The report, relayed by TMZ, reveals it was Mac's assistant who found him unresponsive and called emergency services.

Furthermore, the coroner's office has categorized Miller's death as an accidental overdose. It is being reported that the mix of all three drugs, not the amount of each, triggered his cardiac arrest.

His death was also characterised as accidental.

The 26-year-old, who rose to fame after topping USA charts with his debut album in 2011, was found dead at his California home in September. He had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, but his mother told investigators he had not overdosed in the past to her knowledge, or been hospitalized for any reason. That list includes Prince, Tom Petty, burgeoning rapper Lil Peep and former Wilco member Jay Bennett.
