Star Twitch streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney announced that he was a victim of a robbery following the $500,000 Fortnite x NFL Streamer Bowl charity event that the former FaZe Clan member had competed in.

Tfue was in Miami, Florida this week to participate in Twitch Rivals’ star-studded charity tournament featuring some of the world’s biggest Fortnite content creators and pro football players, in the lead up to Super Bowl LIV.

In the early hours of January 31, approximately seven hours after the competition had wrapped up, he tweeted out that he had gotten robbed, although not mentioning any additional details about the incident.

A lot of support and concern poured in from all corners of the Fortnite community in response to the tweet, and it wasn’t until nearly eight hours later that Tfue finally provided another update.

He revealed that the perpetrators stole his ‘Royal Oak AP Arabic Dial’ watch, which he provided a picture of in a post on his Instagram story.

While it’s not known exactly how much Tfue’s watch was worth, similar ‘Audemars Piguet Mens Royal Oak 41MM Steel VS Arabic Dial’ diamond watches usually go for tens of thousands of dollars, even as much as $40,000 for the 33 Ct on the Chrono24 watch website.

Shortly after this Instagram post, the Fortnite superstar provided another update on Twitter, this time letting everyone know he was alright and that the only damage done was the loss of his watch.

“I’m fine by the way,” he tweeted. “The guys ran away with my AP though.”

No other details are known about this incident at this time and it’s unclear whether or not Tfue will even share additional info since it’s safe to assume that there will be a police investigation into the robbery.

Twitch Esports - TwitterTfue and his partner, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, were in Miami, FL to compete in the $500,000 Fortnite x NFL Streamer Bowl charity tournament.

This incident took place shortly after Tfue and his partner, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, took second place at the Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl on January 30, winning $80,000 for charity.

The Twitch star was named tournament MVP for his stellar performances throughout the competition, which helped the duo earn 16 eliminations and an average placement of 7.25.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
