The three existing members of Little Mix have unfollowed ex-bandmate Jesy Nelson on Instagram – a day after she released her debut solo single.
Jesy, 30, who left the girl group last December due to her mental health, unveiled her single Boyz featuring Nicki Minaj and Diddy on Friday – yet remaining Little Mix trio Leigh-Anne Pinncock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall have made no reference to it.
Instead, they appear to have unfollowed Jesy; as has Perrie’s dog’s Instagram account.

The official Little Mix account still follows Jesy, however.
Jesy recently wiped her entire Instagram page, ahead of her solo career launch. She only follows two people – collaborators Diddy and Minaj.
MailOnline has approached reps for comment.
Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie, meanwhile, have been promoting their own new music on social media.
Taking to Instagram to push the sale of a new signed record, the band urged fans to get their hands on a limited edition record.

They wrote on social media with a snap of the the record: ‘The signed Between Us records are only live for a few more hours.’
While Jesy has opened up about the lack of contact she has had with the band since leaving, Little Mix have remained tight-lipped over her departure.
Jesy‘s long-awaited debut solo single finally dropped on Friday morning alongside an action-packed music video that saw the singer showcase her dance moves and collaborate with two of the industry’s biggest rappers.
Another music heavyweight making an appearance was Nicki Minaj – who previously collaborated with Little Mix on the 2018 song Woman Like Me.

In Jesy’s music video – which was a direct copy of Diddy’s 2001 video – she spoofed the moment Diddy is confronted by Ben Stiller – who jokes about the rapper’s many monikers – Puff Daddy, P Diddy and Sean Combs.
For Jesy’s version, Diddy called the singer ‘Jeezy, Jesy, Little Mix, whatever y’all calling yourself these days’, poking fun at her controversial departure from Little Mix in December.
Elsewhere in the video – which was filrmed in Edgeware north London – Jesy stripped down to a bikini and snacked on sushi before slipping into a tiny tennis skirt and chunky platform heels.
Jesy previously described the song as an ‘in your face’ club anthem that could divide fans’ opinion.
Success: It proved to be an overwhelming hit online, with fans taking to Twitter after the song dropped to pen: ‘Jesy Nelson killing the BOYZ with so many outfits. Plus her vocals and adlibs and Nicki Minaj’s Rap part made the whole MV a masterpiece!’
‘You’re either going to love it or you’re going to hate it and I would rather that than people be like, ‘Meh, okay…”, she told Noctis XXI Magazine.
Yet it proved to be an overwhelming hit online, with fans taking to Twitter after the song dropped to pen: ‘and after all, Jesy was feeling so good and so happy. So proud of her. This is the best debut i ever seen’;
‘Jesy Nelson killing the BOYZ with so many outfits. Plus her vocals and adlibs and Nicki Minaj’s Rap part made the whole MV a masterpiece!’.
It comes after the singer, 30, who officially quit Little Mix in December, revealed that she hasn’t spoken to her former bandmates in a year.
The vocalist commanded the charts with Leigh-Anne, Jade and Perrie for nine years after finding fame on X Factor in 2011, however Jesy left the group amid growing strain on her mental health.
Speaking to Glamour Magazine, the star, who is set to release her debut solo single Boyz on Friday, revealed that there is a ‘distance’ between herself and the trio which she confessed is ‘weird’ given their proximity for nearly a decade.
She said: ‘I haven’t spoken to the girls. It is weird because for so many years we were as close as sisters, together every hour of the day for weeks, sharing beds, laughing, crying just 24/7 the four of us together and then… Nothing.’
Jesy announced her departure from the group one year after filming a BBC documentary Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out, in which she revealed she had attempted to take her own life after years of relentless trolling and abuse.
While she has spoken now about her relief at being free of comparisons from the other girls, Little Mix have continued as a threesome.
