Prosecutors claim Andrew Tate raped two women kept as slaves for OnlyFans videos
| Last updated
Prosecutors have unveiled new details about two women fooled by self-described misogynist Andrew Tate, before alleging he kept them as slaves and raped them to make videos for adult sex site OnlyFans.
The woman, from Moldova, thought she had hit the jackpot when the controversial internet celebrity offered her a new life.
Prosecutors reveal Tate and the woman had even discussed marriage in return for absolute loyalty.
"You must understand that once you are mine, you will be mine forever," Tate said in freshly unveiled WhatsApp messages between him and the woman, as per Reuters.
He urged the woman to cross the border to join him in Romania.
Days later, Tate assured the woman that 'nothing bad will happen' to her.
He added on February 9, 2021: "But you have to be on my side."
Romanian officials now claim that once she had crossed the border, Tate allegedly raped the woman twice.
Prosecutors also claim he attempted to enlist her in a human-trafficking operation that aimed to create content for porn site OnlyFans, which allows people to sell explicit videos of themselves on the internet.
The allegations and text messages were revealed by a previously unpublished court document, dated December 30 and reviewed by Reuters.
The document sheds more light on the alleged criminal activities of Tate, 36, and his brother Tristain, 34.
The Tate brothers were arrested in Romania on December 29 after they gave away their location away during his public spat with Greta Thunberg.
Romanian media says the raids were carried out at the Tate property after prosecutors noted a pizza box in a video made by Tate as he tried to roast the climate activist.
The latest update comes after Tate's lawyer hit out against Romanian authorities who have decided to detain the ex Big Brother contestant.
She believes that them being held in prison without charge for more than 30 days is in contravention to international law, according to the BBC.
The former kickboxer and his brother Tristan have been held in prison since their December 29 arrests and are facing charges on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and forming an organised crime group.
Alongside the brothers, two female Romanian suspects were also detained.
A court in Romania recently ruled they will be held in custody for a further 30 days.
The Tate brothers have denied all charges levied against them.
