Rapper Mac Miller may have passed away yesterday but his memory lives on through fans, co-workers and close friends. Ariana Grande, who dated Miller from roughly 2016 to 2018, remembered her ex-boyfriend with an Instagram post earlier this evening:
The twenty-five-year-old singer chose to let the single black-and-white photograph, an image of Mac sitting in the grass and looking up at the camera with a smile forming on his face, speak a thousand words. (A pair of white shoes can be seen between Mac’s legs, presumptively Ariana’s.)
Although their relationship ended in 2018, the couple shared a loving union, with Mac at one point saying in an interview: “She’s like the greatest person in the world,” he said. “She’s like an angel, she’s very nice, she’s a sweet girl.”

Grande had to disable her IG comments on Friday after many fans began leaving scathing remarks blaming her for the rapper’s death; hopefully the image of Mac can help them remember him in peace and not place the blame undeservedly.
