After receiving countless comments from trolls on her Instagram blaming her for Miller's death - she broke up with him in May 2018 and shortly after became engaged to Pete Davidson - Grande turned off comments.
Miller, a platinum-selling U.S. musician and the former partner of Grande, was found unresponsive at his home in Los Angeles on Friday morning after a reported overdose.
However, she soon explained that Mac Miller's history of substance abuse dated further back than their relationship and noted that the rapper was still her "best friend,"citing the misogynistic elements attached to blaming her for Miller's shortcomings at the time".
Meanwhile, Miller's ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, acknowledged his death for the first time on Saturday by posting a photo of Miller on her Instagram page.
The artist, who just a month ago released his fifth album whose new maturity and introspection won him once-elusive critical acclaim, was found unresponsive at his Los Angeles home by emergency personnel who pronounced him dead, the coroner's office said. "He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. At this time, an autopsy is pending and a cause of death has not been determined". There was no evidence of drug use.

"Of course I didn't share how hard or scary it was while it was happening, but it was", she said.
Another collab soon followed suit when Ari guested on Mac's song My Favourite Part that same year.
"A lot of times in my life I've put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived", he told the NY magazine's Vulture website.
