The image marked Ariana's first public response to his passing, and came hours after she disabled the ability for followers to comment on her posts, having been inundated with hurtful messages from his upset fans.

Miller's body was discovered Friday afternoon in his San Fernando Valley home and was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene following an apparent overdose.

The official cause of death will be delivered after the LA County Coroner performs toxicology tests.

Pop star Ariana Grande has appeared to pay tribute to her former partner, the platinum-selling hip-hop star Mac Miller, following the 26-year-old's sudden death.

Grande shared a sweet black-and-white pic of Miller, which looks to have been taken from her perspective.

The Los Angeles Police Department told CNN that officers responded to a call for a death investigation at the 11600 block of Valleycrest Road just before noon local time Friday (Sept. 7).

His family confirmed his death in a statement, calling the rapper born as Malcolm McCormick "a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans".

Toxicology tests have been requested, but Mac's official cause of death can not be confirmed until they come back.

Miller had a long history with substance abuse and spoke openly about his issues on multiple occasions.

Grande and Miller had dated for about two years before breaking up earlier this year. There was no evidence of drug use.

Ariana's manager, Scooter Braun, had this to say about the young man: "This was a good man with a great heart".

"Of course I didn't share how hard or scary it was while it was happening, but it was", she said. Let's rise above the negativity and keep Miller's family, friends, and Ariana in our prayers.

Her message was simple: "Rest easy, insane kid".

"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.
