Glover stated that police responded to a call from Grier, who stated that he was fighting off two armed and masked home introducers.
Officers claim Grier confessed to shooting Destiny in the face, while a neighbor says they overheard an argument at the house before police arrived.
Grier also told the cops that he is related to Young Thug, according to Glover. Grier is the son of Thug's oldest sister, according to sources close to the Atlanta rapper.
Grier has been charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend, according to Glover. So far, Thug's legal team has made no comments about Grier's arrest.
Thug is currently in jail after being arrested as part of a RICO indictment against YSL. A judge issued an order this week to protect witnesses in the case after prosecutors claimed those testifying had received death threats.
