Romanian authorities investigating claims of rape and human trafficking against controversial influencer Andrew Tate have seized £3.5million worth of assets from his home in Bucharest.

A total of 29 assets including luxury vehicles, watches and cash were taken by police.

The vehicles included a blue and black Rolls-Royce Wraith, which value was estimated at £310,000, and a McLaren 765LT worth up to £410,000.

The officers were also seen taking a Mercedes Benz and a BMW.

Tate was arrested on suspicion of human trafficking and rape at the end of last year and remains in custody in Romania.

His brother Tristan and two Romanian female suspects were also detained on charges forming a criminal gang to exploit six women sexually.

Footage circulated widely on social media showing Tate and his sibling being led away from a luxury villa on December 29.

Over the weekend Tate denied any wrongdoing in a post on Twitter, which said: “Anyone who believes I’m a human trafficker is a moron.”

Romania’s anti-organised crime agency, Diicot has previously said it would seize assets from Tate in order to stop him hiding them later.

The goods will also help fund the investigation and could be supplying compensation to his alleged victims.

Tate, a former professional kickboxer, has previously been banned from social network sites including YouTube, Facebook and Instagram for his “misogynist” message.

His Twitter account was recently restored last year which saw him use the platform to take a swing at Swedish climate campaigner Greta Thunberg by sharing an image of himself filling up his Bugatti with petrol and boasting about his “enormous emissions” from their engines.

The controversial online influencer has since used his account to complain about the Romanian justice system, which he has likened to the enslavement of the human race in the Matrix films.
