Mac Miller has reportedly died from an apparent overdose. He was 26.
“Miller, born Malcolm James McCormick, was recently charged with a DUI after crashing his car into a power pole in Los Angeles this May. Shortly after the crash, ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande posted a statement about their former relationship, writing that she had “cared for him and tried to support his sobriety.”
We’re following the story now…
“After his arrest Ariana tweeted, “Pls take care of yourself” and was clearly concerned about substance abuse.
Sources close to Mac tell TMZ, friends of his warned people not to bring up the subject of his relationship with Ariana because it was “too touchy.”
After their breakup, Ariana made it clear … his substance abuse had been a deal breaker in their 2-year relationship.
His 2014 mixtape, “Faces,” was almost autobiographical on the subject of drug use. There were also references to premature death.
A profile of Mac was just published Thursday by Vulture — among other things, Mac said he had enormous pressure growing up in the public eye … “A lot of times in my life I’ve put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived. And it creates pressure.”
