Controversial streamer Adin Ross has been a longtime friend and advocate of similarly problematic public figure Andrew Tate. Tate and his brother, Tristan, were arrested in late 2022 as suspects of human trafficking and forming an organized crime group; the two have been in and out of prison since.

Adin has often used his large platform of followers to spew similar rhetoric to that of the Tate brothers, as well as defend their actions publicly. But are Adin and Andrew still friends?

Are Adin Ross and Andrew Tate still friends?

At this time, it's not clear exactly where Adin and Tate's friendship stands, though it seems like they're not close as they used to be. Despite Adin repeatedly vocalizing his support for Tate and his brother Tristan on his platform, sometimes collaborating with him on streams and other content, it seems Tate's legal issues have been making it harder for the two to spend time together.

When Tate was initially arrested in late 2022, Adin was criticized by his followers for not traveling out to Romania to visit him, despite being one of the only people cleared for visitation. Adin claimed that if he made the trip to Romania, he would've been arrested, per GameRant, though he offered no further clarification as to why he would also find himself detained by Romanian law enforcement.

Adin Ross revealed during a stream that Andrew Tate was planning to leave Romania.

According to Rolling Stone, Adin read aloud some text messages from Tate during a stream, suggesting that the "king of misogyny" was planning to leave Romania following various charges.

“Andrew had hit me up. He said, ‘Hey, I’m gonna be leaving Romania soon and probably never coming back. If you want to come over and do a week of long streams and content before I leave, I think it’ll be big. And it’s never’ — I’m sorry, he said, ‘It’s basically now or never,'” Adin reportedly said.

Adin asked his fans if this was something they would be interested in, noting "it might be the last time we ever do this."

"So it’s kinda like, we gotta take advantage of it now," he continued. "Because hey, it’s basically, it’s basically like that.”

McCue Law, the firm representing the women accusing Tate of sexual assault and rape, used these comments to issue a warrant for both brothers' arrest, saying in a statement “we were informed by one of our contacts that an associate of Tate (Adin Ross) had discussed Tate’s intention to flee during a video on the gaming and livestreaming platform Kick.”

A spokesperson for the brothers denied to Rolling Stone that they had any intention to leave Romania.

"[Adin Ross] misconstrue[d] Andrew’s message to him," the spokesperson said.

Though it's not entirely clear where Adin and Tate currently stand, it seems like they may not be on the best of terms anymore. Adin has not denounced the Tate brothers for the various allegations lobbied against them, though don't expect him to be making content with Andrew or Tristan anytime soon.
