After news of Mac Miller's death surfaced online yesterday, many fans took to social media to blame Ariana Grande.

Chance the Rapper credited Miller with helping him early in his career and called him "one of the sweetest guys I ever knew". She has disabled comments on her posts following his death.

Grande was reportedly forced to disable comments on her Instagram posts after a stampede of comments from internet trolls flooded her photos, blaming her for the rapper's death at the age of 26. Both players took to Twitter to express their personal sense of loss over Miller's untimely passing.

Ariana's been silent since TMZ first broke the news Friday - Miller died at his San Fernando Valley home from an apparent overdose. "I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!"

Grande moved on romantically with Saturday Night Live star and now fiance, Pete Davidson. Just last month, the Los Angeles Attorney's Office officially charged the rapper with a DUI stemming from a auto accident in May in the San Fernando Valley.

Grande and Miller's love story began back in 2013 when they collaborated on her single "The Way".

"Of course, I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was", she wrote in May.

Less than a week after the split, Miller - who had long battled substance abuse and addiction - was arrested for driving while drunk after he crashed his SUV and fled the scene. "I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out".

"Although the two ended their relationship, Ariana always shared a deep connection with Mac and wanted nothing but the best for him", the source said.

An LA coroner said the cause of Miller's death is yet to be determined and that a post-mortem examination will be carried out.
