“They were very much in love and I have to say, she was incredible when he was first sobering up. She was a fucking G to him,” said Shane Powers, a radio host.
Adding, “There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana. I saw that, I was around it. I took phone calls from her. ‘How do I help’, ‘What do I do?’ This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful to him being healthy. Because whether he was an addict or not, the way that Mac partied was not healthy. I gotta tell you, man, there was no one in his life more ready to go to the wall for him when it came to him being sober.”
He continued, “She was an unbelievably stabilising force in his life.”
This comes days after Mac was found dead in his Los Angeles home from an apparent drug overdose and trolls blamed Ariana for his death, prompting the singer to disable her Instagram comment section.
Shane also spoke out when those trolls flooded Ariana’s page. He tweeted:
Ariana Grande didn’t kill Mac. Mac killed Mac. Leave her alone. He’d be furious with ANYONE who made any shitty comment to her.
I’d fuckin know.
Leave her alone.

And now he has shared more details about their relationship.
Meanwhile, Ariana has yet to comment on Mac’s death, but she shared this photo of himself on her Instagram three days ago.
