Massively popular Fortnite Battle Royale pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has taken legal action against esports organization FaZe, which CEO Lee Trink attributed to him wanting to start his own team – but Tfue had a hilarious response to Trink’s theory.

Tfue addressed the rumor during an episode of the Konkrete podcast on May 29, where he claimed that he’d never mentioned wanting to start his own organization and wouldn’t have the time to, even if he did.

“I never said that once,” Tfue said of the matter. “Hell no, I don’t have time to run a company. I’m too stupid, dude. I can’t even read a contract, what makes you think I can run an esports organization?”

Tfue likewise spoke out on the drama surrounding his “oppressive” contract with FaZe, calling himself a “complete and total fucking dumbass” for signing the agreement while simultaneously arguing that he shouldn’t have been given “an illegal contract to begin with.”

“Whether you’re in the music industry or in the gaming industry, you need your own lawyer,” Tfue advised. “You need somebody to watch your back. Even if you don’t have a lot of money, I think it’s worth it to burn a little bit for some legal advice.”

Tfue’s contract was found to have major splits in favor of FaZe, with the org getting 80% of brand deals brought in by themselves and 50% of appearance fees, in-game merchandise, and brand deals brought in by Tfue – prompting him to take legal action against the esports giant.

Tfue’s contract with esports giant FaZe saw massive splits in favor of the organization – splits that prompted Tfue to take legal action against FaZe.

The gaming pro’s subsequent lawsuit made waves across the internet, with even the likes of YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg speaking out on the matter, confused as to why FaZe won’t simply release Tfue from the contract in wake of the drama.

“Tfue clearly wants nothing to do with FaZe Clan, so what kind of relationship are you preserving,” Kjellberg speculated. “The culture and the relationship of gaming in general if they drop him would be hurt, what the fuck are you talking about? That culture is ruined because you didn’t drop him.”

Tfue’s lawsuit has appeared to ruin his relationship with FaZe co-owner Ricky Banks, who had harsh words on the subject after hearing news of the lawsuit on the outset.

Tenney has since announced plans to move in with Duos teammate Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, who has also hinted at leaving FaZe.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
