Former kickboxing champion Andrew Tate, currently under house arrest in Bucharest, is declining medical attention after his face swelled up and his skin became “on fire.” Concerns arise that Tate may have been poisoned, as he experiences an unusual illness.
Under House Arrest and Health Concerns
Andrew Tate, a former world kickboxing champion, is currently living under house arrest in his luxurious Bucharest residence following his release from detention last month.
Alongside his younger brother Tristan Tate, a former European champion, Andrew is facing an investigation into alleged human trafficking and involvement in an organized crime group.
Despite their limited freedom and the ongoing legal proceedings, the Tate brothers have remained active on social media platforms, providing updates on their situation.
Unusual Symptoms and Social Media Disclosure
On Thursday, Andrew Tate’s Twitter account, seemingly updated by a third party, posted alarming messages and videos showcasing the severity of his condition.
Andrew Tate expressed concern about his swollen face, describing his skin as “on fire” and experiencing difficulty breathing.
He suspected a severe reaction or potential poisoning, emphasizing that he had only consumed coffee and water earlier in the day. One of the tweets mentioned his eyes almost being shut and gathering “chi,” a reference to energy flow in Chinese philosophy.
Refusal of Medical Care and Suspicions
Despite his distressing symptoms, Tate’s Twitter account made it clear that he adamantly refused medical intervention out of fear that doctors might harm him through injections.
He denied having any allergies and declared his intention to manage the illness himself, suggesting the possibility of poisoning.
The tweets indicated that Tate believed the cause could be an insect bite or an intentional act involving his bottled water.
Instead of seeking medical attention, he focused on tea consumption and breathing exercises.
Andrew and Tristan Tate’s Controversial Rise to Social Media Stardom
Andrew, 36, and Tristan, 34, gained significant social media attention and notoriety last year, garnering a large following beyond their achievements in kickboxing.
Their controversial videos sparked concern among viewers, who labeled them misogynistic and dangerous.
Andrew faced a ban from social media platforms due to reports of his misogynistic views, including statements implying that women are responsible for sexual assault.
Despite the ban, he later regained his Twitter profile and amassed millions of followers when Elon Musk took over the company and reinstated controversial accounts.
As Andrew Tate refuses medical care and the mystery surrounding his illness deepens, his situation continues to attract attention and speculation.
Whether his symptoms are related to poisoning or have another underlying cause remains unknown, leaving observers curious about his well-being and the unfolding legal proceedings.
