Mac Miller Dead at 26 from Apparent Overdose
Mac Miller died Friday of an apparent overdose … TMZ revealed a few short hours ago.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ … Mac was found Friday at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene.
We’re told authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac’s home.
Miller has battled substance abuse issues for years … something that came up again in the wake of his breakup with Ariana Grande. The rapper wrecked his G-Wagon by wrapping it around a utility pole back in May and was arrested for DUI and hit and run. He fled the scene but cops say he later confessed at his home. He blew 2 times the legal limit.
Some people blamed Ariana for Mac’s DUI, and she responded, “I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years.” She added, “Of course I didn’t share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was.”
Sources close to Mac tell TMZ, friends of his warned people not to bring up the subject of his relationship with Ariana because it was “too touchy.”
His 2014 mixtape, “Faces,” was almost autobiographical on the subject of drug use. There
also references to premature death.
Thursday night Mac posted video of a record player and you hear his song, “So it Goes,” which includes lyrics, “Nine lives, never, die, f*** a heaven, I’m still gettin’ high.”
Mac was supposed to start a tour next month.
