Personal lifeEdit

Miller has said that he became addicted to combination of promethazine and codeine known as "purple drank" or "lean." which he began taking to manage the stress he was enduring during hisMacadelic Tour in 2012. In January 2013, Miller told Complex:

I love lean; it’s great. I was not happy and I was on lean very heavy. I was so fucked up all the time it was bad. My friends couldn’t even look at me the same. I was lost.[21]

At the time of Miller's addiction, his childhood friend, Jimmy Murton, said: "I saw him in that mentality I remember being in—you’re getting fucked up because you feel like you need to. You’re trying to get away from everything. For how much he was drinking, it’s unbelievable that he stopped. It’s definitely one of the most impressive things he’s ever done." Miller quit taking promethazine in November 2012, before he started the shooting of his upcoming reality show, Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family.[21]

Miller was in a long term relationship with a girl he met in middle school for four years until April 2013. Many of the songs on his mixtape Macadelic were about their relationship.[51]

Miller dated the international pop singer Ariana Grande from 2016 until mid April of 2018.

At noon on September 7, 2018 he was found dead in his apartment in Studio City, California, from a suspected drug overdose. His family released a statement about his death that same afternoon:

“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,” reads the statement. “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends, and fans.”
