Influencer Andrew Tate Detained in Romania

Tate and his brother were detained by authorities on human trafficking charges.

This week, controversial influencer Andrew Tate, along with his brother Tristan Tate, was detained and removed from his luxury villa in Bucharest, Romania. Tate and his brother were suspects in an ongoing rape and human trafficking investigation, and are currently pending admittance to a detention center. Two other suspects are currently in police custody.

“The four suspects… appear to have created an organized crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content meant to be seen on specialized websites for a cost,” a representative of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism told the BBC.

A spokesperson for the brothers could not provide concrete details about their current status when asked by The Daily Mirror, but said that the brothers “have the utmost respect for the Romanian authorities and will always assist and help in any way they can.”

Rumors have been circulating that Tate may have been the one to reveal his presence in Romania, making him vulnerable to a raid. Earlier this week, Tate started an argument on Twitter with prominent environmental activist Greta Thunberg, sending her pictures of his car collection and dismissing concerns of emissions. Thunberg dismissed him with a scathing comeback, which swiftly began trending. In an effort to preserve his image, Tate posted a video of himself eating pizza and clapping back against Thunberg. Allegedly, the pizza box he was eating from was from a chain that only operates in Romania, which is how authorities were able to pinpoint him. This rumor remains unconfirmed as of writing.
