FaZe Clan co-owner Ricky ‘Banks‘ Banks has sent an outburst of Twitter posts directed at his now-former player, Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney, shortly after the streamer’s contract with the organization was supposedly leaked.

On May 23, following Tfue’s demands that the contract be released, TheBlast acquired what they claim to be the original contract, which largely supported Tfue’s accusations against FaZe Clan.

Banks had previously confirmed that FaZe themselves would release the contract, but were awaiting approval when the contract was leaked.

YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem shared a private message from Tfue’s brother, Jack ‘Joogsquad’ Tenney, claiming that the Fortnite Battle Royale pro was aiming to launch his own esports organization, and this was why, at least partly, he was trying to leave FaZe.

Instead of allowing Tfue to leave, FaZe apparently made numerous offers to him with a better contract, but were rebuffed – presumably as the player was set on making his own org.

Banks saw this as a revelation which painted Tfue’s previous claim that his moves were intended to clean up the esports industry and protect ‘kids’ being exploited, as ostensible, hiding his ulterior motive.

Banks admits Tfue’s initial contract was “horrible”

In a flurry of tweets, Banks admitted that the initial agreement presented to and signed by Tfue was “horrible”, but called him a “selfish asshole who doesn’t give a fuck about anyone but himself.”

He then reaffirmed that FaZe Clan had every intention of making the contract publicly available, saying: “I have nothing to hide”, adding that had made the mistake of allowing “shit people” to run the business.

Banks said that he now plans on releasing “all the contracts we’ve since offered Tfue to try and make this right”, but which were refused by the player.

In a final message to Tfue, Banks pleaded that they meet in person to resolve the dispute. He also claims he still “loves” Tenney, despite the ongoing controversy.

Tfue is yet to respond to either the leaked contract or Banks’ Twitter posts, but the legal battle to have his contract voided is believed to be ongoing.
