A MYSTERY "madam" helped run disgraced influencer Andrew Tate's alleged sex trafficking operation in Romania, it is claimed.
The alleged accomplice – named only as Ana B – reportedly signed the contracts and paid the salaries of the women working in Tate's alleged sleazy webcam operation.
Tate, 36, and his brother Tristan were arrested after their luxury Romanian mansion was raided by police last Thursday.
Prosecutors said the brothers are accused of being involved an alleged organised crime ring that sexually exploited at least six women.
Even before their arrest, Tate and his brother were notorious in Romania for a self-proclaimed webcam girl "scam" – which was allegedly kept running smoothly by "Tate's Angels".
It's now reported that a third woman – ex-casino worker Ana – managed all the payments made by Tate's companies from the Romanian town of Popești-Leordeni.

According to Gandul, Ana's home was raided by cops on April 11 last year as as part of the human trafficking probe.
Tate's mansion was also raided as part of the investigation – which was reportedly prompted by a complaint from a US citizen to the American Embassy in Bucharest.
The Tate brothers were detained for several hours – but later released as the investigation continued.
Ana B was also released by cops.

Police did not raid her home as part of the swoop on Tate and his brother last week, and the woman's name doesn't appear in the files prepared by the prosecutors.
Tate and his brother's other alleged right-hand women were also hauled into custody last week.
They are accused of enslaving Romanian and Moldovan women in order to make sex films as well as trafficking women to the UK and US for wealthy clients.
Tate's reported girlfriend Georgiana Naghel, 28, was taken to the cells after the dramatic raid in the town of Voluntari.
The stunning model – who is an American citizen – is believed to have been dating the one-time Big Brother contestant for nearly a year.
She was handcuffed alongside former sub-inspector in the Romanian police turned cam girl, Luana Radu.
The 32-year-old previously worked at a police station in central Bucharest before ditching her job to join the adult industry.
The pair, dubbed "Tate's Angels", are accused of helping to "coerce" and "control" at least six women to take part in online pornographic videos.
The alleged victims were allegedly " kept under house arrest 24/7 like prisoners" while enduring the abuse.
Police said they were trapped after being conned by the "loverboy technique" — falsely professing their love and intention to marry them.
The women were then transported to buildings on the outskirts of Bucharest where "physical violence and mental coercion" including "intimidation, control and constant surveillance" was used to force them to perform sex acts on camera.
The operation was allegedly kept running smoothly with the aid of both Ms Naghel and Ms Radu.
