Former kickboxer Andrew Tate said he had accepted he might never have left prison in his first email correspondence with fans since his release, sent on Sunday.
Brothers Andrew and Tristan have been released from prison Romania on Friday.
They had been detained since December 29 on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and forming an organization crime group to exploit women.
In his first communication since moving to house arrest, the controversial content creator reflected: ‘If you really believe that you have been screwed, the system is against you and you will never get out. A strange sense of calm comes over you.’
“When I accepted that I might never get out of prison, I felt BETTER. Isn’t that insane?’
He said Romanian law enforcement officials “decided when I woke up, when I slept, when I ate and where I went.”

In the email, Tate urged his subscribers to realize they were also “not free” and living “INSIDE of the Matrix.”
“In your life, your boss decides when you wake up and when you eat and your couch decides where you go.”
Andrew, his brother Tristan and alleged accomplices Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu will remain under house arrest until April 29 after winning an appeal to be released from prison.
They remain under investigation.
The suspects had appealed against their detention several times over the past four months, without success.
Taty has maintained his innocence since his release from prison.

“They will continue to fight to clear their names of these fabricated accusations; however, this is a big step in the right direction.’
Tate took to Twitter on April 1 to share a video of him pacing back and forth, smoking, under house arrest.

‘Pacing a 3 meters [sic] cell without electronics or external contact.
‘Absolute clarity of mind. Real thoughts. Real plans.
Earlier today, he shared a still of himself from the video with an ominous caption in response to a Dec. 14 post that read “If they kill me, I’ll love you all.”
He wrote: ‘I prepare my body to absorb the brutal kinetics of penetrating lead.
“As all other attempts to silence fail and Phase 3 approaches, I expect that a bullet will be the chosen means of pacification.
“I can only pray and prepare.”

Tate was previously banned from the site, but reinstated by Elon Musk following his takeover of the site late last year.
In January, he said he was allowed to contact fans via email for the first time from prison.
He wrote that he was left in a cell with no light, with cockroaches and bedbugs as his “only friends at night.”
