Andrew Tate says he's preparing for 'mortal combat' in bizarre prison tweet
| Last updated
Andrew Tate says he's preparing for 'mortal combat' in a bizarre series of tweets from his prison cell.
The controversial figure and his brother Tristan have been imprisoned since 29 December on the suspicion of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organised crime group.
Despite appeals to be kept under house arrest, Tate remains behind bars as as prosecutors prepare their case against him.
And at the start of this month, a court in Romania ruled that the brothers are to be held in custody for a further 30 days.
Although he's locked up, Tate's still managed to find a way to stay active on social media.
Yesterday evening (14 February), on Valentine's Day, no less, he sent out a series of tweets in which he rambled on about his attitude towards his imprisonment.
In one post, he said: "There are two possible futures of the universe... One, they kill me. Two, I emerge as one of the most respected and influential men on the planet galvanised by false persecution.
"I ask my enemies to make a choice. I will stay awake tonight prepared for mortal combat. Send your best."
The former Big Brother star later gave an insight into his mindset right now, writing: "I can communicate and write to my students inside The Real World.
"I can positively influence the world. I can still change lives. I am locked in a cell, for now. But it could be worse.
"I exist falsely imprisoned with a smile."
Expressing that he's happy his 'brother is alive' right now, Tate posed the questions: "Would you choose to be sad or to be set on fire? Stressed or to lose a limb?
"Genuine question. You have to ask yourself these questions because it’s very easy to frame yourself in a favourable position."
And last but definitely not least, Tate gave his tip on the 'one way to survive in jail': with 'self-control and discipline'.
His tweets have been met with an expected response, with one writing: "Bro is a grown man talking like he's in an anime."
It was alleged that Tate and his brother were part of a gang that tricked women into coming to live with him at his mansion in Bucharest.
They were then said to have been forced, using 'physical violence and mental coercion', into creating pornographic content.
Earlier this month, prosecutors unveiled new details about two women fooled by the self-described misogynist, alleging he kept them as slaves and raped them to make videos for adult sex site OnlyFans.
Tate has refuted all claims levied against him, previously tweeting that he has been imprisoned by 'the Matrix', whatever that means.
A court date is yet to be set as the investigation is ongoing.
