It’s fast becoming one of the ugliest feuds in showbusiness, but fans cannot help but speculate on Jesy Nelson's split from Little Mix.
The Boyz singer, 30, left the chart-topping girl band last year, and is now focusing on her solo career.
While both Jesy and the rest of Little Mix (Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock) have all been very publicly supportive of one another’s endeavours, things turned nasty after Jesy released the video for her latest single.
Jesy was accused of ‘blackfishing’ with the Boyz music video, causing widespread backlash. And while Jesy has denied ever meaning to appropriate different cultures, she found herself in the centre of even more controversy after her livestream with Nicki Minaj saw her laughing along as the rapper called new mum Leigh-Anne a ‘clown’, after an influencer shared unverified DM’s of ‘Leigh-Anne’ telling him to make a video criticising Jesy’s new look.
Neither Leigh-Anne, Perrie or Jade have commented publicly about the messages or the music video.
Now, fans have listened once more to Little Mix’s new song ‘Cut You Off’, with many now speculating the lyrics are about Jesy.
The chorus sees the band singing: “Someone tell me how
How did we get here? (Here)
It used to be so good (Be so good)
Nothing lasts forever, but I really thought we could
I know there'll be tears (There'll be tears)
But it's worth a broken heart
If I can't protect my energy, I gotta cut you off.”
Taking to TikTok, user @avorlmx shared a video, captioned: “This is definitely a song about Jesy disguised as a break-up song and I’m here for it.”
Quickly taking to the comments, it seemed other Mixers were in agreement.
“It makes me sad that Jesy basically wants nothing to do with them while they supported her so much after she left,” one person wrote.
A third added: “FACTS FACTS FACTS.”
Again, while Little Mix has remained tight-lipped about who the song is aimed at, Jade has recently compared writing their latest bop to being like “therapy” for the group in a recent interview.
“Cut You Off was written a couple of months ago in a session with Lost Boy and Lauren Aquilina. It was kind of like a therapy session writing Cut You Off actually,” she explained.
Perrie added: “You let it all out and it’s a safe space.”
Cut You Off will be released with their greatest hits album Between Us on 12th November.
This feud is far from over...
