Cardi B shares Grammy with the late Mac Miller after ex Ariana Grande tweets 'trash'

Cardi B has taken to social media sharing her Grammy award with late rapper Mac Miller, following a now-deleted Twitter rant by his ex Ariana Grande.

In an Instagram video taken after winning Best Rap Album, Cardi B listed off a number of people to thank, before paying tribute to Miller, who died of an accidental drug overdose last year.

"You wanna know something?

"I read an article that Mac Miller's family said that if you don't win, they wanted me to win so I'm sharing this Grammy with you, mother**ker," she said.

"Rest in peace! And thank you, everybody."

The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper also shared the US Weekly article in question, in which a source close to Miller's family claimed they were "rooting" for Cardi B in case he was passed over for the award.

"WE WON A F**KIN GRAMMY," she captioned the post.

Following the award announcement, Miller's ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande took to Twitter to express her outrage, writing "trash" and "literal bullshit," before deleting the tweets.

The 25-year-old pop star, who dated Miller for around two years, later clarified that her comments were not directed at Cardi B.

"Nothing to do w [sic] her," she replied to a fan. "Good for her. I promise. I'm sorry."

Grande appears to have been upset that Miller's grieving parents Karen Meyer and Mark McCormick were invited to attend the ceremony despite the fact he did not win.
