[TMZ] Mac Miller died Friday of an apparent overdose, TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Mac was found Friday at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene.
We’re told authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac’s home.
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 2 times the legal limit.
After his arrest Ariana tweeted, “Pls take care of yourself” and was clearly concerned about substance abuse.
After their breakup, Ariana made it clear … his substance abuse had been a deal breaker in their 2-year relationship.
Sources close to Mac tell TMZ, friends of his warned people not to bring up the subject of his relationship with Ariana because it was “too touchy.”
His 2014 mixtape, “Faces,” was almost autobiographical on the subject of drug use. There were also references to premature death.
