Jesy Nelson has worked hard to move on from the hor**fic trolling ordeal which left her feeling sui***l, but admitted she’ll never be in a place where she “absolutely loves” herself.
The Little Mix star opened up about how the nasty comments affected her in her award-winning documentary Odd One Out. But in a new interview with Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine, Jesy revealed she’s done her utmost to move on from the experience, and is now “100 per cent better” than she once was.
“Honestly, I didn’t like one thing about myself,” she said “I will never lie and say I absolutely love myself now. There are still things I’m working on. (But) I am 100 per cent better than I was before.”
Jesy also explained that she wanted to make the documentary to help anybody else keen to turn a “s**t experience into a positive one”. However, she was terrified that being so vulnerable would lead to her getting even more nasty comments from trolls.
“I was s**tting myself,” she admitted. ” I thought it would make people troll me more and cause even more of a backlash… It’s been the complete opposite. I put myself in a really vulnerable place, but now I’m glad I did.”
The 28-year-old singer has also had the support of her boyfriend, reality star Chris Hughes, throughout the past few years. And of her other half, Jesy grinned: “He’s just a very positive person. Chris is in a world of his own.
He’s not normal. Everyone who meets him says, ‘I’ve never met anyone like him.’ It’s cute.
“I think, ‘I’d love to be in your head.’ There (are) no cares or worries. He’s just in Chris land.”
