According to The Guardian, the charges pertain to alleged offenses against seven women, which the Tate brothers have denied.

Tate first rose to public consciousness as a guest on the U.K.’s “Big Brother” reality show in 2016, where he was criticized for homophobic and racist comments made on Twitter. He was eventually kicked off the show after a video surfaced in which he appeared to be hitting a woman with a belt. Tate and the woman claimed their actions were consensual.

He has since built a following online peddling advice on masculinity and money. He was banned from Twitter in May 2017 before being reinstated by Elon Musk after Musk purchased the social media platform last year.
