Rapper Mac Miller has died of an apparent overdose at age 26.
Law enforcement sources confirmed to the celebrity news site (TMZ) that Mac was found dead at his San Fernando Valley Home at around noon September 7th. The police were reportedly called by a close friend of the rapper, who was in Mac’s home at the time of the call.
TMZ says “Miller has battled substance abuse issues for years.” This past May, he was arrested for a DUI after crashing his G-wagon into a utility pole. Although he fled the scene at the time, Mac later confessed at his home and is said to have exceeded two times the legal limit.
Following Mac’s arrest, his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande tweeted the words “pls take care of yourself,” and while the tweet wasn’t directly aimed at him (He wasn’t tagged), it was assumed that her message was for him.
