Little Mix were once a sisterhood after achieving so much together after winning the X Factor in 2011.

However, since Jesy Nelson announced her departure from the band and gone on to create a name for herself as a solo star reports have been rife about the singer feuding with former bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards.

At the time, Jesy shared with fans she was leaving via an emotional Instagram statement – but did not detail how she shared the news with women she’d been working with for nine years.

Little Mix decided to go on as a threesome and in a statement said that they “are fully supportive of Jesy” but likewise to Jesy they did not detail on the moment they found out that she was saying goodbye.

And now, an insider has claimed that Jesy orchestrated a scenario in order to not have to deal with Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie face-to-face and that they were left “devastated” when told by “her lawyers.”

Shedding light on what went down, the source told MailOnline: “Jesy created this scenario. She left the band without telling the girls or management directly and they heard about it through her lawyers.

“Those around her have been supporting her for ten years and protected her and are devastated over all this.”

In recent days a toxic feud has been brewing between the foursome after Jesy’s new song has got people talking – for all the wrong reasons.

Essex native Jesy came under fire as several social media users accused the chart-topper of blackfishing, a term that refers to someone who is pretending to be black or mixed-race.

Then Leigh-Anne was accused of slating Jesy in leaked DMs sent to Instagram user No Hun.

NoHun had asked fans if he should perform a routine to Jesy’s debut solo track and Leigh-Anne replied saying “no”.

The leaked DMs appeared to show Leigh-Anne encouraging an influencer to take down Jesy in a video, calling her “horrible”.

Following this, Jesy was slammed by Little Mix fans as they accused her of sitting back and laughing while Nicki Minaj went on an explosive rant at Leigh-Anne’s expense on an Instagram Live.

Nicki called Leigh-Anne “jealous” and a “clown” and Jesy failed to defend her former bandmate.

She’s revealed that the pressure of being in the group affected her “mental health” when she shared the news to fans.

She announced her shock departure on her Instagram page after announcing she was taking extended time off from the group the month prior.

She wrote to her 7.3 million followers that she was leaving with a “heavy heart” as she reflected on the success Little Mix have enjoyed since winning The X Factor back in 2011.

Jesy penned: “To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life.

“We have achieved things I never thought possible. From winning our first Brit Award to our sold out shows at the O2.

“You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never every forget it.”

She went on to reveal the reason behind the decision to quit the band.

Jesy added: “The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.

“There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin the process.

“I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing thing that make me happy. I’m ready to embark on a new chapter in my life – I’m not sure what it’s going to look like right now, but I hope you’ll still be there to support me.

“I want to say thank you to everyone involved in our journey. All the hard work and dedication that went into making us a success.



Little Mix are now a trio

“To every single fan who came to see us in concert, who listened to our songs and sung their hearts out, sent me messages and supported me along the way I want you to know I love you all so much and I could never have done this without you and I appreciate it endlessly.

“Most of all I want to say thank you to Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne for creating some of the most amazing memories I’l neve forget. I hope that you’ll continue to fufill all of your dreams and keep making music that people love. Love Jesy.”

In a separate statement published by Little Mix, the remaining three members, Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne reacted to their bandmate’s words.

They wrote: “After an amazing 9 years together Jesy has made the decision to leave Little Mix. This is an incredibly sad time for all of us but we are fully supportive of Jesy.

“We love her very much and agree that it is so important that she does what is right for her mental health and well-being. We are still very much enjoying our Little Mix journey and the 3 of us are not ready for it to be over.”

The girl band, who found fame on The X Factor, added: “We know that Jesy leaving the group is going to be really upsetting news for our fans. We love you guys so much and are so grateful for your loyalty and continued support of all of us.

“We’re looking forward to seeing so many of you on tour.

“Love always, Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne xxx.”
