Last week, the U.S. Attorney’s Office confirmed that Cameron James Pettit had been arrested on federal charges of selling fentanyl-laced pills to Miller two days before the rapper died of an overdose.
TMZ reports that Grande believed “Pettit took advantage of someone suffering from addiction and should face harsh consequences for his role in Mac’s death.” The source also contended that Grande considers anyone “involved in supplying Miller drugs should be charged and convicted for contributing to his death from an accidental overdose.”
Pettit faces a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison if found guilty. According to the affidavit, another individual also supplied him with drugs in the lead up to his overdose, however, these substances did not contain fentanyl.
Grande opened up about Miller’s addiction and making music after his death in an interview with Vogue earlier this year. Read the biggest takeaways from the cover story here.
