Disgraced Stephen Bear was jailed for 21 months last week for voyeurism and two counts of ‘revenge porn’ from which he made £2000.
He had shared a private video of him having sex with his ex, former Love Island star Georgia Harrison, 28, via WhatsApp and OnlyFans without consent.
And a look inside Stephen’s real world is quite different to the illusion of a millionaire lifestyle that he portrayed to his fans in which he boasted about lavish holidays.
During court proceedings, Stephen, 33, would arrive in suits and a long fur coat in a Rolls-Royce and would boast about his OnlyFans career.
But in fact, he lived in a humble three-bed home in Essex, had eight failed businesses and ran his one remaining business from his parents’ house.

His company is called Cubanlink Ltd and his parents Linda and Stephen’s home address in Walthamstow is listed as its registered office.
Moreover, his Rolls-Royce was rented and his occupation is listed as a shop-assistant. And while there is no shame in that career choice, it’s far from what he would have his followers believe.
Stephen, who is engaged to Jessica Smith, was convicted following a trial at Chelmsford Crown Court with television personality Georgia waiving her right to anonymity afforded to her under the Sexual Offences Act, saying she felt compelled to as so many people knew of the video.
Judge Christopher Morgan jailed Stephen for 21 months and gave him a restraining order not to contact Georgia.
As Stephen was led to the cells, the remorseless influencer was heard saying: ‘Have a good evening, enjoy your weekends everyone.’
The reality star was also ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register and will be subject to notification requirements for 10 years.
After the sentencing, Georgia told journalists she was ‘relieved’ it was now over.
‘Today’s sentence is a vindication of what I’ve been put through and sends a clear message that the police and the courts take this matter very seriously,’ she added.

Jet-setting: The couple loved to show off about their lifestyle
‘I want to let all other victims of this crime know that I stand in solidarity with them and I have absolutely no regrets in waiving my anonymity.
‘I hope that this puts anyone off committing this sort of crime and I hope for anyone else who’s been a victim of it gives them some sort of justice.’
His ex, Charlotte Crosby, 32, has said of her romance with Stephen: ‘It wasn’t a great time. There was a lot of heartbreak, but it taught me a lot.
The couple started dating in December 2016 after they met on the set of their MTV show Just Tattoo Of Us.
They were said to have gone their separate ways, with Stephen describing Charlotte as the ‘right girl, wrong time’, when he started filming Celebs Go Dating in January 2017.
Stephen’s ex Charlotte Crosby used to own a joint venture with him called His and Hers Enterprises Limited.
Charlotte was forced to petition the High Court of Justice Business and Property Courts to dissolved the company.
He failed to repay the £1,268 he owed to the company which was left owing £30,366 to creditors.
