Tristan Tate is a former professional kickboxer, entrepreneur, and social media personality with a net worth of $50 million. Despite having a moderately successful kickboxing career, he is better known for his controversial social media accounts that promote a misogynist lifestyle.
Born as Emory Andrew Tate III in Chicago, Illinois in December 1986, he is the eldest son of Eileen, a white British woman, and the late Emory Tate II, a black American who was an international chess master. Andrew has two younger siblings, including a brother named Tristan. After the divorce of his parents, Eileen and her children moved to England.
Andrew began his kickboxing career as a cruiserweight at the age of 19 in Luton, England. By 2008, he was ranked as one of the top 10 kickboxers in Britain by the International Sport Kickboxing Association (ISKA). In 2009, he won the ISKA English Full-Contact Cruiserweight Championship and the IKF British Cruiserweight Championship. He also won the ISKA World Full-Contact Light Heavyweight Championship in 2011, and the Enfusion Live World Champion in 2014.
Big Brother Controversy
In 2016, Andrew joined the cast of the British reality TV show “Big Brother.” He was a contestant on the show’s 17th season, but his stint on the show did not last long. After just six days on the show, he was removed from the cast due to a controversial video of him allegedly hitting a girl with a belt.
Entrepreneurship and Social Media
Andrew fashioned himself as an extremely masculine, misogynistic men’s self-help guru, and operates an online subscription business called “Hustler’s University” which gives men advice on how to treat women and be more manly. He uses his social media accounts to promote his business and his controversial lifestyle.
Social Media Bans and Greta Thunberg Interaction
In 2022, Andrew was banned from multiple social media platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok, due to his controversial content. In December 2022, he sent a tweet to environmental activist Greta Thunberg bragging about his car collection and their respective emissions. Greta’s reply to his tweet quickly went viral.
Webcam Business and Car Collection
Andrew and his younger brother Tristan have reportedly made millions of dollars operating a webcam business where men pay to speak with models. The models reportedly have extracted large sums of money from some of the callers by telling sob stories about their lives. Andrew also has a large and valuable car collection, including a Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, two Ferrari 812 competiziones, an Aston Martin Valhalla, two Lamborghinis, a Rolls Royce Wraith, and a McLaren 720s.
On December 29, 2022, Andrew and his brother Tristan were arrested in Romania on charges that allege human trafficking, rape, and being a member of an organized crime group.
Despite his controversial lifestyle and business ventures, Tristan Tate has amassed a significant net worth through his kickboxing career and entrepreneurship. However, his recent arrest and legal troubles may have a significant impact on his net worth in the future.
