Miller & Grande Broke up in 2018
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller announced their split in May 2018. According to TMZ, Miller had a really hard time following his split from Grande.
“This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet.

Miller’s Substance Abuse Seemed to Become More of a Problem Following His Split From Grande & Her Subsequent Engagement to Pete Davidson
According to TMZ, Miller had battled substance abuse for years, but it became a bigger problem following his split from Grande.
“Miller has battled substance abuse issues for years … something that came up again in the wake of his breakup with Ariana Grande. The rapper wrecked his G-Wagon by wrapping it around a utility pole back in May and was arrested for DUI and hit and run. He fled the scene but cops say he later confessed at his home. He blew two times the legal limit,” TMZ reported.
Not long after her split from Miller, Grande moved on to Pete Davidson. Just a few weeks after going public, the two became engaged.
“It’s a recent engagement. They’re just two people who found love quickly and make each other happy all the time. They both started talking about it this past weekend. It’s nothing they’ve been hiding,” a source told People Magazine at the time.
Miller responded to the engagement, and said that he was “happy” for his ex.
“Like the whole thing is a little strange, but it’s not negative. It’s just a part of something that’s going to continue to help make me who I am. It’s all positive energy. I am happy for her in moving forward with her life, just as I’m sure she is with me,” he said. “I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it’s that simple, you know?” he added.
