STEPHEN Bear has been snubbed by his millionaire brother Danny after he landed a huge Hollywood movie deal but turned down a chance to become an influencer like his shamed sibling.
The reality star, 33, is currently in jail after being convicted of voyeurism for recording and leaking a sex tape with Towie ex Georgia Harrison without permission.
But while he sits behind bars, his brother Danny's career is going from strength to strength as he heads to Hollywood to play a leading role in an undisclosed movie and is set to earn money Stephen "could only ever dream of", an insider revealed.
A source close to Danny Bear said: "Danny’s not the kind of guy to brag about things, but he’s slowly been climbing the ladder of success with his acting over the last few years and has really made quite a name for himself.
"He’s got a lead part in Hollywood that he’ll be filming next year with some A-list actors so it’s clear to everyone he’s not blending into the background anymore.
"He’s been referred to as being ‘unique’ and that’s exactly what he is.

"Danny’s being paid the kind of money now that his brother Stephen could have only ever dreamed of.
"With over a million followers on Instagram, Danny could be easily lapping up the opportunity for paid posts as an influencer in the way that Stephen did – but why would he do that with such a credible career of his own.
"It’s clear that Stephen isn’t going to be delighted about the fact that Danny has 'turned down’ social media paid posts and might take it as a bit of a snub, and a dig at his former career – but Danny can easily rise above that."
As well as dabbling in movies, Danny is already a multi-millionaire after selling his bakery business to Tesco.

He also set up a hospitality business with Elvis Presley’s wife Priscilla, according to an Instagram post last February, where he posted a photo with the businesswoman and actress in Gstaad, Switzerland.
According to the source, Danny is keen for his family to rise above the stresses and strains they have been through with Stephen and look to the future.
"Yes, Stephen is his brother – and yes, his family have been through the mill with all of Stephen’s troubles – but Danny is making sure that the family bounces back from all that by doing well and working hard at it," the source said.
"Having a lead role in an action film is huge for Danny and not an opportunity to be taken for granted.
"There are more things in the pipeline that are complete game changers for his career – but this next one is really where it all starts."
Bear was jailed for 21 months in March after sharing the secret sex tape on OnlyFans.
He was found guilty of voyeurism and two counts of disclosing private, sexual photographs and films.
His girlfriend OnlyFans model Jessica Smith ended her relationship with Stephen just six months after he was jailed despite initially vowing to stand by the disgraced star.
She told pals that she had “come to her senses” describing her relationship as “fake and toxic”.
Last month Stephen was ordered to tear down a huge privacy fence surrounding his £600,000 home in Loughton, Essex, by the council.
