Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson is taking a break from the band while she recovers from illness, it has been announced.
A spokesperson for the band revealed the news in a statement, telling fans: “Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons. We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time.”
Earlier this month, Jesy was forced to pull out of the final of Little Mix: The Search due to a mystery illness.
The 29-year-old singer was also left unable to virtually host and perform at the MTV European Music Awards alongside her bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, and Jade Thirwall. At the time, a spokesperson said: “Jesy is unwell and will not be appearing on tonight’s final of Little Mix: The Search.
“She will also not be hosting or performing at tomorrow’s MTV EMAs.”
Neither Jesy nor her fellow bandmates Jade, Leigh-Anne, or Peiier have commented on the break, and Jesy has been quiet on social media since Halloween.
We’re wishing Jesy all the best, and crossing our fingers she’ll be back again soon.
