Jesy left around Christmas time, and admitted in a recent interview that she hasn't spoken to the girls since.

After she released the music video for her debut solo single Boyz, she was accused of blackfishing.

The term is used when someone changes their appearance to look like they have black heritage or are racially ambiguous.

It wasn't long after this that a private DM Leigh-Anne Pinnock allegedly sent about Jesy was leaked online.

She allegedly called her a, 'horrible person,' and accused her of, 'blackfishing.'

Now, in a new interview with Stella Magazine, the girls are having their say.

Private conversations

As quoted by MailOnline, Jade said, 'We don't want to talk about the video, or be critical, but one thing we will clarify regarding the blackfishing situation is that Jesy was approached by the group in a very friendly, educational manner.'

Leigh-Anne added, 'Capitalising on aspects of blackness without having to endure the daily realities of the black experience is problematic and harmful to people of colour.'

'We think it's absolutely not OK to use harmful stereotypes.'

'There's so much to say on that subject that it's hard to sum up in a sound bite,' she concluded.

Meanwhile, Jesy's Boyz collaborator Nicki Minaj slammed the Little Mix girls in an Instagram live with Jesy.

"When people part ways, go about your fu**ing business," Nicki weighed in.
