Leigh Anne Pinnock

Little Mix star Jesy Nelson has revealed that she attempted suicide in 2013 after constant trolling about her appearance.

The X-Factor winner explained how the pressure and consistent negative comments caught up with her one night in 2013 and she took "as many tablets as I could" to escape it.

Her then-boyfriend realised what Jesy had tried to do and immediately called an ambulance, where Jesy was taken to hospital for treatment.

Her new BBC documentary, Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out, she said; "I was sat in bed crying, thinking, 'This is never going to go, I'm going to feel sad for the rest of my life, so what is the point in being here?'

"The only way I can describe the pain is like constantly being heartbroken. I remember going to the kitchen and I just took as many tablets as I could. Then my ex, who was with me at the time, he woke up and was like, 'why are you crying?' I kept saying, 'I just want to die'."

Jesy deleted Twitter since the incident, which she found was a huge breeding ground for ruthlessly vile comments. The 28-year-old has faced criticism for everything you can possibly think of.

Jesy told her family and close friends, as well as the rest of Little Mix, what had happened after her suicide attempt six years ago.

In the BBC documentary, which will be available on the iPlayer and will air on BBC One from 12 September, she recalled how the bullying began almost straight away after the X Factor experience;

"I had about 101 Facebook messages in my inbox, and the first one that came up was from some random man, saying: 'You are the ugliest thing I've seen in my life, you do not deserve to be in this girl band. You deserve to die'."

Jesy adds: "The whole world had an opinion on me and they weren't good ones. From the minute those comments started it became one of the worst times of my life."

"I wasn't known as one of the singers from Little Mix. I was always known as 'the fat, ugly one'. It literally consumed every part of me."

The star found fame on X Factor in 2011 when she was paired with Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock to form a girl group.

Jesy is hoping that her new documentary will shed light on the impact of social media trolls and mental health.  If this story has affected you, please call Samaritans on their hotline: (01) 671 0071

According to reports, Leigh-Anne and a female friend were in the restaurant following a night out in Mayfair's Drama nightclub when an altercation took place between themselves and a male diner.

Speaking to Leigh-Anne and her friend, the man reportedly said: "If my girlfriend was here, you would both feel really intimidated’."

It has been established that the women contradicted this remark in a move which appeared to aggravate the diner, with a source saying: "And then he said something like ‘shut up’ to Leigh-Anne’s friend."

"Leigh-Anne turned around and said, ‘Don’t say that to her’ or ‘don’t be rude’ and he walked around the table and leant into her and gave her a clean slap on the face," the source added.

The Little Mix singer was said to have initially laughed off the assault before becoming upset and 'hysterically crying'.

Speaking to The Standard, a spokesperson for The Met confirmed that an incident had indeed taken place in recent weeks.

"Police were called on Monday, 28 November at around 04:50 hours by a woman who stated that a man had threatened to assault her and had assaulted another woman she was with at a restaurant at Great Russell Street, WC1."

"The woman did not require hospital treatment. The suspect made off prior to police arrival. Officers conducted a search of the area and did not locate the suspect."

Leigh-Anne has yet to make a public statement regarding the matter.

When you sing on a track called Shout Out To My Ex, you’d think you’d be prepared to answer questions about, well, your ex.

But apparently for Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock, this is not the case.

During a recent interview with Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp, the 25-year-old pop star grew agitated and stormed out of the studio after being asked if the band needed to clear the song with their former flames.

“If you write a song like this, do you have to speak to all exs?,” asked Roman.

While all the girls had a notably awkward response, Leigh-Anne whispered something to Perrie Edwards before turning to the DJ to tell him his question was “inappropriate”.

Roman was quick to apologise and attempted to move forward with the conversation but the singer interrupted him and began ranting about being quizzed about her love life.

She said: “It just gets on my nerves when people ask things like that.  We’re not here to talk about exs.”

“I know the song is called that, but talk about how it’s a positive thing.  Do you know what I mean?”

Leigh-Anne then told her bandmates to continue the interview without her, before walking out of the studio while spurting curse words.

Perrie was quick to cover for her friend by explaining that Leigh-Anne had been “having a bad day”.

Thankfully for the mortified DJ the whole thing was a prank as shortly after Leigh-Anne's exit, a full choir invaded the studio to sing Uptown Funk with the girls.

Classic!

They dated for more than three years, with many friends and family suspecting that an engagement was on the cards. 

However, it has now been revealed that Leigh-Anne Pinnock has secretly split from her boyfriend.

She had been dating footballer Jordan Kiffin since early 2013, but The Mirror says she is now very much single. 

A source close to the pair exclusively told Mirror Celeb: "They have been having problems for a while and they decided to finally end their relationship."

A second source added: "Yes they have split. It happened a while ago. They grew apart. Leigh has been on the tour for months now, and before that was travelling worldwide with promo for the record.

"All the time apart as just taken its toll. They decided to split – there is no fall out and they are both still friends, and will remain so. They genuinely get on very well."

The 24-year-old star has unfollowed Jordan from her Instagram account. She had also been wearing his initials on a much-loved necklace for some time – a habit which has now ceased. 

The pair briefly split a year ago, but afterwards she told fans that things were 'blown out of proportion'.

Perry Edwards, of course, split from Zayn Malik last year and remains single. Jesy Nelson got engaged last summer to Rixton lead singer Jake Roche. Finally, Jade Thirlwall is seeing The Struts rocker Jed Elliot.
