Jessie J miscarried, revealing the heartbreaking news in a moving Instagram post.
The 33-year-old pop star still appeared to reveal to the world that she was pregnant and explained that she was going to have a baby “on her own” before a doctor found out there was no heartbeat.
But, some fans missed the point of the post, assuming the photo of her holding a pregnancy test meant she was breaking some good news.
Many fans – including her own record company, Republic Records – rushed to be among the first to congratulate her.
The unfortunate mistake prompted some to tell people to read the singer’s post before commenting.
âGuys, read the whole post! She says she got pregnant but lost the babyâ¦ be careful and be kind. Jessie must be in terrible pain right now): I’m so sorry, baby â¤ï¸ @jessiej we love you, âwrote one of them.
In the post, Jessie wrote: âYesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying, ‘Seriously, how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling everyone in the audience that I’m pregnant. Yesterday afternoon, I dreaded the idea of ââending the concert without breaking downâ¦ After doing my third scan and I was told that there was no more heartbeat.
Jessie also informed fans as she broke the tragic news on Wednesday that she would continue the scheduled performance, which was set to be her second in two years.
âWhat I know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because I avoid heartbreak or process, but because I know singing tonight will help me. I have done 2 shows in 2 years and my soul needs it. Even more today, âshe said.
Hitmaker Price Tag then insisted she was “strong” when explaining her decision to continue her performance.
âI want to be honest and true and not hide how I feel. I deserve this. I want to be as myself as possible right now. Not just for the audience but for me and my little baby who did her best. I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s what I am. So instead of a moving tearful speech trying to explain my energy. It seems safer, âshe wrote.
âI decided to have a baby on my own. Because that’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. Getting pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will see her again.
âBut I know I’m strong and I know that everything will be fine. I also know that millions of women around the world have felt this pain and much worse. I feel connected to those of you that I know and those of you that I don’t know. It is the loneliest feeling in the world.
