Controversial internet celebrity Andrew Tate has his prison sentence extended as the rape and human trafficking investigation continues.
Controversial ICT Tac Content creator and internet celebrity Andrew Tate has his jail term extended for at least a month. The former kickboxer, along with his brother Tristan Tate, are being held in jail in Romania for another 30 days, extending the brothers’ detention until at least February 27.
For those unaware of the situation, Andrew Tate reportedly had his home raided by Romanian law enforcement agency DIICOT on December 29, 2022 on allegations of rape and human trafficking. In the days following his arrest, authorities appear to have taken possession of many of the self-proclaimed misogynist’s possessions, including several homes and a multimillion-dollar car collection.
DIICOT is specifically Romania’s counter-terrorism and organized crime agency, which suspects Andrew and Tristan Tate of human trafficking and rape, although formal charges have yet to be brought against the former star. from TikTok or his brother. Although the fact that the investigation is currently ongoing means further details are scarce, Andrew Tate has vehemently denied any of the charges. Through several tweets from Tate’s official account – although it’s unclear if it’s actually him or someone tweeting for him – he says anyone who thinks he’s a human trafficker is a “dumbass”.
The extended prison sentence comes just days after Andrew Tate lost his bid to end his detention. During an appeal, Tate’s legal team tried to convince the Romanian judge to grant bail to him and his brother, on the grounds that they both had young children. The team also cited Andrew’s illness, the content creator was reportedly temporarily transferred to a hospital after developing potentially cancerous lung nodules. The courts, however, denied them, requiring that he be detained for the first 30 days, with today’s development doubling his jail term.
Andrew Tate’s continued detention is surely disheartening to his fans and friends, although one friend in particular is planning to travel halfway around the world to see him. Upon learning that he was one of five people on his visitation list – and the only non-family member – famed streamer Adin Ross plans to visit Tate in jail. The controversial Twitch streamer posted a video detailing the discovery as well as his friendship with Andrew, praising him for his handling of the situation and letting Tate know he’s on his way.
Even if and when Andrew Tate finishes his legal battle, he has plenty more battles waiting for him on the outside. Last month, KSI said he would “love” to fight Andrew Tate, as well as a possible fight with Logan Paul. However, much will likely depend on the outcome of Tate’s ongoing investigation.
