Andrew Tate: A Timeline Of Everything That’s Happened

In a 2022 exclusive from the Sunday Mirror, Tristan admitted the business was a “scam” that saw the women lie to customers in order to get money from them.

2016: Big Brother

Andrew appeared on series 17 of Big Brother, but was removed from the house on day 7 after The Sun published a video which showed him whipping an ex-girlfriend with a belt before slapping her in the face.

Channel 5 shared a statement that read: “Channel 5 and the producers reached the view that Andrew’s position as a housemate had become untenable after a video was brought to our attention by The Sun. ”

Andrew later maintained that the video showed a consensual act. Speaking to The Sun himself, he said: “This tape is a kinky sex video and we’re acting out a role play. A longer version of the video shows us laughing and I’m hitting myself saying ‘it doesn’t hurt’. ”

The woman involved also stated that the act was consensual.

2017: Andrew Tate moves to Romania

Andrew and his brother Tristan relocate to Romania, where they live in large compound. The Bucharest house is a converted warehouse with armed guards – which was one of the reasons, he told The Times, why he wanted to leave the UK, where it wouldn’t be allowed.

In another online video which has been deleted, Andrew is also said to have hinted that the move to Romania was due to more relaxed sexual assault laws. “I’m not a rapist, but I like the idea of just being able to do what I want. I like being free,” he reportedly said.

At this time, Andrew was becoming more controversial on social media – when the Harvey Weinstein scandal first broke, he made some worrying victim-blaming comments on Twitter.

“If you put yourself in a position to be raped, you must bare some responsibility,” he wrote. He was banned from Twitter for his comments.

2022: TikTok era

Andrew Tate became prominent once again in 2022, when his provocative and controversial views began circulating on TikTok.

In starting another business, called Hustlers University, he encouraged fans to take his online course – which was billed as a masterclass in cryptocurrency, e-commerce and stock trading, for a monthly fee. The website featured numerous videos of supercars and yachts filled with women, and also called for users to share Andrew’s content online in order to recruit more members and earn a commission. It’s said that they were actively encouraged to share controversial videos that would start “war” online. Critics declared it a pyramid scheme.

This led to thousands of videos of Andrew’s worrying statements being shared across social media, particularly TikTok. Examples of the content included videos of him saying women are a man’s property and talking about hitting and choking women. Hustlers University was shut down in August 2022. Andrew was also banned from TikTok, Instagram and Facebook.

He told the Observer that the videos showed him playing a “character”, and had been taken out of context. “It is very unfortunate that old videos of me, where I was playing a comedic character, have been taken out of context and amplified to the point where people believe absolutely false narratives about me,” he said. “I am genuinely innocent. I truly believe God will prevail. ”
