While all sane individuals can comprehend that Ariana Grande had nothing to do with Mac Miller’s sudden passing, the pop superstar, who was in a two-year relationship with the late rap star, is reportedly still taking the tragic news pretty hard.
According to a well-placed Entertainment Tonight source, Grande, 25, is simply “devastated” by the whirlwind of it all.
“Although the two ended their relationship, Ariana always shared a deep connection with Mac and wanted nothing but the best for him,” the source relayed to ET before adding, “Ariana is very upset.”
A second source chimed in, “Despite their split, Ariana had always been supportive of his sobriety.”
That support included the hard decision of walking away from the relationship back in May. Following the split, a clear fork in life travels was made; with Grande going on to get engaged to SNL‘s Pete Davidson and releasing a Billboard No. 1 album while a spiraling Miller infamously wrecked his vehicle in Hollywood and was cited for a DUI and hit-and-run before dying at the age of 26 yesterday, (September 7) from an apparent drug overdose.
Even with the positive energy put into the universe, internet trolls forced Grande to close the comment section on her high profile Instagram account for the time being. Meanwhile, countless rappers and celebrities all poured out condolences in the wake of Miller’s death.
