Along with Andrew and Tristan Tate, Romanian police have remanded a further two people in custody. One is a former police officer, Luana Radu, and the other is believed to be in a relationship with Tate, Georgiana Naghel.
Both of these women have been arrested as part of the DIICOT (Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism) investigation in Romania, per Romanian media.
The pair have been dubbed “Tate’s Angels”, although it is not yet clear to what extent they were involved in his businesses.
Who is Luana Radu?
Romanian outlet SpyNews reports that Radu is a former policewoman in the country, who quit to “help the Tate brothers in their organized crime business.”
Radu has been summoned in court on charges of failing to pay debt. “[Radu] is being cited before the judges in a case in which a bailiff requests seizure at the source, for the recovery of debts,” the outlet reports.
Radu went by Ellie Dely on social media, with over 300,000 followers on Instagram, where she is seen posing with Tate’s infamous Bugatti – which has now reportedly been seized.

Along with Radu, Naghel was arrested as part of the raid on the Tate property.
As reported by Reuters, prosecutors said that the suspects “appear to have created an organized crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content meant to be seen on specialized websites.”
Tate and his brother are being held for a minimum of 30 days, although their lawyer has said they will appeal this.
