“just woke up wbu ?” she captioned the post.

“The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard. There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process. So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I’m announcing I’m leaving Little Mix,” she announced to the world earlier in the year.

Here is how the girl group reacted to the news.

Liam Payne Says Jesy Nelson 'Zayn'd Out' of Little Mix

One Direction‘s Liam Payne is reacting to Little Mix‘s Jesy Nelson leaving the girl group.

“Someone Zayn‘d out,” Liam said when he was talking about the news, referring to Zayn Malik leaving One Direction.

He then continued, “No, no. Let’s be serious about this. It’s always sad at this moment in time when bands get into that sort of thing. Having been there myself, I felt that Zayn left for pretty much the same reason in a weird way.”

Jesy revealed the reason why she was leaving in a statement that shocked fans. You can read what Zayn said in 2015 when he left the group right here.

“I wish Jesy all the best. I wish the girls all the best for carrying on as a three,” Liam continued. “It’s a tough time and I do feel for them because everyone is watching in that little fishbowl at the moment and no one really understands what’s going on or how it feels for some people.”

In an odd connection, Zayn used to be engaged to another member of Little Mix.

Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons. We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time,” a statement from the band’s publicist reads.

She previously starred in a BBC documentary called Odd One Out, in which she opened up about abuse she has suffered at the hands of cyberbullies and its effects on her mental health.

We are wishing the best to Jesy Nelson at this time.

Prior to the performance of Harry Styles‘ “Falling,” as part of the Live Lounge series, Jesy – who has been candid about her battle with anxiety in the past – suffered a panic attack on-air that caused her to break into tears, unable to perform, as Perrie picked up the microphone and stepped in as bandmates comforted the star. The moment caused great concern on social media among fans.

“So my nerves got the better of me today and I had panic attack right before we were about to sing this for live lounge today and like a pro @perrieedwards jumped in for my part last minute and smashed it,” Jesy later wrote on her Instagram.

“This is what we originally did in rehearsals.” The girls also performed their latest single, “Holiday.”

We are sending our positive thoughts to Jesy!
