Jessi J has announced she underwent a secret surgery in June but also told her 3.1 million followers via an Instagram video, Tuesday June 23 that she is now on the road to recovery.
The pop star who has a heart condition called Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome assured her fans that her hospitalization had nothing to do with the ailment neither her voice.
She captioned her video: “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. 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.”
“I just wanted to explain to my fans why I may go AWOL for a minute,” she continued. “Love, prayers and well wishes is all I need. Sleep, rest, maybe some pie and mash but mostly focusing my mind on getting my body better. And for the record it’s not my heart or my voice. My heart and voice are FINE.”
She added, “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.”
