Ariana Grande's manager Scooter Braun pays tribute to Mac Miller

Pop star Ariana Grande has appeared to pay tribute to her former partner, the platinum-selling hip-hop star Mac Miller, following the 26-year-old's sudden death. It would prompt the singer to disable comments on her photos on Instagram.

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller dated for nearly two years before announcing their separation in May, but appeared to be on good terms with one-another. "For all his goofy, comedian persona, he's actually a super deep and sweet guy, he's really empathetic, and he loves Ariana with every piece of his heart, all he wants to do is protect her as much as humanly possible".

Miller, a platinum-selling United States musician and the former partner of Grande, was found unresponsive at his home in Los Angeles on Friday, reportedly after an overdose.

The Self Care rapper went into cardiac arrest in a bedroom at his home outside Los Angeles around noon Friday, and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene, according to a report by TMZ.

Miller died from an apparent overdose on Friday afternoon, but an official cause of death has not yet been announced.

Ariana has yet to publicly comment on Mac's death but the two were extremely close for the two years that they were together so it must be affecting her quite a bit.

Scooter Braun, Grande's manager, also posted a tribute to Miller on Instagram a few hours before Grande's post.

Miller has been open in the past about his battles with substance addiction.

Grande, now engaged to "Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson, dated Miller for almost two years before the pair split up in May. Great man. I loved him for real.

In a statement, his family said Miller was a "bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans".

It continued: "Thank you for your prayers".

At the time she responded she thought it was "absurd" to say she should've stayed in a toxic relationship so that she could keep the Miller from doing drugs.
