We send our sincere sympathies to her and her angel.
Jessie J broke the terrible news on Instagram on Wednesday, just hours before she was scheduled to perform at The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles.
The powerhouse vocalist began her statement with a broken heart emoji alongside a photo of her holding up a positive pregnancy test, sharing, “💔 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… after going for my 3rd scan and being told there was no longer a heartbeat 💔,” and later added, “Sometimes love won’t be enough to make it work, and that’s OK. It doesn’t mean that you’ve failed.”
Despite the harrowing event, the pop star went on to say that she would still perform for her audience on Wednesday night as planned. “This morning I feel like I have no control of my emotions. I may regret posting this. I may not. I actually don’t know.”
“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,” she continued.
“I have done two shows in two years and my soul needs it, even more today,” she said. “I know some people will be thinking, ‘She should just cancel it.’ But in this moment I have clarity on one thing. I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self-love therapy, that hasn’t ever changed and I have to process this my way.”
The Grammy-nominated artist aims to be as herself as she can be at this time while expressing her grief via music saying, “Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did its best,” and further said that the painful event would not deter her from attempting again.
“I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short,” she explained. “To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again.”
She went on to describe losing a baby as the world’s loneliest experience and concluded the post by, “So I will see you tonight LA. I may crack less jokes but my heart will be in the room.”
In a second slide on her Instagram post, quoting Australian poet eyda Noir, it says, “Sometimes love won’t be enough to make it work, and that’s ok. It doesn’t mean that you’ve failed.”
