LITTLE Mix’s Leigh-Ann Pinnock has been branded a “f***ing clown’ by Nicki Minaj over the Jesy Nelson ‘blackfish’ drama.
Furiously lashing out at Leigh-Anne, Nicki slammed the singer for “waiting until Jesy had parted” from Little Mix before speaking out about “blackfishing” – claiming that she was “jealous and insecure”.
She ranted: “When you try to bring someone down because you see them continuing to try and pursue their careers, you are a f***ing clown.
“And let me tell you, there’s a lot of women out here in the US that tan and get bigger lips.”

There were early warning signs of feud in the band.
In July 2020, Little Mix were seen leaving rehearsal studios looking extremely frosty with each other.
The girls had only just reunited after months apart due to the UK’s first and strictest lockdown, yet they didn’t seem too chuffed to be in each other’s company again.
Jesy looked seriously stony-faced as she waited for a car to collect her, while Jade appeared more than happy to keep her social distance as she stared at her phone.
At one point, the two girls were photographed speaking but neither had smiles on their faces.
Perrie, meanwhile, left the studio a good 15 minutes before her bandmates.

A source close to the band claims Little Mix’s management also warned her about it after she sported her hair in braids three years ago.
Leigh’s alleged leaked messages come after all three of the Little Mix girls unfollowed Jesy on Instagram at the weekend – as has the account belonging to Perrie’s dog Hatchi.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s older sister Sairah has weighed into her fallout with former Little Mix bandmate Jesy Nelson.
The 31-year-old shared an expletive post to her Instagram Stories which fans have interpreted to be about the Boyz songstress amid her blackfishing row.
According to The Mirror, soon after the release of Jesy’s debut solo single Sairah wrote on social media: “We must be some d**kheads”.
In light of the comment, a Little Mix fan took to Twitter and claimed the remark was aimed at Jesy, 30.
They penned: “They have a tight circle so they all p****d at Jesy. All posted about it.”
Following the furore, Sairah has thanked Little Mix fans for their outpouring of support towards her sister as she re-shared a callout to fans to stream and buy Leigh-Anne’s favourite Little Mix song, I Love You.
Jesy was born on June 14, 1991 and is an English singer.
Her ethnicity is white.
She was raised in Romford, East London, to parents John Nelson, a businessman, and Janis Nelson, a Police Community… Brinkwire Brief News.
