Fortnite may be the center of controversy these days but its players also have some issues of their own. Case in point: Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney. The 22-year old Fortnite professional player shot to fame with his insane skill in the game. He is also currently the second most followed streamer on Twitch with more than 9 million followers. He is widely popular in the gaming industry and this is one of the reasons his fight against Faze Clan was in the news.
In 2019, Tfue filed a lawsuit against his own organization Faze Clan because the contract was ‘ridiculous’. He alleged that Faze Clan took 80% of his earnings and was abusive in some ways. This obviously did not sit well with Faze as they denied all allegations.
This sparked a huge controversy where the community was divided and had different opinions about the same. Some said that Tfue’s contract was outrageous and that Faze is taking too much money from him. While others thought that Faze was the reason Tfue was so famous in the first place.

When Tfue refused to back down, Faze served with him a countersuit. They alleged that Tfue earned more than 20 million dollars and hadn’t shared any of those earnings. They also accused him of trying to leave the organization and forming one of his own. A lot has gone down since then and now, out of nowhere, the whole saga is over.
The fight between Fortnite pro Tfue and Faze Clan is over
The lawyers from both sides have issued a joint statement to Hollywood Reporter where they said “FaZe Clan and Turner Tenney are pleased to announce that they have resolved their disputes and settled their litigations,”. “The parties wish one another the best of luck in future endeavors.”
The details regarding what exactly happened are not disclosed but this is quite bizarre. But, it is also still not clear that the ‘settlement’ involves Tfue’s contract being terminated. There could be many possibilities here but from the last statement, it seems the parties have parted ways for good. Tfue is now reportedly free to build his own brand and not bound by the contract. So what are the next steps for the 22-year-old? He will definitely have some news to share with us in the coming days. Stay tuned for further updates on the same.
