Young Thug‘s family is really going through the motions right now as another family member has found himself behind bars and facing serious charges.

TMZ is reporting that Young Thug’s nephew, Fardereen Deonta Grier has just been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend, Destiny Fitzpatrick. According to the report, police were called to a residence outside of Atlanta this past Wednesday (July 6) and when police arrived they found Fitzpatrick lifeless in a pool of blood near the front door. Grier for his part was crying when police found him.

East Point PD spokesperson Allyn Glover told the outlet that Grier told them he was Young Thug’s nephew and the son of Thugger’s oldest sister. A source close to Young Thug confirmed that Grier is indeed his nephew though we’re not sure why he would offer up that info to the police. Maybe he thought they’d go easier on him if they knew he was a celebrity’s family member?
