Stephen Bear, a reality television star and three-time MTV’s The Challenge competitor, was arrested in London on Friday after Georgia Harrison accused him of sharing intimate content of themselves online without her permission.
Bear was taken into custody on his 31st birthday at Heathrow Airport and was released on bail a day later, according to the Daily Mirror.
The outlet received a statement from Essex police, stating: “A 31-year-old man from Loughton, who was arrested on suspicion of disclosing private sexual images or film without consent with intent to cause distress, voyeurism, harassment and obstructing a police officer, has been released on bail until 10 February.”
Harrison, who has also competed on The Challenge, accused Bear of recording themselves being intimate via CCTV and then sharing the graphic content on his OnlyFans account. Harris said she didn’t know they were being recorded and did not give Bear permission to share it.
Bear has denied Harrison’s accusation.
