“He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends, and fans,” his family wrote in a statement obtained by CNN through Miller’s publicist.
There were no details on the cause of his death.
The Los Angeles Police Department told CNN that officers responded to a call for a death investigation at the 11600 block of Valleycrest Road just before noon local time. The coroner’s office will handle the investigation, according to police.
“Mac was a hugely gifted and inspiring artist, with a pioneering spirit and a sense of humor that touched everyone he met,” Tom Corson, co-chairman and COO of Warner Bros. Records, Miller’s label, said in a statement. “Mac’s death is a devastating loss and cuts short a life and a talent of huge potential, where the possibilities felt limitless. We join all of his fans across the globe in extending our thoughts 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. The pair dated for almost two years and recorded multiple songs together, including “My Favorite Part and “The Way.” Grande and Miller ended their relationship in May. Shortly after their split, Grande started dating “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson. The couple got engaged weeks later.
