The ongoing dispute between superstar Fortnite streamer, Turner “Tfue” Tenney and esports organization FaZe Clan took an unexpected turn late last night when a copy of Tfue’s contract was leaked to The Blast (authenticity confirmed by ESPN).
The details of the contract do seem quite accurate to Tfue’s original complaint. His base salary is just US$2,000/month with half-yearly reviews that can result in either an increase or a decrease, of up to 25% “at [FaZe’s] sole discretion.”
Tfue is also required to give 20% of his tournament earnings (such as from the Fortnite World Cup) to FaZe Clan, as well as 50% of any in-game merchandise, 50% of any brand deals negotiated by Tfue, 80% of any deals negotiated by FaZe, 50% of touring and appearance fees, and 80% of any Tfue-themed merchandise that FaZe manufactures.
The contract was signed on April 27, 2018 for a six-month term, however, a clause states that after six months, it will automatically extend for another 36 months, locking Tfue in until October 2021.
