Andrew Tate Professional Career
Tate’s professional career started as a boxer in 2005 when he started working in the TV advertising industry to support himself. By the end of 2008, he was designated by the International Sport Kickboxing Association (ISKA) as the seventh-best light heavyweight kickboxer in Britain. Tate won his first championship by winning the British ISKA Full Contact Cruiserweight Championship in 2009. He won his first ISKA world title in 2011 in a knockout match. Andrew’s second world title came in a 12-round match in 2013.
In 2016, Tate gained international fame after appearing on the British reality show “Big Brother”. While on the show Tate made derogatory comments on Twitter that were homophobic and racist. He was removed from the show when a video of him hitting a woman with a belt surfaced. However, later the women claimed to be Tate’s friend and said that whatever was happening in the video was consensual.
Andrew Tate has been quite popular on social media but not in a positive way. He first received attention for his tweets describing his view on sexual harassment amid the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse cases. Tate mentioned in his tweet that sexual assault victims share responsibility for their assaults and also stated that women belong in the home. He also claimed that men prefer dating 18-year-old and 19-year-old girls as they are likely to have had sex with fewer men.
His negative and derogatory comments became quite popular among British teenage boys, raising concerns among parents and teachers. Many schoolteachers expressed their worries that Tate was influencing boys to exhibit misogynistic and aggressive behavior.
Tate owns a website that offers training courses on how to collect wealth and on male-female interactions. Along with his brother Tristan, Andrew also started a webcam business employing models to sell fake sob stories to male callers, through which he claims to have earned millions. Tate also operated a website called Hustler’s University where members paid a $49.99 monthly membership fee for instructions on how to make money outside traditional employment, such as e-commerce, cryptocurrency, and copywriting. The platform ceased operations in 2022.
In October 2022, Tate launched a re-branded version of Hustler’s University called “The Real World”. Apart from this, Tate also operates a private network called “The War Room” which in his words is a global network working to free the modern man from socially induced incarceration.
Allegations & Criminal Investigation
In 2015, Tate was arrested on suspicion of rape and sexual assault in the UK after two women made accusations against him. However, due to the improper handling of the case by the prosecutors, no charges were filed against him. Again in 2022, a man called the US embassy to report that his former girlfriend, an American citizen, was being held captive in Tate’s brothers’ home in Romania. When police raided the home, four women were found, out of which two claimed that they were held captive against their will. Some interrogations were done but ultimately the brothers were released.
The same year in December, the Tate brothers were arrested with two other women suspected of human trafficking and forming an organized crime group. An initial 24-hour pre-trial detention was given to the brothers which was later extended to 30 days. The brothers appealed for an extension against the detention which was rejected. To safeguard the investigation and prevent the brothers from leaving the country, their detention was further increased.
In February 2023, a Romanian court once again extended their period of detention, and the Tate brothers were denied bail for a third time. In March of the same year, the Bucharest Court of Appeal ended the Tate brothers’ pre-trial detention and placed them into house arrest, effective until April 29.
