Ninja Discusses ‘Sad’ Truth About Having Fame And Wealth

Ninja Discusses ‘Sad’ Truth About Having Fame And Wealth

As the gaming world reached new heights with the boom of Fortnite and its undeniable impact on the industry hit full force, fewer people benefited more than Twitch sensation Tyler "Ninja" Blevins.

The 29-year-old content creator rode the wave of Fortnite to its fullest, becoming the most-subscribed Twitch streamer ever (until last month where Ludwig Ahren surpassed his sum during a record-breaking subathon). Ninja's success seen him amass huge amounts of fame and fortune, previously admitting that he made $5million in one month through his Fortnite Creator Code alone. Combined with a deal with Mixer worth over $30million, a peak of 200,000 Twitch subscriptions priced a $5 a month, and sponsorship deals with the likes of Red Bull, GameFuel, and Adidas, Ninja's revenue soared.

However, he has now admitted that despite the fame and fortune, the grass isn't always as green as it may seem.

Ninja claims he Struggles to trust people now he's famous

in a recent AMA with fans on Twitch, Ninja admitted that he struggles to trust people in his life, with many trying to get close to him for a slice of the limelight and a share of his cash. 

Although he joked that he'd rather be crying in a Tesla, he admitted that "Money can’t buy happiness. Look, there are positives and negatives to everything in life. You guys don’t understand. If you have money, 90% of the time or more, you sacrifice a lot. Relationships, family, time, love, friendships.”

“You can’t trust anyone. Who are your real friends? Who is your real family? People come out of nowhere asking for money all the time. And if you say no, you’re a piece of s**t, you’re the worst, and they make you feel like a piece of s**t."

Despite his problems, Ninja was keen to get across that he recognises that he is in a great situation and that he is by no means looking for people to feel sorry for him. He said: "This is very important, and I have to say this. This is not a pity, woe is me, feel bad for me thing. I don’t want sympathy here. I’m just stating facts, okay? This is what happens and it sucks.”

“I understand the privilege that I have. I understand the situation I am in, I am blessed, I am grateful for everything that has happened and everything I have in my life right now. I am blessed.”

Ninja recently headed back to his roots and dived back on Fortnite, after revealing his competitive VALORANT days have come to an end.
