JESY Nelson has revealed she is no longer in contact with her Little Mix bandmates.
The 30-year-old left the chart-topping girl band in December after nine years, saying being in the group took a toll on her mental health.
While she admits Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards were “like sisters”, the singer admitted they all “need time”.
When asked in a new interview with The Guardian if she still speaks to the girls, she replied: “No, not as much. Not now. I think we all need time. It’s a big thing that’s happened.”
She does however have nothing but well wishes for the group and believes they will continue once Leigh-Anne and Perrie have their babies.
Jesy said: “I reckon they’ll look after their babies, go off and do their own things for a while, then make a comeback together.
“I think they’re just as sick as a three. They’re still doing it for girl power. I still love them to pieces. They were like my sisters.”
Since leaving the band Jesy signed a solo record deal with Polydor Records and her debut single will arrive in the autumn.
Jesy’s latest comments come as The Sun exclusively revealed how she is getting ready to crack the US – a country that Little Mix failed in.
The plan includes fighting to get her on one of the biggest global stages.
The Sun revealed that ten years after shooting to fame on The X Factor, she is in talks to appear at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York next month for the most significant performance of her career so far.
Her new US label, Republic Records, is pushing for Jesy to sing her debut single Boyz with Nicki Minaj at the ceremony, which also features Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo and Camila Cabello.
