Rapper Mac Miller dead at the age of 26

Rapper Mac Miller dead at the age of 26

The Pennsylvania-born rapper was found unconscious at his San Fernando Valley home around noon on Friday and was pronounced dead at the scene, with TMZ reporting that his cause of death appears to be an apparent drug overdose.

This is the second time Grande's name has made headlines in two weeks; on August 2, she was shamed for wearing "provocative clothes" after Bishop Charles H. Ellis III was caught groping her on live television during the funeral of jazz songstress Aretha Franklin - a moment that sparked widespread outrage.

Shortly after their breakup, he crashed his auto in May and was charged with driving under the influence.

Miller's label, Warner Bros., released a statement calling him "a hugely gifted and inspiring artist, with a pioneering spirit and a sense of humor that touched everyone he met. Mac's death is a devastating loss and cuts short a life and a talent of huge potential, where the possibilities felt limitless". Ariana is very upset ... They were last spotted together at Coachella in April, when Grande posted a photo of the couple hugging and Miller kissed her on the cheek.

In May of this year, after several outlets began reporting on their breakup, Ariana Grande confirmed the news on her Instagram page with a telling message on her stories page. He was 26 years old. "I was so f-ed up all the time it was bad".

"Unconditional love is not selfish", she continued. I don't know what else to say.

It was also reportedly the reason for his split from Ariana Grande following their two year relationship.

Notable quote: "I just wanna go on tour", Miller tweeted on Thursday. "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be", she wrote on Twitter in response to a tweet blaming her for Miller's DUI.

"Let's please stop doing that", the singer continued. She added, "Of course I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was". "I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out". Instead, her latest Instagram post features a video in which a cluster of hair extensions are seen being tossed onto the floor.
