So sad. Ariana Grande and her ex, Mac Miller, “were not on good terms” before he reportedly died from an apparent overdose on Sept. 7. The “My Favorite Part” singer, 25, has yet to comment on the heartbreaking news, but has disabled her comments in the wake of his death. 

“Ariana just found out as did the family,” a source close to the singer told Radar. “They were not on good terms at the end and to my knowledge they did not have closure.” 

The rapper reportedly passed away at the young age of 26, after the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an emergency call from his Studio City home at 11:42am. Sadly, law enforcement sources claimed Mac was pronounced dead at the scene. He supposedly has been struggling after he and Ariana split in May, following a two-year relationship. 

Later that month, Mac totaled his G-Wagon by smashing into a telephone pole and was arrested for a DUI and hit and run. Even though he initially flew the scene, cops said he later confessed at home and allegedly blew two times the legal limit. After his arrest, Ariana took to Twitter to express her concern for her former flame, writing: “Pls take care of yourself.” 

Mac was head over heels for Ariana and his vulnerable lyrics from his latest album, Swimming, prove he was going through a rough patch after their breakup. “Self Care,” “Come Back To Earth,” “Hurt Feelings,” “What’s The Use?,” and “So It Goes” are just a few of the titles. Like Ariana, fans and celebs are overcome with grief after hearing about Mac’s death, with several taking to social media to pay homage. 

“Tears poured down my face when I heard your voice knowing you’re not here anymore. It’s not gonna be the same anymore…RIP to a real one, gone but never forgotten,” one fan wrote. “You will forever live through your music! I’m so speechless right now,” another added. We’re keeping Mac’s loved ones in our thoughts during this very tough time.
