After remaining silent about ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s death a week ago from a suspected drug overdose, Ariana Grande wrote a wrenching tribute to her “dearest friend” on Instagram. 

“I adored you from the day I met you 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.”

“You were my dearest friend,” she continued. “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.”
