No caption accompanies the intimate photo, and Grande disabled comments on the Instagram post. He casually sits on the ground in the shot, staring up at her adoringly.

The day the news of Grande and Miller's breakup broke, the rapper was involved in a auto crash while under the influence, which first kickstarted hate for Grande.

In footage shared by one of Miller's fans that emerged on Saturday, the rapper could be seen in good spirits the night before his death as he played the keyboard while streaming live on Instagram to the delight of his followers.

At times, Miller's personal life attracted as much - if not more - attention than his professional accomplishments, particularly in the case of his relationship with singer Ariana Grande.

The Self Care rapper went into cardiac arrest in a bedroom at his home outside Los Angeles around noon Friday, and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene, according to a report by TMZ.

Within weeks, Grande had begun dating Pete Davidson, and the pair confirmed their engagement in June. At the time she left Miller, she said she "adored him endlessly", but called their relationship "toxic", insinuating he had issues with substance abuse. "Except they actually knew this person and you didn't", the singer tweeted Friday. Great man. I loved him for real. "Let's please stop doing that. of course i didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was. i will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well (sic)". In an interview published just days before his death, Miller told NY magazine he was trying to tame his negative emotions. "Pete is unbelievable, he's so solid, and he's like, totally Ariana's rock, her shoulder to cry on, support system, voice of reason, best friend, everything", a source close to Ariana EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. "Ariana is very upset".
