Ariana Grande has been forced to disable her Instagram comments following Mac Miller’s death
The pair dated for two years but split amicably in May 2018.
The music and celebrity world is in mourning after 26-year-old rapper Mac Miller, was found dead in his home on Friday night.
Celebrities including Post Malone, Snoop Dogg and Ed Sheeran, took to social media to pay tribute to the Pittsburgh born musician, and Drake dedicated a special performance to him.
In a statement, Mac’s family said:
“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26. He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”
One person who has not yet commented, is Mac’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande.
Ariana and Mac dated for two years, with Mac supporting Ariana in the wake of the Manchester bombing. However the two went their separate ways in May 2018, with Ariana confirming the news on Instagram.
Following their split, Ariana began dating comedian Pete Davidson and after a month of dating, got engaged.
In the wake of Mac’s death, Ariana has been forced to disable her Instagram comments, after trolls began blaming her for his untimely passing.
It’s easy to get caught in the world of celebrity and forget that these are real people, with real emotions.
For the record Mac spoke out about Ariana and Pete’s relationship in an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Apple Music in July, saying he had no hard feelings.
“I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it’s that simple,” Mac went on to add that the pair had since both moved on.
“It’s all positive energy,” he continued. “I am happy for her and moving forward with her life just as I’m sure she is with me.”
