Hip-hop stars including Chance the rapper and J. Cole were among the major music figures tweeting out tributes to Miller.

Mac Miller died after a suspected overdose, aged 26.

He was found dead at around noon at his home in the San Fernando Valley in California, TMZ reported.

Days after the breakup, Miller was arrested on DUI and hit and run charges after he "allegedly crashed his Mercedes SUV into a power pole near his LA home and fled the scene", according to Rolling Stone.

Mac, real name Malcom James McCormick, and Ariana dated for two years, before calling things off earlier this year. "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be".

Grande's response serves as a timely reminder that we should not be holding her responsible for the actions of her ex, or even her current partner. Already the fallout from Miller's death has caused the kind of internet ugliness you suspect the rapper would have despaired at: Grande's Instagram comments have been turned off after her account was flooded with comments blaming her for Miller's fate.

Post Malone had been in the NY area on Monday for the MTV Video Music Awards, where he won the song of the year prize. The FAA later told Fox News the plane has been diverted to Stewart Airport, located north of New York City.

And his last performance in the United Kingdom saw him duet with ex Ariana Grande at the One Love Manchester concert, last year.

A rep for Miller did not immediately return a request for comment. "I literally just heard "Despacito" for the first time a few weeks ago", he said.

Miller, 26, had publicly spoken about his battles with addiction over the years, but was in the midst of a career resurgence with the recent release of his fifth album, "Swimming". Of course I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was. "I am happy for her and moving forward with her life just as I'm sure she is with me".

Miller was about to start a concert tour next month.

Many fans in his native Point Breeze said Miller was taken far too soon. I don't know what else to say.

"I really wouldn't want just happiness", he said during an interview that took place last month but was published on Thursday. Love and prayers to his family and friends.
