Rapper and producer Mac Miller has died, his family and lawyer said Friday.
Mac Miller has reportedly died, age 26.
The Goosebumpz hitmaker was discovered lifeless in his San Fernando Valley, California home on Friday around noon local time, and was pronounced dead at the scene by authorities, law enforcement sources tell TMZ. In May, he endured a high-profile breakup with former girlfriend Ariana Grande and was arrested at home after driving into a utility pole, leaving his vehicle the scene and then testing over the alcohol limit. Just last month, the Los Angeles Attorney's Office officially charged the rapper with driving under the influence (DUI), stemming from a auto accident in May in the San Fernando Valley. "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be". There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time'.
Other social media users made sure to call out certain media outlets for describing Miller as Ariana Grande's ex-boyfriend instead of recognizing him for being a popular rapper in his own right.More news: Serena Williams defeats Karolina Pliskova, reaches US Open semis
