Twitch star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed more details about his disastrous trip to Miami where he was robbed twice – losing both his phone and an Audemars Piguet Mens Royal Oak 41MM Steel VS Arabic Dial watch.

The Fortnite professional had been in Miami as a part of Super Bowl weekend to take part in the Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl competition alongside Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback Kyler Murray.

The pair had a number of eye-catching performances in the event but failed to capture the overall victory. Yet, once they had wrapped up playing Fortnite, Tfue shocked fans by revealing that he’d been robbed for the first time on January 31st and then once again a day later.

While he tweeted that he was ‘fine’ after the first robbery, in which he lost his watch, the Fortnite star gave fans a bit more insight into his wild weekend when he hopped back on stream for a short broadcast.

Explaining how he ended up losing the watch, Tfue noted that he was waiting for an Uber when he was approached by three ‘kids’ – with one of them grabbing his shoulder. After a back-and-forth exchange of words, the streamer realized that one had been going for his watch.

“He’s got two hands on my watch and he’s just pulling it like with all his force, and I’m like trying to pull my wrist away because I don’t want him to f**king take my watch and all I feel is the clip on the watch just bend and break off,” Tfue said.

The streamer added that the ‘kids’ in question quickly fled the scene after they were able to get the watch off his wrist, though he didn’t pursue them seeing as he was pretty drunk.

Tfue continued: “Honestly, like, I was so drunk at that moment that I was like ‘f**k it, I don’t even care, I’m not going to chase this kid down, it’s not even worth it’ and like, honestly, it was probably a good thing I was hammered because if I was sober I probably would have chased those kids down and probably been in jail.”

As for his phone, Tenney didn’t quite have the blow-by-blow details as he did with the loss of his watch. Instead, while waiting for his Uber, he tried to give his pockets a pat to make sure his wallet and phone were still there but couldn’t feel the phone.

“I’m like freaking the f**k out. I’m like call it, he tries calling it. My phone isn’t dead, it goes straight to voicemail. I’m like, I got f**king pickpocketed – that’s the first thing I think,” Tfue said. 

“Obviously, if I’d lost it, which I doubt I did, I’ll call it and it’ll ring but it went straight to voicemail which means somebody turned it off. So, obviously I knew someone gripped it, turned the phone off and put it in their pocket.”

While it’s obviously a terrible experience for the streamer – being robbed not once, but twice – recovering his phone or just getting a new one is somewhat easier than replacing his watch.

Whether or not he’ll be able to do so is unknown, but at least he wasn’t too badly shaken up by the experience and could give his fans a bit more insight.
