Ariana Grande has angrily denied responsibilty for ex-boyfriend Mac Miller's recent DUI and hit-and-run arrest, revealing their relationship was "toxic".

The musicians recently ended their relationship after nearly two years together. Following the split, Miller crashed his G Wagon into a power pole before fleeing the scene.

The rapper was arrested at his home shortly afterwards. TMZ reports his breathalyser test revealed he had consumed twice the legal alcohol limit.

Grande's fiery reply came after a Twitter user connected Miller's alleged drunk driving incident to her decision to end the relationship.

The tweet claimed Grande had dumped Miller for another man after he had "poured his heart out on a ten song album to her", calling it "the most heart-breaking thing happening in Hollywood."

Grande responded at length.

"How absurd that you minimise female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw isn't the case," she said.

The 'Problem' singer claimed only one track, 'Cinderella', from Miller's album The Devine Feminine was written about her.

"I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be," she said.

Referring to Miller's struggles with substance abuse, she continued, "I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course).

"Shaming / blaming women for a man's inability to keep his shit together is a very major problem."

Grande also said she hadn't previously shared how "hard or scary" things had been in the relationship until now.

Miller has been released from jail, but has remained quiet on social media.
