Jesy Nelson to appear on TV for first time after ‘blackfishing’ row

Jesy Nelson has confirmed she will appear on television for her first interview after a week of controversy.

The former Little Mix singer released her new single Boyz last week, featuring Nicki Minaj, which soon flew to the top of the charts.

Jesy left Little Mix due to mental health reasons however she came back in a stellar fashion to release her new single not long after her departure.

But the star has become embroiled in a controversy recently with people accusing her of blackfishing – the practice of a non-black person trying to appear black.

She also hooked up with Boyz pal Nicki Minaj, this time on Insta and listened to the rapper laying into ex-bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

Jesy is now set to perform Boyz on The Graham Norton Show and is said to be already rehearsing her dance moves for the programme.

An insider told The Sun : “She’s really giving it her all.

“Jesy is obviously aware of all the drama circulating around Boyz.

“It would be a lie to say it’s not tainted the release, but she’s still so proud with how far she has come.

“Graham is a safe pair of hands so she feels comfortable going on the show. After the past week it’s time to bring it back to the music.”

However the Little Mix drama has overshadowed the star’s solo debut with some Little Mix fans taking to Twitter saying they wouldn’t watch Jesy’s performance.

Leigh-Anne, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall have all unfollowed their former friend on Instagram, while Jesy only follows P.Diddy and Nicki Minaj, who she collaborated on Boyz with.

Jesy is said to be saddened at how things have turned out between her and her ex-bandmates.

An insider close to the Essex native has said Jesy feels the backlash is a “personal attack against her.”

The former X Factor star reportedly is upset at it becoming a “Little Mix vs Jesy storyline” and sees it as “a shame.

“What should have been a positive and happy celebration has been somewhat tainted by what has started to feel like a personal attack against her, a source told Metro.

Jesy left Little Mix last year citing mental health reasons.
