Jessie J has shared the tragic news that she has sadly suffered a miscarriage.
The singer had been keeping her pregnancy secret and was gearing up to perform at her concert in Los Angeles Thursday night.
But in a tragic twist of fate, she was told there was no longer a heartbeat at her third scan, just one day before she was due to take to the stage.
The 33 year old former coach on The Voice shared her heartbreak with her Instagram followers, as she said only a day earlier she’d been laughing and joking with a friend, worrying how she’d conceal her news from fans.
“Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying ‘seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant’,” the star began her lengthy post. “By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…
“After going for my 3rd scan and being told there was no longer a heartbeat,” Jessie continued. “This morning. I feel like I have no control of my emotions. I may regret posting this. I may not. I actually don’t know.
“What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because Im avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.”
The brunette beauty also shared a raw and poignant selfie of her holding up pregnancy test that showed the word “negative”.
The star had been crying as she bravely made the decision to share her news with her followers.
She went on to say her soul “needs” to perform at her gig, and she’s determined to carry on after only doing two shows in two years.
“I know some people will be thinking she should just cancel it,” Jessie carried on. “But in this moment I have clarity on one thing. I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self love therapy, that hasn’t ever changed and I have to process this my way.
“I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. I deserve that. I want to be as myself as I can be in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did it’s best.”
The star also revealed she’d made the decision to have a baby “on her own” because it’s “all” she’s “ever wanted and life is short”.
“To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again,” the TV personality said, going on to admit she’s still “in shock” and the “sadness is overwhelming”.
“But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok,” Jessie added.
