Jessie J reveals she has suffered a miscarriage after deciding to have a baby on her own
Jessie J has confirmed she suffered a miscarriage.
The heartbroken singer revealed she decided to have a baby on her own.
She opened up about the harrowing loss on her Instagram.
"Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying “seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant”.
"By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…" she shared.
Jessie J said she found out there was no longer a heartbeat after her third scan.
The singer is due to perform tonight and said she feels like it is the right thing to do.
"What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because I'm avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me."

The Domino singer said she wants to be honest about this harrowing experience. She wants to share how she's feeling and not hide away from it.
"I want to be as myself as I can be in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did its best."
"I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer," she shared.
She said all she has ever wanted was to become a mother.
"I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again."
The singer said she is still in shock and the "sadness is overwhelming".
She continued, "I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok."
"I also know millions of women all over the world have felt this pain and way worse. I feel connected to those of you I know and those of you I don’t," she added.
"It’s the loneliest feeling in the world," the Price Tag singer said.
