[LCS] TSM 2nd-tier mid-liner released due to ‘private life controversy’
While TSM, a prestigious team in North America, has recently been suffering from the collapse of sponsor FTX and the worst performance, an unsavory incident has occurred in the team. “Triple” Stephen Lee, who joined the second-tier mid-liner, was released for drug abuse and murder threats against his ex-girlfriend.
On the 2nd, TSM announced that it would immediately terminate its contract with the North American Challengers League (second division) mid-liner “Triple.” The reason why TSM broke up with “Triple” was revealed by her ex-girlfriend, “Long.” Long, who is an analyst at Supernova, reported the misdeeds of “Triple” through his SNS.
Triple is an Australian midliner. “Triple,” which also participated in the “LOL World Championship (LOL World Cup)” as a member of Mammoth, a strong team of LCO, joined the Flyquest Academy ahead of the 2020 season and began its North American league challenge. After that, he moved to TSM in 2023 through CLG.
According to “Long,” “Triple” continued to abuse drugs and poured out remarks that “I want to hit people at 200 miles per hour (321 kilometers per hour).” He also announced that he had cheated on him. In response, “Triple” admitted, “I am truly sorry for my actions at that time.” 안전놀이터
TSM has been having a hard time recently, overshadowing prestigious teams until the release of the second-tier mid-liner. Due to the bankruptcy of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX, TSM had to cancel a sponsorship contract worth 210 million dollars (about 266 billion won) for 10 years last year. In the 2023 season, Roster is being evaluated as “only matching the search.”
