Is Stephen Bear cashing in on his revenge porn notoriety? Shamed reality star’s ‘Mexican Cartel’ tracksuit is being sold for £50 on anonymous ‘prisonissuedrip’ TikTok account where it’s modelled by man wearing ski mask


Shamed reality TV star Stephen Bear arrived at court today wearing a ‘Mexican Cartel tracksuit that is being sold on an anonymous TikTok account. 

He walked into Chelmsford Crown Court in the £50 outfit to face a confiscation hearing after he was convicted of sharing a sex tape of his ex Georgia Harrison.

The red and black tracksuit has been promoted in a series of TikTok videos, along with the phrase ‘prisonissuedrip.com’, since February 20, and links to a website called ‘Mexican Cartel Drip’.

Some of the TikTok videos feature a man wearing the tracksuit with only their eyes visible through a ski mask – and this appears to bear resemblance to Bear. 

The posts include phrases such as ‘I don’t listen to people who say my dreams are impossible; I just work to prove them wrong’; ‘when they owe you money and their living their best life on socials’; and ‘work so hard to make your mum proud’. 

This afternoon, the account posted pictures of Bear outside court, saying: ‘Gassed to see the main man Stephen Bear rockin’ our tracksuit. Link in bio to get yours.’

MailOnline has today contacted the owner of the website – the domain for which was only created on February 25 – for clarity on any involvement from Bear in the range.

When the 34-year-old arrived at court he also displayed a cross necklace, a gold watch and sunglasses – and held a Louis Vuitton Pochette Voyage cloth travel bag worth around £1,000. He wore a pair of Nike Air Jordan 36 Flight School trainers which sell for up to £150 on eBay.

It comes two months after Celebrity Big Brother winner Bear walked out of prison on January 14, having served 10-and-a-half months for sharing on his OnlyFans site a private film of him having sex with The Only Way Is Essex star Georgia Harrison

The 34-year-old was jailed on March 3 last year after being found guilty of voyeurism and of two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

Today’s confiscation hearing at Chelmsford Crown Court, over profits he made from the video, was adjourned until Friday.

Harrison was also at court today, supported by her Love Island beau Anton Danyluk as she arrived.

Harrison and Danyluk, who finished in fifth place on the recent series of Love Island: All Stars, appeared sombre as they arrived for the hearing.

Harrison, 29, wore a black dress, coat and boots, while Danyluk, 28, was dressed in a black shirt, tie and trousers and a grey jacket.

Bear gained £22,300 profit by sharing the CCTV footage of himself having sex with Harrison in a garden on OnlyFans, a court previously heard.

His OnlyFans subscriber count was said to have leapt 43 per cent as a result of the video, from 1,061 when it was uploaded on November 8, 2020 to 1,883 by the time his account was deactivated on December 8.

The footage was available to subscribers behind a $9.99 US (£7.84) paywall on his profile @hollywoodbear.

There was said to have been a ‘jump up’ in the $9.99 purchases when the footage started to ‘go viral’.

A total of 273 subscribers purchased the video and, following the standard 20 per cent cut to OnlyFans, this earned Bear £1,650.98, the court heard.

After the video was posted he adjusted his subscription fee, from a range of $7.50 (£5.89) to $50 (£39.28).

Through extra subscribers drawn in by the video, he was found to have earned £15,440.28, on top of the £1,650.98 earned through the paywall, the court was told at a hearing on January 26.

Calculations on how much Bear earned from the video were debated during the hearing, which the judge noted was made problematic by the convicted sex offender refusing take to the witness box and give evidence.
