On the eve of a performance in Los Angeles, Jessie J took to Instagram to reveal she has suffered a miscarriage. She had not told the world she was pregnant yet and had decided to have a baby on her own as “it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short.”

On social media she shared a photo of herself with a test from the evening she found out of her pregnancy followed by a quote by Seyda Noir in another slide.

“Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying “seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant”,” Jessie J wrote in the caption. “By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…”

The singer revealed that she had gone in for her third scan when it was discovered the foetus no longer had a heartbeat. The 33-year-old told fans that she still plans to perform.

“What I do know is that I want to sing tonight,” she continued. “Not because Im avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.

“I have done 2 shows in 2 years and my soul needs it. Even more today. I know some people will be thinking she should just cancel it. But in this moment I have clarity on one thing. I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self love therapy, that hasn’t ever changed and I have to process this my way.

“I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. I deserve that. I want to be as myself as I can be in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did it’s best.

“I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer.”

Just last week Whitney Port revealed she had suffered a miscarriage. Chrissy Teigen has also been vocal about her own experience with multiple miscarriages. In October 2020 she lost her baby, later named Jack, roughly halfway through term.

Jessie J continued in the caption, “I also know millions of women all over the world have felt this pain and way worse. I feel connected to those of you I know and those of you I don’t. It’s the loneliest feeling in the world.”

We’re thinking of you, Jessie.
