X Factor 2012: Jade Ellis admits she knew she was a lesbian after she had her daughter
Jade Ellis has revealed that after the birth of her daughter, she realised she was not meant to be in a relationship with a man.
The 25 year old singer has shot to fame on The X Factor, making it through auditions and bootcamp and into the final six girls for judges houses. Last week she admitted that while most of the girls were ogling Gary Barlow in Liverpool, her eyes were firmly fixed on former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.
Jade is mum to six year old Caiden and is living happily with her long term partner Heva and in a new interview she has revealed that she finally admitted her sexuality and came out when her child was just five months old.
‘I had Caiden when I was going through a phase where I didn’t really know where I was in life,’ Jade told Now. She added:
‘But I knew I wasn’t meant to be with a man.”
It was meeting Heva that set things straight in Elis’ mind and she continued:
‘Five months after I had my daughter, me and Heva just looked at each other and knew.
‘And ever since then, we’ve been happily together.’
Jade and Heva are incredibly happy, however that seems to be despite a lot of people around them and the talented singer confessed that she has faced more than her fair share of taunting and abuse in her local area.
‘I’ve walked to the shops before and people have shouted at me and Caiden,’ she continued.
‘I can brush it off, but it isn’t nice in front of my daughter.’
Jade has made it as far as Tulisa’s judges houses and will be seen this weekend singing her heart out for the former N-Duba star and her celebrity assistant Tinie Tempah.
The girls travelled to the tropical island of St Lucia to record their final tryouts and on Sunday night viewers will discover if Jade did enough to make it through to the live shows.
We have our fingers, our toes and even our eyes crossed that she makes it, because Ms Ellis is definitely one of the strongest singers on the series this year.
Meanwhile, as we prepare for the judges houses episodes of the show to air next weekend, Unreality TV have put together out predictions for his year’s X Factor final 12. Have a look and tell us if you agree!
