Little Mix on Jesy’s blackfishing: ❝We approached her about it.❞ | Stella magazine

In their cover issue of today's Telegraph's Stella magazine, Little Mix reveal that 
the group approached Jesy Nelson in a very friendly, educational manner 
about her blackfishing BEFORE she even left the band. 
Back in August, Jesy did an interview with The Guardian addressing the blackfishing controversy, 
where she said: I would never want to offend anyone, and that was really upsetting. 
I wasn’t aware that’s how people felt.❞ 
In early October, she doubled down on her comments in an interview with Vulture: "The whole time I was in Little Mix I never got any of that. And then I came out of [the band] and people all of a sudden were saying it." After that interview, Leigh-Ann Pinnock's people put it out there to press that Leigh-Anne DID in fact warn Jesy about the blackfishing before she left the band. So Jesy really thought she could get away with lying in multiple interviews thinking the girls would maintain a dignified silence. I guess they could only bite their tongue for so long, and even then they conducted themselves professionally when doing so. 

Although they appear to acknowledge their feud, the girls have decided to not participate in any mud slinging matches and have simply opted not to speak on it. Jesy on the other hand directly addressed it during her recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show. There's a saying that bad publicity is STILL publicity but in this case, this is the type of publicity that nobody wants.

I believe them when when Jesy left she’s the the one that unfollowed them and then with each interview a contradicting story. The girls had nothing bad to say about but stated they wish the best and she left saying she needed to heal with the mental strain she received from the industry only to be go solo 😕
