Perrie Edwards tried to quit band two years ago
PERRIE EDWARDS tried to quit LITTLE MIX two years ago but decided to stay in the group for one final tour.
During a sit-down meeting, their Confetti Tour – due to take place in 2020 but later delayed to 2022 – was discussed and Perrie said she wanted to hit the road with the girls one last time.
However, in early October 2020 the group hit another bump when Jesy Nelson called a meeting telling the girls she couldn’t continue – weeks before she announced her exit in December.
Following the recording of the video for their No1 hit Sweet Melody, Perrie, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall met with their management team after filming an episode of their BBC show The Search, where they talked about continuing as a three.
An insider said: “This idea that everyone was happy in the band prior to Jesy leaving is a smokescreen.
“Perrie actually told the band she was thinking about leaving in 2019 which prompted a sit down with management.
