Controversial social media influencer Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan have been arrested in Romania over allegations of sexual aggression.

The brothers were detained on Monday night on charges that date back to between 2012 and 2015.

They were handed a European arrest warrant by UK authorities – and an investigation is pending.

Andrew and Tristan deny all allegations against them. Their representatives said they were “fully committed to challenging these accusations with unwavering determination and resolve”.

The brothers are facing rape and human trafficking charges in Romania, where they live, and had previously been in jail and later under house arrest since they were detained in December 2022.

It comes after Tate won an appeal in August 2023 to be released from house arrest as he awaits trial on a date which has yet to be decided.

They pair were told they were able to travel anywhere within Romania but could not leave the country.

Tate, a former kickboxer and Big Brother contestant, gained millions of fans on social media after styling himself as the “king of toxic masculinity”.
