Jesy Nelson wants Little Mix feud to end as its getting a bit much after blackfishing claims

Jesy Nelson reportedly wants to end her "feud" with former band Little Mix as she feels it is "getting a bit much".

The singer, 30, left the girl group in December after nine years and only recently released her first solo single, Boyz, featuring Nicki Minaj but was quickly hit with blackfishing allegations after people accused her of trying to make her skin darker than it is — something she denies.

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

As all this is going on, Jesy has unfollowed her ex-bandmates Leigh-Anne, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirwall on Instagram. The trio have also unfollowed her.

Now a source has claimed that this is the "last thing she wanted" knowing that the "fans deserve better".

They told the Mirror: "The last thing she wanted was to be embroiled in a Little Mix vs Jesy feud.

"The Girls have been through a lot together and she truly believes everyone can co-exist in the industry without the war of words. The fans deserve better. It’s all getting a bit much."

OK! has contacted Jesy's representative for comment.

It comes after Jesy's record label denied that blackfishing allegations against the 30 year old have pushed back the release date of her debut solo album.

The ex-Little Mix member faced fresh criticism after dropping her debut single Boyz earlier this month, as many fans and critics accused her of pretending to be mixed-race – a claim the singer has denied.

Following the backlash, Jesy’s team has denied that her album has been postponed to 2022 and insisted that an album for this year was never on the cards.

A source said: “To claim that an album would be released after one single release is literally laughable and obviously was never part of the plan.”

They continued to tell The Mirror: “Jesy is still in the studio recording new music and a second single is in the works. Anybody working in the music industry knows that an album would never follow one single release.

"Jesy has been subject to severe trolling over the past couple of weeks and has kept a dignified silence despite the vindictive swipes against her.”

Polydor, Jesy’s record label, also denied that there were any plans for the singer to release an album this year and branded the rumours of its postponement as “untrue”.

Claims of the singer’s album being pushed back to next year came after a source told The Sun that Jesy wanted the album ready in time for Christmas.

They told the publication: “There was lots of excitement that the album would be ready in time for Christmas. Jesy spent months in the studio at the top of the year after leaving Little Mix and had loads of songs ready to go.

“But the rollout for Boyz took a long time and the team and Jesy didn't want to release an album after only putting out one single. The hope now is that a full collection will follow next year."

Jesy was said to have been “devastated” following the backlash she received in light of her single’s release, and felt like the accusations “somewhat tainted” her celebrations.

"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.co.uk.

"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,” they added.
