Following the news of Mac Miller‘s death from an apparent overdose on Friday, Ariana Grande has yet to respond.
“Although the two ended their relationship, Ariana always shared a deep connection with Mac and wanted nothing but the best for him,” sources say of the couple, who announced their split in May after nearly two years together.
Despite their split, Ariana had always been supportive of his sobriety. Grande and Miller (real name Malcolm James McCormick) were first romantically linked in August 2016 and released several songs together, including “The Way” and “My Favorite Part.”
Ariana Grande has disabled her comments on Instagram after some fans began to blame her for ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s death.
The “No Tears Left to Cry” singer, 25, has not spoken out about her ex’s death, but her last Instagram post was made on Thursday when she took a short video of her hotel room in the United Kingdom.
Just noticed Ariana Grande disabled comments on her Instagram account after a barrage of Mac Miller-related comments. Recognize the true problem here, rather than using someone else as a scapegoat & continuing the cycle. All so sad & nauseating.

The amount of tweets blaming Ariana Grande for what happened to Mac Miller is disgusting, his addiction and lack of help is what drove this to happen, don't point the finger and blame.

Ariana Grande is not responsible for Mac Miller's death. Stop hating her. She's a person like you who also has feelings. I'm sure she's having a hard time. I wish patience to her and his family
