Rapper Mac Miller, 26, who was frequently open about his battle with addiction and drug abuse, has died from an apparent overdose, according to TMZ.

He was found dead at around noon at his home in the San Fernando Valley in California, TMZ reported.

Miller famously dated singer Ariana Grande for two years before wrecking his Mercedes-Benz G-Class, or G-Wagon, in May when he was arrested for DUI.

Ariana Grande has not responded to news of Miller's death yet, but if it is to judge by Twitter comments about the singer, she has a good reason for disabling comments on her Instagram page.

Miller had just been preparing to embark on a United States tour after releasing his most recent album, Swimming, on August 3. He was scheduled to begin a nationwide tour to support the album late in October, for which he would have been accompanied by Kendrick Lamar collaborator Thunder Cat and rapper J.D.

"Mac Miller was an exceptionally gifted young artist".
