Andrew Tate arrested on human trafficking charges

Andrew Tate, a controversial former kickboxer and social media star, was detained on charges of organizing a criminal gang, rape, and people trafficking.

Tate, who gained notoriety this year for his racist and misogynistic beliefs, was recorded on Thursday being brought from his opulent property by police during a raid. Along with two other suspects, his younger brother Tristan, 34, was also detained, and the four were all kept for a whole day in Bucharest.

The British man, who was raised in Luton but was born in Washington, DC, is being investigated by the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT). According to reports in Romania, he and his brother are being interrogated on suspicion of being part of an organized crime group that used women in adult videos.

Tate told the on-site cameras that “the Matrix has attacked me” as he was being escorted away by cops. He famously refers to the political, media, and major tech businesses as “the Matrix,” after the well-known science fiction movie from 1999.

When authorities allegedly discovered two females who claimed they were being detained against their will, the siblings were also reportedly questioned in April. The brothers were freed while the inquiry was ongoing, but on Thursday they were arrested once more in connection with a probe into rape, human trafficking, and the formation of an organized crime ring.

The Tate brothers and two other individuals, according to Romanian authorities, “appear to have constructed an organized crime gang to recruit, house, and exploit women by compelling them to produce pornographic content, from which they would have profited by significant amounts of money.”

Tristan and Andrew Tate have the highest respect for the Romanian authorities and will always support and assist in any way they can, according to a spokeswoman for Tate who told the media: “We cannot give any specifics at this time about purported rumours that they have been imprisoned.”

Before he was banned from social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter, as well as YouTube, Tate was the most searched-for guy online earlier this year. When Elon Musk finished taking control of the tech giant, Tate’s Twitter account was reinstated, and he started tweeting again almost away.

He got into a spat this week with environmentalist Greta Thunberg, boasting about his collection of supercars and requesting Thunberg’s email address so he could “provide a detailed list of my car collection and their corresponding tremendous emissions.” Thunberg hit back in a tweet which is now among the most-liked in history, saying: “Yes, please do enlighten me. Email me at”

Tate, a former kickboxing world champion, has been mentioned in connection with boxing matches against the YouTube stars Jake, Logan, and KSI. Additionally, he made a brief appearance on Celebrity Big Brother before being expelled after a video of him reportedly hitting a lady surfaced. Later, the lady stated that her connection with Tate was mutually beneficial.

Before making a brief move to Dubai earlier this year, Andrew and Tristan Tate were almost inseparable and had lived in Romania together for years. They were seen in the Middle East watching Andrew compete in Floyd Mayweather’s most recent exhibition fight against YouTube sensation Deji.
