DIICOT – the Romanian organised crime investigation unit – included the messages in the dossier of allegations being prepared against the Tates.

Romanian media now reports text message transcripts reveal how the Tates would control and threaten the women they allegedly held captive.

His lawyers deny all charges against him – and claim that his highly misogynistic online persona was just a “character”.

Tate has spent years creating a warped empire promoting toxic worldview which has infected legions of fans through TikTok.

Masquerading as lifestyle advice, much of the content is actually highly sexist and promotes violence against women.

His influence has had a worrying spread amongst teenage boys, with one UK MP saying he is “brainwashing” children.

New transcripts reveal how Tate would try to force women to get his name tattooed on them – claiming that at least two already had done so.

Tate insisted the unnamed woman get the tattoo despite her protestations, saying that she should “submit” to him.

He also branded her “slave” and appears to have threatened her with a belt.

Tate told her she is “mine forever”.

It come as the Tate brothers failed to get a 30-day extension of their detention lifted as they appeared in court yesterday in Bucharest.

Chained together with handcuffs and appearing alongside their two alleged accomplices – Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu.

The brothers and the two women will be held until at least the end of January.

Tate and his brother are alleged to have used the “loverboy” method to recruit women for their webcam business.

It is claimed they would strike up relationships with the women before moving them to their compound and webcam studio in Romania.

And there DIICOT claims the women would be compelled to perform webcam shows through “physical violence and mental coercion”.

Tate initially gained fame after a short-lived appearance on Big Brother.

He was dumped from the reality show after alleged footage of him beating a woman emerged online.

Since then he has sparked revulsion and outrage with a wave of warped content online.

Labour MP Alex Davies-Jones called on the UK Government to take action on the spread of Tate’s content – with teachers already revealing a worrying spread in schools.

“Schools across the UK are in crisis as the effect of online influencer Andrew Tate’s vile misogyny infiltrates our classrooms and society,” said Ms Davies Jones MP.

“Teachers are now having to develop their own resources to re-educate boys who are being brainwashed online by his deeply toxic messaging.”

And experts from The RAP Project, which runs workshops about rape, consent and sexual assault, have increasingly had be called in to tackle the spread of Tate’s influence.

Meanwhile, the NSPCC has called on tech companies to do more to tackle hate content like Tate’s online.

Rani Govender, the leading charity’s child safety online policy officer, said: “This sexist content is shaping boys’ attitudes and behaviour, causing harm to girls in and out of school and online.”

Washington DC-born Tate was banned from Twitter in 2017 for violating its terms of service with his controversial comments.

In August, Tate was banned from a range of other social media sites – only to then be reinstated on Twitter after the company was taken over by Elon Musk.

“Andrew and Tristan vehemently deny all accusations made against them,” a spokesman for the Tates told The Sun Online.
