Jesy told Roman, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay that the best advice she could offer to anyone who is/was in a similar situation to her, was to talk to someone.

"That's what I didn't do, and that's what made me worse," said the 'Power' singer. "I couldn't even talk about the subject without crying," she continued, saying that she now feels proud and confident.

"You do just need to talk to people - whether it be friends, family, or a therapist. Because keeping it in will make you feel a lot worse."

Jesy went on to praise her boyfriend, Chris Hughes, for supporting her throughout the whole ordeal.
