Perry Edwards, Jade Thurlwall, and Lee Ann Pinnock are said to have held meetings to distance themselves from Little Mix
Little Mix may be on the verge of splitting after Jesy Nelson took time away from the group for « medical reasons ».
Pop stars could all go solo next year, after it was reported that Perry Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, and Lee Anne Pinnock were all in secret talks to launch separate careers when their current deal expired.
There have been concerns about the future of 29-year-old Jesse after she has missed several appearances with the band in recent weeks, including the final of their BBC One’s The Search Talents and hosting them at the MTV Europe Music Awards..
Amid growing concern from fans, a spokesperson for the group confirmed their temporary departure in a statement.
« We will not issue any additional comments at this time and we ask the media to respect their privacy at this time.
Now it looks like the other three will also be looking to spend time apart, as The Sun reports that they have all met new agents, managers, and CEOs on how to approach their individual jobs.
A source said Perrie and Jade, both 27, are researching new music projects while 29-year-old Leigh-Anne discusses TV ideas.
“The girls have been open and friendly with each other and with the current management team,” said a publishing source.
“They have begun discussions with some potential managers and agents about what their individual careers might look like.
The source added that this will not be the end of Little Mix but an opportunity for all of them to explore how far away the future could be from the group..
As the BBC’s talent show winners approach with the band in April of next year, the source said that even if the coronavirus pandemic is delayed, they will « complete it ».
The source added: « This will happen either with or without Jesse, who spends some time outside as long as she feels she needs or wants it. ».
The group uses Take That as their inspiration for this « as each member gets to drift off at times and work on their own projects, but get together at other times to tour and work as a group again.
The source is said to have stressed that « there is no disagreement between them whatsoever » and that they all « get on well with great friends. ».
Little Mix has been one of the biggest pop acts since it was formed on The X Factor in 2011.
They have since produced six albums and six World Tour, selling over 50 million records in the process and recording four singles..
