Ariana Grande had to turn off her Instagram comments after trolls blamed her for ex-boyfriend Mac Miller's death, but one of the rapper's close friends insists she was integral in keeping Miller sober and healthy.

Shane Powers dropped an episode of his podcast "The Shane Show" on Monday night, which was totally dedicated to remembering Mac, and in it he says Ariana was a "G" to him.

Mac's close friend divulged a few details about the couple's relationship, sharing: 'They were very much in love and I have to say, she was incredible when he was first sobering up'.

The "Attention" star then became quite tearful, as he said "I always thought I'd be the one to help him get clean and to lead him onto the path of a good, clean, sober life". She was "ready to go to the wall" to help him and was said to be hit hard by his death.

On Wednesday, however, the paper published something a little bit different: An anonymous op-ed story. Dao said: "I feel that we followed a definition that has been used by our newsroom in the past".

Powers also said, "It doesn't mean that Mac was out of his mind, it doesn't mean that Mac is an addict, it doesn't mean that Mac is an alcoholic, it doesn't mean that Mac was suicidal". From 2016 to 2018, Mac Miller dated Ariana Grande.

Miller was found dead Friday in his Studio City, Calif. home from an apparent drug overdose. He was 26 years old.

While an autopsy has been completed, the cause of death has not yet been revealed as "additional tests" are needed, according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Coroner.
