were quick to blame Grande - who announced her split from Miller in May after almost two years together - for his sudden death.

USA rapper and former boyfriend of Ariana Grande, Mac Miller, has reportedly died following a drug overdose. He was found around noon at his Fernando Valley home and pronounced dead at the scene, reports said.

Several months ago, Miller wrecked his auto, and he was also arrested for a DUI and hit and run. "I'm a human being", Miller said about his arrest, People reported. He blew two times the legal limit.

The hip hop artist is being mourned by many of his peers. "I was so f-ed up all the time it was bad".

Miller had been in a long-term relationship with Ariana Grande, which ended this past May.

Mac Miller openly struggled with substance abuse, which he documented throughout his mixtapes and albums. He began his career as a rapper as a teen, and his independent 2011 debut album Blue Slide Park went on to top the Billboard 200 album chart, putting him on the map at an early age.

Last month, Miller released his fifth studio album "Swimming" and was scheduled to begin his US tour in October.

"I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be", she wrote on Twitter. The show is going to be special every night.

But he said he was getting better as he released his fifth studio album, "Swimming", last month. I wish it started tomorrow.

The news of Mac Miller's death had barely broken Friday afternoon before an outpouring of mourning and condolences flooded social media from his fellow rappers and celebrities as well as fans alike.
