Ariana Grande Has Announced She's Taking Time Out After Mac Miller's Death

On 7 September, Mac Miller died from a suspected overdose at the age of 26. It came as a shock to his fans and friends within the music industry.

His ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, took to social media the following day, posting a picture of the rapper. There was no headline and the comments were disabled due to the amount of people trolling her.

The 'No Tears Left to Cry' singer then posted a heartbreaking video where she referred to Mac as 'the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved'.

Now, the 25-year-old has explained that she is taking some 'much needed' time to 'heal and mend'.

Neither Ariana or her fiancé, Pete Davidson, attended last night's Emmy Awards, according to BuzzFeed, with many wondering in the build-up whether the couple would make their first public appearance since Miller's tragic death.

Instead, reps for the singer released this statement: "Contrary to reports, Ariana will not be attending the Emmys tonight. Pete has also opted to not attend to be with her in New York.

"Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend.

"She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for understanding."

Before Mac's tragic passing, Ariana was battling with post traumatic stress disorder after 22 people died and more than 500 were injured in a terrorist attack at one of her concerts in Manchester on 22 May 2017.

Nearly two weeks after the initial attack, Grande assembled an all star line up for the 'One Love Manchester' gig on 4 June.

During the show, which which took place at Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford stadium, Grande and Mac performed together for what would prove to be the final time when they performed their song 'The Way'.
