Miller’s substance abuse problems were made public during his relationship with singer Ariana Grande. According to TMZ: “After their breakup, Ariana made it clear … his substance abuse had [been] a deal breaker in their 2-year relationship.”

God fucking dammit. You were such an incredible person. You changed so many lives. Had so much love in your heart. You inspired me throughout highschool, and I wouldn't be where I was today without you. Never a more kind and sincere and beautiful person. I fucking love you mac.

I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.

I was listening to Mac Miller on Spotify when I got on my Twitter and the first tweet I see is “Mac Miller dead at 26” and it was the oddest feeling ever thinking “that voice is no longer here” 😫😭
