The Taliban is requesting updates on the arrest of Andrew Tate and is ‘worried’ about the influencer following his detainment in Romania, one of his biggest supporters has claimed.
Sameera Khan, a former beauty queen based in the US, claimed on Twitter last night that she was hosting a meeting with the ruling powers of Afghanistan via the social media app.
The ex-Miss New Jersey, who was once branded ‘wifey’ by Tate following her unwavering support of him, said the Taliban believes the West ‘needs’ him.
Tate, 36, his brother Tristan, 34 and two women – one a former police officer and the other believed to be his girlfriend – have been arrested as part of a probe into allegations of human trafficking, rape and organised crime.
Ms Khan, a self-described ‘anti-woke’ journalist, wrote: ‘We are hosting a Twitter space with the Afghan Taliban to discuss the detainment of Andrew Tate.

‘They are worried about Andrew Tate and they are asking us if he’s free yet. They say westerners need Andrew Tate because we are oppressed by feminists.’
Twitter Spaces allows users to have live conversations on the platform through an audio chatroom, with certain people selected as ‘speakers’ and others as ‘listeners’.
It is not yet clear what was discussed in the meeting or who, if anyone, from the Taliban was present.
MailOnline has contacted Ms Khan for comment.
Ms Khan has long been a supporter of Tate and is regularly using the hashtag ‘FreeTopG’ following his arrest.

She hosted another Twitter space today to discuss the latest updates on the case.
In the chat Ms Khan suggested Mr Tate’s recent conversion to Islam was a ‘threat to the establishment’.
Speaking of his arrest, she said: ‘Clearly this is selective… the establishment want to make their [the Tates’] views the extreme by cancelling them.’
She added: ‘I have gotten death threats over my support for Andrew Tate… I’m used to it… but the attention I’ve gotten over this has been a lot… and overwhelming.’
She also called on fellow Tate supporters to ‘look into’ his lawyer and his track record of winning cases.
One listener told the group: ‘I have some information on Tate’s lawyer… his name is Eugen Vidineac…’
Ms Khan said: ‘Can anyone look into his case record… you know his win/loss…’
She added: ‘So if anyone wants to look into his record… that would be good… I want to hear from people.’
Tate called Ms Khan ‘wifey’ when she tweeted in support of him on December 14 last year.
She had written to her 138,000 Twitter followers: ‘Sorry, your attempt to cancel me for the 876th time this week has failed.
‘I will continue defending @Cobratate [Andrew Tate] (especially knowing how much it triggers leftists seeing women defend him)… stay triggered, leftoid scum.’
It comes after pictures emerged of the two women who were arrested with Tate as part of the human trafficking and rape investigation – one of them a former sub inspector in the Romanian police while the other is his girlfriend.
Luana Radu, 32 was previously based at a police station in central Bucharest but quit the force eight years ago to pursue a career working in video chat rooms, which attract men from all over the world and have become a lucrative industry in Romania.
Model Georgiana Naghel, 28, who is also an American citizen, is described as a businesswoman and influencer who is believed to have been dating Tate for almost a year.
Both women are accused of being Tate’s closest lieutenants with prosecutors claiming that they helped to ‘coerce’ and ‘control’ at least six women to create social media porn content and helped to keep them under house arrest ‘like prisoners.’

Ms Naghel was born in Bucharest and raised in the Tuhari district and is believed to have met Tate through friends soon after he moved to the country five years ago.
After initially helping him with his business interests, the two eventually formed a romantic bond and have become a regular fixture at the city’s exclusive clubs and bars.
While working in video chat rooms, Ms Radu, who also uses the name Ellie Dely on social media met Tate and eventually became his administrative assistant, helping him to manage his online business empire, which is worth an estimated £100 million.
The two women were arrested on Thursday night at Tate’s £600,000 warehouse-style mansion.
They are sharing the same cell at the decrepit Bucharest Police Detention Centre where they have been remanded in custody for 29 days, pending further investigation.
Tate and Tristian are also sharing a cell in the same facility.

Ms Radu graduated from the Romanian Police Academy but is only believed to have served as a police officer for around four years before leaving in 2014 to earn more money in video chat rooms.
Under Romanian law, she was obliged to submit an annual statement of assets to prove her financial situation.
Her last one before leaving the force in 2014 published by Romanian media showed that she had less than £400 to her name.
Ms Naghel has posted few pictures on social media of her and Tate together although last year he posted one of them on a private jet writing: ‘Flying in my Jet with the only woman I trust. Magic powers.’
