Pop superstar Ariana Grande is still having a hard time dealing with her ex-boyfriend’s death. The singer has stepped forward to speak on Mac Miller‘s departure a week after his passing.

Grande went to Instagram Friday (September 14) with some rare footage of Miller and a heartfelt message to him.

A few days ago, Grande initially reacted to Miller’s death with a captionless pic.

In July, Mac came clean on his publicized split from Ariana.

“Life is stressful. So, of course there were stressful times. It’s not that unique. You know, like, I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it’s that simple.” (Beats 1)

Miller also admitted he hadn’t kept up with the buzz behind Grande and her fiancé Pete Davidson‘s engagement.

“Like, I haven’t been on the Internet. People have assumed that I’m [like] ‘Are you OK? Is everything OK?'” Because I was about to drop [my new album]. It just all seemed kind of unimportant, the need to show people I was OK. Like, what is that? Where does that come from? Why? Why do we have this need to use social media and the internet?” (Beats 1)
