Ariana Grande “Broke Down” After Learning of Mac Miller’s Death

By  | 

The news of Mac Miller‘s death, which was reportedly caused by a drug overdose, broke the hearts of people across the world. Ariana Grande, who dated the rapper for almost two years before they split in May 2018, has yet to release a statement about the 26-year-old’s passing, but she did let people know she’s thinking of him by posting a black-and-white picture on Instagram.

We don’t blame Ari for not yet speaking about Mac’s death because she is, according to People magazine, “distraught” over his shocking passing.

“She completely broke down after she found out about Mac,” a source tells the mag of how the 25-year-old reacted when she heard the news. “She can’t believe he isn’t here anymore. He was such a special person to her. She is very, very sad. This is a nightmare for her.”

Ariana was forced to disable the comments on her entire Instagram page because of the amount of hate she was receiving from people who said her quick engagement to Pete Davidson was the cause of Mac’s overdose.

One of MM’s closest friends, Shane Powers, recently revealed, however, that the “God Is a Woman” crooner was “unbelievably involved and helpful” in assisting with Mac’s sobriety while they were dating.

“They were very much in love and I have to say, she was incredible when he was first sobering up,” he said on his podcast, The Shane Show. “She was a f*cking G to him. There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana. I saw that, I was around it, I took phone calls from her. ‘How do I help? What do I do?’ This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful to him being healthy.”

He continued, “there was no one in his life more ready to go to the wall for him when it came to him being sober. She was an unbelievably stabilizing force in his life and she was deeply helpful and effective in keeping Mac sober and helping him get sober. She was all about him being healthy. Period.”

Mac left a huge impact on the music industry, as noted by the countless celebrities who came forward to share their incredible memories with him. We cannot imagine what his friends and family members are going through right now and wish them comfort and peace at this tragic time.
