Charlotte Crosby has contacted the police after Stephen Bear tried to hack her emails.
The Geordie Shore star told OK! Online she has passed the matter to the police after the former Celebrity Big Brother champ shared videos showing him hacking her emails to find proof that she owes him £57,000.
Bear, 28, claimed that she owes him thousands in profits from their clothing company, His and Hers.
OK! Online contacted both parties and Charlotte’s representative responded, saying: “Stephen Bear’s libellous comments are totally false: there is no truth whatsoever in the allegation that Stephen is owed any money by Charlotte, her father or His And Hers Enterprise Ltd.”
They added that they referred the matter to the police, explaining: “Furthermore Stephen’s actions in hacking Charlotte’s personal e mail and publishing her personal details online are illegal. This matter is being handled through the correct channels by Charlotte’s legal team at New Media Law, Charlotte’s accountants at RHK and the Police.”
Bear revealed Charlotte’s personal e-mail address to his 1.3m followers, and shared information showing that the pair’s registered business, His & Hers Ltd, earned more than £114,000 and claimed that he is owed half of this sum.

In one clip, Bear was seen holding up a blow-up doll which he called his solicitor, telling Charlotte to reply to his e-mails.
Bear wrote: “stevie_bear I’ve kept quiet for months. Sleepless nights, terrible comments.”
He then said on Twitter on Thursday, 15 March, 2018, that he is prepared to go to court to recoup the money.
He warned: “I’m excited for the court process and looking forward to what outfit to wear.”
Bear concluded with a line spoken by Jack Nicholson’s the Joker in 1989 Tim Burton’s Batman, and said: “Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight.”
The couple were regularly seen matching jumpers from the clothing brand during their relationship, which came to a messy end late last year.
