No one is mourning Mac Miller's death from an apparent overdose more than his own family.

According to TMZ on Friday (Sept. 7) Miller was found unresponsive at his San Fernando Valley home after authorities were alerted by a male who placed a 911 call, presumably from Mac's home.

Grande was also blamed for Mac's auto crash less than a week after their break-up, when he fled the scene after wrecking his vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.However, she hit back, insisting she was not his babysitter. Just last month, the Los Angeles Attorney's Office officially charged the rapper with a DUI stemming from a vehicle accident in May in the San Fernando Valley.

Miller had reportedly been struggling since he and pop star Ariana Grande broke up earlier this year. "But it was the best thing that could have happened".

His most recent album Swimming also garnered positive reviews, reaching number three on the Billboard 200.

Acknowledging the close proximity of the plane incident and the vehicle crash, the musician took to Twitter soon after and wrote: 'God must hate me lol'. "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be".

Last month, Miller released his fifth studio album "Swimming" and was scheduled to begin his USA tour in October.

The Browns were often mentioned as a candidate to land Mack, but he wound up in Chicago with the Bears . "I feel good about that". The hardest part for me is, obviously you lose a good football player, but he's my brother. "He's one of my best friends".

On Thursday he tweeted: "I just wanna go on tour".

In his song "S.D.S", he describes himself as a "Jewish Buddhist tryna consume the views of Christianity".

"We are deeply saddened to have learned about the tragic passing of 2010 Pittsburgh Allderdice alum Mac Miller". Nobody had anything bad to say about him, you can see from the reaction from Twitter.

"I have people that care about me and fans that love my music and it's a attractive relationship with them - people who have been with me through being a 19-year-old wide-eyed kid to being a self-destructive depressed drug user to making love music to all these different stages".

"At one point weed didn't relax me from everything, it made me more paranoid about all the s**t happening", Miller said.

Talking to ET Online, they said: 'Although the two ended their relationship, Ariana always shared a deep connection with Mac and wanted nothing but the best for him. Having people tag you in tweets saying you're "getting away with murder", really doesn't help the situation.
