Jesy Nelson has officially retired from the business she set up with her Little Mix bandmates to look after their earnings.
A termination of appointment for the singer, 30, as a director of Eternal Dance Media Ltd was registered with Companies House on Thursday.
The star left the group – now Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29, Perrie Edwards, 28, and Jade Thirlwall, 28 – in December 2020 after nine years saying her participation in the group had taken a toll on her mental health.

Set for release on November 12, the LP will include their greatest hits and some brand new material in a release which comes hot on the heels of former bandmate’s widely-teased solo venture, believed to be called Boyz.
Alongside a video montage, including their time on The X Factor in 2011, the trio said of their follow-up to 2020’s Confetti: ‘Between Us 12.11…
‘We are so excited about this album. It includes all our hits, as well as some brand new songs we can’t wait for you to hear. We can’t thank you all enough for your support over the last ten years…
Yay: Little Mix have announced their first album since Jesy Nelson’s exit from the group
‘This album is for each and every one of you who’s listened to our music, bought an album or sung your heart out at one of our shows. We wouldn’t be here releasing this album if it wasn’t for you #10YearsOfLittleMix. Pre-order link in bio.’
Meanwhile Jesy, who has recently signed with Ariana Grande’s label Republic Records, is getting ready to drop her first single as a solo artist, with the track potentially coming out at the same time as Little Mix’s.
A source told The Sun: ‘Little Mix have had big plans for their tenth anniversary for a long time. They started those discussions while Jesy was still in the group.
‘Plans did change after they delayed their tour and Perrie and Leigh-Anne got pregnant. But a celebration of their music feels like the perfect way to mark the occasion.
‘It is unfortunate and quite awkward for them all that it will be coming out around the same time as Jesy’s music. But there is nothing they can do, really. They won’t change their plans just to avoid her. They are going to make the most of their incredible decade of achievements.’
Stunning: To mark their 10th anniversary, the group – comprising Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock – have unveiled their seventh studio album, ‘Between Us’
