Controversial internet personality Andrew Tate has hired a new lawyer for his case. He and his brother Tristan currently remain in custody in Romania.
The Tate brothers have been in custody since December 2022 after being picked up in a police probe. The accusations against them include human trafficking, rape and conspiracy to form a criminal group. They were originally meant to be held in custody for 30 days, but Romania's judicial court extended their detainment until at least the end of February.
Whilst awaiting trial, 'Cobra' believes he has bolstered his defense by hiring Tina Glandian. The prominent attorney has worked alongside a host of celebrities, including boxing legend Mike Tyson, as well as musicians Michael Jackson and Chris Brown.
Following the news of her taking on the case, Tina Glandian gave an interview with Piers Morgan, during which she labeled Andrew Tate and his brother's detainment as an "injustice":
"They've had this investigation going on since April . It's now February. There are not even charges filed against them. This is a huge injustice the way we see it, they should not be detained at this point. We think it's now crossed the point where it's violating international human rights law... I think there's absolutely no evidence that's been presented. That's our position."

UFC light heavyweight champ Jamahal Hill responds to fans who have accused him of supporting Andrew Tate
Newly crowned UFC light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill believes it comes with the terratory after feeling compelled to respond to fans' criticisms.
'Sweet Dreams' is currently on cloud nine after winning the vacant 205-pound strap in a dominant performance against Glover Teixeira at UFC 283 last month. Following his success in the octagon, however, Hill has come under fire from some fans who have accused the champ of supporting controversial figure Andrew Tate.
Hill has regularly posted videos of 'Cobra' on his social media, often reacting to viral clips of the 36-year-old.
In an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda MMA, Jamahal Hill addressed those fans. He suggested that his critics have only spoken out now that he's become a champion:
"That's kind of like, a common occurrence.... They just say that you're a fan [of Andrew Tate] because you see a clip and somebody said something and I'm like, 'This makes a lot of sense.' Maybe it's a message that people can't hear. They just take things and go completely far however they want to with it."
"People understand what makes people react or triggers people. People don't actually look for facts. They just want to attach something that's triggering to your name to trigger people against you."
