Mac Miller’s Family Responds To “Fraudulent” Memorial Events
Since Mac Miller’s passing in his Studio City, Calif., home in September, his friends and colleagues have banded together to bring fans “A Celebration Of Life” benefit concert. But this is not the only memorial event being held for the rapper, born Malcolm McCormick.
Several “fraudulent” fundraising events have surfaced claiming to have ties with the fallen rapper, forcing the McCormick family to issue a public statement about these events, Complex reports.
“The family of Malcolm McCormick, known best to the world as Mac Miller, has become aware of a number of fraudulent events recently announced under the guise of fundraising for causes on his behalf,” a family rep stated Wednesday (Oct. 10). “It should be known that the only event sanctioned by his family and contributing to The Mac Miller Circles Fund is the Mac Miller: A Celebration Of Life event taking place in Los Angeles on October 31. While the intent of further celebrating Malcolm’s life through these various efforts is appreciated, it is important that it be known to paying fans which of these are official or not.”
The family suggested to fans the best way to show support is by visiting the Mac Miller Circles Fund website, to stay up-to-date on upcoming sanctioned events.
