                            Ariana Grande "devastated" about not being able to save Mac Miller from his drugs: Reports

Following the death of Mac Miller, from an apparent overdose, his ex - Ariana Grande - is reportedly absolutely devastated." The two had dated for two years and finally split in May this year, and as per sources, Ariana - who has been rooting for him to give up on drugs - is said to be "very upset" after the news of his passing surfaced. 

Miller - real name is Malcolm James McCormick - was found dead at his LA home around noon on Friday and the news of his death broke right away. The 26-year-old has been quite open about his drug abuse and even shared in a 2016 documentary that he "hates being sober," and ould never turn down substances if offered to him.

Ariana, on the other hand, has been holed up at home in the New York apartment, she shares with her fiance Pete Davidson, with her long-term manager, Scooter Braun comforting her. An insider told Entertainment Tonight: "Although the two ended their relationship, Ariana always shared a deep connection with Mac and wanted nothing but the best for him. Ariana is very upset." And another source revealed, "Despite their split, Ariana had always been supportive of his sobriety."

Ariana and Mac - even after their split - had remained on close terms. In one of her Instagram stories post their break-up, she had described him as one of her "best friends in the whole world." When they split, she wrote: "I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us." She continued: "Unconditional love is not selfish. It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it's not you. I can't wait to know and support you forever, and I'm so proud of you!!"

However, just two weeks after that Mac received a DUI for wrecking his car in a drunken crash. And that's when Ariana had revealed the dark truth behind their break up, admitting that she could no longer keep "babysitting" the drug obsessed boy. Her words came in the form of a lash out after a fan had tweeted her saying: "Mac Miller totaling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a ten song album to her called the 'Divine Feminine' is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood."

To the accusations, Ariana replied: "How absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw isn't the case (just Cinderella is about me). 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 and prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course)."

She continued: "But shaming / blaming women for a man's inability to keep his s*** together is a very major problem. Let's please stop doing that. Of course, I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was. I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well."

However, the hurl of shade and abuses towards Ariana hasn't stopped especially since the news of Mac's death from overdose came out. Fans have taken to trolling her - to the nasty extent of even blaming it all as her fault - owing to her current relationship status and her comments on not wanting to 'babysit' him.
