Ariana Grande shared a heartbreaking video of Mac Miller after news of his passing broke last week.
In the video she posted on Instagram on Friday, Miller is mid-conversation when he notices Grande filming.
“Baby,” he laughs, trying to cover her phone before hiding in his hoodie.
“It’s for me,” Grande responds. “It makes me happy.”
She captioned the video with an emotional message to Miller:
“I adored you from the day I met when 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.”
The video had nearly three million views in the past two hours.
Grande and Miller dated for two years, and announced their split in May. In a statement, she said their relationship was “toxic” and said that although she tried to support his sobriety, “shaming / blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his shit together is a very major problem.”
When fans blamed her for his death by overdose, she disabled comments on her Instagram. Grande went dark on social media, only reemerging to post a photo of Miller on Sunday.
Mac Miller’s funeral will be held in his native Pittsburgh.
