The ongoing feud between Fortnite superstar Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore and FaZe Clan shows no signs of slowing down after the org released a statement he describes as “completely false”.

Fortnite star Turney ‘Tfue’ Tenney shocked the world after he revealed he would be pursuing a lawsuit against FaZe Clan over an “oppressive contract” back on May 20 – with shocking details of his current deal being revealed.

Naturally, questions marks were immediately raised over the future of his long-term friend and teammate Cloak, who subsequently removed FaZe from all of his social media accounts as well as his Epic Games tag.

Weeks later, Cloak has finally spoken out on his future revealing he has actively been trying to leave FaZe for the past six months; way before the Tfue lawsuit was filed.

FaZe released a statement confirming they were working together to engineer his departure, but also claimed they were open to offers from other teams for the play, which Cloak has dismissed as “false”, saying he has no intentions to join another team.

“You guys saw the contract – you can see for yourself,” he said. “FaZe is a great org and Banks is a great person.”

“They released a statement saying they’re working to sell me which is completely false.”

The 24-year-old stated he was not willing to be transferred, as per the FaZe statement, and also revealed he doesn’t plan to join another team amid speculation he could be joining 100 Thieves or Tfue’s potential new org.

He said: “I don’t want to be transferred – I don’t know why that was thrown in there. I could have gone the whole public route but I didn’t want to.

“I don’t plan to join another org – I just want to focus on myself.”

Cloak promised on Twitter that another stream would be forthcoming on June 23 with “no filter” as “everything is coming out” meaning there could be yet another twist in this ongoing feud.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
