U.S. rapper Mac Miller, whose debut album Blue Side Park topped the charts in 2011 and who dated singer Ariana Grande for a time, has died at the age of 26.

Celebrity news site TMZ said that Miller was found dead from an apparent overdose in his Los Angeles-area home and US Weekly said it also confirmed his death.

The 26-year-old struggled with substance abuse for years, including during a high-profile relationship with pop star Ariana Grande.

"Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26".

"Authorities were called and Miller was pronounced dead at the scene at 11.51am".

If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse, contact the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) National Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357). "It was like 'diet, carrots, and Mac Miller'".

He told Rolling Stone at the time: "Have I done drugs?" Love and prayers to his family and friends.

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.

After their breakup, Grande had responded to a fan who blamed her for the rapper's reported DUI arrest, saying doing so was minimizing her own self-worth.

"I used to rap super openly about really dark s--", he said of his past music in an interview with Vulture published on Thursday.

He supported her through the tragedy and returned to the city with her for her One Love Manchester fundraising concert.

According to his website, the Pittsburgh native was going on tour starting October 27th in San Francisco, California to promote his new album 'Swimming'.

Another source said: "Despite their split, Ariana had always been supportive of his sobriety".

In early August, Miller had taken to Instagram in a since-deleted post to assure fans that he was "okay" in regards to his mental state and was looking forward to touring.
