Jessie J recently shared that she suffered from miscarriage.
On Wednesday night, the singer performed at The Hotel Café in Los Angeles, California where she emotionally discussed her recent experience of losing her child.
Based on video clips shared by fans who were present at the show, the singer said, “I was told a long time ago that I couldn’t have children and I never believed it. I don’t believe in lies.”
The 33-year-old singer, who was seen swaying back and forth to soft music, continued, “I decided to have a baby by myself. And then by a miracle it worked for a little while. And yesterday, yeah, yesterday was f–king s–t.”
Hours before her show, Jessie revealed on Instagram that she had a miscarriage. She told her followers that she “was dreading the thought of getting through” her performance in L.A. after finding out from her doctors that they could no longer find a heartbeat.
The pop star went on to thank those in attendance for making her feel less alone while grieving over her pregnancy loss.
She said, “I wanted to be here tonight because the one thing I believe in the most in this whole entire universe, beyond surface conversations and Instagram and the internet, is being human and being vulnerable and being real.”
The singer reflected on having a very tough year. She suffered from hearing loss in December last year and was later diagnosed with Ménière’s disease. She also revealed losing her voice which was “f–king awful” for her as she “didn’t know who [she] was without” performing.
She added sadly, “And then I lost my baby.” Despite all these, the singer stays positive. She explained, “I know I’m going to be OK because there is really nothing else to choose in the way I live.”
Fans took to social media to offer their support for Jessie and to praise her for showing her vulnerability in front of an audience.
One fan wrote, “I’ve had [the] loss of a husband and her words for her loss resonate so truly, we are human and it’s okay to be vulnerable. She is a fighter … don’t give in @JessieJ, ever. You stand for hope.”
