Tate, 36, was initially detained on Dec. 29. in Bucharest along with his brother Tristan and two Romanian women, all of whom lost an appeal Tuesday to be released from detention.

In a separate hearing Wednesday at the Bucharest Tribunal Tate lost an appeal challenging assets seized by prosecutors in the case.
