ANDREW Tate and his brother allegedly planned to get the women to tell prosecutors they loved them and were not victims in a bid to get them released from custody.
The pair were kept behind bars Romania for nearly two months as part of an investigation into allegations of human trafficking and rape.
They are accused of recruiting women on social media platforms and persuading them to travel to their £600,000 villa on the outskirts of the country’s capital.
The brothers allegedly falsely claimed to be in love with the young women before making them perform sexual acts on webcams.
The women were forced to film porn videos at the compound and were kept under 24/7 house arrest, according to Romanian investigators.
Tate and his brother Tristan were arrested on December 29, and the ex-kickboxer has repeatedly teased being held in a cell.
It has been claimed that the couple wanted to convince many women to visit the hellish prison they are locked up in and protest their innocence.
The brothers wanted the women to put on an act in front of the officials to show that they were not victims and that the couple had been wronged.
Court of Appeal judges learned of the alleged plot through wiretapping and used it as a reason to extend their detention by at least another 30 days this week.
According to Digi24, a judge cited intercepts from the file saying: “Let’s pretend we’re hurt, let’s tell the judicial authorities we love the boys and they’ve misled us and we don’t like this situation.
“If we wear sunglasses, maybe we can shed a couple of tears.”
Magistrates also reportedly blocked their latest bid for freedom believing they would have fled to Dubai.
It comes after Tate’s spokesman denied reports in Romania that his brother was recently rushed to hospital amid hellish conditions in their prison cell.
Tate has repeatedly whined about life hidden in a cell
In an email to subscribers, he complained about the “freezing cold” while he was “locked in a box.”
And in another, Tate launched a thinly veiled attack on his supporters from his prison cell, saying he needs “better people”.
He called the prison an “animal house” as he told how inmates fight with guards.
Tate also revealed his prison workout routine, claiming he did 500 squats and 500 press-ups a day.
The Tate brothers maintain their innocence on all charges and claim their detention is part of a conspiracy to silence them.
Andrew has threatened to sue a woman who has accused him of a £249million trafficking scheme to “close” the case against him.
One-time Big Brother contestant Tate spent years creating one crooked empire promoting toxic worldviews that have infected legions of followers through TikTok.
Its influence has had an alarming spread among teenagers, with one UK MP saying it is “brainwashing” children.
