Mac Miller’s grieving mum has shared a touching tribute to her son following his shock death aged 26.
Mac, a platinum-selling US musician, was found unresponsive at his home in Los Angeles on Friday morning after a reported overdose.
On Saturday, his mum Karen Mayers took to Instagram to share a photo of her and Mac together at a baseball game.
The rapper is sporting a huge, cheesy grin as he leans his head on his mum’s head.
She captioned the photo with a single broken heart.
Her post comes after Mac’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande also remembered the rapper.
The No Tears Left To Cry singer, 25, posted a captionless black and white photograph of the rapper looking up at the camera on her Instagram account, which has also had the comments disabled.
Ariana and Mac dated for around two years before breaking up in May.
Shortly after they parted ways, Ariana responded to a fan on Twitter who criticised her for dumping him and said their relationship had been “toxic”.
She tweeted: “I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming/blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his s*** together is a very major problem.”
She also later said she and Mac shared “unconditional love” and that he was “one of my best friends in the whole world”.
Mac performed with Ariana at a memorial concert following the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing and the pair released music together before their split earlier this year.
The LA coroner said the cause of the rapper’s death is yet to be determined and that a post-mortem examination will be carried out.
In a statement, his family said Mac was a “bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans”.
Ed Sheeran , Drake, Chance The Rapper and Post Malone were among a stream of stars to pay tribute to the “great talent”, who released his fifth studio album, Swimming, in August.
Posting an image of the pair on Instagram, Ed said his untimely death was “so heartbreaking”.
He said: “I hung out with Mac a few times over the years and he was always such a sweetheart, always had the time of day for anyone, whoever they were.
“As well as being a great talent, he was a great human.”
Snoop Dogg, who appeared in Scary Movie 5 with Mac in 2013, said he was “so sad”.
Post Malone said his friends “changed so many lives”, while Chance The Rapper said he was “one of the sweetest guys I ever knew”.
Less than 24 hours before his death, Mac ad spoken of his eagerness to go on tour and play his new material for fans.
“I wish it started tomorrow,” he said on Thursday.
However the musician, whose break came with releasing mixtapes in his late teens, had recently spoken of the burden that fame brought him.
“A lot of times in my life I’ve put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived,” he told the New York magazine’s Vulture website.
