However, he and the Love Island UK 3 star broke up several times before calling it quits for good in the summer of 2019 after Bear hooked up with another girl during their Thailand vacation.

A year after the trip, Harrison publicly accused her ex of secretly recording them having sex without her consent and showing the video to his friends. He responded to the claims insisting the footage in question involved a different woman.

Bear allegedly began selling the video on OnlyFans account

Following his response, Harrison noted she felt “hurt” and “stressed” by the situation in a tweet. She also uploaded a video to her Instagram Story calling her ex out and claimed she’s no longer “protecting” him. Additionally, The Challenge star admitted she believed Bear’s actions deserved jail time.

Harrison seemed ready to fight the situation in court if necessary as she also explained that she has proof that he has distributed the video to friends and uploaded it to platforms including OnlyFans and Pornhub to sell to his subscribers.

Additionally, the UK native posted screenshots of a conversation with Bear seemingly admitting to the video and claimed they had been together since their vacation, as he previously denied.

Harrison also reached out to the OnlyFans official account on social media and asked if they had guidelines preventing users from uploading recordings with non-consenting participants.

The company seemingly responded by disabling Bear’s OnlyFans account. Although he attempted to return with several new profiles, they were eventually taken down due to followers reporting it. The three-time Challenge star then took off to Dubai, where he vacationed for a few weeks.

Once he arrived at the airport in London on Jan. 15, police officers arrested Bear in connection with Harrison’s accusations.
