Andrew Tate’s parents are Emory Andrew Tate Jr. (father) and Eileen Ashleigh Tate (mother). His dad was a talented chess player who won the Indiana Chess Championship six times. He also served in the United States Armed Forces for twelve years, from 1980 to 1982. His mom, on the other hand, used to work in a diner to support the family while Andrew and his siblings were growing up.
Andrew Tate was very close to his late father, who died in 2015, and he also remains quite close to his mother, who is also a very integral part of his current existence.
It must be mentioned, however, that much of Andrew Tate’s views on gender roles were drawn from the experiences he had as a child while watching his parents try, and ultimately fail at the institution of marriage. That leaves us with the responsibility of exploring the lives of the former couple responsible for bringing King Cobra into the world.
Who Was Andrew Tate’s Father, Emory Tate Jr.?
Andrew Tate’s father was born Emory Andrew Tate Jr. on December 27, 1958, in Chicago, Illinois, United States. He was born under the zodiac sign of Capricorn and was an American citizen by birth. He was named after his father, Emory Andrew Tate, and belonged to the African American ethnic group.
There is not much information about Emory Jr.’s mom or any of his other birth family members. We also have no way of determining what his childhood was like. Several sources have confirmed, though, that he was academically gifted and even earned a full scholarship to Northwestern University. Unfortunately, he reportedly dropped out of college because of his social life.
Emory joined the United States Armed Forces in 1980 before spending the next 12 years of his life as a soldier. Sources have confirmed that he was stationed in the UK during his army service. After his discharge from the army in 1992, he moved to Indiana where he picked several off jobs, including at his sister’s McDonald’s franchise. Being a talented chess player, he continued playing chess and traveled the country to compete in tournaments.
Andrew’s dad won the Indiana State Championship six times, a feat that promoted his induction into the Indian State Chess Hall of Fame. He was also a five-time champion of the United States Armed Forces Chess Championship.
His exploits in the game of chess also earned him the title of International Master, the third highest ranking in the game of chess. Emory Jr. loved his children, but Andrew revealed that he was always careful around his quite eccentric father who played a big role in shaping him into the man he is today.
Emory Andrew Tate Jr. died in 2015 after fainting from a heart attack during a match at a chess competition held in California. He was 56 years old when he died.
Meet Andrew Tate’s Mother, Eileen Tate
Andrew’s mother is none other than Eileen Ashleigh Tate. She was born in Luton, United Kingdom, a fact that confirms her national identity as British. She also belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group. Eileen’s date of birth is currently unknown, but she looks like a woman in her 60s.
The identity of members of her birth family, including her parents, and any siblings she might have had, is unknown at the moment. Most of her childhood was spent in the run-down Luton town environment but she managed to get a good education. She graduated from Rotherham High School and Barnfield University.
Despite her relatively sufficient education, Eileen does not have professional working experience and instead, used to work as a dinner lady at Newman Catholic School to support Tate and his siblings following her divorce from their father.
The pay was quite low, and it spurred the Cobra on with a desire to earn enough money so she could retire from such a menial job. She is still alive and continues to live in the United Kingdom. Despite the distance between her and her children, she continues to play significant roles in the lives of Andrew and his siblings who constantly applaud her for being a great mother to them as kids.
Andrew Tate’s Parents Were Married For Twelve Years
Recall that Emory Tate was stationed in the United Kingdom during his days in the United States Armed Forces. While he was there, he met and fell in love with the woman who would later become the mother of his children.
We have yet to ascertain how long the former couple dated, but they eventually exchanged marital vows in 1985. The details of the ceremony have paled in view of several rather interesting events that transpired during their marriage, which ultimately lasted for just a dozen years.
According to close sources, including Andrew and his brother Tristan, the Tate home had its moments but was largely fraught with challenges, such as Emory cheating on his wife, which eventually led to the dissolution of the marriage in 1997.
Following the divorce which happened when Andrew was just eleven years old, his mother returned to her hometown in Luton, England, with the influencer and his two younger siblings. The divorce changed the dynamic of the former kickboxer’s life in the sense that he was raised by a single mother whom he described as mean and hard.
He, however, admits that she had to be that way to effectively raise him and his siblings. His dad visited once a year, according to Andrew, but it did not much affect the relationship he had with him.
Andrew Tate Is Not The Only Child Of His Parents
Born Emory Andrew Tate III on December 14, 1986, Andrew is the first child of his parents who had two more children after he was born about a year after his parents’ marriage.
Two years after the birth of Andrew, Emory Jr. and Eileen welcomed another child, also a son who was named Tristan Tate. Tristan was born on July 15, 1988, and is just about a year and a half younger than his older brother Andrew.
The brothers are quite close and built their business from the quite sizable profit they made from investing in crypto currency. Andrew and Tristan have a younger sister named Janine Tate. Janine is a lawyer and also a staunch feminist, according to the Tate brothers who revealed that they had not spoken to her in years because of their opposing views on gender roles.
They did say they love her and wish her well in her endeavors.
