Oh dear: Jesy Nelson and a group of her friends were branded ‘f***ing hoes’ by a woman on a night out at Chiltern Firehouse in a shock verbal attack, it has been revealed (Jesy is pictured on a night out in October)
A source told MailOnline of the night out: ‘Jesy was taken back when a friend she was out with become embroiled in a row after a random stranger branded them a ‘bunch of hoes’.
‘Whilst Jesy did not partake in the argument and remained dignified, she prioritised apologising to Chiltern Firehouse staff on behalf of both parties involved.
‘Her friend left immediately after the verbal abuse was hurled at the group but Jesy remained in the venue and continued her evening’.
Another source added: ‘Jesy is the victim of non stop abuse whether it’s online or outside. This girl verbally attacked Jesy who remained calm as she was enjoying a night out with friends.

‘She was understandably shaken up by the whole thing. Jesy then apologised to the owner on the girls behalf and continues to be welcomed back at Chiltern Firehouse.
‘Jesy has even done documentaries on her experience of being targeted and this is just one more experience she has to deal with. It is relentless at the moment.’
Jesy then apologised to staff for the commotion as she left the venue.
Pals close to Jesy told MailOnline the singer is ’embarrassed’ by the photographs and insists she’s ‘single’ – despite being spotted with on-off boyfriend Harry James last month.
Emily In Paris actor Lucien, 29, dated Leigh-Anne, 30, in 2012 before she settled down with fiancé Andre Gray, also 30, and welcomed twins this year.

A source said: ‘Jesy and Lucien met up on a night out after two friendship groups came together and took a rickshaw to the club but left separately.
‘She was letting her hair down on a Saturday night and is embarrassed her flirtation with Lucien has come to light – but there is nothing more between them.
‘Her relationship with Harry may have ended but they remain good friends and continue to work together and he’s now with a new partner. Jesy insists herself and Lucien didn’t kiss even though they looked close in the pictures.’
MailOnline contacted Jesy and Lucien’s representatives for comment at the time.
Jesy was photographed with Lucien after they dinned together at restaurant Yatay in London’s Soho before continuing their evening at Tabu nightclub.
The pair were seen in the back of a rickshaw where Jesy attempted to embrace Lucien, while he tried to keep his distance.
In one image, Jesy moved her lips closer to Lucien’s, but the pair didn’t kiss despite the star’s efforts.
MailOnline understands Jesy went back to her Essex home alone and herself and Lucien have no plans to meet up in the future.

Jesy and on-off boyfriend Harry were last pictured together in October – a month after they enjoyed a luxury holiday in Antigua.
The couple got together in 2017, splitting after 16 months but rekindled their romance in September.
Singer Jesy commented three flame emojis on Harry’s most recent Instagram post, which was shared on November 20.
Harry, who directed Jesy’s music video for Boyz, which features rapper Nicki Minaj, also photographed the ex-girl band star for her recent magazine cover shoots.

Jesy received a backlash from fans who accused of her ‘blackfishing’ due to her appearance in the video, while her ex-band mates including Leigh-Anne admitted to warning her about cultural appropriation during her time in Little Mix.
She later apologised for any offence caused and said she was ‘tanned’ following her break in Antigua with Harry.
Lucien will feature in the upcoming second series of Emily In Paris, which stars A-List actress and model Lily Collins, 32.
After appearing in an advert for retailer Marks & Spencer aged 10, Lucien bagged roles in Grange Hill, Coronation Street and Waterloo Road.
Jesy’s drunken flirtation with Lucien came a week after she last publicly showed affection towards Harry, who she still follows on Instagram.
The singer, who left Little Mix in December 2020, has dated a string of stars including Our Girl actor Sean Sagar, Love Island’s Chris Hughes, dancer Jordan Banjo, and she was previously engaged to Rixton frontman Jake Roche.
