On Saturday (June 27), she took to Instagram to post an image of a drip in her arm, with the caption reading: “I have seen a lot of “How are you today” comments… How am I…. *Looks up sighs and has to be honest*
I am not ok… I am in a lot of pain.”
The star continued: “We all have our moments and one of mine is now. Being human sucks when you are non stop and your body says NOPE not right now… Sometimes admitting how you really feel can be the quickest road to recovery.”
A week prior, Jessie J had posted a before and after image as she returned from surgery. She also wrote: “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.
“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”.
Approached for more information by NME, a spokesperson for Jessie J declined to comment.
