Hi , there will be a grip, they generally dont come out straight away, i'd say around August/September, the camera it self wont be available till mid june, i think.

And you are basing this claim on what? Previous releases? As mentioned earlier, there are no physical signs that it will allow a batterygrip.

Or have you heard anything else?

Watch the Adorama video. Rudy Winston stated there are no plans for a grip.

Rudy also corrected the Adorama guy and clearly stated that the R7 was never intended to be a 7DII successor and the '7' is just coincidental and not intended as a reference to the 7D DSLR line.

Perhaps the R7 should have been named R70 and the R10 should have been R700

What’s in a name? It does a lot more than the 7D2 in most ways and that is what most wanted. Smaller body, no gps, no flash and a few other things are not there but in every other way it seems a big step up. Rudy said it was placed between the 90D and the 7D2, which makes sense as the two lines overlapped somewhat.

I suppose you cannot keep everyone happy. Some wanted smaller bodies, some wanted larger for instance. DSLRs definitely grew very large compared to their film predecessors.
