Influencer Andrew Tate donates $100 million to protect men from human trafficking and other crimes

Andrew Tate

Controversy-prone online persona Andrew Tate, detained in Romania on suspicion of rape and human trafficking, said on Sunday that he had modified his will while confined.

Prosecutors detained Mr. Tate, his brother, and two Romanian citizens in December of last year on charges of rape and human trafficking and for organizing a gang to prey on women. The former kickboxer opposed the accusations and others. Also, he has continued to do so on Twitter even after being imprisoned.

Mr. Tate tweeted on Sunday that he had amended his will while detained in Romania. He disclosed that he would give $100 million from his net worth to establish a charity to defend males against “false charges.” It is still unknown if Andrew Tate sent the tweet or if somebody in control of his account sent it.

Authorities in Romania think Mr. Tate and other suspects kept several women against their will and pushed them to engage in coition while being filmed. Immediately after the former kickboxer boasted to climate activist Greta Thunberg about his collection of cars and their high emissions, the Tate brothers and the other two Romanian citizens were detained.

The renowned social media influencer’s 11 vehicles, including a $2.9 million Bugatti Chiron, and several buildings, including one where the brothers allegedly kept six young ladies, have already been seized by Romanian police.

According to a report from last month, Mr. Tate has been vocal about the “inhumane” conditions he is subjected to while held. Tate said that his prison cell “had no light” and the depressing surroundings included “cockroaches, lice, and bed bugs” in an email sent to his website’s subscribers.
