Douglas ‘FaZe Censor’ Martin is someone you might be familiar with. He’s the gamer who dumped the ‘World’s Hottest Weathergirl’ so he could practice for a Call of Duty championship and the results are in.
As it turns out, practicing ’24 hours a day’ just didn’t cut it in the end.
His ex, Yanet Garcia, has over seven million Instagram followers and was in a long-distance relationship with Martin, until he called it a day to focus on his gaming.
His fanbase, which comprises of 1.3 million followers on Instagram and 2.5 million subscribers on YouTube, couldn’t believe it.
In a YouTube video explaining why they broke up, he said: “She’s beautiful, she’s smart, she was an awesome girlfriend…it’s just, I gotta do what feels right for me. … I’m playing Call of Duty full-time now and she wanted to take her job opportunity…
“I want to win a ring, I want to win a world championship, what I want in my life at this very moment is to compete in Call of Duty because I love it so much. I’m going to do whatever it takes to be a champion. There’s only 24 hours in a day and I just didn’t have enough time to do what I needed to do.”
During an appearance on the TV show ‘Hoy’ (Today), Garcia said: “So, I am relaxed, at peace, I keep what was good about the relationship in my heart. We were in a long distance relationship, it was very difficult. I actually do not judge him, on the contrary I wish him all the success, I hope that he wins that championship and it gives him all that he wants. We were a couple working in social media, and he had commitments with his followers while I have my job and projects.”
Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be and Martin lost. Damn.
This is what I’ve sacrificed everything for. I waited so long for this moment right now. Let’s go.
