The singer has admitted to struggling with the shocking loss of her ex-boyfriend of two years, who was found dead of an apparent overdose last month.
Ariana Grande is thinking about her ex, but it’s not “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson.
The “Breathin” singer posted a sweet video of the late Mac Miller to her Instagram Stories from their night at the Oscars on March 4, 2017. In it, Miller can be seen getting his tuxedo jacket sleeve fixed and commenting on Elton John’s style.
Watching the iconic singer being interviewed, Miller joked, “I should have worn that for the night,” referring to John’s jacket. He then turned toward Grande, who was apparently filming the video, and laughed.
In lieu of a caption, Grande instead placed a small heart on Miller as an overlay to the video. Her mother and grandmother can be seen in the video as well, alongside her boyfriend of two years.
The couple would break up just a few months later, announcing their split in May. It was shortly after this that she began her whirlwind romance with the “Saturday Night Live” star.
Grande has admitted to struggling with the death of Miller, who died from an apparent overdose on September 7, and even took some time off from social media. She backed out of a scheduled appearance on the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live,” as well, though she was still on hand in support of Davidson until days before they broke off their engagement.
A week after Mac Miller was found dead, Grande broke her silence on Instagram with a video of Miller laughing and smiling at her, along with a heartbreaking caption.
“i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will [sic]” she wrote. “i can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. i really can’t wrap my head around it. we talked about this. so many times. i’m so mad, i’m so sad i don’t know what to do.”
“you were my dearest friend. for so long,” she continued. “above anything else. i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away. i really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. i hope you’re okay now. rest.”
