Jessie J has shared some heartbreaking pregnancy loss news.
The singer, who confirmed her split from Max Pham last month, took to Instagram on Wednesday night to inform her fans she had sadly suffered a miscarriage.
Jessie, 33, told her 10.4 million followers she had lost her baby ahead of her gig in L.A on Wednesday, after discovering there was no longer a heartbeat hours earlier.
Sharing a snap of herself holding a positive pregnancy test and a second image of a quote, the British star bravely admitted she would still take to the stage in attempt to help her through the grief.

"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'," Jessie began the emotional caption with.
"By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…"
She then went on to explain that after going for her 3rd scan, she was sadly told there was no longer a heartbeat.
After musing that she may regret sharing the upsetting news online, she confirmed she would still be performing later in the evening.
The singer also shared an emotional quote with her fans
"What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because I'm avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me," she admitted.
Jessie continued to explain that she has only done two shows in two years and her "soul needs it", even though she knows some will think she should cancel her upcoming performance.
She continued: "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."
Jessie is still bravely planning to perform in L.A later tonight
"I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer."
Last month, via a candid Instagram Q&A, Jessie revealed to her fans she and former boyfriend Max Pham had split after seven months of dating.
The singer insisted "nothing dramatic" caused the break up, and stressed that both parties "were happy" following their decision to part ways.
In her caption on Wednesday night, Jessie revealed she had decided to have a baby alone as becoming a mum is all she has ever wanted.

"I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short," she admitted.
"To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again."
Jessie concluded her moving post confessing that the "sadness is overwhelming" but adding: "I know I am strong and i will be ok."
