… And now Four has become Three as Jesy Nelson announces her departure from girl group, Little Mix.
After nine years of being a member of Little Mix, 29-year-old Jesy Nelson has announced on her Instagram page that she is leaving the group and explained why she took the decision.
The four piece girl group was brought to limelight in 2011 after winning The X Factor singing competition. In her statement, Jesy said “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 that process.”
“So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I’m announcing I’m leaving Little Mix.”
“I need to spend time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy. I’m ready to embark on a new chapter in my life.”
“I don’t know what it’s going to look like right now, but I hope you’ll still be there to support me.”
Jesy Nelson concludes her announcement giving thanks to other members of the group, and all their fans.
