Georgia Harrison has said she's planning to sue Stephen Bear while breaking her silence following his sentencing.
Earlier this month, Bear, 33, was given 21 months in prison after being found guilty on two counts of disclosing private sexual images and receiving a majority verdict of 10-2 on the count of voyeurism.
The former Big Brother contestant was charged for sharing a CCTV video of him and Harrison - his ex partner - having sex on his OnlyFans account without her permission.
The 28-year-old Love Island star, who waived her right to anonymity, told Chelmsford Crown Court she had never consented to being recorded while she had consensual sex with Bear.
She also hadn’t given permission for the tape, filmed in Bear's garden in August 2020, to be shared online.
In a new interview with The Sun, Harrison opened up about the shocking ordeal and the impact it's had on her life.
"On the day it was taken, Bear told me there had been cameras I wasn’t aware of. He acted like it was an accident," she said.
But she later saw him sending the footage to his friends, stating: "Then someone sent me a recording of it from America.
"Then I knew it had been spread not just in the UK, but globally.
"For months, my state of mind was really not good. From the moment I heard he was showing people I felt completely out of control.
"I felt used and violated."
Harrison explained that she logged into his OnlyFans where she found a 'screenshot of him on top of me'.
"He put the caption as something along the lines of: ‘Sign up now for 50 per cent off to see me f***ing this b***h in my garden,'" she said.
"It made me feel so violated. All I’ve ever done was be good to him as a friend and as more."
The reality TV star told the outlet that she's now planning to sue him for loss of earnings, adding: "People don’t realise how much this damaged my career.
"I’ve gone through two years of being dropped by every brand who ever worked with me. My career was thriving prior to it."
Harrison is set to open up about the ordeal in an ITV2 documentary titled Revenge Porn: Georgia vs Bear, which will air on 20 March.
"There will be conversations and voice notes revealed between me and Bear where he denied it was me and denied he had released it," she said. "It shows just how heartless he was."
