A report by Upcomer was published on May 28 which seems to confirm that FaZe Clan’s youngest Fortnite Battle Royale start lied about his age.
The young Fortnite star has been under fire the past week since Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s lawsuit was made public where Tfue alleged that H1ghSky1 was underage.
Upcomer published an article on May 28 where they claim that H1ghSky1 was 11 at the time of signing with FaZe Clan, and was pressured by the organization to lie about the young man’s age.
The outlet was able to find evidence that H1ghSky1’s mother made a few posts in Romanian which wished the young man a happy fifth birthday in 2012.
Tfue’s lawsuit against FaZe Clan claims that the esports organization is in violation of California Labor Code section 1700.36, which explicitly describes that “no talent agency shall accept any application for employment made by or on behalf of any minor.”
If H1ghSky1’s age is in fact below 13-years-old, then he could be facing more punishment from Epic Games since the minimum legal age to participate in Epic Games-sanctioned tournaments are 13.
The young FaZe Clan star has not qualified for the Fortnite World Cup at the end of July.
H1ghSky1 currently boasts a huge online platform as he has over 400,000 followers on Twitch and over 800,000 on YouTube.
According to YouTube and Twitch’s terms of service, participants of the services must be 13 years of age or older, so it is possible that his channels will be disabled.
FaZe Clan has not commented on the situation, but we will keep you up to date with any and all Fortnite Battle Royale news!
