In 2019, Tfue filed a lawsuit against his organization FaZe Clan because his contract was ‘ridiculous’. He alleged that FaZe Clan took 80% of his earnings and were also abusive towards him. This did not sit well with FaZe as they denied all allegations.

This sparked a huge controversy, where the community had different opinions about the same. Some said that Tfue’s contract was outrageous, and that FaZe is taking too much money from him. However, many others thought FaZe was the reason Tfue was so famous.
