Andrew Tate allegedly kept six women under “house arrest like prisoners” around the clock.

The disgraced social media influencer was arrested in Romania as part of an investigation into human trafficking and rape and is being held in jail for 30 days.

The 36-year-old was arrested on December 29 along with his brother Tristan, 34, and their assistants Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu at their £600,000 mansion in the capital Bucharest.

Officials close to the police investigation say Tate asked his employees to watch his victims’ every movement and forced them to engage in online pornographic videos.

“The abuse was physical and emotional. They were not allowed to leave the house without security and were monitored day and night,” a Romanian justice source told the Daily Mail.

“They were essentially kept under house arrest around the clock like prisoners. They were deprived of their freedom and persecuted everywhere.’

The six victims are said to have participated in videos on adult content platform Only Fans and video-sharing app TikTok, with the two brothers reportedly pocketing all proceeds.

Prosecutors allege Tate solicited the women on social media platforms based on false promises to profess his love and intention to marry them.

Known as the “lover boy” tactic, this tactic is often used by criminals to recruit victims suffering from economic hardship by seducing them with gifts and promises of a better life abroad.

“We have information – based on what they have said on social media – that one of the girls was taking up to €50,000 (£44,350) a month,” the source said. “They didn’t get any money from what they earned.”

Among the women are said to be one American, one Moldovan and four Romanians.

The morning raid on the Bucharest mansion was carried out by officers from the city’s anti-organized crime unit and was part of a nine-month investigation that culminated in Tate’s arrest and a more than 12-hour search of the mansion.

Video captured from the raid shows officers obtaining guns, knives and money.

The investigation was launched when Romanian investigators began their investigation when the US embassy in Bucharest sounded the alarm after diplomats discovered an American woman was being held against her will in the city.

The 22-year-old American, who cannot be named for legal reasons, managed to recover her cell phone and called her boyfriend in the US, who alerted the embassy.

Tate also runs Hustler’s Academy, where 127,000, mostly men, pay him £39 a month for tips on getting rich and managing life.

The misogynistic social media influencer had previously said he and his brother had moved to Romania to be less scrutinized by the police.

The Tate brothers’ attorney, Eugen Vidineac, was unable to respond to the Mail’s request for comment.

His name recently came under the spotlight when he became involved in a Twitter spat with prominent environmental activist Greta Thunberg.

He was arrested 24 hours after he posted a video of himself eating pizza and trolling Miss Thunberg.

In a clip posted Wednesday night, the ex-kickboxer snubbed the teenage climate activist while smoking a cigar.

During the video, Tate is seen being presented with two boxes from the Jerry’s Pizza restaurant chain with clearly identifiable Romanian writing on them.

It has led to speculation that police may have used the post to confirm his whereabouts before his arrest.
