Cazzie David and Mac Miller became friends after their exes got together

One of the weirder stories to come out of the Grammy’s, which I mentioned in a post about Ariana Grande yesterday, was that Mac Miller’s mom, Karen Myers, went to the Grammys with Cazzie David. Cazzie is Pete Davidson’s ex-girlfriend and there was probably some overlap between Pete’s relationship with her and when he got with Ariana last year. Mac of course is Ariana’s late ex-boyfriend, whom she was on and off with before getting with Pete. It seemed rather random that Mac’s mom and Cazzie knew each other. E! reported yesterday that Cazzie had reached out to Karen on social media and that’s how they got to know each other. It turns out that Cazzie and Mac were actually friends before Mac passed away. They talked to each other after their exes got together although sadly they never met. Here’s US magazines explanation.

An unlikely duo. Mac Miller and Cazzie David developed a bond after their respective splits from Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, multiple sources exclusively tell Us Weekly.

“Cazzie and Mac never met, but started speaking because of Ariana and Pete’s relationship,” a source explains. “[They] leaned on each other.”

David, 24, hung out with the “Self Care” rapper’s mom, Karen Meyers, ahead of the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 10. David posted a picture of Meyers on her Instagram Story and added several heart and heart eye emojis.

“Cazzie and Mac’s mom have become extremely close and talk almost every day,” an insider adds. “Mac’s mom loves her.”

This makes sense and I bet that Cazzie and Mac had a lot to bond over while their exes had such a demonstrative relationship. Can you imagine seeing someone you dated for two years get engaged within less than a month to their next partner? Plus Pete and Ariana were so loved-up on social media and in interviews it was incredible. Cazzie and Mac must have dished the dirt about their exes. Now it seems sweet that Cazzie reached out to Mac’s mom, I bet she’s been a real comfort to her. I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose an adult child to addiction.

Also, some people are saying the Mac’s mom is shading Ariana by bringing Cazzie to the Grammys with her. I don’t see it that way at all, I just think she’s happy for Cazzie’s friendship. Also, the Zac Posen dress Ariana modeled on Instagram which she intended to wear to the Grammys (she skipped it in protest to how she was treated by producers) may have been a nod to Mac’s song Cinderella which he wrote about her, as it was a princess gown in the same color and cut. Ari also posted photos of Mac’s dog Myron, whom she adopted, sitting on the gown while she was wearing it.

On Mac’s birthday his mom posted his birth announcement. This really touched me.

Karen also posts photos of her other son, Mac’s brother Miller:

    Mac’s brother’s name is Miller Miller??

    • Bryn says:

      Macs last name was McCormick I think, Mac Miller was a stage name

      • Mrs. Peel says:

        It was Kaiser’s description “Karen also posts photos of her other son, Mac’s brother Miller” … which would mean his name is Miller Miller. Confusing in any event – thanks for clarifying!

    • me says:

      Their last name is McCormick. Mac Miller was a stage name…I never knew his brother’s name was miller though. They must have been close, that is sweet.

    I think it’s weird. Breakups suck and I’m sure it was really tough to watch those two splash their asap engagement all over the internet, but move on!

    • Erinn says:

      I think it’s SUPER weird. I don’t understand why she would ever choose to do this other than as a “screw them!” moment. It’s not like it was a different ex of Mac. It was just someone who’d reached out to him based on their exes dating.

  3. wowza says:

    Not trying to be a b****, but this still seems weird of Cazzie to attend the Grammys with her?

    • Skittlebrau says:

      Right? She had no one else to bring but someone who kind of knew but never met her late son? Not her other son? Not a family member or close personal friend of her son? I’m not shading her grief but it’s bizarre no matter how generously you read it.

    • Clare says:

      Same. Obviously people are struggling with a huge loss – which I can’t claim to understand – but this whole thing, including Ariana’s public commentary, is peak petty.

  4. Vanessa says:

    I’m sorry but to me this weird ok Cassie wasn’t not apart of Mac life in the way Ariana was . If anyone should have went to the Grammys with Mac mother should have been his brother not the woman of his brother ex girlfriend ex fiancé it’s weird it’s not sweet it’s stranger . I understand that Ariana grande is not everyone cup of tea could you have imagine if the roles were reversed and Cassie was a man the reactions would be completely different. She could have expressed her sincere condolences to his family but going to the Grammy with his mother . I kind see Ariana point with the Grammys they knew Mac wasn’t going to win but they invited his mother anyway I think they did it for publicity not out of sincerity not to be kind but to publicly might seem like see we care .

    • geekychick says:

      This is weird, but the fact that his ex is posting about him/alluding him in posts more than his mom?
      If we’re excusing Grande constantly bringimg him up and interjecting herself in almoat every conversation about him, why are we wandering and judging about the way his ACTUAL MOTHER ir handling and dealing with her grief?

