  • TMZ: Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent drug overdose

Miller was 26 years old.

Earlier today, TMZ reported that the rapper was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home after an apparent overdose.

The rapper had reportedly been struggling with substance abuse since their split.

Miller was involved in a hit-and-run crash in May when his vehicle hit a utility pole.


Miller had been in a long-term relationship with Ariana Grande, which ended this past May. He fled the scene but police say he later confessed at his home. "I am happy for her and moving forward with her life just as I'm sure she is with me".

Hailing from Pittsburgh, Miller started rapping as a teenager and first gained mainstream popularity with his 2011 song "Donald Trump".

Miller, who released his latest record "Swimming" on August 3, was recently in the headlines following a charge of DUI in May after he crashed his auto into a pole in Los Angeles. It debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

Representatives for Miller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
