Nicki Minaj has taken another swipe at Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock after targeting the singer in an Instagram Live with Jesy Nelson.
The 38-year-old rapper protested the response to Jesse’s debut single, Boyz, alleging she was ‘blackfishing’.
He labeled Leigh-Anne a “clown” and claimed that he was jealous of Jesse’s solo success.
It came after influencer No Hun posted a series of private messages allegedly sent by the new mother, asking her to “do a video”. [Jesy] Being a Blackfish”.
After the stream ended, Nikki wrote on Instagram: “Ayo Jessie!! We’ve got all Leigh Jelly btchs akin all messy #Boyzoutnow.”
She said: “You know all this love is chili.”
Soon after he swapped Leigh’s name for the word ‘yeh’, but the original comment had already been viewed thousands of times.
During their livestream, Jesse laughed while Nikki slammed Leigh-Anne over the “leaked messages”.
Blackfishing is a term used when a white person uses black culture and aesthetics to their advantage.
The DM said Jesse “blocked and cut” Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall.
Posting to her Instagram Story, Nikki wrote ahead of Insta Live: “Jessie, we got all these Jelly Beach actin real messi” — and as the evening went on, she didn’t hold back.
Furiously hitting out at Leigh-Anne, Nicki reprimanded the singer for “waiting until Jesse is separated” from Little Mix before speaking out – claiming she was “jealous and insecure”.
She said: “When you try to put someone down because you see that they are constantly trying and advancing their career, you are a clown. And let me tell you, there are a lot of people in America. There are women who are taut and get bigger lips.
“As long as you’re not hurting anyone, you should be able to embrace your body, your makeup.”
Nodding with Jesse, Nikki continued: “If you’ve ever had business with someone, you send a text message when they try and do something else, try to end them – you Already finished your f***ing yourself. You’re not going anywhere because your heart isn’t right.”
Discussing the “hate trains” of people wanting to end Jesse’s career, he continued: “What we won’t have is someone to waste and people and influencers to talk badly about this girl.” To send a text message.
“Unless someone is pretending they’re a race they’re not and lying, sweetheart, text them and elevate them above your f***ing a** because when you clown are**t i want to talk to you and talk to you like you’re a clown.
“You don’t even have to try to ruin anyone – you’re in this women’s group and don’t talk about it for 10 years and now you see she has a video coming out with Diddy? Those Print the texts eject messages and top them up a**.
“If you want a solo career, just say it – you can go out and do your music, you don’t have to attack anyone else. It screams insecurity, you are jealous – only jealous people Do things like this, and now you look like one big jealous burden.”
Jesse did not directly address Leigh-Anne’s situation, but she laughed at Nikki’s giggle, and later thanked her for defending her.
She also insisted that she didn’t mean to offend anyone—and that her tan and curls are completely natural.
