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.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
