Charlie Puth has revealed he tried to get Mac Miller sober in the months before his death from a suspected overdose.

The singer told E! News he felt he “didn’t do enough” to help before Miller’s sudden death last week.

“We talked almost every day and I don’t get a lot of friends who come into my life who I hit it off with so quickly,” Puth said.

“I had known him for about six months, but we became really close, we became really good friends and I always thought I’d be the one to help him get clean and to lead him on to the path of a good, clean, sober life.”

The rapper went into cardiac arrest at his LA home on Friday, People reported.

Over the weekend Miller’s mother shared a photo of her and the rapper attending a baseball game, captioning the photo with a love heart emoji.

Miller's ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande has also shared a tribute on Instagram to Miller, posting a candid black and white photo of him.
