Ariana Grande disabled her Instagram comments on many of her posts Friday as a wave of trolls blamed her for the death of her ex, rapper Mac Miller.

Following the news of Mac Miller's death from an apparent overdose on Friday, a source tells ET that his ex, Ariana Grande, is "devastated" by the tragic news. He was found unconscious and pronounced dead in his California home earlier today (September 7).

Although authorities have not officially confirmed he died due to an overdose, sources told TMZ and the LA Times that was his cause of death.

It was released in November 2011 and debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first independently-distributed album to top the charts since Tha Dogg Pound's Dogg Food in 1995.

Miller released his latest album-Swimming-on August 3.

"Although the two ended their relationship, Ariana always shared a deep connection with Mac and wanted nothing but the best for him", the source added of the couple, who announced their split in May after almost two years together. On Thursday he tweeted: "I just wanna go on tour".


Miller had spoken openly in the past about a long-time struggle with substance abuse.

Fellow hip hop stars Chance The Rapper, J Cole and Snoop Dogg paid tribute to Miller on Twitter. He was just 26 years old. I can't wait to know and support you forever and I'm so proud of you!'

Days after the breakup, Miller was arrested on DUI and hit and run charges after he "allegedly crashed his Mercedes SUV into a power pole near his LA home and fled the scene", according to Rolling Stone. "He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans", the statement said. Some of those included "You lowkey evil", "THIS IS YOUR FAULT", "It's insane because you really did kill him", "I HOPE YOURE HAPPY WITH PETE", and "You did this to him, smh".

The pair dated for two years, but made a decision to call it off in May this year due to their busy work schedules.

However, and despite Miller's historic battles with addiction, Ms Grande and her new partner have been at the receiving end of huge amounts of online abuse since the death was announced by TMZ on Friday. "I love you bro, and will miss you". "There was always a lot more to me than what people wanted to say, that's the only thing that ever bothered me, " Miller said.

"Unconditional love is not selfish", she continued.
