Singer Jessie J cleared the air with a detailed health update about Meniere's Disease after experiencing a health scare on Christmas Eve that left her feeling deaf and losing sleep.


Jessie J has taken to social media to set the record straight after believing that the tabloids did not accurately report the details of her diagnosis with Meniere's Disease.

It happened that last weekend, the "Price Tag" singer took to her Instagram Live to announce that she was diagnosed with Meniere's on Christmas Eve. However, the health scare made headlines wrongly, with tabloids claiming she was hospitalized.

Yesterday, alongside a recording of the Live, Jessie cleared the air in a lengthy caption. She explained that she shared the health update on the 27th and stated that it was for 22 minutes exactly, so her followers got the facts right.

Jessie stated that she was grateful for her health because things could be way worse.


Jessie wrote that she even sang during the live recording. The English singer revealed that in the past, she had always been open about her health challenges. However, this time, things went out of hand. She wrote:

"I have watched the media take 3 words from this live and create a very dramatic version of the truth. I'm not surprised..."


She noted that the post wasn't to seek sympathy but rather raise awareness for people who have Meniere's. Jessie concluded, thanking everyone who supported and checked on her.

In the Live, Jessie was seen in her home wearing a hoodie with her hair roughly styled. She said that she woke the day before Christmas Eve and felt completely deaf in her right ear.


She noted that those who have had Menieres would understand her plight as she couldn't walk in a straight line. Jessie concluded, assuring fans that she is doing well and got the right medicine when she went to the ear hospital.

Jessie stated that she was grateful for her health because things could be way worse. In a follow-up selfie upload, she detailed some of the lingering symptoms she's experiencing.


The health scare came weeks after the Grammy-nominated singer returned to the stage to perform for the first time since 2019 when she wowed fans at the Rock in Rio concert.

Fans may recall that Jessie and actor Channing Tatum shocked fans when they announced their split earlier this year. In October, the singer reflected on her lost romance in a cryptic post on her Instagram story.

The "Bang Bang" crooner spoke about unhealthy love and advised people not to put deadlines on love and relationships. Jessie and Tatum dated on and off for two years before they ended things in April.
