‘We’ll be like The Rolling Stones’: Little Mix vow to keep going for ’50 years’ despite split claims… as its revealed Jesy Nelson scooped £3m pay cheque before leaving the group
Little Mix have continued to defy the split rumours surrounding them.
The group, comprising Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, appeared on Capital Breakfast on Wednesday to discuss their greatest hits album and to vow to keep going for years ‘like The Rolling Stones’.
The chat comes after Jesy Nelson left the group last December, with it now coming to light that she scooped her £3million pay cheque before departing to go solo.
Nope: Little Mix have continued to defy the split rumours surrounding them
Since Jesy’s departure, Little Mix have been dogged with rumours of a split or hiatus which radio star Sonny Jay asked about in their latest appearance.
Perrie said: ‘I think no matter what Little Mix do, whether we venture out individually, whatever we do, Little Mix is forever, like Jade said…
‘We’ll always stick together, we’ll always tour, we’ll always do things together as a group, because, Little Mix is just, it’s fire…
‘And I hate to say it, what we have is something special and we know that, and we know that Little Mix as the three of us is so so strong, so we never want that to be over, never ever ever’.

Jade then interjected to push: ‘You know like the Rolling Stones, how they’re still going… Yeah honestly! I want people to be sick of us in 50 year’s time’.
Roman Kemp pushed that the girls are ‘best friends and always in touch’, which they all agreed with during the candid chat on the show.
Their appearance on the show comes after it was revealed through Companies House documents that Jesy – and the other girls – were paid £1,901,304 through Little Mix’s touring money, Eternal Magic Touring.
She also received £1,201,390 from Eternal Dance Media, which handles their music and advertising.

The Sun revealed that the band bought Jesy out on 28 July, as documents that were made public on Wednesday revealed.
Jesy’s departure was attributed to the strains being in a girl band put on her mental health, which she has documented in public, including revealing a suicide attempt.
Upon the release of her first single Bad Boyz, she was hit with allegations of ‘Blackfishing’, a row in which Leigh-Anne was soon in embroiled.
Last month, Jesy admitted it’s ‘sad’ she doesn’t speak to Little Mix anymore.

The singer told Graham Norton there’s ‘no bad blood’ between herself and ex-bandmates after the blackfishing controversy over her Boyz music video.
Jesy said she ‘loved’ her time with Little Mix and ‘wishes them all the best,’ and said that after releasing her first solo single she’s hoping to record an album in 2022.
Asked about her departure from Little Mix, Jesy said: ‘We’re not talking any more. It is sad but honestly there is no bad blood from my side, and I still love them to pieces and genuinely wish them all the best.
‘I loved my time with them, and we’ve got the most incredible memories together, but it’s just one of those things which needs to take time, so who knows.
‘To me they are still the sickest girl band in the world.’
