It's been nearly two months since Mac Miller passed away of an apparent overdose at his home in San Fernando Valley.

Now, the reports that Miller's death was a direct result of his substance abuse have been confirmed by an autopsy and toxicology report.

According to findings released by the L.A. County Coroner's Office moments ago, Miller's death was the result of "multiple drug toxicity."

Fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol were all present in the 26-year-old's system at the time of his death.

According to TMZ, the amount of any one of those drugs would not have been enough to kill Miller, but the combination proved lethal.

The report also contains new information about the discovery of Mac's body, which was found by his assistant, who immediately called 911.

According to the recording of that call and the statement the assistant gave to police, Miller was found on his bed in a "praying position."

In his 911 call, the unidentified assistant described Miller as "blue" and stated that blood was coming out of his nose.

While a medical examiner previously described Miller's death as a "mystery," all signs pointed to a lethal overdose from the start.

Police found a large number of pills in Miller's home, including Xanax, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and generic Adderall.

A rolled up $20 bill with a white powdery residue was discovered in Mac's pocket.

And sadly, the cause of death does not come as a surprise to those who knew the rapper best.

Mac's struggles with addiction were well-documented over the years.

In May, Miller was arrested on hit-and-run charges after he crashed his car into a streetlight pole in Los Angeles and then fled the scene on foot.

When police arrested Miller at his home, the rapper blew twice the legal limit in a breathalyzer test.

The incident occurred shortly after Miller's breakup with Ariana Grande.

In response to the news, Grande tweeted, "Pls take care of yourself."

In a heartbreaking acknowledgment of his struggles with mental illness and addiction, the rapper sported tattoos that read, "So confused" and "Only so much time left in this crazy world."
