'A person who forever changed my life': Mac Miller's ex-girlfriend of six years breaks silence after rapper's shock death at 26
Nomi Leasure had met Mac Miller back in high school, following which, the pair went on to be in a relationship for six years.
Mac Miller's ex-girlfriend has shared a self-written story about her final meeting with the musician before his death on Friday, at the age of 26. The said ex, Nomi Leasure, had met Miller back in high school, following which, the pair went on to be in a relationship for six years.
The story she posted in the wake of his death, was written shortly before the tragic incident happened and speaks about the two of them meeting in an attempt to get closure after their relationship broke down.
She took to Instagram to share the post, with the caption: "Wrote this nearly a week ago, about a person who forever changed my life. But in truth, no one could ever really know."
The pair met up at a bar near where they had previously lived together, to clear the air after their split. Probably referring the same, Leasure wrote in Taylor Magazine, saying: "They say living in the past is what causes depression, so have no past. She was choosing to have no past — to not let a person exist only in a former state of her being. Because then she was locked there too, stuck also in that intangible place. Some version of herself a 'back then.' A version she couldn't determine if she still or ever really was."
Leasure, being a writer and an agony aunt — as LadBible notes — has previously spoken about her relationship with Miller, and also about his battles with addiction and depression. "If you had seen them sitting there you'd determine he liked pale ales, she was getting tipsy and was trying to be restrained. He had a lot to unload. A lot of untruths to untangle from the headlines. And she had always been a good listener," she wrote.
The post went on: "I dated someone with some serious mental health and addiction issues for the better part of six years, and I won't sugar coat this — when you are the girlfriend of someone suffering from a mental disease you will frequently be the one to overcorrect. What I mean is... you will be the one who compromises, who is being asked or expected to make sacrifices on behalf of the other person; you may be blamed, even, for their pain or — if you can believe it — be blamed for being the only thing that actually brings them any happiness."

Miller was pronounced dead at his Los Angeles home just before midday, on September 7. He was found unresponsive by the police and paramedics. Coroners are yet to conduct an investigation to determine the cause of his death, but it is believed to be from an apparent overdose. Along the same lines, Leasure's post concluded with: "The concessions will come from your end with frequency. And if your partner isn't putting in as much work it can quickly begin to feel unfair, imbalanced and, ultimately, as though you're being mistreated."
