Ariana Grande’s ex-boyfriend was found dead at his Los Angeles home in September last year.

Ryan Reavis, 36, of Arizona, has been charged with possession of marijuana and prescription drugs.

He was also charged with two weapons offences.

It comes after Cameron Pettitt, 28, was charged with selling Miller drugs before his death.

Prosecutors claim Mac had asked Pettitt to be given “percs”, a prescribed painkiller containing oxycodone.

Instead he was allegedly given a deadly concoction of xanax, cocaine and fentanyl – a synthetic opioid 50 times stronger than heroin.

Music star Miller died two days later.

Pettit, of Hollywood, Los Angeles, is charged with one count of distribution of a controlled substance and if convicted faces 20 years in prison.

‘LACED WITH FENTANYL’

U.S. Atty. Nick Hanna said in a statement: “Fentanyl disguised as a genuine pharmaceutical is a killer — which is being proven every day in America.

“Drugs laced with cheap and potent fentanyl are increasingly common, and we owe it to the victims and their families to aggressively target the drug dealers that cause these overdose deaths.”

Ariana and Mac had dated for nearly two years and following their split said they would remain “the closest of friends”.

She led a heartbreaking tribute to the tragic star at Coachella music festival this year.

After their breakup, Ariana said: “I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be.

“I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years.
“Of course I didn’t share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was.”

A male friend is understood to have made the emergency call from Mac’s home.

Audio from the emergency dispatch reveals they were called for a patient in cardiac arrest.

Ariana first met Mac when they recorded The Way together in 2013, and the pop star admitted last year she had had feelings for him for a long time before they got together romantically.

She said: “We have loved and adored and respected each other since the beginning, since before we even met, just because we were fans of each other’s talent.”
