Ariana and Mac dated for 18 months before announcing they had split in May this year.

A little while after, the rapper was arrested for DUI and hit and run. He fled the scene but police say he later confessed at his home.

Since news of his death broke, Ariana has been forced to turn off the comments on her Instagram page as people began to blame the singer for Mac’s death.

“Within less than 10 minutes of the initial report surfacing,” reports

“Grande had closed the comment section on her Instagram account, but not after dozens of users posted nasty messages such as ‘This is your fault’ and ‘You did this to him’.”

Ariana’s fiancé Pete Davidson was also targetted by trolls who landed some of the blame with him also.

And while some reports suggest he has since deleted all Instagram posts, the comedian is said to have done that prior to Miller’s death.

Mac was found at his home in the San Fernando Valley outside of Los Angeles at around midday on Friday.

According to reports, he was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
