Amid all the Perrie and Zayn ~drama~ this week, the rumours that Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson had called off her engagement to fiance Jake Roche had kind of fallen by the wayside.

But now, after both Jesy and Jake deleted photos of each other from Instagram and Jesy was seen without her engagement ring, a close friend of the singer has revealed the reason behind the couple’s reported break-up.

“Jake feels that, at 24, he’s too young to be a father,” the source told UK magazine Reveal. “He feels they have their whole lives ahead of them to start enjoying kids when the time is right.

“Jesy completely disagreed. She is only a year older but is much more emotionally mature – and she was always very clear with Jake that, as soon as she got married, she would want to start the next big chapter in their lives together.”

Whatever’s going on, at least Jesy has her girls to lean on.
