Stephen Bear has been dumped by his 18-year-old girlfriend Tia McAllister after he pretended they were expecting twins.
Furious Tia immediately condemned the prank which saw Stephen, 31, post an ultrasound scan of twins on Twitter, before admitting he ripped the image from Google.
A source told The Sun: “It turns out there weren’t ever official, more just friends with benefits, but they had a big argument last week, and now Tia wants nothing to do with him.
“She said it’s because he’s ruined her reputation and dragged her name through the mud in the influencer world.
“Nobody wants to work with her because she’s been connected to him and that she has lost followers and work from it all. She is absolutely livid about his recent pregnancy stunt and has blocked his number.”
Bear was called “sick” by shocked followers on Twitter and YouTube, who found the prank insensitive and offensive.
He laughed off the backlash in a home video on his YouTube account, claiming Twitter users were unable to take a joke.
He said: “I thought I’d do a little tweet, just having a laugh. I got this picture on Google [shows camera], like a picture of twins. I thought I’d lighten up everyone’s mood today.
“I just feel like you can’t have jokes anymore in this society. I don’t know if it’s just Twitter, but on YouTube everyone seems a lot more fun.
“I go on Twitter and everyone’s so angry, so miserable, they’re so annoyed I’ve done a tweet pretending to have twins. Even though I do want twins. I’m curious to see what the public would think if I did have babies.”
Hairdresser and beautician Tia broke her silence soon after, releasing a statement on Instagram.
She wrote: “I don’t condone what’s been posted and I certainly don’t have any control over what other people post that’s their choice!
“I don’t understand why my name has once again been dragged into a situation that is out of my control… it’s not fair.”
The pair were first pictured together last month after Bear returned to the UK from Dubai.
On his return he was arrested over claims he posted a sex video of his ex-girlfriend Georgia Harrison online, which he denies.
Tia and Bear started dating last summer – and the pair got matching Capricorn star sign tattoos.
They split following a romantic holiday in October, after Bear was reportedly unfaithful.
But in December Bear reached out to the teen after Georgia accused him of secretly filming them having sex, and the pair were quick to reconcile upon his return from the Middle East.
