FaZe co-founder Ricky Banks made front-page news after trashing an expensive Las Vegas hotel room, resulting in an estimated $30,000 in damages – and the star is finally speaking out about the incident.

According to reports from TMZ, the star and his squad had turned a suite at the Encore At Wynn Las Vegas into a “disaster zone,” resulting in broken furniture, holes in the walls, and soil from plants scattered across the floor.

A subsequent video of the damage proves this report true, showcasing a mass of debris strewn throughout the room – an offense that could have cost Banks up to five years in prison.

However, it doesn’t look like this is a punishment the FaZe mogul will receive, as he admitted during an episode of Adam22’s “No Jumper” podcast in November.

According to Banks, he wasn’t met with jail time, but rather a lifetime ban from the establishment – and a hefty fine.

“It’s been resolved with the hotel and casino,” he revealed. “I’m eighty-sixed for life. I’m banned forever. …which is completely fine. Honestly, it sucks, because it really is like the best [hotel] in Vegas. …it cost a lot of f***ing money. I’m not gonna talk about how much money it cost.”

FaZe Banks revealed the long-awaited consequences of his hotel room bash.

In fact, the social media star revealed that he doesn’t even know the total amount of the fine, calling the incident “scary.”

“We’ve got people,” he continued. “We’ve been talking from the beginning.”

In spite of the serious consequences of going “full send,” he revealed a humorous plan he’d cooked up in order to avoid potential punishment, explaining that he’d tried to get his friends to beat him up and bounce to try and stage a mock crime.

Unfortunately for Banks, this plan wasn’t agreed upon – but even though he managed to avoid jail time, he claims that it isn’t a case of celebrities getting special treatment, referring to pro Fortnite player FaZe Jarvis’s permaban from the game.

“In his case, being famous and being a f***king figure, like, f***s him,” he explained. “…He can’t make content.”

It seems that FaZe Clan has taken a slew of hard knocks lately – but that isn’t going to bring down esports’ biggest organization any time soon.

In a YouTube video and a series of TikToks, YouTube personality Trisha Paytas has publicly called out “evil” Jeffree Star and his hairstylist HairbyJay following a tense trip to Las Vegas earlier this year.

In a YouTube video entitled “Why I’m scared of jeffree and hairbyjay,” Paytas explains that she was left “hurt and disgusted” during the Valentines Day vacation – so much so, she even went home early.

Claiming that Star, HairbyJay and other guests spent the “awful” trip making fun of her weight, skin, spending and appearance, Paytas said: “Jeffree brought me on a trip to s**t on me and I can’t have a say because he paid for it.”

“They think they can just do that, that if you go on trip someone paid for they’re just allowed to p**s on you,” she continued. “In front of my face and behind my back.”

Hitting out at former friend and YouTuber Shane Dawson, Paytas criticized him for “constantly promoting” Star even though he has treated her poorly in the past.

She also claims that during the trip, HairbyJay overcharged her for wig services, but because she was “genuinely scared” of him, she paid anyway.

Breaking down in tears, she also showed a snippet of HairByJay’s Instagram live during her YouTube video, in which he calls Paytas a “stupid dumb b***h” and says that she should go on a diet because “all that fat is f*****g her brain.”

Jeffree later took to Twitter in response to these accusations. Claiming that he is “horrified” by what HairbyJay said during his live, he maintained in a Tweet addressed to Paytas: “let’s not pretend I had any part to play in that.”

Claiming in subsequent Tweets that Paytas had ignored his attempts to reach out to her, he continued: “I’ve already said my piece to her and if she ever wants to call or text me back, she will. ”

“What Jay said on live was f*****g disgusting and does not reflect how I’ve ever felt.”
