Andrew Tate said he had made the request to leave the country after his mother suffered a heart attack.

In a statement given to the Associated Press, Tate's spokesperson said the ruling "has left us disheartened".

The kickboxer, 37, and his brother, Tristan, 35, who are both dual UK-US nationals, were ordered not to leave Romania after being charged with rape, human trafficking and forming a criminal gang.

The duo have denied all allegations of abuse and trafficking, with a trial due to take place.

"The Romanian state decided she must be alone at Christmas, if she is alive."

In a follow-up post, he said: "There's no innocent until proven guilty in Romania."

Their spokesperson said yesterday: "It is our understanding that she will be undergoing emergency surgery.

"Her discharge from the hospital is contingent on the success of this critical procedure.

"In light of this critical and devastating situation, Andrew and Tristan are hopeful that the court will expedite their request to temporarily leave the country to be with their mother and support her during this challenging time."
