Andrew Tate to remain behind bars for an extra month as Romanian police extend detention

Police are building a case against the Tates.

Andrew Tate and his brother are to stay in custody until 27 February after a Romanian court extended their detention by police.

The brothers are being held on suspicion of human trafficking, sexual assault and rape, which they deny.

A judge has ruled that they will be kept in prison for a further 30 days as police build their case.

The reasons for the extension will be given in a written statement at a later time.

Authorities claim the pair have been part of an organised crime group which exploited women by forcing them to make pornographic content.

No charges have been brought against the two as of yet.

Tate, his brother Tristan, and two women were arrested on 29 December.

Earlier this month, a court rejected Tate and Tristan's appeal against their detention.

Tate then lost a second appeal against Romanian prosecutors, this time against the seizure of a fleet of his luxury cars and other assets.

A former kickboxer, Tate rose to fame in 2016 when he was removed from the British TV show Big Brother over a video that appeared to show him attacking a woman.

The 35-year-old has gained notoriety because of his inflammatory and misogynistic views on women.
