CHILLING footage has emerged of disgraced influencer Andrew Tate claiming that women who stay in his house are not allowed to leave.
Former kickboxer Tate, who appears in the glossy video from his since-suspend YouTube channel, was arrested in Romania last month as part of a probe into alleged human trafficking, rape, and organised crime.
In the clip, he brags about his supposed playboy lifestyle, as the camera pans to footage of him getting onto private jets, smoking cigars, and flanked by bikini-clad women.
He claims that he has women living at his house all the time, but that they are "stuck" there while he is off travelling around the world.
Tate then adds: "And of course, they don't go out, they're not allowed out."
He then insists that the women wouldn't be permitted to go out clubbing with their friends, and disparages any man who would "let his woman" go out without him.

"No," he goes on. "You stay in the house. You don't go nowhere. No restaurants, no clubs, nothing."
Tate was previously banned from YouTube as well as Facebook and Instagram for his misogynistic comments and hate speech.
Andrew and his brother Tristan have been under criminal investigation in Romania since April last year, before being arrested on December 29 on charges of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organised crime group.
Formerly a champion kickboxer, Tate was thrown off Big Brother in 2016 after a video emerged of him appearing to hit a woman with a belt.

He and the woman both later claimed that the video was consensual.
Tate then operated a webcam girl service in Romania that he openly described as a "scam".
He also gained an audience of millions of mostly teenage boys and young men online, preaching a hyper-aggressive form of alpha male lifestyle.
Tate would make sure he was filmed surrounded by money, beautiful women, and glamorous locations, all the while describing females in the crudest, most violent terms.
Clips of his hustler brand went viral on TikTok, as well as unhinged rants and dodgy business advice.

He claimed victims of sexual assault share responsibility for their attacks and stated that men prefer dating teenagers to women.
The US-born influencer who grew up in Luton had his Twitter account reinstated in November following Elon Musk's takeover of the social media platform.
Tate is now in a Romanian jail cell where he is expected to stay until the end of January ahead of his trial.
Police raided the Tate brothers' compound outside the Romanian capital Bucharest and arrested the pair alongside two Romanian women, one of whom is believed to be Andrew's girlfriend.
Footage of the raid reportedly shows guns and money around the property.
Tate is alleged to have lured women to the compound, often by grooming them into believing they were in a relationship with him.
One alleged victim was even promised marriage when she was lured into Tate's webcam porn racket.
Once there, they were reportedly threatened with violence and had their passports confiscated.
They were also alleged forced to film porn videos which were then sold online.
Women working at Andrew Tate's sex cam business also allegedly had his name tattooed on them.
Romanian authorities allege Tate duped women into being recruited for his webcam operation.
Police sources said some of the women working for the business were said to have "owned by Tate" tattooed on them, which was visible on camera, reports The Times.
A witness who knew the influencer claims Andrew Tate "bragged" about having sex with teen girls, and admitted to stealing his cam girls' passports so they couldn't escape.
According to a witness, Tristan also introduced Andrew to a very young-looking girl who he claimed to be in a sexual relationship with, gleefully boasting: "Guess how old she is… She’s 16 bro!"
Desperate men would talk to women on webcams for $4 a minute, with the Tates pocketing most of the money.

Tate once claimed that he moved from the UK to Romania because "rape laws are more lenient here".
It has also since emerged that Tate was arrested on suspicion of rape in the UK in 2015 a year before his appearance on Big Brother.
