2023 will mark the five-year anniversary of Mac Miller's untimely passing, and much of the music community still hasn't fully processed the rapper's death. Among those chiefly upset by his fatal overdose include ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande, who was on track to marry comedian Pete Davidson at the time. Prior to that relationship, she and the late star were together romantically from 2016 to 2018 after bonding throughout years of friendship.
After Miller's passing, the sweetener songstress and her Staten Island-born beau went their separate ways. He's presently spending time with Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders, while Grande has moved on to marry Dalton Gomez, a real estate agent whose life is mostly out of the spotlight. Even though she's now with another, the former Nickelodeon star continues to make it obvious that there will always be room in her heart for her fallen former lover.
Revisit Ariana Grande and Mac Miller's Undeniable Chemistry in "The Way" Visual
On Saturday (March 25), the duo's 2013 collaboration, "The Way" celebrated its 10th birthday. Though Miller isn't here to commemorate the special moment himself, Grande did her part to uphold his legacy by posting about their joint effort on her Instagram Story. "I love you," she wrote at the bottom of the screen in tiny white font when sharing the song's accompanying visual this past weekend.
As DailyMail notes, the vocalist did her part to make sure that her strong feelings for Miller were clearly felt online. In the comment section of the same video, she once again wrote, "I love you." Throughout the years, the ponytail princess has often shared subtle but heartfelt tributes to her ex, who has gone on to inspire some of her most popular releases, such as "Thank U, Next." While she continues to remember their love in a positive light, others, such as Kanye West, have tried to ruin that narrative by insisting Pete was sending photos of him and Ariana Grande in bed together to her ex following their split, seemingly resulting in his overdose.
