The New York Post reported:
Controversial influencer Andrew Tate, who is being held with his brother in Romania, has threatened legal action against at least one woman who accused him of rape and human trafficking.
A US law firm representing Tate and his brother Tristan sent a “cease and desist” letter to the unnamed woman’s American lawyer in December, the BBC reported Saturday.
The letter included a threat to sue the woman and her family for $300 million if she didn’t take back her accusations.
“In April 2022,” the letter reads, “you falsely stated to a third party that our client human trafficked you, abused you and held you against your will […] You have repeated false and defamatory statements to the police, the media, and another United States citizen about the Tate brothers.”
The brothers are currently in preventative custody in Romania as police investigate the allegations of trafficking and rape. Both deny the claims.
