FaZe Clan’s Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks has revealed their reason behind his break-up from Alissa Violet after the YouTube couple confirmed the news on Twitter. 

Banks and Alissa Violet have had a seemingly rocky relationship ever since the FaZe Clan member admitted to having a physical relationship with Tana Mongeau previously.


The YouTube couple even confirmed on June 28 that they had a ‘fight’ but it wasn’t over Banks’ time with Mongeau. Yet, despite that, it all came to a head on July 6 when the pair spilled the beans on their break-up – confirming what many fans already feared. 

Alissa Violet, InstagramThe pair had seemingly been split up longer than fans first thought.

After the news surfaced late in the day, Banks quickly moved to dispel any potential rumors once Alissa had tweeted “single violet thrives.” The FaZe Clan star quickly offered up the reason behind their split.


He responded: “Alissa and I decided about a month ago that we should take some time apart. Love that girl to death and always will. I’ll never say a bad word about her. This shits about as hard to deal with as it gets. Please respect our privacy through this,” with a broken heart emoji attached. 

He followed up to state that he will always have “love and support” for Violet.

“To clarify too, this wasn’t one sided by any means,” he added. “Just like everything else we’ve ever done, it was a team decision. Alissa is the most amazing soul I’ve ever come in contact with. She deserves love and support. She’ll continue to have mine forever.”


While support flooded in for the pair from their respective fan bases, Banks received some love from Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney – despite the pairs recent rocky relationship and very public falling out.

Neither Banks or Violet have commented on the break-up since their initial tweets and considering their requests for privacy, there might not be a tell-all YouTube video hitting sub boxes anytime soon.
