Nicki Minaj has doubled down on her feud with Leigh-Anne Pinnock as she accused the Little Mix singer of encouraging her fans to ‘bully’ Jesy Nelson.


The explosive drama began on Monday night, when Nicki appeared on an Instagram Live video with Jesy to promote her debut solo single Boyz, which the rapper features on.

Emotions were running high before the chat even started, as TikTok user NoHun claimed to have received direct messages from Leigh-Anne, in which she allegedly accused Jesy of appropriating Black culture, also called blackfishing, in her music video for Boyz.

The DMs also stated that Jesy had “cut off” her Little Mix bandmates and the sender purporting to be Leigh-Anne said her former co-star was “horrible”.

It wasn’t long before Nicki pounced on the allegations during the Instagram Live chat, and as she tore into Leigh-Anne, Jesy did little to defend her former friend, and sat laughing at the rapper’s comments instead.

The Pound the Alarm hitmaker then took to Twitter after the Instagram chat, and fueled the feud between her and Leigh-Anne, by accusing the new mum of encouraging Little Mix fans to “bully” Jesy after she left the group.

“JeLeigh btchs actin real messy. ~ if you know someone has been suicidal from bullying in the past, why try to get a bunch of ppl to bully them again about smthng else, on an even bigger scale?” Nicki fired.

“Shame on you – that’s rlly sad. You don’t know what ppl can deal with. Mental Health,” the rapper added.

Leigh-Anne has yet to comment on the allegations, but simply shared a photo of her, Perrie and Jade on Twitter.

Nicki has continued to tweet accusations leveled at Leigh-Anne, and said the 30-year-old star shouldn’t “call things out” after she “made millions” with Jesy during her time in Little Mix.

“Don’t call things out when they benefit your personal vendetta to ppl. Call them out immediately once you see it chile. Don’t wait a decade after you’ve made millions with the person,” the Anaconda hitmaker fired.

During the astonishing rant on Instagram, Nicki called Leigh-Anne a "f***ing clown" as she shot down any suggestion Jesy was blackfishing in her new video.

“When you try to bring someone down because you see them continuing to try and pursue their careers, you are a f***ing clown. And let me tell you, there's a lot of women out here in the US that tan and get bigger lips,” she raged.

Jesy simply nodded in agreement and laughed during Nicki’s rant, and later thanked her for defending her.
