Shane Powers, a friend to Mac Miller has spoken about the late Pittsburgh rapper’s relationship with Ariana Grande on a recent episode his podcast ‘The Shane Show’
This comes following the backlash the recently engaged singer has been receiving from the public who continue to blame her for not being there for the rapper when he needed her the most.
During the episode, Powers revealed the pop princess played a pivotal role in supporting Miller’s sobriety.
“They were very much in love,” Powers said. “I have to say she was incredible when he first sobering up. She was a fucking G to him. There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana. I saw that. I was around it. I took phone calls from her. ‘How do I help? What do I do?’ This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful in him being healthy.
“Whether he’s an addict or not, the way that Mac partied was not healthy. But I gotta tell you, man, there was no one in his life more ready to go the wall for him when it came to him being sober and she was an unbelievably stabilizing force in his life, and she was deeply helpful and effective in keeping Mac sober and helping him get sober. She was all about him being healthy. Period. In this area of his life.”
Miller, 26, died on September 7 following a reported drug overdose.
