It’s been nearly two months since rapper Mac Miller passed away, and now a new report reveals his cause of death. According to Radar Online, Ariana Grande‘s ex-boyfriend died from “mixed drug toxicity,” that included “fentanyl, cocaine, and ethanol.”
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner also told the publication that “the manner of death was certified as an accident.”
Mac, 26, tragically passed away on Sept. 7. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an emergency call from his Studio City, CA home at 11:42 a.m., where LAPD pronounced him dead at the scene. In a statement, his loved ones revealed: “Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26. He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends, and fans. Thank you for your prayers.” Fans were devastated to hear of his untimely death, especially since he was about to embark on a tour for his new album, Swimming.
“It started by me just sitting inside all day and then it’s like, then you get bored. Then you’re like, ‘Well I could just be high, and I could have a whole adventure in this room,'” the “Self Care” rapper began. “I’m always like, if someone’s like, ‘You wanna try this?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah sure.’ It f–ks you up when you have a bunch of money because you try a drug, you like it, then you can buy a lot of it. I went through about everything.”
Last week, Mac’s music career was honored at his celebration of life concert benefitting the newly formed The Mac Miller Circles Fund. Several A-list artists made an appearance to pay their respects including Travis Scott, SZA, Chance The Rapper, Miguel, John Mayer, Vince Staples, Schoolboy Q, and Ty Dolla $ign.
