Stephen Bear’s ex-girlfriend Georgia Harrison arrives at court for shamed reality star’s confiscation hearing after revenge porn trial


Stephen Bear‘s ex-girlfriend Georgia Harrison has arrived at court for the shamed reality star’s confiscation hearing.

Bear, who won Celebrity Big Brother in 2016, secretly recorded a sex video with Harrison as they had sex in his garden and then uploaded it to over-18s subscription site Only Fans. He was jailed for 21 months in February last year.

A court previously heard how Bear gained £22,300 profit by sharing the CCTV footage of himself online.

His OnlyFans subscriber count was said to have leapt 43 per cent as a result of the video, from 1,061 when it was uploaded on November 8, 2020 to 1,883 by the time his account was deactivated on December 8.

The footage was available to subscribers behind a $9.99 US (£7.84) paywall on his profile @hollywoodbear.

There was said to have been a ‘jump up’ in the $9.99 purchases when the footage started to ‘go viral’.

A total of 273 subscribers purchased the video and, following the standard 20 per cent cut to OnlyFans, this earned Bear £1,650.98, the court heard.

After the video was posted he adjusted his subscription fee, from a range of $7.50 (£5.89) to $50 (£39.28).

Through extra subscribers drawn in by the video, he was found to have earned £15,440.28, on top of the £1,650.98 earned through the paywall, the court was told at a hearing on January 26.

Calculations on how much Bear earned from the video were debated during the hearing, which the judge noted was made problematic by the convicted sex offender refusing take to the witness box and give evidence.

A MailOnline investigation last month found Bear – who had boasted of living a billionaire lifestyle with a plush bachelor pad and fast cars – is now living at his mother’s modest semi in Walthamstow.
