Songstress Ariana Grande has had a rough week, starting with the passing of her ex-boyfriend of two years, rapper Mac Miller. The news came as a shock to everyone, fans, friends and family, and of course, Grande, who broke up with Miller, real name Malcolm McCormick, in May this year. Just a couple of months later, Grande started dating and had a whirlwind engagement with her new beau, comedian Pete Davidson. Miller, who is said to have overdosed, was found inside his home on Friday. Next, the internet started to blow up and trolls started to blame the 25-year-old singer as being the reason for Mac’s overdose. Grande, who was obviously shaken by the whole ordeal, has finally broken her silence on the matter.
The rappers substance abuse was one of the main causes for the break up, with Grande being forced to end the relationship as it was getting too toxic and unhealthy. Come Saturday afternoon, Grande took to her social media page to share a sweet black and white picture of the late rapper, without any caption. She presumably did so out of respect and mourning, and the sweet tribute garnered over 3.6 million likes. Miller had been in trouble for awhile now due to his substance abuse problems, considering he got arrested just one week after his split with the God is a woman singer. Grande responded to the incident by telling Miller to “Pls take care” of himself. She also took the opportunity to respond to haters who were blaming her for his issues, writing, "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be," adding, "I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years."
"Of course I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was."
Miller was only 26-years-old at the time of his passing and fans and family are left heartbroken after his sudden demise, but we hope that Ariana takes care of herself.
