TFue was used to play for FaZe Clan but his membership was terminated after he filed a lawsuit against the clan in May, 2019, because they “pressured Tenney to live in one of its homes in Los Angeles, pressured him to underage drinking and illegally gambling. FaZe also continuously pressured and encouraged him to engage in dangerous stunts.”

Tenney also claimed, that “he only got 20% from any branded videos that are published on Twitch, YouTube or social media and half of his revenue from touring and appearances.” FaZe Clan lashed back at him on on Twitter, saying they didn’t take any money from his tournament winnings, Twitch and YouTube revenue and his social media. They also said that they “took $60,000 from his branded videos” and offered Tenney “an improved contract multiple times, with 100% of the money going to Tenney, but he rejected or ignored all of them.”

A week later, Tenney was banned from Twitch again, this time for 14 days, for unknown reasons.
