A week after Mac Miller passed away at 26-years-old, Ariana Grande opened up to her followers on Instagram. On Friday, Grande posted a video of her and Miller laughing at the dinner table in a dimly lit room. She wrote:

"i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will. 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. 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."

The day after Mac passed away from a reported overdose, which is currently unconfirmed, Ariana posted a black and white photo of him looking up at the camera and didn't include a caption.

Ariana and Mac had been friends for five years and dated for two, eventually calling it quits in May 2018. In a July 2018 interview, Mac had nothing but good things to say about Grande. He said, "It's all positive energy. I am happy for her and [the fact that she's] moving forward with her life, just as I'm sure she is with me."

Earlier this week, Ariana's brother also posted a moving tribute to Mac and wrote: "I am beyond heartbroken over Malcolm's [Miller's first name] death. He was a good friend and was wonderful to my sister. He was the reason I went to the rehabilitation center where I was detoxed safely from all of the drugs alcohol and medications I was taking, when I couldn’t imagine living without them."
