Ariana Grande is holding onto this piece of Mac Miller

And it’s lovely.

It was announced this month that US rapper Mac Miller had died of a suspected drug overdose, found dead in his California home.

There was an outpouring of love following the 26-year-old’s tragic death, with Mac having famously struggled with substance abuse for years.

Celebrities and fans came out in their thousands to pay tribute to the rapper, with Ariana Grande, his former girlfriend of two years, being among those to remember him.

In fact, Ariana is holding onto a piece of Mac, his dog Myron.

The No Tears Left To Cry singer posted a video of the Pit Bull cross alongside the caption, ‘All the kisses. Happy fall.’

And Myron should fit in well – with the 25-year-old already looking after nine rescue dogs – Lafayette, Toulouse, Strauss, Cinnamon, Sirius, Coco, Ophelia, Fawkes and Pignoli.

Earlier this month, the God is a Woman singer broke her silence on Mac’s death, releasing an emotional statement about her ex boyfriend, alongside a sweet throwback video of him laughing.

‘I adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will,’ she posted in a heartbreaking goodbye. ‘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.’

Ariana concluded her message: ‘the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. i hope you’re okay now. rest.’

Our thoughts are with Mac Miller’s loved ones.
