Andrew Tate was released on house arrest Friday after spending three months in prison while Romanian authorities pursued an investigation into alleged human trafficking, rape, and gang-related crimes.

Tate's brother, Tristan, as well as two of his female associates secured release via the same order from the Court of Appeal in Bucharest, the Daily Mail reported. None of those four individuals have been formally charged with any crimes.

The former kickboxer enjoys a substantial online following and is particularly popular with young men given his advocacy of a hyper-masculine lifestyle. His Twitter account alone boasts 5.4 million followers.
