Ex-girlfriend claims Andrew Tate was aggressive and coercive.

A British lady claims to have been in a relationship with notorious social media influencer Andrew Tate, who urged her to work for his webcam firm before becoming domineering and abusive.

“It’s difficult because I don’t feel like a victim; all of my decisions were made of my [own] free will. He didn’t stuff me in a bag, toss me in the back of a truck, and take me there “Sophie explains.

Tate reached her “totally out of the blue” on Facebook.

“He was sort of leading me into believing that he was someone I could trust and who honestly wanted to connect with me,” she says.

She describes their interactions as normal of individuals getting to know each other, with no red signals. After communicating with him online, she agreed to visit his house in Bucharest, Romania’s capital.

“I was at a point in my life where everything felt a little tedious and drab, and the thought of an adventure simply seemed appealing,” she says.

Sophie visited Tate in Romania on a regular basis as their relationship progressed. He told her he wanted her to be his girlfriend, but then asked her to work for him.

“‘You should do it, you’d earn a fortune, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to,’ he’d suggested a couple of times. ‘I make enough money,’ she adds “Sophie explains.
