X Factor: Little Mix Jesy Nelson’s brother – Johnny Nelson – a drug dealer?
The brother of Jesy Nelson has been accused today of being a known drug dealer.
The Sun reports that the sibling of the Little Mix singer offered cocaine to an undercover reporter this week, during a deal that would have taken place in his tiny Smart car in London.
Little Mix have made a lot of their clean cut image and their ability to be good role models to young girls, so this will come as quite a blow to the X Factor winners.
The newspaper claims that one of their staff rang Johnny Nelson’s mobile and arranged a time to meet him, near a London branch of Sainsburys.
He charged them £80 and passed over a pack of the white substance, which a lab later confirmed was the illegal drug cocaine.
Insiders claim that Jesy will be devastated by the news, which breaks just weeks after it was revealed that her father was once convicted and served part of a prison sentence for murder.
The news won’t be received well by her mum either, as it may impact on her job as a police community support officer.
Meanwhile, Jesy and her Little Mix bandmates have landed their first number one, topping the charts in Ireland yesterday. They look set to follow suit in the UK tomorrow but it seems unlikely that they will hold onto the top spot for two weeks running and so will probably lose out on Christmas Number one next Sunday.
