He has over two million subscribers on YouTube.

Fortnite player Jarvis Kaye, better known as FaZe Jarvis, has received a lifetime ban for cheating in the game. The ban has forced him out of his 11.2m pounds (Dh52 million approx) mansion in Hollywood Hills.

The 17-year-old Fortnite player, who has over two million YouTube subscribers, uploaded a tearful apology last week and said he is set to return to the UK. Jarvis landed in trouble after he broadcast a video of him using 'aimbots' - software that is banned on Fortnite. The game's developer, Epic, immediately banned Jarvis from the game, reported Mirror.co.uk.

Aimbots are a hack that allow players to automatically target their opponents. The user can also see through walls, which gives the player an unfair advantage. Jarvis' ban from the game sparked a debate of whether cheating should result in a permanent ban.

FaZe Clan has called on Epic Games to come up with a 'fair compromise', rather than banning Jarvis entirely. Speaking to metro.co.uk , FaZe Clan said, "Jarvis is an entertainer and content creator who streams and makes YouTube videos for his fans. He's doesn't play professionally. He's a 17-year-old individual who made a poor decision while creating content and even warns several times during the video to never use the aimbot technology."

The gamer was living in a 10-bedroom Hollywood Hills mansion with his teammates from the 'FaZe Clan' that boasts a pool and cinema.
