    Sometimes a single image can speak volumes.

    Ariana Grande took to social media over the weekend to post a black and white photo of her ex Mac Miller, who died Friday after an apparent drug overdose. The Pittsburgh native, whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, was 26 years old.

    In the photo, Miller looks up at the camera while sitting on the grass. It's unknown if Grande took the photograph. Grande shared the image without a caption and disabled the comments section. Over the weekend the singer was trolled on social media after some blamed her for Miller's death following their breakup in May.

    When announcing their breakup, Grande had previously said that Miller was "one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet," adding: 

    "I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!"
