Andrew Tate is one of the most controversial influencers on the planet. Tate gained a lot of notoriety for his misogynistic views against women. However, Tate found himself in hot water after he and his brother, Tristan Tate, had been accused of human trafficking and rape. And now the ex-kickboxer is threatening to sue the alleged victim for 249 million pounds for defamation.
Tate and his brother were arrested in December and are currently detained in Romania. According to the woman’s attorneys, he and his brother sent her a cease and desist letter in December. To be clear, Tate has threatened to sue for $300,000,000 in U.S. currency. Furthermore, it is claimed that the two brothers threatened to include the victim’s family in the lawsuit.
A Romanian court found recently that Tate denied any involvement in trafficking while appearing to brainwash women who worked for him. The brothers also refuted all allegations and took legal action against two women in Romania in April. Although this happened prior to Tate’s arrest, authorities think he attempted to frighten witnesses and prevent any revelations.

The cease and desist letter read, “In April 2022, you falsely stated to a third party that our Client [Andrew Tate] human trafficked you, abused you and held you against your will.”
“You have repeated false and defamatory statements to the police, the media, and another United States citizen about the Tate brothers.”
However, attorney Benjamin Bull asserted that his client is a crucial witness working against Tate in this case. As a result, he thinks that this letter represents an outrageous effort to silence witnesses.
“They want these young ladies to climb into a hole and hide, never come forward [or] describe what they saw and what happened to them. It’s clearly an effort to intimidate.”
Tate’s legal team confirmed the letter’s existence while denying any sort of intimidation. In other news, authorities seized a large portion of Tate’s assets after raids on his properties in Romania. Despite the anonymity of the six alleged victims in the case who will testify, they faced intense hatred and even death threats online after their identities were made public.
