Ariana Grande has shared a heartbreaking tribute to her late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller.
On her Instagram page, she posted a short video showing the two together. She captioned it: "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."
Miller, real name Malcolm McCormick, was 26 when he died from a suspected overdose. The 'Self Care' singer was found at his home in San Fernando Valley, California, on 7 September.
Grande and Miller had previously dated for almost two years - shortly after the pair split, he was arrested for driving under the influence.
In the wake of his shock death, Grande took to Instagram to pay a tribute to him, posting a simple black and white photo of the rapper with no caption.
Miller's friend, Shane Powers, has said that there was 'no one in his life more ready to go to the wall for him' than Grande.
Recording an episode of podcast The Shane Show, Powers said: "He had a lot of good stuff going on. Ariana and him were together, very much in love and I have to say she was incredible when he was first sobering up.
"She was a fucking G to him. There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana. I saw that, I was around it, I took phone calls from her - 'How do I help?' 'What do I do?'
"This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful to him being healthy. Because whether he's an addict or not, the way Mac partied was not healthy."
He continued: "I gotta tell you, man, there was no one in his life more ready to go to the wall for him when it came to him being sober and she was an unbelievably stabilising force in his life.
"She was deeply helpful and effective in keeping Mac sober and helping him get sober and she was all about him being healthy, period, in this area of his life."
