Oct 15, 2021

Leigh-Anne Pinnock has unfollowed US rapper Nicki Minaj on Instagram in the days following the Jesy Nelson "blackfishing" row.

Former Little Mix star Jesy teamed up with Nicki on her debut solo single Boyz, but was accused of blackfishing after its highly-anticipated release.

A social media influencer then claimed singer Leigh-Anne, 30, had accused Jesy, also 30, of blackfishing with a series of screenshots showing messages he claimed were sent by the star in his DMs.

It comes as a clip was unearthed of Leigh-Anne and Jesy sniping at each other back in the days of Little Mix.

During a live chat with her collaborator Jesy, Nicki hit out at Little Mix and Leigh-Anne over the controversy.

"Immediately that person has to wear a big red clown nose and big clown boots because you're a big f***ing clown," Nicki said.

"Sweetheart take them text messages and shove it up ur f***ing a**, because when you do clown s**t I gotta treat you and talk to you like you're a clown."

"It screams insecurity, it screams that you're jealous," the rapper continued.

"Only jealous people do things like this and now you just look like a big jealous bozo."

Leigh-Anne has unfollowed Nicki since.

It comes as singer Anne Marie, who collaborated with Little Mix on a song called Kiss My (Uh Oh) has reportedly unfollowed Jesy now, according to The Sun.

The publication claimed that the star "has made it clear where her allegiance lies” and has "unfollowed Jesy Nelson".

What's more, it's been reported that "Paloma Faith and MNEK have supported the group publicly since the argument erupted" too.

Jesy has spoken out against the blackfishing claims and publicly stated she is "very aware" she is a white British woman.

"I've never said that I wasn't," the singer continued. "But I mean, like, I love Black culture. I love Black music.

"That's all I know; it's what I grew up on," she added.
