Ariana Grande is still attempting to process ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s death. The songstress broke her silence on Friday, September 14, by posting a sweet tribute video of her ex-boyfriend, along with a powerful message dedicated to the rapper.
"i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will," she captioned a video of him smiling. "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 dated Mac Miller for nearly two years prior to splitting earlier this year. The “God Is a Woman” singer previously addressed Miller’s death by posting a photo of the rapper after the news broke of his death.
As previously reported, the rapper, whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, was found dead in his Los Angeles home last week after suffering an apparent overdose. He was just 26.
After fans attacked Ariana online, Miller's friend Shane Powers defended the singer, revealing that Ari was "an unbelievably stabilizing force" in the rapper's life.
"There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana," Powers said. "This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful to him being healthy."
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by Miller’s death.
