It appears Mac Miller had prepared for tragedy.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the late rapper established a trust in 2013 and executed a will at that time. Miller’s parents, Mark and Karen McCormick, are reportedly listed as the primary beneficiaries in the will, as well as the trustees of his estate. The rapper’s attorney David Byrnes was designated as the estate administrator; but if Byrnes is unable to fulfill his obligations, the rapper’s brother, Miller McCormick, will become the administrator.
The Blast reports there’s a chance other beneficiaries could’ve been listed, but it seems Miller’s parents will receive the bulk of his fortune; however, it’s still unclear exactly how much money is sitting in his estate.
Miller died inside his Southern California home last week. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has not provided an official cause of death, as they are still waiting for toxicology tests to be completed.
“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,” his family said in a statement to Complex last week. “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”
Miller’s body has since been transported to his hometown of Pittsburgh, where his funeral will take place. In the week since his death, thousands of people have paid tribute to the Swimming rapper on social media. His former girlfriend, Ariana Grande, broke her silence on the tragedy with an emotional letter posted on Instagram.
“[…] I’m so sad I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend,” she wrote. “[…] So sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to. The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. I hope you’re okay now. Rest.”
