TRISTAN Tate’s model girlfriend has reportedly had her home raided by Romanian police as part of the ongoing probe into the Tate brothers alleged trafficking scheme.
OnlyFans star Abigail Tyson had her luxurious Bucharest villa searched today by agents from Romania’s organise crime busters DIICOT, according to police sources.
Their lawyers deny all charges against them – and claim that Andrew’s highly misogynistic online persona was just a “character”.
And now Tyson appears to have been drawn into the investigation, but at this stage she is not accused of any wrongdoing by police.
Romanian police sources told The Sun Online that Tyson is currently not believed to be in the country but they wish to speak to her for an interview.
Cops made a number of searches today across Romanian as they continue to investigate the Tates.
Seven properties in Bucharest and its surrounding areas were raided as part of the investigation, said DIICOT.
And one of those is understood to be Tyson’s.
Both men, from Luton in the UK, and two of their alleged accomplices remain in custody after being denied bail at a hearing on Tuesday.
British consulate officials reported visited the Tates today as they remain detained in Romania.
Police have until the under the month to hold the brothers after they were granted an additional 30 days to keep them in custody.
Tyson, 31, has been pictured with Tristan – with one selfie showing him beaming in the background as she poses.
Romanian police sources told The Sun Online that the OnlyFans and TikTok star, who is originally from the UK, lives in a villa in the neighbourhood Pipera.
Pipera is one of the most exclusive districts in the Romanian capital with properties regularly being priced around one million euros.
She appears to divide her time between Romania and Dubai.
And while her open social media profiles do not include explicit links to the Tates, but she is pictured with supercars known to belong to the brothers.
And one picture appears to show her at the pool at the Tate’s villa which as distinctive red tiles and the world “Tate” written on the garden wall.
She has been reported by Romanian media multiple times to be Tristan’s partner and to have a daughter with him – with the duo first being snapped by paparazzi back in 2019.
The Tate’s lawyer attempted to use the fact both brothers reportedly have children in Romania as an argument as to why they should be released from prison.
The Sun Online has also made multiple approaches to Tyson for comment via both social media and email but have not yet received a response as of publication.
Andrew Tate – supported by his brother – 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.
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.
