Mac Miller, Rapper And Producer, Dies At 26

Ariana Grande temporarily disabled comments from her Instagram after trolls blamed her for the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, a report stated.

The insanely talented rapper died Friday afternoon at just 26 years old, and his family has released a statement about their tragic loss.

It reads: "Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26".

According to a September 7 report by Hollywood Life, Mac Miller was found dead in his home on Friday after an alleged drug overdose. "There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time". He was 19 when he released his YouTube "Blue Slide Park" album on November 8, 2011.

In May, shortly after the end of his two-year relationship with the pop singer Ariana Grande, Miller was charged with a DUI after police said he hit a utility pole with his vehicle.

Born Malcolm James McCormick and previously known as EZ Mac, Miller was reportedly suffering from drug-related illnesses and substance abuse, especially in light of his break-up with Grande after nearly a two-year-long relationship.

Over in the National Basketball Association, new Chicago Bulls star Jabari Parker took to IG to pay tribute to the gone-too-soon artist. "Because that's what I was experiencing at the time". At the scene, Mac was arrested for DUI and hit and run.

Ellis had also joked about her name, saying: "When I saw Ariana Grande on the program, I thought that was a new something at Taco Bell", in reference to the popular Mexican fast-food chain.

The rapper apparently watched the Philadelphia Eagles play the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night, and did not seem to be particularly out of his normal character.

Miller had been in a long-term relationship with Ariana Grande, which ended this past May. He says, "I'd rather be the corny white rapper than the drugged-out mess who can't even get out of his house".

According to his website, the Pittsburgh native was going on tour starting October 27th in San Francisco, California to promote his new album 'Swimming'. If you don't feel right, if you feel you have a substance problem, if you need a ear to vent to.

Since being forced to disable her comments, many have also voiced their support of the pop star on Twitter, expressing horror at the abuse, misogyny and blame being aimed at Grande, especially in what is very likely a time of deep grieving for the young woman.
