Mac Miller's Mom Posts Heartbreaking Tribute Photo on Instagram
Mac Miller's mother, Karen Meyers, posted a tribute to her late son over the weekend, simply captioned with the broken-heart emoji. News of the rapper's shocking death hit the world on Friday afternoon, with a TMZ report citing an apparent overdose.
