The woman, who’s now helping the prosecution, told the BBC she was approached “completely out of the blue” on Facebook.
Tate said he wanted her to be his girlfriend and persuaded her to visit him in Romania then to work as a webcam girl.
But she said Tate became increasingly controlling, fining her if out without his permission and he then became violent.
The woman – the BBC has called Sophie – explained that “most of the violence was sexual, that’s obviously something that he’s into” and “used to strangle me, to the point where I passed out”.
“He likes to feel completely in control of the woman and feel like he could take their life away at any second. That is a big sexual turn on for him.”
Sophie also claims that at one point “he held me up against the wall and he slapped me really hard and followed it with ‘you whore’.”
Her allegations come after has also been accused of violently abusing two women while running a webcam business the UK, even before appearing on Big Brother.
Sophie says that eventually she managed to leave the relationship with “narcissist” Tate, who she also describes as “very manipulative” and lacking in “any kind of empathy”.
“I just had to get away from it. I remember being at work and I was just so overwhelmed and I’d never felt a darkness like it.”
Mateea Petrescu, who handles media requests for the Tate brothers, told the BBC they would not comment on the claims.
It is alleged the Tates and their two enforcers – also known as their “angels” – would exploit the women, taking half of their earnings as they carried out sex work on OnlyFans.
Andrew is claimed to have lured an unnamed woman, from Moldova, to join him in Romania – assuring her “nothing bad would happen”.
He is then alleged to have raped her twice, according to prosecutors, as she joined his operation.
A court last week rejected a bid by the pair to be released on bail meaning they will stay in jail until at least February 27.
The Tates have now hired as their lawyer Tina Glandian, who has represented disgraced stars Chris Brown, Mike Tyson and Jussie Smollett.
