WATCH: Jessie J Reveals She Underwent Surgery, Posts Video From Hospital
Jessie J revealed on Instagram on Tuesday that she underwent surgery on Monday, and would be staying off social media until she recovers. The pop star didn’t say what the operation was for, but assured her fans she was doing fine. Watch below.
Jessie J, who suffers from a heart condition called Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, also said the surgery had nothing to do with that ailment. “On fleek to on bleek real quick. 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,” wrote Jessie J alongside a video of her at the hospital.
She added, “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. 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. It’s personal and I know you can respect that.”
The singer continued writing that she would be going AWOL for a little while, and asked her fans to pray for her. “Sleep, rest, maybe some pie and mash but mostly focusing my mind on getting my body better,” wrote Jessie J, noting, “And for the record it’s not my heart or my voice. My heart and voice are FINE.”
She continued, “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.”
As Gossip Cop reported back in March, Jessie J took to Instagram to slam a report claiming she wasn’t going to be able to sing live anymore because of her heart condition. While the singer admitted at the time that she was feeling ill, Jessie J said it had nothing to do with that issue. Check out Jessie J’s hospital video below. Gossip Cop wishes the star a speedy recovery.
