Was YouTuber Tana Mongeau dating Mac Miller when he died?

Acclaimed rapper Mac Miller passed away Friday from a reported drug overdose. While many people shared their tributes, polyamorous YouTube Tana Mongeau took to social media to imply she was dating Miller when he passed away. Fans are now questioning Tana about revealing this type of personal information so publicly.

Tana, who has confirmed multiple times she’s been in a relationship with Bella Thorne (who in turn has been dating rapper Mod Sun) for almost a year, posted several heartfelt Tweets about Mac Miller’s passing after she learned that he died. However, what she posted on Instgram seemed to imply that they were more than friends.

“a week ago.. Malcolm James i loved you… i got the privilege of loving you for years and then getting to know you and finding out you were even better than I dreamed,” she wrote along with a screen shot of a text message exchange between the two of them. “you made me feel something, you were sweet to me every second.. you had this love for life and what you do that made me fall for you 10x harder… to feel like i was unraveling every part of your soul but have no idea the half of what you were going through. i wanted to come over last night… my soul is shattered… what i would do for you to tuck my hair behind my ear and kiss me one last time.. i love you Malcolm. i love you.”

She also tweeted that she had “spoke to him last night,” and claimed they would spend all day talking to each other most days.

The night before Mac Miller died Tana had attended a Pornhub Awards after party where she passionately made out with rapper Trippie Redd on the red carpet. She and Bella also confirmed multiple times this summer that they’re in a serious relationship, so if Tana was involved with Mac Miller – it was no doubt an open, polyamorous relationship.

Tana got a lot of backlash for allegedly chasing “clout” and influence over revealing their possible romance over social media. Others, however, pointed out that if they were together in some way she must be in an immense amount of pain and grief and should be given a break.

Miller had previously dated Ariana Grande, but their relationship ended this May. Instead of a statement, Ariana Grande simply posted a black-and-white photo of her ex-boyfriend on Instagram.

Miller has been very public about his struggles with substance abuse. In a 2013 interview with Complex he spoke about using lean, a drink made from codeine cough syrup, to self-medicate depression. “I love lean; it’s great,” he said at the time. “I was not happy and I was on lean very heavy [during the Macadelic tour.] I was so f–ed up all the time it was bad. My friends couldn’t even look at me the same. I was lost.”

He’s also reported using promethazine and cocaine. In 2015 he spoke to Billboard about toll daily drug use can take on a person. “I was doing a lot of drugs around that time,” he said about his past. “Which is another difference now: I’m not doing as many drugs. It just eats at your mind, doing drugs every single day, every second. It’s rough on your body.”
