“After an amazing 9 years together Jesy has made the decision to leave Little Mix. This is an incredibly sad time for all of us but we are fully supportive of Jesy. We love her very much and agree that it is so important that she does what is right for her mental health and well-being. We are still very much enjoying our Little Mix journey and the 3 of us are not ready for it to be over. We know that Jesy leaving the group is going to be really upsetting news for our fans. We love you guys so much and are so grateful for your loyalty and continued support of all of us. We’re looking forward to seeing so many of you on tour.

UPDATE: Jesy has penned an open letter:
Nelson has been on a “hiatus” since November, with the official word being that she was recovering from illness.
Confirmation of her departure comes amidst the campaign for Little Mix’s sixth studio album ‘Confetti’ – which has spawned a number of hits including ‘Holiday’ and ‘Break Up Song.’
We wish both Jesy and the group the best moving forward.
