Nicki Minaj defended Jesy Nelson in an explosive Instagram Live tonight amid the blackfishing allegations.
Last Friday, Jesy, 30, released the music video for her new single, Boyz, but was quickly accused of blackfishing, a term that refers to someone who changes their appearance to appear Black or racially ambiguous.
However, she has vehemently denied this and insisted she merely ‘loves Black culture’.
On Monday night, Jesy and Nicki sat down for an Instagram Live together where Nicki appeared to mention DMs about the drama that were allegedly sent from Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s Instagram account.
In them, Leigh-Anne is alleged to have accused Jesy of blocking the rest of Little Mix on social media.
Addressing the messages, Nicki said: ‘As soon as people can’t get a bag with you they seem to want to stop your bag.
‘If I was rocking with you for 10 years and there was something so horrible about you… and then as soon as we part ways I was like texting [about] you…
Referring to the messages allegedly sent from Leigh-Anne’s account, Nicki added: ‘Sweetheart, take them messages and shove them up your a*s.
‘Don’t come out to try and ruin anyone, let her enjoy this time. Print them text messages out, buss that a*s open and shove it up your motherf*****g a*s.
‘If you want a solo career baby girl go ahead and say that. You don’t have to attack someone else, if that’s how you felt, why [was] you kiki’ing with her for 10 years?
‘It screams insecurity, it screams that you’re jealous. And now you just look like a big jealous bozo.’
Jesy, who at points laughed at Nicki’s scathing takedown, said after the rant: ‘Thank you babe, honestly that means a lot. While we’re on this subject, I just want to say my intention was never meant to offend people of colour with this song.
‘I just wanted to celebrate that, that era of music because it’s what I love.
‘Genuinely it actually does really hurt me that I may have offended people and hurt people’s feelings just by celebrating something I love.’
Explaining her deep tan, Jesy revealed: ‘When I was in the [Boyz] video with you, I was in Antigua before that for three weeks.’
The singer then claimed: ‘Leigh-Anne said to me in the group, “Are you sure you’re not mixed race because you tan so well”.
‘My hair is naturally curly, I get it from my dad.’
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Leigh-Anne’s reps for comment.
