Andrew Tate has posted a bizarre video and cryptic message while under house arrest following his release from jail.

The controversial 36-year-old masculinity influencer and his brother Tristan were originally taken into custody on December 29, 2022, by Romania's Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT). The brothers were arrested with two women in connection with the same case.

After being held for 30 days, the brothers had their time held in custody extended several times. Their appeals to be released had also been denied.

Despite the pair having been released from prison and placed on house arrest by Romanian officials, they are still under investigation over allegations of crimes relating to sexual assault, exploitation, organized crime, and human trafficking. Neither Tate or his brother has been formally charged with any crime as of this time and they are not allowed to exit their home unless granted special permission to leave.

Since his release, Tate made a statement about the situation, saying: "I have no resentment in my heart for the country of Romania, or for anybody else. I just believe in the truth. So I believe in God and I think that the fire of truth will eventually destroy all lies and anybody who lies in a long enough timeframe will feel the sting of regret.

"I truly believe that justice will be served in the end. There is 0 percent chance of me being found guilty of something I have not done. I maintain my absolute innocent innocence. I think most people understand this and I look forward to being home, so thank you so much," he added. "When I was in jail, I did 7,417 push ups."

The divisive internet personality - who has made many misogynistic statements, including that women should bear responsibility for being raped - has posted a bizarre clip of himself strolling around his home while smoking a cigar.

In the caption of the video, Tate wrote: "Since last year ive been in 24 hour lockdown. No yard time. Pacing a 3metre cell with zero electronics or outside contact. Absolute clarity of mind. Real thoughts. Real plans. Vivid pain. One hour home and I cant stand my phone. Some habits die hard. We must defeat Shaytan [sic]."

The former boxer also posted a tweet about how he was "surrounded by impeccable men" and how he was "facing the largest battles", writing: "In a jail cell for an unknown period of time. Facing the largest of battles. It was the perfect time for any traitors on my team to betray me. But my team remained solid. Flawless. I am the perfect judge of character. Surrounded by impeccable men Teams like mine cannot lose."

Tate has consistently denied the allegations against him and even argued that these claims have been conjured up to silence him.
