Mac Miller Dead At 26
The rapper reportedly died of an apparent drug overdose.
Rapper Mac Miller is dead at age 26 after an apparent drug overdose.
According to reports, police found the “Self Care” rapper at his home in San Fernando Valley on Friday around noon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mac has made headlines in recent months following his public split from Ariana Grande. The two dated for two years. Following the breakup, Mac drove his G-Wagon Mercedes into a power pole and then fled the scene on foot.
He was later found at his home, where he reportedly confessed to driving drunk and was later held on a $15,000 bond.
Some fans blamed Mac’s breakup from Ariana for the accident, along with her quick engagement to Pete Davidson, calling it “the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood.” Ariana replied, referring to her and Mac’s relationship as “toxic” and added that she was “not a babysitter.”
“I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming / blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his s**t together is a very major problem,” she tweeted.
“I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out,” she added.
In July, Mac addressed the split, telling Beats 1, “It’s strange. Like, the whole [breakup] is a little strange, but it’s not negative. It’s just a part of something that’s going to continue to help make me who I am.”
