After the "No Tears Left To Cry" singer posted a photo on Instagram while wearing Miller's signature hoodie, a source close to the young beauty told exclusively that she did not attend because his death "is still too painful for Ariana."

At last night's event, Miller's immediate family and friends gathered, as well as musician pals such as John Mayer, Travis Scott and Chance the Rapper.

As fans know, following Miller's drug overdose death in September, Grande ended her six-month romance with former fiance, Pete Davidson, 26.

Aside from continuing with therapy, the friend told that "Ariana is now focusing her time and energy on her music and upcoming tour, which she is very excited about."

"It's what Mac would want," another source added.
