“Every time he turned up he had something different.”
Last year, Stephen Bear was found guilty of one count of voyeurism and two counts disclosing private sexual photographs and films, after his former partner Georgia Harrison brought the case against him.
Harrison, a former Love Island star, had accused him of filming her non-consensually during a sex act and then uploading the content to his OnlyFans account, where users could pay to view it.
Bear was arrested in 2021 at Heathrow Airport, and faced his charges in court in December. He is currently awaiting sentencing.
During the trial, Bear was photographed attending court in outlandish outfits. This behaviour, Georgia says, made a “mockery” of his crimes.
Georgia made the comments in an upcoming episode of Emily Clarkson and Alex Light’s Should I Delete That podcast (obtained via Metro).
She said: “Every time he turned up he had something different – a cigar, a cane, a fur coat. It was just another complete mockery of the situation, showing what a joke he thinks it all is.”
After Bear was found guilty, Georgia issued a statement calling for more protection for victims of image-based sexual abuse.
She said: “We are living in a time where so much of our lives and our children’s lives are spent online and it is so important that individuals are protected in the virtual world just as they are in reality. Social media has given us the egalitarian belief that we are all publishers but what it hasn’t done is regulate what we should responsibly publish.
“I hope me taking a stand gives other men and women who have fallen victim to revenge porn the courage to seek justice and most importantly show them that they have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.”
