Miller battled with substance abuse issues for years and became more of a battle after his breakup with Ariana Grande. His most recent album, Swimming, was released on August 3, 2018. We wish to extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
The artist was notably linked to the singer Ariana, who ended their two year relationship back in May and got engaged to comedian Pete Davidson just one month later following a whirlwind romance.

When reached by phone Friday afternoon, the Los Angeles County Coroner's office would not confirm Miller's death. To that, she had responded in a tweet, saying it was "absurd" to "minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship".
Miller, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, had struggled with substance abuse in the past.
He addressed both his drug use and his fragile emotional state on his latest album, Swimming, and said he was improving.
Miller first gained a following at age 18 with his mixtape "K.I.D.S." in 2010, and early in his career was known for party-style songs with videos that went viral.
