After keeping quiet for over a week, Ariana Grande has finally shared a heart-breaking and emotional tribute to ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died of a suspected drug overdose at just 26 years old.
“I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a video of them both.
“I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. So many times.
“I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend. For so long. Above anything else.
“I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to. The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved.
“I hope you’re okay now. Rest.”
Ariana Grande previously shared a caption-less picture of him on Instagram one week ago.
Mac Miller’s death was confirmed by the LA County coroner on September 8, and although no official cause of death has been determined, it’s widely suspected that he died from a drug overdose.
RIP Mac Miller.
