Andrew Tate texted rape accuser ‘I love raping you’: Vice

  • Andrew Tate sent a sexual assault accuser a series of rape texts, according to Vice News.
  • They were part of the evidence collected by British police during the investigation into Tate between 2015 and 2019.
  • Ultimately, the Crown Protection Service did not prosecute the rape charges against Tate in 2019.

A series of posts were published by Vice World News on Wednesday that appear to show misogynistic influencer and ex-kickboxer Andrew Tate bragging about raping a woman.

The text messages and voicemails published by the outlet come a day after Tate failed to secure his release from a Romanian prison amid a sex trafficking investigation into him and his brother.

According to reports from Vice, Tate sent a woman who accused him of rape in 2013 threatening messages after the incident, including ones where he said he “enjoyed it.”

“I love raping you,” Tate said in one of the texts shared with Vice. “Monsters are monsters. When you’re under my control, I do what I want.”

A Hertfordshire Police spokesperson confirmed to Insider that Tate was arrested on December 17, 2015 for the allegation.

Tate had been arrested earlier that same year over allegations by two other women, who also spoke to Vice.

One accused him of rape and the other of violent assault, saying he strangled her. He was arrested for the allegations on July 18, 2015, police confirmed to Insider.

The UK Crown Prosecution Service did not press charges in any of the cases. The third accuser shared texts she said Tate sent her after he raped her. She gave those messages to the police, she said. Insider could not independently verify these.

The woman, who used the alias Amelia, told Vice that she and Tate had known each other since 2009 and started dating in 2013. The first night she visited Tate’s apartment, she told the publication that a light switch flipped after she told him she didn’t want to have sex that night.

“I stood up, looked at him, and said, ‘What’s wrong?’ the woman told Vice. “This guy literally lay there and said, “I’m just wondering if I should rape you or not.”

She told this outlet that Tate strangled and raped her after that moment, calling her her property and asking “whose do you belong to?”

In some of her videos, Tate made similar comments, calling women the property of men, and advocated violence against women in the context of infidelity.

Six months later the woman had filed a police report and in 2015 she was contacted by Hertfordshire Police as they searched for evidence about Tate. At that point, she returned her phone which included texts with Tate after the incident, per Vice.

The vocal notes provided by Tate’s wife also hit a macabre tenor.

“Am I a bad person…because the more you didn’t like him the more I liked him,” Tate can be heard saying in one of the voice notes, per Vice, adding that he wanted to “pin you down. and make you do things you don’t like.”

The posts painted a grim picture of the evening Amelia described to Vice.

“You didn’t like that I think I can do whatever I want with you,” Tate said in a voice note provided to the outlet. “That’s how it is. I’m the smartest person on this fucking planet.”

She told Vice that after Tate sent her a video of him smashing a baseball bat in the shin, she never saw him in person again. He also sent a voice note along with the video, according to Vice.

“I’m one of the most dangerous men on this planet,” Tate said in the video, per Vice. “Sometimes you forget exactly how lucky you were to fuck me.”

Ultimately, the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute Tate in 2019 and previously told Insider that it did not prosecute Tate because it saw “no realistic prospect of a conviction”.

The spokesperson told Insider on Thursday that his statement has not changed in light of the latest reports.

Tate’s attorney did not immediately return Insider’s request for comment.

Andrew Tate monetized his views through his “Hustler University” paid video subscription program, where he amassed tens of millions of dollars and a legion of largely male followers, according to Buzzfeed News.

Tate, his brother Tristan and two Romanian women were arrested in December on charges related to a Romanian investigation into human trafficking and the rape of the four. They are accused of exploiting women in the country to produce pornography and also face a separate rape charge.

After losing an appeal on Tuesday, the four defendants will remain in custody until at least the end of January.
