JESY Nelson’s new man Lucien Laviscount previously dated her Little Mix bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
Leigh-Anne, now 30, briefly dated Lucien back in 2012, a year after she found fame on the X Factor alongside Jesy, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall.
She was pictured at the time snuggling up with the actor in a restaurant during a romantic date night.
Now the well-known ladies’ man is spending time with Jesy – leaving Little Mix fans gobsmacked.
Jesy announced her departure from Little Mix in December 2020 after nine years in the hugely successful girl group, who have sold more than 50 million records worldwide.
She blamed the toll that being in the band had taken on her mental health.
The split turned nasty after Jesy released Boyz, featuring US rapper Nicki Minaj, earlier this month.
Her accompanying music video prompted accusations of blackfishing – the practice of a non-black person trying to appear black.
Leigh-Anne and Jesy’s relationship came under scrutiny when “leaked” messages from Leigh-Anne allegedly accusing her of blackfishing were leaked online.
Jesy then responded to the claims in an Instagram live with Nicki Minaj, during which the rapper branded Leigh-Anne a bully and a “clown.”
Leigh-Anne, who recently became a mum to twins with fiance Andre Gray, broke down and cried at her birthday party as she stood up for herself after Minaj continued to tear into her, accusing her of having “fake selective outrage” and a “personal vendetta” against Jesy.
Jesy said she never intended to cause offence and denied using fake tan.
