Miller struggled with substance abuse and was relatively open about his problem. Friends close to him say he was struggling after having broken up with his longtime girlfriend and fellow music sensation Ariana Grande, who quickly became engaged to SNL star Pete Davidson after their split.

Miller was recently in the news after he totaled his Mercedes G-Wagon in the LA area earlier this summer. He blew twice the legal limit for blood alcohol content at .15.

It’s not immediately clear what he overdosed on. Check back for updates.
