"They have been friends for years and Elliot is also close with Sofia’s brother, Miles,” an insider told ET.
According to the report, Grainge is the son of Lucian Grainge, the CEO and chairman of Universal Music Group. He is also the owner of a record label named 10K Projects, which has signed Trippie Redd and Tekashi6ix9ine.
