What IS the dark mark on the Little Mix singer's stomach...?
There’s no denying that Jesy Nelson is looking AH-mazing right now.
But Little Mix fans were a little concerned about the 25-year-old yesterday, when she posted an Instagram snap of herself posing in a crop top and jeans combo.
At first glance, it appeared to be a pretty standard (but totally gorgeous) photo.
Jesy had paired her outfit with tumbling waves, hoop earrings and a dramatic smoky eye. However, on closer inspection, there appeared to be a worrying-looking mark on her stomach.
It was fairly large and dark, leading some to wonder whether she’d injured herself.
Comments included: ‘What is that black thing on Jess’ hips?’ ‘The bruise…’ and: ‘What happened to her stomach🤕😪 [sic].’
However, others reckoned there could be a far more simple explanation.
It could be noted that Jesy’s top appeared to have some mesh detailing which covered her tum. Combined with a filter, this would have highlighted her ab crease.
When you look back at Jesy’s past Instagram shots, you can see that her abs tend to create a shadow in this position – it’s just not usually so defined. Take a look at this…
One Mixer wrote: ‘It’s her stomach contour. Look at all her other crop top photos. It just looks black cause of the shirt and shadow,’ while another said: ‘Are you sure that is bruise? lol!😂 Its abs, the picture have filter. so it turns black 😠👎😁 [sic].’

Now Jesy’s representative has cleared everything up, telling Metro: ‘It’s just shading on her stomach that looks darker with the filter.’
Phew. We’re glad it’s not a bruise, because that shiner would’ve been PAINFUL.
