  • Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent overdose

Rapper Mac Miller died Friday from a drug overdose, according to reports.

The rapper Mac Miller has died at age 26, his family confirmed in a statement.

At times, Miller's personal life attracted as much - if not more - attention than his professional accomplishments, particularly in the case of his relationship with singer Ariana Grande.

Less than 24 hours before his death, Miller tweeted details of his upcoming "Swimming" tour, noting, "I wish it started tomorrow".

Mac and Ariana split after she dubbed their relationship "toxic" but she had revealed on Twitter that she always supported his sobriety.

Miller was found in his Los Angeles home and pronounced deceased on the scene.

He released his fifth, full-length album "Swimming" last month, with Variety calling it "a simple, stately, poetic autobiography".

Mac Miller has been open about his trouble with substance abuse. In response, Grande fired back at critics, telling them that she isn't "a babysitter" or a "mother".

Miller, who released his latest record "Swimming" on August 3, was recently in the headlines following a charge of DUI in May after he crashed his vehicle into a pole in Los Angeles. "There was this time when I was the most Googled thing on the internet".

"We're told authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac's home", TMZ reported. It ranked first on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart when it debuted.

Grande announced her engagement to Pete Davidson in June.

"I used to rap super openly about really dark s***", he told Vulture in a profile that published on Thursday. She added, "Of course I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was".

"It's all positive energy", Miller continued in the interview.

Grande and McCormick were said to have remained friends after their nearly two year relationship ended. "I just wanna go on tour", he tweeted on Wednesday.
