BACK TO SLIDE

The "Watching Movies" rapper's arrest comes after his split from singer Ariana Grande earlier this month after two years of dating. Though clearly, the two are still on good terms. Following news of the breakup, 24-year-old Grande took to her Instagram Stories to share a sweet message about her ex.

"Hi! This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet Malcolm McCormick," she wrote, referring to Miller's legal name. "I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!"

"Unconditional love is not selfish," she continued. "It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it's not you. I cant wait to know and support you forever and I'm so proud of you!!"
