Andrew Tate’s legal team has claimed he has a tumour as the detained influencer faces another month in a Romanian prison.
The 36-year-old former kickboxer and his brother have been jailed in Romania since late December on suspected rape and human trafficking offences.
Now, Mr Tate’s spokesperson confirmed health fears that the influencer reportedly held before being detained.
“Tate has a dark spot on his lung, most likely a tumour,” a spokesman told MailOnline.
Mr Tate’s team also said that prior to detention, Mr Tate had a medical consultation in Dubai about a “serious health condition”.
His team added that doctors in Romania and Dubai wrote medical documents which confirmed he has a lesion on his upper right lung, which could be a sign of a tumour.
The influencer’s doctors have thus requested for Mr Tate’s release from prison so he can receive medical treatment in Dubai.
However, Romanian officials have refused to allow him to go to Dubai for treatment, saying he can be attended to in Romania.
A spokesperson for Mr Tate told MailOnline that the 36-year-old was taken to a Romanian local clinic because he was not allowed to be monitored by his “chosen medical team in Dubai”.
He added: “No official diagnosis has been confirmed and he is in good shape and is staying strong. His doctors have requested that he returns to Dubai for further testing. Andrew has not demanded this.
“This is not a health issue to be taken lightly and all due diligence is being made to make sure he gets the best medical care that is available to him.”
The news come after a Romanian court rejected appeals from Mr Tate’s legal team against a 30-day extension in jail earlier this week.
It was the former kickboxer’s third appeal against his detention since his arrest.
Despite being detained, he continues to attract the loyalty of his millions of followers while his social media accounts are still active.
Hashtags such as #FreeTopG and references to “Matrix” opposition have flooded social media since the influencer’s arrest in December.
