[BREAKING] Mac Miller Reportedly Dead at 26 of Apparent Overdose

Rapper Mac Miller has died of an apparent drug overdose, according to a report.

He was found around noon at his Fernando Valley home and pronounced dead at the scene, reports said.

Miller had recent troubles with substance abuse and was up front about these issues in his music.

Miller, who released his latest record "Swimming" on August 3, was recently in the headlines following a charge of DUI in May after he crashed his auto into a pole in Los Angeles.

When police later arrived at his home, Miller admitted to driving drunk and fleeing the scene.

But he said he was getting better as he released his fifth studio album, "Swimming", last month.

Thursday night Mac posted a video of a record player and the song playing was from one of his albums.

Mac Miller and Ariana Grande perform on stage, June 4, 2017, in Manchester, England for the "One Love Manchester" benefit concert. "There was this time when I was the most Googled thing on the internet".

The rapper and producer, whose given name was Malcolm James McCormick, was 26 years old. At the time, it was thought that their busy work schedules had caused a rift between them.

When reached by phone Friday afternoon, the Los Angeles County Coroner's office would not confirm Miller's death.

Fans showed up there Friday evening to leave tokens of tribute to the well-known Pittsburgher after word circulated about his death.

Miller spoke about their breakup in a July interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 on Apple Music, calling the intense scrutiny he faced "stressful". There's been a lot of talk about me being on drugs and look at me - do I look like I'm on drugs to you? On his debut album Blue Slide Park, which went to number one on the U.S. sales chart, he introduced himself: "I ain't no hipster / But girl I can make your hips stir". We wish to extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends. He was 19 when he released his YouTube "Blue Slide Park" album on November 8, 2011.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have blocked comments on their Instagram accounts after being targeted by trolls following Mac Miller's death. "I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming/blaming women for a man's inability to keep his s**t together is a very major problem", she wrote.
