Influencer Andrew Tate Detained In Romania Over ‘Horrific’ Accusations Of Sexual Violence And Physical Abuse In The UK From 2012 To 2015


Update (March 12, 2024): Andrew Tate’s legal woes continue. The influencer and his brother, Tristan Tate, were detained in Romania for 24 hours on Monday (March 11).

During the arrest, British authorities gave them an arrest warrant from London’s Westminster Magistrates Court for alleged sexual aggression from 2012-2015, per his spokesperson, Mateea Petrescu. Police took the brothers to the Bucharest Court of Appeal on Tuesday (March 12), and the court is set to decide if the warrants will be executed. If so, they could be extradited.

The arrest follows four women’s allegations that the former boxer subjected them to sexual violence and physical abuse. They told police in the U.K., however, at the time the Crown Prosecution Service didn’t charge him. The accusers raised money via crowdfunding to pay for their legal expenses to sue him in civil court.

Their campaign says,

“We handed over our evidence about the horrific acts of violence we endured and waited for action. But four years later we were told the U.K. authorities would not prosecute him. It’s our one remaining route to hold him accountable.”

Their attorneys at McCue Jury & Partners said they had urged British police to get a warrant against the brothers after the alleged victims were told they could try to run to Romania. Matthew Jury, a managing partner at the firm, said in a statement,

“Today’s news is very welcome as it had been a significant concern to many that Tate would seek to avoid justice in Romania and abroad. We are grateful to the British authorities for taking our concerns seriously and issuing an arrest warrant. Tate is accused of serious criminal offenses against a large number of victims and he must be held accountable.”

Andrew Tate is still facing charges in Romania for an unrelated case. There, he was indicted for rape, human trafficking, forming a criminal gang to sexually exploit women in June. He has also denied those accusations.

Accusations against Tristan aren’t clear. Both he and Andrew denied the accusations via Petrescu, who said they,

“express profound disappointment that such serious allegations are being resurrected without substantial new evidence.”

Andrew Tate also shared a cryptic message on X (formerly Twitter) following the arrest.

Original Story (June 20, 2023): Controversial influencer/former professional kickboxer Andrew Tate has been charged with rape, human trafficking, and forming a criminal group to sexually exploit women in Romania.

Tate, who was arrested by Romanian anti-terrorism authorities last December, allegedly also engaged in human trafficking in the U.S. and the U.K.

Tate’s brother, Tristan Tate, was also reportedly charged alongside two other suspects. The brothers have been under house arrest since March.

On Tuesday (June 20), Romania’s anti-terrorism organization, the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), alleged that Andrew Tate and his co-defendants created a criminal group in 2021,

“in order to commit the crime of human trafficking on the territory of Romania, but also in other countries, such as the United States of America and Great Britain.”

According to reports, the crime group misled seven victims with,

“the intention to establish a marriage/cohabitation relationship and the existence of real feelings of love.” 

Instead, the victims were forced to perform pornographic acts, which were later shared through social media sites such as OnlyFans.

Andrew and his brother have denied all allegations.

Tate’s legal team said in a statement:

“While this news is undoubtedly predictable, we embrace the opportunity it presents to demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation. Our primary focus will be to establish the truth and ensure a fair and impartial examination of the evidence the legal team will submit.” 

The statement continued,

“The indictment now allows us to present a comprehensive body of evidence, diligently collected and prepared over time, which will undoubtedly substantiate the brothers’ claims of innocence.”

While the social media personality is screaming that he had no part in such immoral acts, an additional duo of women have since resurfaced and added that Tate (allegedly) physically and sexually abused them (too) in the United Kingdom, which is said to have taken place in 2015.

One of the young ladies recalled Tate becoming extremely aggressive with her and another female present at the time.

“[He said], ‘Which one of you hoes am I going to strangle today?’ I couldn’t believe that that was our life, you know? But it just seemed really, really normal for us, even though it wasn’t.”

She continued by stating that Tate often kept the girls “in line” by laying hands on them, and he’d threatened her when she confronted him about the harm she’d seen him inflict on someone else.

“I just wanted to get out of that situation. He said, ‘Oh, I don’t give a f*ck if you call the police, I’m going to beat the sh*t out of you.’”

Andrew Tate rose to fame as a contestant in the reality TV show Big Brother UK in 2016. He has eventually kicked off the show after a video surfaced in which he appeared to be hitting a woman with a belt. He is known for spewing misogynistic views on social media, which have gotten him removed from many social platforms.
