Jessie J interrupted her show in Los Angeles to talk about a tragic loss: the miscarriage she suffered a few days earlier.
On Wednesday November 24, the 33-year-old British pop star announced on Instagram that she had fallen pregnant after deciding to have a baby on her own. She said that a day earlier she had had her third ultrasound and was told that her baby was no longer having a heartbeat. On Wednesday night, Jessie opened up about her miscarriage in an emotional performance during her intimate acoustic show at the Hotel Cafe music bar in Los Angeles, as seen in a video posted by TMZ.
“I decided to have a baby on my own,” she said in tears, “and then miraculously it worked for a little while. And yesterday, yeah, yesterday was fucking shit.”
In 2018, Jessie spoke at a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London about her battle with infertility, saying that four years ago she had been told she couldn’t have children. “When the doctor told me, my reaction was, ‘Oh god damn nooooooon,’” Jessie sang at the time, to the applause of the crowd. She also received support from her then-boyfriend Channing tatum.
