The Little Mix members are going solo now that Jesy Nelson is taking extended time off due to unknown medical reasons. Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have each been involved in secret plans to go solo when their current deal ends according to an insider.
Little Mix Members Going Solo
The members have been meeting with new managers, agents, and industry bosses in private. Jesy is also in talks over plans for her own solo career once she has recovered. Some of the girls might end up taking on solo projects with their current management team.
Jesy, 29, has been absent from the group for two weeks. She pulled out of the final of their BBC TV show The Search plus their hosting slot on the MTV European Music Awards. Meanwhile Perrie and Jade, both 27, are sticking with music while 29-year-old Leigh-Anne is looking at TV ideas.
The girls are talking about trying to emulate Take That, where each member has been able to leave the group to work individually and then come back together as a group. The source also pointed out that the news doesn’t spell the end for the band.
The source explained: “The girls have been open and honest with each other, and with their current management team. They have started discussions with some prospective managers and agents about what their solo careers might look like. They still have a tour scheduled to start in April next year, and even if that is delayed because of Covid, as is quite likely, they will still complete it. That will happen either with or without Jesy, who is taking some time out for as long as she feels she needs or wants to. They love the band and all that they’ve achieved, and still get on very well as great friends. There is absolutely no fall-out between them and they’re all supportive of each other doing new things. It’s an exciting time.”
