Andrew Tate is an infamous and polarizing figure, with supporters claiming he’s the icon of “positive masculinity” while critics denounce his sexist and misogynist views. Like him or not, he is frequently associated with an opulent lifestyle and lavish wealth. Claiming hundreds of millions in net worth, the “Top G” boasts enormous wealth and blames lacking competence for poverty. But how much is Andrew Tate’s net worth really?

Andrew Tate’s net worth claims

Andrew Tate has at times estimated his own net worth to be anywhere from $100 million to “billions”.

He did not even shy away from calling himself the world’s first trillionaire, before Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos, to the community of people, mostly young men, who look up to him and try to emulate his perceived financial and social success. Despite exaggerating claims, his actual net worth remains unknown to the public. However, recent events have provided a more realistic perspective on his wealth estimates.

The arrest and asset seizure shed light on Andrew Tate’s net worth

On 29 December 2022, Andrew Tate and his brother, who have been living in Romania since 2017, got arrested on charges of rape, human trafficking, and forming an organized crime group. During the arrest, the police seized the Tate brothers’ assets, including:

  • 15 luxury cars;
  • More than 10 homes and properties;
  • 14 watches;
  • Two precious metals ingots;
  • Piles of cash.

The estimated value of seized assets was nearly $4 million, with the assets to be transferred to the state and used to compensate the victims in case of conviction. However, on 8 January 2024, the Romanian court overturned the decision, with a new trial over the assets awaiting.

This seizure provided an unbiased look at the fortune of Andrew Tate and his brother, and the sum appears to be much more modest than the influencer has claimed. 

Among the seized assets, the Romanian police force also listed a significant sum in cryptocurrency, consisting of 21 Bitcoins (BTC) worth about £440,000 or $550,000 at the time and shares in four companies worth only £84,000 or $105,000.

If anything, the seizure of the assets proved that Andrew Tate’s net worth was far from billions of dollars. In fact, the precise figure based on the official Romanian police inquiry falls somewhere between $4 million and $12 million, and the majority of that worth comes from his cars. 

How does Andrew Tate make money? 

Andrew Tate was born in the U.S. but moved to England when his parents divorced. He started kickboxing and practicing other martial arts in 2005 while simultaneously working in TV advertising to support himself. Before he retired, he won several international kickboxing contests and retired with four world championship titles.

He attracted public attention in 2016 when he appeared in the British Big Brother reality show. At the same time, he came into the spotlight for prior racist and homophobic comments on social media. The producers subsequently removed him from the show due to an ongoing rape investigation, which closed in 2019 without charges. 

Tate used to claim his wealth from investing in cryptocurrency, operating a chain of casinos co-owned with his brother Tristan, and his various online courses and webcam business ventures, such as Hustler University. Before the charges, the former kickboxer nurtured an image of extravagant wealth, sharing pictures of sports cars like Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces, and notably a Bugatti, expensive homes, luxury cigars, private jets, and other items inaccessible to most people.

However, the arrest and subsequent events revealed that the social media influencer vastly exaggerated his wealth to build and promote his brand and deceive an enormous community of followers. Tate’s lawyers even stated he plays a “character” online for entertainment.

The trial and the Tate’s brand

Most of Tate’s wealth was believed to come from his webcamming business, which he ran from his property in Romania with his brother. The Romanian authorities charged him, his brother, and two more persons with forcing victims into creating pornographic content, promising them relationships or marriage in what is known as the “loverboy” method

Furthermore, Tate used his “manosphere icon” reputation to sell classes on making money through cryptocurrency, copywriting, and e-commerce. His Hustler’s University, later The Real World, also offered courses on male-female social relationships. Tate also ran the “War Room” network. This private members club is frequently accused of being an all-male secretive society, along with allegations of the group members practicing grooming, encouragement of sex work, emotional manipulation, and violence. These online courses and groups are often considered to be social pyramid schemes, and the BBC unveiled its investigation into the “War Room” network in September 2023.

The future of the Tate brand, and subsequently his net worth, largely depends on the outcome of the trial. The former martial arts fighter has already demonstrated his ability to manipulate his image and the wider perception of his wealth, so it is plausible that his reputation with his fans will survive this incident.

However, with his current net worth of approximately $4 million to $12 million, the facts remain that Tate is far less wealthy than his brand might suggest.
