EXCLUSIVE: Andrew Tate’s bail request is REJECTED by a Romanian judge who rules he must remain behind bars: Influencer says he is disappointed and ‘hoped to reunite with his family’
A Romanian judge today denied Andrew Tate bail and ruled that he must remain behind bars on sex trafficking charges.
Tate, 36, was arrested on December 29 along with his brother Tristan on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and forming an organized crime group to exploit women.
Last month, he lost his appeal against a judge’s February 21 decision to extend his arrest for a third time by 30 days.
And today, Tate appeared at a bond hearing that he hoped would result in his release from prison and placement under house arrest after nearly three months behind bars.
However, his request was rejected by the judge this afternoon. The influencer said he was “disappointed” by the decision as he had “high hopes” of reuniting with his family, before adding that his lawyers will appeal the decision.

A Tate spokesperson told MailOnline: “Unfortunately, the Romanian court system rejected Andrew Tate’s bail request today. We are disappointed with this result as we had high hopes of seeing Andrew reunited with his family.
Your legal team will appeal this decision within 48 hours.
