LITTLE Mix IGNORED former bandmate Jesy Nelson's solo music debut yesterday as they instead promoted their own music on Instagram.
The 30-year-old star released her much-anticipated collab with Nicki Minaj, Boyz, 10 months after she sensationally quit the girl group back in December.
But the band did not acknowledge her debut, with their official Instagram page instead sharing a link to their own website as they told followers: "The signed Between Us records are only live for a few more hours".
Meanwhile, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall both re-posted tweets about Little Mix's success to their Instagram Stories, with one reading: "Dropping hits like confetti, @LittleMix continue their winning streak with two singles in the Top 40 biggest songs of 2021 so far."
The second read: "@LittleMix have surpassed 6.5 billion views on YouTube, they are the fourth female group to achieve this."
Leigh-Anne Pinnock did not share the plugs, but posted a video of a poignant poem referencing racism to her Story.
Their decision to ignore Jesy's solo single comes after fans noticed that she did not publicly acknowledge Leigh-Anne and Perrie's baby arrivals back in August.
However, she did reference Little Mix in her new music video, which is a direct copy of Diddy's 2001 Bad Boys For Life hit.
Poking fun at her controversial departure from the group, Diddy makes a cameo in the video and jokes about his many past names – including Puff Daddy, P Diddy, and Sean Combs.
Addressing Jesy, he quips: "Jeezy, Jesy, Little Mix, whatever y'all calling yourself these days."
Ahead of its release, Jesy admitted that there is a "distance" between herself and her former bandmates – adding that it was "weird" after they spent nine years in each other's pockets after shooting to fame on The X Factor.
She told Glamour at the time: "I haven't spoken to the girls. It is weird because for so many years we were as close as sisters, together every hour of the day for weeks, sharing beds, laughing, crying just 24/7 the four of us together and then nothing."
Jesy quit the group due to the "emotional toll" it took on her mental health, speaking openly about her battle with relentless trolling and weight insecurities in the past.
