Alissa Violet – an influencer, former member of FaZe Clan, and ex-girlfriend of org founder FaZe Banks – says she’s been defrauded out of her rightful shares of the company, and is now pursuing legal action.
According to Violet, she had a verbal agreement to give up her stock in Hubrick Limited (presumably after Hubrick and FaZe’s partnership went up in flames thanks to lawsuits of their own), and would receive FaZe Clan stock instead… But she claims to have never received the shares that were promised.
The Washington Post reported a statement from Violet’s attorney, saying the following:
Faze Clan is being sued because it specifically promised to compensate Alissa when it asked her to relinquish her Hubrick stock and asked her to dismiss her claims against Hubrick and others. If Faze Clan simply abided by its promise to compensate her, Alissa would not have had to sue Faze Clan.
The only response I’ve seen thus far from FaZe on the matter is from CEO Lee Trink, who wrote that “Stories get created out of any disagreement or dispute, big or small. … On this particular matter we’re in close communication and confident it’ll be resolved amicably.”
Sounds like an out-of-court settlement to me. We’ll see what happens in the coming weeks and keep you posted as usual.
