On Monday, a report VIA The Hollywood Reporter stated that Tfue had filed a lawsuit against Faze Clan alleging the organisation of keeping a significant amount of his income (80% of his total income in some cases) as a part of Gamer Agreement he had signed with Faze in April past year. "Unfortunately, this has become industry standard". FaZe would also be collecting 80 percent of his sponsorship revenue. FaZe Clan claims they have never taken this much from Tfue. The complaint also alleges that members of Faze Clan encouraged Tenney to drink and gamble while underage.
Tenney is taking Faze Clan to court over allegedly limiting his ability to pursue his profession and for multiple violations of California law. Tfue (whose real name is Turner Tenney) filed the complaint against the company, accusing them of violating California law and the Talent Agency Act, according to court documents, first published by The Hollywood Reporter.
Banks said in a video addressed to Tfue that if the player wanted to earn more money from his contract with FaZe, he could've contacted him and they would've figured something out. The lawsuit being filed claims that FaZe is in violation of the Talent Agency Act, which states that any company that helps promote or endorse an individual must be licensed under the labour commission and follow certain regulations.
The complaint paints 21-year-old Tenney as one of many young gamers who have fallen victim to this business model, in which esports organizations seek to "own" streamers by locking them into "grossly oppressive, onerous, and one-sided" agreements.
Tenney tried to terminate his contract with Faze Clan in September based on the organization's numerous breaches of contract, but Faze Clan disputes that the agreement was terminated and contends that Tenney still owes it contractual obligations, the complaint says.
"Not only does Faze Clan take advantage of these young artists, it jeopardizes their health, safety and welfare", Freedman writes. "I've been a faze fan since 2011", one person tweeted.

U.S. suspects Syria in new chemical attack and threatens reprisal
Kabana is a fortified and strategically positioned stronghold that has been frustrating regime advances in Idlib. May said her country condemns all use of chemical weapons.
The allegations of misconduct continue, painting a bleak picture of the environment and practices fostered by FaZe Clan. "During one video, Tenney suffered an injury to his arm while skateboarding which resulted in permanent disfigurement".
He specifically discusses the fact that the contract does not allow Tfue to sign deals outside of FaZe Clan.
At the time of writing this Tenny has not responded to any of responses from FaZe Clan, though we suspect he won't regardless.
Tenney has also removed the alcohol and gambling claims from his suit. Tenney's lawyer Bryan Freedman called Faze Clan's gamer contracts illegal, saying that Faze Clan used the contracts to prevent Tenney from exploring deals that were potentially far better for him than the ones Faze Clan was offering.
In the midst of an ongoing lawsuit between streamer Tfue and the organization he competes under, FaZe Clan, Tfue's approximate earnings were revealed today in a YouTube video by FaZe Clan's owner.
