Liam Payne understands why Jesy Nelson left Little Mix
Little Mix just had major news for all its fans. One of its members, Jesy Nelson, departed from the band. The world was quite surprised by the news and had a lot to say about it. Among those are the singer and One Direction member Liam Payne.
Liam Payne says he understands Jesy Nelson’s decision and compares it to Zayn Malik’s exit from One Direction
Singer Liam Payne came on Tiktok Live and spoke about the incident that everyone was talking about.
He first joked about it and said, ‘Someone Zayn’d Out’.
This is referring to how Zayn Malik exited from the One Direction group in 2015 before the group decided to take a break to focus on their solo music careers. Zayn Malik shared that he didn’t think he could put any input when the group was making music and he didn’t like the music they created. In some interviews, he even added that he wasn’t friends with the rest of the band members.
Then he went on to clarify that it was a joke and shared:
No, no. Let’s be serious about this. It’s always sad at this moment in time when bands get into that sort of thing. Having been there myself, I felt that Zayn left for pretty much the same reason in a weird way.
The reason Jesy Nelson cited for leaving Little Mix was that she thought that she could not live up to the expectations that were set. Moreover, being in a band was affecting her mental health a lot so she decided it was time for her to leave. She wanted to focus more on herself and what made her truly happy.

Liam Payne also added that he was sending love and support to both Jesy Nelson and Little Mix because he understands it can be a difficult situation:
I wish Jesy all the best. I wish the girls all the best for carrying on as a three. It’s a tough time and I do feel for them because everyone is watching in that little fishbowl at the moment and no one really understands what’s going on or how it feels for some people. I’m sending lots of love to Little Mix.
The band Little Mix was also supportive of Jesy Nelson’s decision to leave
They also shared how they support Jesy but they will continue making music:
After an amazing 9 years together Jesy has made the decision to leave Little Mix. This is an incredibly sad time for all of us but we are fully supportive of Jesy. We love her very much and agree that it is so important that she does what is right for her mental health and well-being. We are still very much enjoying our Little Mix journey and the 3 of us are not ready for it to be over.
They also shared that they will continue making music as a band with the remaining three members left: Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
