Ariana Grande: Did Her Own Reps Try to Keep Mac Miller’s Death a Secret?

As you’ve likely heard by now, rapper Mac Miller passed away on Friday after suffering what appeared to be an accidental drug overdose in his San Fernando Valley home.

Though he was an accomplished artist in his own right, Miller was likely best known in the mainstream for his two and a half year relationship with pop icon Ariana Grande.

Though Grande and Miller were reportedly not on speaking terms at the time of his death, sources close to the singer have revealed that Ariana was “shattered” by her ex’s untimely passing at the age of 26.

It wasn’t long after the rapper’s death that Grande paid tribute to Miller on Instagram.

But it seems she didn’t find out about her ex’s passing at the same time as the rest of the world.

Within minutes of TMZ reporting the news of Miller’s death, the story was picked up by media outlets over the world.

However, Grande was intentionally kept in the dark by her own staff.

How is such a thing possible in the smartphone era?

Well, it seems Ariana was busy promoting her acclaimed new album, Sweetener, and some of the people she trusts most made the conscious decision to keep Miller’s death under wraps so that she could focus on the task at hand.

At the time of Mac’s passing, Ariana was filming an interview for a BBC documentary about the making of Sweetener.

According to Radar Online, staff made the call to wait until filming was done for the day to tell her about Miller.

A source tells the site that they quickly regretted that decision as Grande “was understandably raging when she found out the news had been kept from her and gave everyone a dressing down when she’d finished crying.”

The insider goes on to describe a nightmarish scene right out of Black Mirror.

It seems that news quickly spread throughout the audience and the rest of the closed set, but Ari remained in the dark for hours:

“There was only a select number of fans allowed in for the filming of the BBC special, and a handful of TV bosses and publicists,” says the insider.

“Even though fans were told to turn off their phones for filming, many kept them on during the interview and knew about the news but none of them could interrupt to tell Ariana,” the sourcr adds.

“The people involved in the show also knew, but chose to let the cameras keep rolling as they didn’t want to disrupt a very expensive set-up since they knew Ariana would probably not want to carry on if she’d been told.”

Sadly, shortly after news of Miller’s death went public, Ariana was forced to disable comments on her Instagram page due to hateful trolls implicating her in ex-boyfriend’s passing.

Khloe Kardashian: Here’s My Trick to Keep Tristan Thompson from Cheating on Me!

Poor, poor Khloe Kardashian …

And yeah, that’s pretty much all anyone’s been saying about her for the past few months, after Tristan Thompson so very publicly cheated on her, but still.

She’s been kind of pitiful lately.

Back in April, just days before she gave birth the daughter she shares with Tristan, everyone on the whole entire planet found out that he’d been stepping out on her.

He was seen getting extremely friendly with two women at a hookah bar when Khloe would have been about three months pregnant.

Then, less than a week before their baby was born, he was filmed making out with another woman at a bar in New York, and there was even surveillance footage of him checking into a hotel with her.

In the months since then, there’s been dozens upon dozens reports of how Khloe is handling the situation.

But now, four months later, things are becoming pretty clear.

Khloe is staying with Tristan, for whatever reason, and she doesn’t seem to be unhappy.

Is she trying to keep her little family together?

Has she convinced herself that he’s too stupid to understand how much he hurt her?

Is she just that into his penis?

Anything is possible, but according to a new report from Hollywood Life, part of her plan to stay happy with Tristan involves following a few simple rules.

As a source close to the family explains, “One of her big new rules for their relationship is that is has to be totally fun and pressure free.”

“Her thinking is that if she can keep things light and sexy the way they were at the beginning of their relationship then Tristan won’t be tempted to cheat.”

Wow, that sounds great, doesn’t it?

Everybody knows the key to having a “totally fun and pressure free” relationship is to make rules about it!

That way, things really are fun and not just a sad attempt to hold a failing relationship together, you know?

Another part of Khloe’s plan, the insider says, is that “She’s banned her friends and family from asking them when they’re getting married.”

Also, “she’s making a big effort to treat him like a boyfriend, instead of her future husband.”

Yeah, they just had a kid together, so it’s definitely time to let things cool down.

It’s just so sad to hear things like this, things that make it sound like Khloe thinks it’s her fault that Tristan cheated.

Because that’s what all of this really comes down to, right?

She’s taking on the responsibility of making things light and fun and easy while he’s the one who messed up, and it’s hard to watch.

Hopefully she’s able to either fully forgive Tristan and move past everything that happened or just leave him for good, because this sort of thing?

It just can’t work.

Jim Bob Duggar: Ladies, Here’s How to Keep Your Husband Happy

For most people, Jim Bob Duggar is up there with O.J. Simpson on the list of people who are least qualified to dole out relationship advice.

But some folks look at old JBD as a romantic role model.

After all, if your goal is to sire a small army and then make a bunch of weirdly strict rules governing how they're allowed to use their own genitals, the Duggar patriarch is your man.

Jim Bob and Michelle celebrated another wedding anniversary this week, and they decided to flip the script by giving a gift to fans in the form of preachy marital advice.

So put on your tapered jeans or your floor-length skirt and allow Jim Bob to school you in the ways of romance:

1. Laying Down the Law

Jim Bob began his latest sermon by listing the seven things that every man needs from his wife. Somehow, “crimped fright-wig hair” didn’t make the list.

2. A man needs a wife who is loyal and supportive

We guess this one is self-explanatory. Unfortunately, Jim Bob never taught his sons the importance of being loyal and supportive, right, Josh Duggar?

3. A man needs a wife who honors his leadership

As for this one … well, it’s anyone’s guess what the hell this means. All we know is that it sounds super cult-y and the Duggars love them a good cult mentality.

4. A man needs a wife who develops inward and outward beauty.

We suppose this one was inevitable. Ladies, Jim Bob wants you to stay hot for your men. And remember, there’s no plastic surgery for inner beauty.

5. A man needs a wife who will make appeals, not demands.

As in, she appeals to you to stop issuing so many freakin’ demands. Like there aren’t enough rules for the Duggars to follow already.

6. A man needs a wife who understands his need for time alone with God

“God” is a versatile term here. It can mean the monotheistic deity of the Abrahamic religions, or the stack of Playboys you keep in the shed.
