Leigh-Anne Pinnock's friend Stefan Bertin has hit out at Jesy Nelson as he told fans not to listen to her first single since leaving Little Mix in December 2020.
The hairdresser, who attended Leigh-Anne 30th birthday bash last week, took to his Twitter feed to make a few digs at Jesy amid reports of a feud between the pair.
On 8 October, the day Jesy released the song and music video to Boyz in collaboration with Nicki Minaj, Stefan warned people away from listening to it.
First, he reposted the promo snap of Nicki posing with who is supposed to be Jesy, but the British singer was Photoshopped out only to be replaced by EastEnders star Charlie Brooks. It was captioned: “It’s the U.K. Baddie and the Barbie”.
Straight after this, Stefan retweeted a fan who wrote: "Alright let me listen to that song," and responded: "Don't".
The fan replied back: "My ears," with five weary face emojis.
Following this, Stefan decided to take aim at P. Diddy, 51, who featured in the music video, which was based on his 2001 song Bad Boys For Life.
He wrote: "Diddy is NOT seeing the pearly gates. He’s not even seeing purgatory. Straight one-way ticket to the underworld. Do not pass go. Do not collect any more Danity Kane royalties.”
A fan then replied: "YALL NOT GOD! STREAM BOYZ!," to which he hit back: "get a life, darling," followed by a sparkles emoji.
Days later, on October 11, Stefan retweeted a post hitting out at Nicki, 38, which read: "Not Nicki painting Leigh-Anne as the angry, jealous black woman in order to help a white woman continue to be a culture vulture… This rrally the hill you wanna die on?"
He also replied to one of Nicki's tweets, where she wrote: "JeLeigh btchs actin real messy. if you know someone has been suicidal from bullying in the past, why try to get a bunch of ppl to bully them again about smthng else, on an even bigger scale? Shame on you— that’s rlly sad. You don’t know what ppl can deal with. Mental Health," with a folded hands emoji.

He said: "It’s been a whole 9 hours since the live why are you still going?"
OK! Online has approached Jesy and Leigh-Anne's representatives for further comment.
The apparent feud between Leigh-Anne and Jesy started after TikTok user NoHun, whose real name is Raurie Williams, took to social media on Sunday 10 October to claim to his 343,000 fans that in shared screenshots of messages he apparently received from 28 year old Leigh-Anne's account, she allegedly called Jesy, 30, a "horrible" person. It is not known who amongst Leigh-Anne's entourage has access to her social media account.
The messages claimed that NoHun "should create a video around Jesy blackfishing" – which means to accuse someone of pretending to have Black or mixed race heritage.
Following this, Jesy and rapper Nicki went on an Instagram live together to talk to their combined 168.1 million fans about their collaborative song Boyz on Monday 11 October.
During the conversation, brunette beauty Jesy told their legion of followers that she "never ever" meant to offend anyone with her tan and curly hair amid accusations that she appeared to "blackfish" in her new video.
While discussing their work together, Nicki appeared to hit out at women who speak behind the backs of other people, branding them "jealous clowns".
