Jesy Nelson has shared a defiant message and hit back at her haters Instagram the release of her debut solo single sparked a huge backlash and a black-fishing row.
It comes after a turbulent few weeks for the star, who became embroiled in a spat with her former Little Mix bandmates.
Her single Boyz then failed to reach the top three in the charts, peaking at Number 4 in the first week of its release.
Shrugging off the drama, Jesy took to Instagram to tell her followers she was proud of her achievements as she urged her younger self – and her 8 million followers to ‘dream big and work hard.’
As part of her inspirational message, Jesy shared a string of photos including an adorable childhood photo and a snap of her now cosying up to rap superstar P Diddy to show how far she’s come.
Jesy, 30, also revealed secret WhatsApp messages she sent to her team while dreaming up ideas for her first single outside of Little Mix.
The texts read: “I think i’ve gone a bit mental. So don’t judge me here lol.
“So all my life I’ve been attracted to bad boys, naughty boys, anyone that looks like a little s*** basically lol.
“And I wanna write a song about why most girls are attracted to bad boys. I don’t know if this is mental,” she added follow by the laugh-cry emoji.
Jesy then asked ‘Is there anyway of somehow sampling this in a cool sexy girl way’ followed by a link to P Diddy’s hit Bad Boy for Life.
The suggestion, dated February 7, was later granted and Jesy even got to work directly with Diddy after he agreed to appear in her music video.
Reflecting on her journey to solo stardom so far, Jesy told herself: “Little Jesy would be really of you.”

“You get to decide how life goes for you”.”
After hitting Number 4 on the UK charts, Jesy also made her first appearance as a solo star across the pond charting at Number 86 on the Billboard 200.
