Ariana Grande has paid tribute to her former boyfriend Mac Miller a week after his death.
Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, was in a relationship with Grande between August 2016 and May 2018.
The 25-year-old singer posted a video on her Instagram account on Friday in tribute to who she has called her “dearest friend”.
In a caption next to the video Grande wrote: “I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will.
“I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it.
“We talked about this. So many times.
“I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend. For so long.
“Above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away.
“I really wanted to.
“The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. I hope you’re okay now. rest.”
In the short clip Miller appears to be about to tell a story before he realises Grande is filming him.
The pair then laugh together before Grande says: “It makes me happy.”
The Los Angeles Police Department said it was called to a “death investigation” at an address in the Valley Crest area of north Hollywood on 7 Friday September.
His family said in a statement: “Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26.
“He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans.”
A coroner has said Miller’s cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
The rapper is reported to have struggled with substance abuse and depression, and was caught drink-driving while two times over the limit in May.
He first gained a following at age 18 with his mixtape K.I.D.S. in 2010.
His best-known songs include Loud, Smile Back, and a collaboration with Grande called The Way.
His most commercially successful album was Blue Side Park in 2011, which topped the charts.
This year, his release Swimming reached number three on the Billboard 200 list of top albums.
