Jesy Nelson admits its ‘sad’ she and former Little Mix bandmates no longer talk

Jesy Nelson told host Graham Norton that she no longer is speaking to her former Little Mix bandmates.

Making her debut solo appearance on the chat show in an episode which airs on Friday night, Jesy discussed the state of her current relationship with the band, after their rift hit headlines recently in response to her latest music video for single, Boyz.

“We’re not talking any more,’ she said to Graham.

“It is sad but honestly there is no bad blood from my side, and I still love them to pieces and genuinely wish them all the best.”

This revelation comes after Jesy was accused of blackfishing – which means to accuse someone of pretending to have Black or mixed race heritage – in her music video.

Messages from Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s Instagram account to TikToker No Hun later surfaced where the singer also appeared to accuse Jesy of blackfishing.

Nicki Minaj, who features on Jesy’s single and in her video, rose to her defence during the height of the backlash – particularly against Leigh-Anne for her remarks, calling her a “jealous clown”, causing Little Mix to unfollow them both on Instagram.

“I loved my time with them, and we’ve got the most incredible memories together but It’s just one of those things which needs to take time, so who knows,” Jesy added upon the tumultuous situation.

“To me they are still the sickest girl band in the world.”

There to perform her debut solo single for the first time on TV, Jesy took to the stage wearing a black leather jacket and matching baggy trousers with chains as she moved around energetically with her backup dancers.

She was also seen sporting platinum straight hair – a departure from her signature dark-coloured locks – and glittery trainers to complete the look.

The 30-year-old didn’t appear nervous, despite having to perform in front of intimidating guest President Barack Obama, who appeared with her on The Graham Norton show, to the surprise of fans after hearing the lineup.

“Graham Norton going for the Random festival line up idea… Jesy Nelson and Barack Obama???” said one follower. “COUNT ME IN.”

“Why are Graham Norton’s line-ups so chaotic? I feel like he does this on purpose," said a second follower.

Another wrote: “WHAT IN THE LORD’s NAME? Only Graham can manage to get the most distinctive personalities at the same place.”

The engaging line-up has sparked much interest online as viewers wait in anticipation to watch how the guests get on with each other on the show Friday night.
