While she’s taking some time out following the death of her former boyfriend Mac Miller, it seems that Ariana Grande is looking out for someone close to her ex: his dog, Myron.
Posting on Instagram earlier this week, the singer shared some videos of herself playing with her pets, captioned ‘all the kisses. Happy fall.’ Eagle-eyed fans were then quick to identify Myron, a pitbull mix, among her already extensive family of dogs, prompting speculation that Ariana has taken in Miller’s pet after he died from a suspected drug overdose earlier this month. Last weekend, too, Ariana was spotted walking some of her dogs around New York, and fans spotted Myron in the group.
Miller adopted Myron from Wylder’s Holistic Pet Center in Los Angeles back in 2017, when he and Ariana were still a couple, and the dog regularly made appearances on her social media accounts.
However, it’s not entirely clear how long Ariana has been looking after Myron; eagle-eyed fans have noted that as far back as August, her mother Joan name-checked the pitbull in a Twitter shout-out to her daughter’s dogs, writing ‘All my love to A’s babies Toulouse, Coco, Laf, Strauss, Pignoli, Cinnamon & Myron.’
Following Miller’s death on September 7th, Ariana has posted a number of heartfelt tributes, first sharing a black and white image of the rapper, then uploading a video clip of the couple.
‘I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will,’ she wrote. ‘I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this so many times. I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do.’
Later, Ariana’s representative confirmed that she and her current boyfriend, Pete Davidson, would not be attending the Emmy Awards, despite the comedian being nominated as part of the Saturday Night Live team.
‘Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend,’ the spokesperson told Entertainment Tonight. ‘She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline.’
