Jessie J shared the tragic news that she had miscarried her baby after keeping her pregnancy private for several months.
The 33-year-old took to Instagram with a heartfelt post showcasing her pain as she held up a pregnancy test that read "not pregnant" with tears in her eyes.
Another picture included a devastating quote which read: "Sometimes love won't be enough to make it work, and that's ok.
"It doesn't mean that you've failed."
The singer also included a devastating caption to accompany the two images, she wrote: "Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying 'seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant'.
"By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…
"After going for my 3rd scan and being told there was no longer a heartbeat.
"This morning. I feel like I have no control of my emotions. I may regret posting this. I may not. I actually don't know."
The hitmaker had decided that in spite of her grief, she still wanted to get on stage to perform for her fans but wanted to make it clear that this would help her to feel better.
She added: "What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because I'm avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.
"I have done two shows in two years and my soul needs it. Even more today.
"I know some people will be thinking she should just cancel it. But in this moment I have clarity on one thing. I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self love therapy, that hasn't ever changed and I have to process this my way.
"I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. I deserve that. I want to be as myself as I can be in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did it’s best.
"I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that's who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer."
The former Voice UK coach went on to explain that she'd decided to raise her unborn child on her own because "life is short".
Jessie went on: "I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it's all I've ever wanted and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again."
"Im still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming. But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok.
"I also know millions of women all over the world have felt this pain and way worse. I feel connected to those of you I know and those of you I don't.
"It’s the loneliest feeling in the world."
The chart topper finished: "So I will see you tonight LA. I may crack less jokes but my heart will be in the room."
