The Los Angeles Times reported that paramedics responded to Miller's Los Angeles-area home Friday. The 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick, had released his latest album Swimming last month.
Miller has been open with his struggles with substance abuse in the past, and he was charged with a DUI after a May car accident. His addiction issues contributed to a breakup with longtime girlfriend Ariana Grande in May, Grande has said. Miller acknowledged his rough year in an honest Vulture profile published Thursday; last month, Rolling Stone published an article about the rapper titled, "Mac Miller wants you to know he's okay."
I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.
