In a touching black and white picture, Ariana Grande revealed that she has Mac Miller on her mind. Ariana has returned to Instagram where she paid tribute to her ex-boyfriend who died on Friday.
The singer shared a sweet picture where the rapper is both looking at her and the sky as he sits on the grass.
The moving portrait of the late rapper was shared about 24 hours after it was confirmed that he passed away at the age of 26.
According to TMZ, Mac died from an overdose at his home in California’s San Fernando Valley.
Ariana did not write a word and made sure to turn off the comments in the tribute to the late rapper.
However, after Ariana split from Mac and started dating Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, she said this about her former boo: “Hi! This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet, Malcolm McCormick. I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us.”
Ariana’s manager, Scooter Braun, had this to say about the young man: “This was a good man with a great heart. He will be missed and is gone way too soon. I’m angry to say RIP buddy.”
He later added: “Always a kind heart. You will be missed, and you are gone way too soon. Way too soon. Rest In Peace Mac.”
Fans are defending Ariana against trolls.
One of supporter stated: “There’s so much she can do, why should she stay in a Toxic Relationship? Leave Ari alone! She is not responsible!”
Another commenter explained: “Not her fault, I love Malcom..but she tried and stayed for a long time. His addiction started long before they’re breaking up. Leave this girl alone for trying to live and love. We should be using this time to honor and remember the greatness that @macmiller left on this earth ?? RIP to this young king.”
This person shared: “Ppl probably feel like if they had stayed together, he wouldn’t have overdosed…she claims she’s a God probably got some on men. But the truth is that people who are attacking her and blaming her are super out of line. She could never have anything to do with his passing. It’s sad.”
It has been confirmed that Ariana is heartbroken and devastated over the death.
