Jessie J Is Not Doing Well After Recent Surgery

Singer reveals she's "in a lot of pain."

Published June 29, 2015

The powerhouse vocals that British singer Jessie J is typically known for have been silenced after a recent surgery. The “Bang Bang” singer, who often takes to Instagram to keep her fans updated on just about everything, has revealed she’s in “a lot of pain” following a mysterious procedure.

Jessie initially posted a before-and-after video a few days ago letting fans know she would be taking a few days off as a result of an illness that she wouldn’t name. Within the lengthy IG caption she mentions, “Hospitals have been my secret second home my whole life and they never get nice to be in,” suggesting this condition may be something the singer has battled with her entire life. 

On fleek to on bleek real quick | lol Before 😏 | After 😣 I'm going to be offline for a few days and I wanted to show you why | I don't often share personal stuff (especially about my health) anymore | I just get on with it secretly 😉 | but I wanted to share with you before someone else might and it gets twisted and exaggerated into something different or worse. Meh. 😒 Just know I am ok as I say in the video on the right | I had an operation yesterday so need to rest | I won't be saying what for so PLEASE don't keep asking me or harassing my close ones on here or anywhere for information | Its personal and I know you can respect that | I just wanted to explain to my fans why I may go AWOL for a minute | Love, prayers and well wishes is all I need ❤️ Sleep | rest | maybe some pie and mash 🙊 but mostly focusing my mind on getting my body better | and for the record it's not my heart or my voice | my heart and voice are FINE | ✊🏼 I want to take a moment to send a virtual hug and kiss out to anyone in pain or suffering at the moment. In hospital or at home. There is always someone worse off than us and in moments like this I pray for you all | Hospitals have been my secret second home my whole life and they never get nice to be in | But they can inspire a great song | Trying to see the positive in everything ☺️ Night gown could be good for the Voice live shows look too right? No? Too Much? 🐸☕️ lol Peace out for a minute people 🙋🏻 As Arni said on Graham Norton last night | "I'll be back" 😁

However, in a more recent post displaying just a cropped portion of her arm filled with IV’s and other needles, Jessie shared that she isn’t OK and is “in a lot of pain.” But with the help of her doctors and her mother, who is by her bedside, she hopes her road to recovery will be much faster. 


As a result of complications from a past surgery and unexpected delays in her recovery the Sweet Talker has had to cancel shows in Denmark, England and Belgium, which she has graciously apologized for on her social media accounts. 

Although there is no word on when Jessie will return to the stage, she is still in good spirits, giving shout-outs to her famous beau, Luke James, for being a “natural pain killer.”
