Ex-girlfriend accuses Andrew Tate of choking her out until she passed out

One of Andrew Tate’s ex-girlfriends claims that he ended up “slapping and strangling” her into unconsciousness during their romp.

Tate and his brother Tristan have been detained in a Romanian jail since December on accusations of involvement in organized crime and human trafficking. It is said that both of them will stay behind bars until at least February 27. Both brothers have denied the accusations.

Both men were initially held for 30 days and were scheduled to be released at the end of January but had their detentions extended. They both claim to have assets confiscated worth more than $3 million.

Last Monday as he was leaving court, Tate said: “Ask them for evidence and they will give you none, because it doesn’t exist. You’ll find out the truth of this case soon.”

Tate’s ex-girlfriend told BBC Radio 4’s File on 4 that Tate reportedly strangled her during relations to the point where she passed out.

She asserts that the pair first connected over Facebook. She then went to meet Tate at his house in Bucharest before she became his girlfriend.

She alleges Tate made her an offer to work for his webcam company and promised her that if she accepted, she would “make a fortune.”

Although Sophie declined the offer, she said Tate attempted to manipulate her by claiming: “If you love me, you would do it.” She acknowledged that over time, her decision to reject the position began to “chip away” at her, leading her to question if “maybe he’s right.”

Eventually, Tate’s ex-girlfriend had a change of heart and began working for Tate’s webcam company. There she would receive £800 for six hours of labor. However, she asserted that Tate would keep half of her pay.

She said that Tate began acting violently when they had sex and threatened to “fine” her if she left the house without his consent.

She said, “There was some disagreement. He held me up against the wall and he slapped me really hard and followed it with ‘you whore’. He totally lacks any kind of empathy. He is a narcissist, he’s like that 100 per cent. I don’t think he’s emotionally capable of feeling love, for anyone or anything, even his family, even his brother, there’s just nothing.”

She added that she doesn’t feel victimized by Tate since she made her choices of her own free will. “It’s very difficult because I don’t feel like a victim – all of the choices I made were of my [own] free will. He didn’t bundle me up into a bag, throw me in the back of a lorry and drive me there.”
