The "Attention" star then became quite tearful, as he said "I always thought I'd be the one to help him get clean and to lead him onto the path of a good, clean, sober life". According to Powers, Grande had a positive influence on Miller when they were dating.

Following Miller's death, Puth, known for collaborating with Wiz Khalifa on the song See You Again, tweeted to say he had texted the rapper's phone. "There was no one in his life more ready to go to the wall for him when it came to him being sober", Powers added. At one point, he even credited the late rapper's ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, for being "unbelievably involved and helpful" with Miller's sobriety journey.

Mac Miller's untimely death at 26 last week has ushered in a torrent of support, love, and memorializing from his peers in the music world and beyond. A friend claims that Grande wanted him to be healthy more than anything else.

At a tour stop in Chicago, as The Fader points out, Childish Gambino offered his take on Miller's death as well, pausing the show for a heartfelt musing on how the two complemented each other through the years. He was found unresponsive around noon on Friday, September 7, in a bedroom at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Speaking to E! News, the 26-year-old singer said: "We talked nearly every day and I don't get a lot of friends who come into my life who I hit it off with so quickly". The L.A. County Coroner is still awaiting toxicology results, reports TMZ.
