"I wasn't doing that for attention. I was trying to tell you how much i loved him"

UPDATE: Tana has now posted a full video response to the backlash

Tana Mongeau has been forced to apologise for her tribute to rapper Mac Miller, who tragically passed away aged 26 last Friday (Sept 7).

In her initial Instagram post, Tana posted a screen grab of a recent conversation between her and Mac, with a caption that seemed to suggest that she and Mac had a relationship, including the sentence: "what I would do for you to tuck my hair behind my ear and kiss me one last time". Fans of Mac started accusing Tana of making his death about her.

The full caption reads:

"A week ago... Malcolm James I loved you. I got the privilege of loving you for years, and then getting to know you and finding out you were even better than I dreamed. You made me feel something, you were sweet to me every second, you had this love for life and what you do that made me fall for you 10x harder... to feel like I was unraveling every part of your soul but have no idea the half of what you were going through. I wanted to come over last night...my soul is shattered...what I would do for you to tuck my hair behind my ear and kiss me one last time. I love you Malcolm. I love you."

Tana also wrote a series of tweets about Mac on Friday night: "There's no way, I spoke to him last night,  there's no f--king way," she wrote. "He was so strong and so funny and so fucking talented ... the little things he would do to make me smile ... that voice... his voice will echo in my head forever."


Tana has kept the tweets up but has since deleted her original Instagram caption and changed it to "i love you Malcolm. i love you".

In a new series of tweets this morning (Sept 10), Tana has posted a lengthy apology for her original caption:

"I just want to apologize to ANYONE that was upset by my post or took it the wrong way. bottom line. i loved malcolm so much & never would want any one to think my intentions were anything but true. he was truly the only thing bringing me happiness in such a depressed part of life.

I looked up to him for years. he was my hero. getting to know him changed my life.. that is why i was so quick to share my personal love for him. i wanted to show you the perspective i saw him from. human. not just an rip post. not just a tweet & something everyone moves on from.

I want him to be remembered for the incredible person he was & i was sharing my experience.. however i can see how people could perceive that post differently not knowing how close i was with him & that breaks my heart & i'm sorry for that. it isn't about me. it never will be.

It's about Malcolm James Mccormick & how fucking incredible he was. i was seeing so many posts dehumanizing him. he wasn't just an ex or unhappy. he was human. he was happy. he was excited for tour. he was excited to shoot that music video.. he was excited for life.

I just want anyone who sees this to know how much i loved him & how heartbroken i am. i'm sorry to anyone i've upset because that was truly my last intention. i wasn't doing that for attention. i was trying to tell you how much i loved him. but i understand how it could've been perceived differently and again i'm sorry. but there's no "affair" or any of those crazy allegations.. just someone i spent all of my time for awhile lately consumed with talking to & loving. but i'm truly sorry if anything i said painted a different picture. all i want for him is rest and peace. rest in peace Malcolm. the truest goat."

What do you think of Tana's apology?
