LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Federal prosecutors have charged a Los Angeles man in connection with the death of rapper Mac Miller who died in 2018 after overdosing on drugs.
According to a federal criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday, prosecutors allege that Cameron James Pettit supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing cocaine, alcohol, and fentanyl, a powerful opiate.
According to the indictment, Miller had asked to be provided with the prescription painkiller Percocet, which contains oxycodone, a significantly less potent opiate that fentanyl.
The complaint also detailed social media messages from Pettit following Miller’s passing, suggesting he understood the gravity of the potential charges leveled against him.
When asked via social media how he was doing, Pettit allegedly responded: “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail.”
At the time of his death, Miller was gearing up for a tour behind his fifth studio album “Swimming” which he released last year.
The indictment also details Miller, whose real name is Mark McCormack’s apparent solicitation of prostitutes who were alleged to have delivered the drugs to him.
In the series of text messages, Miller requests that an alleged prostitute Mia Johansson provide him with a variety of pharmaceuticals, as well as apparent assignations with other alleged prostitutes named Gia and Carla.
