On Friday (3 March) Stephen Bear was sentenced to 21 months in prison on 'revenge porn' charges against his ex-girlfriend, former Love Island star Harrison.
The 33-year-old was found guilty of sharing a private video of the pair having sex via his OnlyFans account.
Harrison was unaware that they were being recorded during the consensual act, Jacqueline Carey KC, prosecuting, told an earlier trial at Chelmsford Crown Court.
Jessica Smith, Bear's fiancée, shared a video of the disgraced TV personality defending himself and said 'innocent until proven guilty'.
He went on to say that the only 'good' thing that came from the 'situation' was that he was diagnosed with ADHD, depression and anxiety.
"So, hopefully I can get some help and some treatment maybe it can be a bit of talking therapy I don't know - I just need some help really because going through mental health is really hard and I live with this every single day."
The former Celebrity Big Brother star said he hopes to give his side of the story.
Bear's declaration was co-signed by Smith who shared the video to her Twitter account.
She tweeted alongside the video: “I love you. I’ll always be by your side, stay strong babe. The truth will come out… you never had a fair trial.”
In a follow-up tweet, Smith shared a black and white selfie of the pair together, writing: “Through thick and thin my love. I’ll see you soon.”
Harrison responded directly to Smith’s tweets and said the story has been proven in court. “He’s had 2 and a half years to tell his story,” she tweeted on Sunday. “He was questioned for hours by the police, a judge and barristers during which he was given a platform in crown court to explain himself. There is only one side of the story and that side was proven in court. Open your eyes."
The prosecutor said that Bear showed Harrison the footage of them having sex, to which she told her boyfriend at the time to 'never to send' it to anyone and 'made it plain how upset she would be if he did'.
The complainant said that she saw Bear send the footage to someone on WhatsApp that same day, and later that year she was made aware that it was circulating online.
Bear denied all the charges against him and claimed at the trial that he deleted the footage and didn’t share it with anyone.