      • Vanessa says:

        First of all nowhere in my comments I did never ever question Mac miller mother grief over her son so I don’t even know where you got that for . I stand by what I said Cassie involvement with Mac mother its weird unlike Cassie Ariana had a relationship with Mac and his family’s for years .

  5. Katie Keen says:

    Not impressed by Cazzie here. Posting that Instagram smacks of using a deceased man to hit back at your ex. Spoiled little girl.

    • Vanessa says:

      I agree I think Cassie did use Mac mother in way to hit back at Ariana to me that’s says she not over Pete . Honestly Cassie had no business at the Grammy she barely knew Mac their only connection were their exes .

      • mtam says:

        I agree with you 100%. I think people give Cazzie some benefit of the doubt cause she was technically one of the spurned parties in the relationship, but imagine if the roles were reversed and it was Ariana who had done this (befriended the mother of an ex of a girl you hate)—and someone deceased who can’t vouch for their connection—and then showed it off in public. People would be coming for her.

      • otaku fairy says:

        @Mtam: You’re right. There’s no question that she’d be made out to be a thirsty villainess for a stunt like that automatically- with the worst possible motives being assumed for her actions. If Cazzie had her level of exposure, that’s exactly how it would play out.

  6. original_kellybean says:

    I just watched the video of her in the blue dress with the dog. That dog is adorable.

  7. Lala11_7 says:

    It must be SO NICE…to be SO RICH…that you totally lose your ability to have common sense…..

  8. Valois says:

    Cazzie and I have mutual acquaintances (well they’re her friends and my acquaintances) and eh, judging by the people she’s friends with common sense and not being out of touch and self-absorbed are probably not her strongest suits.

  9. mtam says:

    Oof okay.. I was all over the comments yesterday wondering the motive behind this move by Cazzie, and even after reading this it does not come off as “sweet” to me.

    Cause thinking about it… I remember seeing an interview with Mac after Ariana and Pete were doing their thing, and he didn’t seem elated but he supported her publicly. And though Pete may have left Cazzie for Ari, Mac and Ariana we’re officially over when she and Pete got together. So this leads me to believe chances are Cazzie was the one to reach out to Mac to talk trash about their exes. But even if that’s not the case, the fact that they “leaned on eachother” and their communication was founded by their feelings about their exes makes me believe my previous point that she did all this because she’s not over her feelings for Pete and Ariana.

    Also, how many times where they in contact about their exes? Like how many times are you gonna have the same conversation with someone you don’t know and only talk to because of the exes? Like maybe a couple of times? —That’s not really a true connection, but the article is making it seem like Cazzie and Mac were close. I can’t imagine that’s what really happened there.

    But w.e another sus thing about this story is still befriending the mother. Like i get sending condolences but at one point that crossed the line. Like of course the mom plays a big part into who she lets in her life, but it makes me think Cazzie may have overplayed her connection to Mac in order to get close. And also making posts on social media about it and going to the grammys with them. It just seems so calculated. Like what does she gain from forming a relationship with a deceased person’s (she’s admittedly never met) parent. And it only leads me me to believe that she’s trying to get attention from Pete or Ariana or both. And in a way, it’s kind of using Mac’s parents for her own agenda.

    Like i would get it if Cazzie and Mac were good friends, but im sry contacting someone you don’t know a couple/few times to complain about exes is not a friendship. There’s a play here Cazzie is making and it’s coming off as self-serving to me.

  10. Lulu says:

    Yes it’s weird of Cazzie but this also seems like an f.u. to Ariana from Mac’s mum. She’s probably had enough of her bullsh*t too.

  11. Ellie says:

    So thirsty. I’m experiencing second hand embarrassment for Cazzie and her desperation.

  12. F says:

    Mac’s name is Malcolm McCormick and his brother is Miller McCormick, so his stage name is an amalgamation of both their names.
    According to mac’s ex gf, Nomi (who he reached out to and met up with before he passed and who knew him the longest), Mac was the one who broke up with Ari and they were over a while before she got with Pete. He had already started dating again and tho he was anxious about his new album, he was also really excited about moving forward and going on tour.
    It was Ari who wasn’t, hence the public spectacle with Pete, shading Mac in her Twitter posts and songs on her last album, and now her continued over the top mourning of him (literally dressing like Cinderella and posting it on social media to remind ppl that Mac wrote about you? Completely childish).
    In his interview with Zane Lowe, Mac was describing how strange to him was the public interest in his personal life, not ari moving on with Pete. And his best friends like Karen Civil, Thundercat, Schoolboy Q and Nomi have been shading ari on Twitter. So there’s some bad blood there. Mac had no hard feelings towards ari but his friends sure do.
    As for Cazzie, she was definitely the one to reach out to Mac, was pissed with Pete and despite everyone thinking karen meyers was close with ari, she deleted all pics of her and Mac together in Aug from her instagram. They’re not close anymore even if they did talk before the Grammys.

    So weird. She’s giving me Elizabeth Moss vibes in these pics.
