The ex-Little Mix singer was harassed after her ex-girlfriend Leigh-Anne Pinnock appeared to accuse her of trying to get darker skin tone in her Boyz video.
A source close to the group said: “Everything is getting a bit too much.
“The last thing she wanted was to be involved in a Little Mix vs Jesy feud. The girls have been through a lot together and she truly believes that anyone can coexist in the industry without the war of words. “
Leigh-Anne’s fiance Andre Gray appeared to refer to the argument in a speech at her 30th birthday party on Saturday. He said, “If you try to disrespect my little mother, my wife, my fiancee and my children, there will be a problem. “
The source added: “Jesy’s team is trying to protect her from negative trolls. Comments about “disrespect” only amplify matters. Everyone needs to take a step back. “
Jesy, 30, who launched a solo career, appeared in a BBC documentary about online trolls.
She said comments about her appearance made her so miserable that she wanted to die.
Leigh-Anne, who is Métis and had twins in August, stood up for her “character” at Saturday’s party, telling her friends, “I’m so proud of everything I’ve accomplished. “
Rapper Nicki Minaj, who appears in Jesy’s debut single Boyz, accused Leigh-Anne and her classmates Jade Thirwall and Perrie Edwards of trying to ruin Jesy’s solo career.
Leigh-Anne recently appeared to address the ‘feud’ between her and Jesy as she gave an emotional speech at her 30th birthday party this weekend.
She said: “I am 30 years old. I know my character, you know my character, everyone who meets me knows my fucking character – and that’s all I care about.
“I am so proud of everything I have accomplished. The most beautiful fiancé, who still fascinates me even after five years. I love you. And the two most beautiful perfect babies. All I stand for, all I fight for is for them [the twins].
“I will never stop. I have found my voice now and will continue to use it. Tonight we celebrate life, best friends and amazing family. I love you all. “
