ANDREW Tate has been denied bail and will stay in his hellhole prison cell, a court has ruled.

The disgraced influencer, 36, is had his first bail hearing today since being detained over two months ago.

He and brother Tristan, 34, have been languishing in a Romanian jail since they were arrested amid a probe into human trafficking and rape allegations on December 29.

Tate has been going to and from the court as his legal team fight against the arrest warrant and the extensions to his detention.

Romanian cops can keep Tate under arrest for up to 180 days – but have to apply for 30 day extensions to his detention.

The maximum time he can be under arrest until is June 27.

But today for the first time his team were not challenging the arrest warrant – instead requesting bail.

It could have seen Tate potentially released under house arrest.

Judge Gabriela Risnoveanu, spokeswoman of the Bucharest Court, told The Sun Online: "The Bucharest Court rejected the request of Andrew Tate to replace the arrest measure with the judicial control on bail.

"The decision of the court can be appealed in maximum 48 hours."

Tristan is due to have his hearing tomorrow – and the brothers'"angel" Georgiana Naghel will have hers on March 16.

A spokesman for Andrew Tate said: "Unfortunately, the Romanian judicial system denied Andrew Tate’s request for bail today. We are disappointed in this outcome as we had high hopes to see Andrew reunited with his family.

"His legal team will be appealing this decision within the 48hr time frame."

It comes after a judge last month rejected Tate's latest appeal against his arrests and ordered him to spend another 30 days behind bars.

The brothers had already lost two previous appeals against prior 30-day extensions that have kept them behind bars while investigations continued.

Tate has repeatedly moaned about life behind bars on social media and through emails to his subscribers.

In an email, he complained about the "blistering cold" while being "locked in a box".

And in another, he launched a thinly veiled attack on his supporters from his jail cell, saying he needs “better people”.

They have been detained for more than 10 weeks amid allegations of human trafficking, organised crime and rape – with their "angels" Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu also under investigation.

They deny all allegations against them.

The brothers have had all their appeals for release denied as Romanian authorities consider them a flight risk.

They can be held for up to 180 days should further detention extensions be granted by the courts – meaning they can be detained until June 27.

Misogynist influencer Tate built up an image that appealed to teenage boys – creating an online empire that made him one of the most searched people on Google.

Masquerading as lifestyle advice, much of the content is considered highly sexist and is seen as promoting violence against women.
