LITTLE Mix’s famous pals have started to unfollow Jesy Nelson as the blackfishing row rumbles on.
Their good friend Anne Marie made the move after former bandmate Jesy went live on Instagram with Nicki Minaj and laughed at Leigh Anne Pinnock being called a “clown”.
Anne Marie appeared on the track Kiss My (Uh Oh) with the band, but has made it clear where her allegiance lies.
Meanwhile Paloma Faith and MNEK have supported the group publicly since the argument erupted.
Things turned sour between the group last week when Jesy released her debut single Boyz, featuring Nicki Minaj.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, is believed to have accused her of “blackfishing” — when a white person uses black culture to further their career or online presence.
In messages thought to have been sent from Leigh-Anne’s account to influencer No Hun and shared to his 341,000 followers via a live stream, the star wrote: “She blocked us. Cut us off. Horrible person.”
After No Hun asked his fans if he should make up a dance routine to Boyz, Leigh-Anne replied: “No. Do a video about her being a blackfish instead.”
The situation escalated further when Jesy went live with Nicki Minaj to address the blackfishing claims.
While Jesy did not address the Leigh-Anne situation directly, she laughed as Nicki ranted and savaged her former bandmate, and later thanked her for defending her.
She also insisted that she didn't mean to offend anybody – and her tan and curls are completely natural.

Later, Nicki took ANOTHER swipe at Leigh-Anne before quickly deleting it.
After the stream had ended, Nicki wrote on Instagram: "Ayo Jesy!! We got all Leigh jelly btchs akkin all messy #Boyzoutnow."
