ET can confirm that the rapper died at age 26 on Friday, and some fans were quick to blame Grande - who announced her split from Miller in May after almost two years together - for his sudden death.

United States rapper Mac Miller has been found dead at his California home, an LA coroner has confirmed.

Rapper Mac Miller was found dead on Friday of an apparent overdose, Variety has confirmed. The 26-year-old-rapper was found in his San Fernando Valley home and pronounced dead at the scene, according toTMZ. His official cause of death will be determined by the Los Angeles Coroner after a toxicology test.

In July 2011, Miller announced his first album by the name of Blue Slide Park which went on to do incredibly well and debuted at the first spot in Billboards 200 within the first week of its sale. His most recent record, Swimming, was previously released on August 3, 2018.

The rapper dated Ariana Grande for two years, before their split earlier this year.

Investigators reportedly believe Mac Miller's associates may have cleaned up his home before law enforcement arrived.

Our thoughts are with his family.

In May, he was arrested in Los Angeles in connection with a auto crash and was later charged with driving under the influence.

She guest-starred on his 2016 album The Divine Feminine, and a year later Miller - sporting his signature baseball cap above his tattooed neck - welcomed Grande on the airport tarmac when she returned to the United States following the deadly attack on her concert in Manchester.

In a statement about her breakup with Miller, Grande said there were times when the "toxic relationship" took its toll. The "God Is a Woman" singer, who is now engaged to Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, has not commented publicly on Miller's death. "I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will, of course)". I don't know what else to say.

Many on Twitter defended Grande, saying that she should not be targeted for the rapper's death. If you don't feel right, if you feel you have a substance problem, if you need a ear to vent to.
