Ariana Grande Shares Poignant Photo Following the Death of Mac Miller
A picture is worth a thousand words, and Grande's post -- an old, black and white shot of a seated Miller looking up at her -- offers more than that. (No caption accompanies the photo.)
The rapper -- who died on Sept. 7 after an apparent overdose at the age of 26 -- and pop star dated for two-and-a-half years before ending their relationship in the spring of 2018. They were friends before they dated and collaborated before making their romance official in September of 2016, and even though they didn't speak following their split, Miller wished nothing but the best for her after the break-up.
"I’ve cared about her for a long time as a person,” he told Rolling Stone in a recent interview, adding that he was happy for her and her engagement to Pete Davidson. “I am genuinely happy that that’s how she moved. That’s good for her. Go, go, keep going! As she should. I’m just being real. That’s good. Now I have space for me. And that’s great too.”
Grande is the latest to share a remembrance of the rapper, as numerous artists -- including Chance The Rapper, J. Cole, G-Eazy, Halsey and many more -- express their grief and disbelief over Miller's shocking death on social media.
