Grande and Miller, real name: Malcolm James McCormick, were first romantically linked in August 2016 and released several songs together, including "The Way" and "My Favorite Part".

Mac Miller has been pronounced dead at the scene after an overdose months after his split from Ariana Grande, TMZ reports.

"The music artiste known as Mac Miller died today [yesterday] in his Studio City home", the LA County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said in a statement.

He was reportedly found in his San Fernando Valley home on Friday.

At the time of this writing, no further details about Miller's death have been released to the public. In 2012, his first album, "Blue Slide Park", became the first independent debut album to hit the top of the Billboard chart in more than 16 years.

That accident occurred shortly after he and pop star Ariana Grande had broken up after almost two years of dating.

In his recent Instagram post, Mac posted a video of a record player with his song So it Goes playing, with the lyrics: "Nine lives, never die, f**k a heaven, I'm still getting high".

However, in 2014, Miller announced that he was no longer associated with Rostrum Records and that he had signed a new deal with Warner Bros Records for a whopping 10 million dollars. "One social media user goes as far I accusing her of murder:" It's amusing because you actually did kill him".

"He was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew, "the rapper wrote on Twitter".

Miller's family in a statement confirmed the death and called him "a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans". "I used to rap super openly about really dark s-t", he told Vulturein a profile that published on Friday. "And I don't want just sadness either".

"At his record release in NY he was happy taking pictures, we felt like he was back".

Grande has yet to comment publicly on the tragic news of his passing, but has has disabled comments on her Instagram in the wake of it, after the rapper's fans began blaming and abusing her for his untimely death.

This week, Grande performed her first United Kingdom show since the One Love Manchester benefit concert past year, playing an intimate set at London's KOKO.
