TMZ has just reported that on Friday afternoon, rapper and artist Mac Miller passed away from an apparent overdose. Law enforcement told TMZ that Miller was found Friday at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene. They also reported that authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Miller’s home.
Miller has recently had all sorts of trouble with substance abuse.
Mac Miller was also coming off of a public breakup with Pop Singer Ariana Grande. In May of 2018, the rapper & artist crashed his car and wrapped the vehicle around a utility pole back. He was then arrested for a DUI and hit and run after the stint. Miller blew twice the legal limit from his DUI and he later confessed to cops that he fled the scene.
After his arrest in May, Ariana Grande tweeted to him, “Pls take care of yourself” and was clearly concerned about the substance abuse. After Miller and Ariana’s breakup, Ariana made it clear that his substance abuse had been a deal breaker in their 2-year relationship.
One of Miller’s earlier mixtapes released in 2014 called “Faces” had a consistent theme drug abuse. Another theme on that mixtape was the subject of death.
Mac was supposed to start a tour next month.
