Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock made her return to social media with an empowering post today after being embroiled in a row with ex-bandmate Jesy Nelson
Leigh-Anne Pinnock has made a return to social media with a very empowering post after she was embroiled in a row with Jesy Nelson.
The songstress, 30, took to her Twitter on Friday and shared a cute video of her and the remaining Little Mix girls doing a secret handshake.
Over the last few days, Leigh-Anne and her former bandmate Jesy had a public spat after DMs, which were allegedly sent by the Little Mix star, were leaked online by TikTok influencer No Hun.
Jesy’s new song got people talking – for all the wrong reasons – 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 the messages which were leaked.
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.
But Leigh-Anne has come back to her social platforms with a positive message for her fans after they watched the group and ex-member Jesy publicly fallout.
“Going strong, hello?” Leigh-Anne says at the beginning of the video as she puts her hand in the middle of her girls.
Perrie and Jade join in, while Perrie shouts: “Yeah, Little Mix!”
Meanwhile, Jesy is reportedly gutted at how things have turned sour between her and her ex-bandmates.
And now, an insider close to the Essex native Jesy has told that she feels the backlash is a “personal attack against her.”
The former X Factor star reportedly is upset at it becoming a “Little Mix vs Jesy storyline” and sees it as “a shame.”
“What should have been a positive and happy celebration has been somewhat tainted by what has started to feel like a personal attack against her, a source told Metro.
They added: “It’s starting to become a Little Mix vs Jesy storyline, when ultimately the band and Jesy have always stood for women supporting women and so it’s a shame to see this taking such a sour turn.”
Addressing the blackfishing accusations they added that “she’s devastated” and “understands she still has a lot of learning to do.”
