Jesy Nelson has decided to leave Little Mix, the pop quartet of UK that had been leading the singles chart in Britain for 4 times since 2011 when they formed the group in The X Factor show.
Nelson made this announcement on Instagram where she expressed her gratitude to fellow bandmates as well as the fans. She also stated that being in Little Mix has become detrimental to her mental health. She is faced with constant pressure to be in the group of girls and live up to people’s expectations which is difficult. Everybody must choose to take care of themselves first before anything else. As a result, she is quitting the Little Mix to focus on herself.
