FORMER kickboxing champion turned entrepreneur, Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan, are facing their toughest fight to date.
The pair were arrested on Thursday in a police raid amid an investigation into alleged human trafficking, rape and forming an organised crime group.
When will Andrew and Tristan Tate be released from prison?
On Friday evening a judge at Bucharest Court House rejected Tate's lawyer's appeal to have him released from jail while investigations continued.
The judge decided to detain both Tate brothers and their personal assistants Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu.
Tate's representative Avocat Vidineac Eugen Constatin stated outside the courthouse that they have appealed the decision to not grant bail to the influencer while the investigation continues.
Mr Constatin told reporters: "The court has issued an arrest warrant for 30 days. We've appealed it, the court will decide after the appeal what the final solution is."

Why were Andrew and Tristan Tate arrested?
The four suspects were initially held on suspicion of rape, human trafficking, and organized crime offences for 24 hours following raids on his villa and other properties.
It is important to point out that the group have not been formally charged yet, police in Bucharest are insisting that their investigation is ongoing and that all four remain suspects.
They are alleged to have recruited and exploited women by coercing them into "forced labour… and pornographic acts with a view to producing and disseminating such material" online to "obtain substantial financial benefits".
Tate, who previously claimed to be a "trillionaire" was in fact living in a property he did not own in surroundings much different to the image he portrays online.

What will happen when Andrew and Tristan Tate are released?
The big question mark at the moment remains to be seen if the Bucharest court will uphold the detention of the four suspects for thirty days while investigations continue.
Should they stick to their original decision, it gives authorities a lot more time to investigate the case further.
The charges in question are extremely serious and would no doubt carry hefty sentences if proven.
Until any of the four are charged, it is very difficult to say what happens on their release and the terms they will have to adhere to.
