Man charged in connection with death of Ariana Grande's ex Mac Miller

Police have charged a man in connection with the death of rapper Mac Miller. Cameron James Pettit, 28, allegedly supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl.

Miller, who once dated Ariana Grande, was found dead of a drug overdose in September 2018 at the age of just 26.

A 42-page criminal complaint unsealed on Wednesday claimed the musician had asked to be given "percs", a prescribed painkiller containing oxycodone.

The complaint detailed Instagram direct messages sent between Pettit and others reacting to Mac's death.

He allegedly said: "I think I should probably not post anything… just to be smart."
When asked how he was, Pettit allegedly responded: "I am not great ... Most likely I will die in jail."

Mac, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, died on September 7 last year.
