Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is one of the world’s most popular Twitch streamers and professional Fortnite Battle Royale players, boasting over six million followers on Twitch due to his skills – but his legal scuffle with esports giant FaZe have critics wondering if he’s responsible for some of the org’s internal conflicts.

Tenney filed a lawsuit against FaZe over his “oppressive” contract in late May, which saw major revenue splits in favor of FaZe and a non-complete agreement that would put Tfue out of competitive gaming for six months.

However, that wasn’t the only drama FaZe would be involved in, by far; the org is now seeing criticism for signing an allegedly underage player, who they’d claimed was 13 years old.

FaZe ClanH1ghsky’s signage to FaZe Clan stirred up controversy, after Tfue’s lawsuit against the org claimed that the youngster had only been 11 when added to their ranks.

FaZe H1ghsky’s Twitch and Twitter accounts were shut down in the wake of Tfue’s lawsuit, which claimed that H1ghsky had only been 11 years old when signed to the org – an allegation that Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR feels is directly related to the youngster’s social media bans.

KEEMSTAR posted a Tweet on June 12 accusing Tfue of being responsible for H1ghsky’s bans, which, unsurprisingly, saw ample mockery from Tfue’s fanbase.

Some users photoshopped KEEM’s face using various internet memes and clown face paint, which later made their way back to Tfue.

While Tfue himself made no direct reply to KEEMSTAR’s claims, he did retweet a few of these humorous photoshops – likely an indirect response to his allegations.

While H1ghsky has found himself booted off of Twitch, the gamer has since made use of YouTube for streaming purposes -with adult supervision, of course.

The youngster went on to admit that he had, in fact, lied about his age in order to get on with FaZe Clan, a fib that he claimed was made in order to “fulfill his dream.”

Tfue’s initial lawsuit likewise accused FaZe of pressuring him to drink while underage, as well as perform various stunts – claims that have garnered skepticism from fans and critics alike, as Tfue led FaZe in a documented jump off the reservoir near their home.

The streamer has since made the move to New Jersey, to live with Duos teammate Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lapore in wake of the drama.

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
