After a public feud between streaming stars Turner 'Tfue' Tenney and Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins, Jessica Blevins, Ninja's wife and manager, has accused Tfue of purposefully trying to feud with her husband because he's in dire straits financially.

The ordeal began after Tfue accidentally leaked the private phone number of YouTuber Mr Beast, as he co-streamed the Rock, Paper, Scissors charity event that was meant to be streamed exclusively on Mr Beast's channel.

Ninja criticized Tfue both for streaming the event on his personal Twitch, rather than directing viewers to the main YouTube stream, as well as the accidental leak of Mr Beast's number.

Although Tfue apologized to Mr Beast, and donated $10,000 to the cause, he was quick to hit back at Ninja on Twitter. He said "Ninja shouldn't be talking sh*t because he's a p**sy and needs to keep his god damn mouth shut."

Blevins claims that Ninja only spoke out originally because there was a rumor spreading that Ninja was to blame for the leak. "Somehow everyone was trying to blame this on Ninja (per usual) which is why I'm saying something," she tweeted.

But, when Tfue's brother Jack came to his defense, Jessica hit back, accusing Tfue of streaming the event when he wasn't meant to because "the reality is Turner is desperate for money."

She also suggests this is why Tfue is trying to create a "public fight" with Ninja, in an attempt to stir up drama, leading to more views and attention.

Clarifying, Jessica continued: "He's been paying legal fees, and if Faze wanted to, they could take back millions in tournament money. No sponsors. It really is the only explanation for why he pulls the shit he does."

Jack responded again, saying Jessica doesn't know Turner, and highlighting that he donated $10,000, just because he "felt bad."

Jessica also appeared to dispute Jack Tenney's claim that Tfue was the biggest streamer on Twitch, by mentioning three other top streamers who rival his popularity: TimTheTatman, Dr Disrespect, and Summit1G.

Jack called this petty, but Jessica said she was only responding to Tfue's goading. "Turner wanted Tyler to start saying shit to his face? Here it is."

Tfue and Ninja appear to have moved on from the drama now, but it's clear there is no love lost between the pair. Despite being two of the most popular gaming personalities on the planet, it doesn't look like they will be doing up in Fortnite any time soon.
