Jesy has broken her silence to say she has left Little Mix as her bandmates announced her departure. Announcing the decision on Instagram, Jesy thanked her bandmates and fans, and described her time with the group as “the most incredible time of my life”
Jesy’s decision comes a month after she took time off from the group, citing “private medical reasons”.
Jesy Nelson is to take an “extended” break from the pop group for “private medical reasons”, their publicist has said.
A statement didn’t give any further details about the 29-year-old’s condition.
It comes after Nelson recently missed the final of the girl group’s BBC One talent show, and their hosting of the MTV European Music Awards.
Little Mix’s latest album entered the UK chart at number two on Friday.
In a statement, the group’s publicist said: “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.”
Nelson’s bandmates Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade were seen without her on the final of Little Mix: The Search on 7 November, and on the MTV EMAs the following night.bbc.com

The Little Mix singer reflects on almost a decade in the spotlight, and the depression and anxiety that stemmed from obsessively reading comments people had written about her online.
There’s a rash on Jesy Nelson’s cleavage and she wants me to look at it. “It comes up every time I talk about all this stuff,” she says, smiling. The Little Mix singer is mid-way through telling me about her new BBC documentary, which aired last night, but has stopped to point at her chest. She’s clearly a little nervous, and not just because this is the first interview the 28-year-old can remember doing without her bandmates by her side.READ MORE & INFO: vice.com
