Tee Grizzley’s car was shot at and his manager was killed during a shooting in Detroit on Tuesday night.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that a gunman opened fire on the rapper’s Cadillac Escalade. Jobina Brown, Tee Grizzley’s manager and aunt, was sitting in the back seat.
Tee was getting out of the front passenger seat after the car stopped when the shooter approached on foot and pulled the trigger, hitting Jobina on her left side. The driver of the SUV told cops he heard Jobina scream right before three to four shots were fired.
It’s unclear if Tee Grizzley was targeted in the attack, but neither he nor the driver were hit.
Tee stayed behind at the scene while the driver called police, and an ambulance rushed his manager to a hospital, where she died from her injuries. She was 41.
The two had a close relationship. Tee paid tribute to Jobina in a 2017 Facebook post, writing, “My manager My Aunty My Big Homie if you die I can’t tell the story cause I’m dying wit u.”
Tee Grizzley’s peers took to social media with their thoughts and prayers. “They place the heaviest loads on the strongest backs… Our prayers & condolences lil bro… Stay strong… I’m here if you need me King,” wrote T.I., who used the hashtag “#RIPJB.”
Lil Yachty added, “Praying for my bro. One of my real friends. In my thoughts till I hear from you. Love you broski.”
