Former professional kickboxer Andrew Tate has been arrested in Romanian along with his brother Tristan and two Romanian suspects as part of a human trafficking and rape investigation.
All four have reportedly been held for 24 hours in Bucharest by the Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism and are being quizzed on suspicion of forming an organised crime group and using young women to produce pornographic movies.
A spokesperson for Tate reportedly said: "We cannot provide any details at the moment regarding alleged reports that they have been detained; however, Andrew and Tristan Tate have the utmost respect for the Romanian authorities and will always assist and help in any way they can."
Tristan now lives in Romania, saying: “It’s a very hostile environment, it’s not a touristy place, but if you build a life for yourself here, you’re free to live your f***ing life.”
Speaking on the Playing With Fire podcast, Tristan spoke about his relationship with his brother Andrew and also revealed they also have a sister that he doesn't get on with because of their opposing views.
Tristan said he is “lucky” to have his brother and said it’s a “blessing to have a guy like that on your team”.
He continued: “We agree on everything, our interests and the way we live are ever so slightly different, of course, there’s nothing we disagree on.” Tristan said he and his brother share houses, cars and a “bunch of stuff”.
But, he claimed his sister, who lives in America and works as a lawyer, is “full left wing”, “crazy” and a "hater".
