Popular Fortnite Battle Royale pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is at odds with esports organization FaZe Clan, after suing them over his “oppressive” contract – but YouTubers Jake and Logan Paul don’t appear to be big fans of Tenney’s legal action.

The Paul brothers discussed the matter during the first video of their new joint YouTube channel on May 26, where Jake Paul appeared to sympathize with FaZe, referencing his own experience as a talent manager for Team 10 – an organization that has infamously seen a slew of YouTubers “blow up” and subsequently leave.

“They know everything the agreement,” Jake explained. “They know it. It’s communicated. …like, ‘You are going to blow up. That’s our job, is to blow you up.’ The blow up happens, and then all of the sudden it’s like, ‘Poof! This isn’t fair anymore! I don’t remember signing that contract when I first started!’”

While Logan argued that the talent may have felt “taken advantage of” during a naive stage in their lives, he went on to agree that such talent likely wouldn’t have blown up without their agency, claiming that the entire debacle between Tfue and FaZe Clan hasn’t been handled in a professional manner.

“Doing it in the public eye has a weight to it,” Logan said of the drama. “It blows everything out of proportion. It’s not handled professionally, it’s not handled in the right way.”

Jake and Logan Paul wouldn’t be the first YouTubers to publicly comment on the matter, either; while the brothers appeared to side with FaZe, H3H3’s Ethan Klein called Tfue’s contract “evil” and “predatory,” claiming that the agreement is an “embarrassment” to the esports and internet entertainment industries.

“That kind of clause has no place in a contract,” Klein said during an episode of the H3 podcast. “In the real world, that would be so illegal, so wildly inappropriate. For them to even include this is shocking, it’s appalling, it’s a shame. It’s a disgrace. It’s an embarrassment.”

While Tfue’s contract has since been released, FaZe CEO Lee Trink claims that Tfue wants out of the agreement in order to start his own esports team, rather than taking the numerous other avenues allegedly offered to him by the organization.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

His Lamborghini Aventador is a special edition LP 700-4 model.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
