Showing off pictures from an intimate gig at The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood on December 15 Jessie explained: ‘I got covid at this show BUT The audience could clap in time Balance.’
Jessie had said ironically at the time that the gig was a ‘safe space’.
Seeing her most recent post, fans hoped she was in recovery and someone who was there commented: ‘”Safe space” my a**. It was a great show though!
‘Great intimate space and wore my mask the whole time. Had a feeling Rona was lurking in the room.’

Another added: ‘We wore our mask the entire show as well!!! I was so freaked out the almost nobody had masks on.
‘We contemplated leaving but our love of her music made us stay. I went and got tested a few days after because it was so unsafe!’
It comes after Jessie recently spoke out about why she publicly revealed she had suffered a miscarriage just hours after her losing her baby.
The singer teared up as she played an intimate gig in LA in November, after being told the devastating news by doctors earlier.
Taking to Instagram, Jessie detailed the ‘pain, trauma and loneliness’ she experienced as she struggled to come to terms with her grief.

Reaction: Seeing her most recent post, fans hoped she was in recovery and someone who was there commented: ‘”Safe space” my a**. It was a great show though!’
The singer admitted: ‘The show must go on’ mentality in her reacted before the human in her did, and immediately felt compelled to try and be inspirational when really she needed to cry.
She wrote: ‘I posted about losing my baby just hours after I was told. I reacted in work mode. It’s safe to say I sometimes pour more energy into creating a unhealthy process of my own pain in front of a camera, than I do acknowledging it behind one in real time.
‘”The show must go on” mentality reacted before the human in me did. I must justify to the audience for my show tomorrow, and explain to the world why I might be a little off, was my first thought. I must turn this into a inspirational, I know I will be OK, strong moment, because that’s who I am right?
‘Truth is, I just needed to f*****g cry and fall into someone’s arms and sob. But at the time I was alone. I hadn’t processed anything. Nor did I have any idea what I was about to go through not just emotionally but physically after this show.’

Jessie went on to explain how she understands the need to talk openly about miscarriage, and how her experience of baby lost has ‘changed her forever.’
She wrote: ‘I truly now understand why women so often talk about the want and need for miscarriage to be openly spoken about more.
‘As I have learnt now that what people know of miscarriage to be (including myself before this past 2 weeks) unless you have personally experienced it. What people think it is, is in fact not a true reflection of what it really is at all. How can people support when they don’t know?
‘I have never experienced pain and trauma or felt loneliness like it. This has changed me forever. In the most, heartbreaking, but beautiful way. It’s put life into perspective in a way nothing else ever has.’
Speaking directly to women who have endured miscarriage, Jessie shared her grief for them and insisted that being broken, weak and exhausted is allowed.
She wrote: ‘I am so sorry if you have ever been through it alone or with a loving partner, or are going through it right now at any stage of pregnancy. Losing your baby is one of the worst feelings in the world.

‘I ache for you. If I could I would bring you food, hold you through the physical pain, I know that’s needed more than a “stay strong” text right now. I guess I’m here to say to anyone who may not have been told this, you are allowed to be broken.
‘You are allowed to cry. Allowed to be weak. Allowed to be exhausted from the pain and the bleeding and the grief that barely has space to exist. You are allowed to do this however YOU need to.
‘Sometimes life just calls us to be human. We know there will be sunshine, but we can’t avoid the rain.’
Her post comes after she broke down in tears on stage as she performed an intimate gig in LA in November, hours after announcing she had suffered a miscarriage.
The heartbroken singer had been told by doctors after her third scan, that they could no longer feel a heartbeat.
During her gig at The Hotel Cafe, Jessie said she had ‘never felt more alone’ after losing what would have been her first baby.

Speaking to the audience, Jessie said through tears: ‘I decided to have a baby by myself and by a miracle it worked for a little while and yesterday was f*****g s**t. This year has been hands down the hardest year that I’ve ever had to go through.
‘In December last year I lost my hearing, I got diagnosed with Menieres. Then I lost my voice which was f*****g awful. Then I lost my baby. I know I’m going to be ok because there is really nothing else to choose in the way I live.
‘I’ve never felt more alone than I have felt in the past week.’
Back in 2014, Jessie revealed she ‘can’t ever’ have children naturally. She said on stage at the time: ‘I was told four years ago that I can’t ever have children.
‘I don’t tell you guys for sympathy because I’m one of millions of women and men that have gone through this and will go through this.’
Jessie took to the stage within hours of announcing she had miscarried and told fans ‘I’m all over the place’ as she opened the two-hour gig.
‘Good evening everyone. I’m going to play some music make it even more f******g emotional,’ she said.

‘Please be with me tonight, read the room. Everyone in this room is human and all of us are going through something in life right now.
‘Forgive me I’m all over the place in my life and I’m not going to pretend I’m not so Price Tag might seem a little sadder than usual but I’ll do my f******g best.
‘I’m in the thick of it in this moment and that’s the reason why I’m here because there isn’t anything in life which helps me understand myself more than this.
‘I had no idea how I was going to feel it might be a night of balance. My heart feels like I’m running, but I’m not.’
‘I’m in quite a bit of pain,’ Jessie added, before she told the audience she felt insecure because she was ‘swollen’ as she removed her plush coat.
Earlier in the day, Jessie told followers she had ‘decided to have a baby on her own’, after revealing in October she had split from her boyfriend of seven months Max Pham.
The grieving songstress said she was ‘still in shock’ but decided to perform in Los Angeles later on Wednesday evening ‘because singing will help me’.
Alongside a photo of her holding a pregnancy test, Jessie 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.’
She continued: ‘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.
‘I’m 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. So I will see you tonight LA. I may crack less jokes but my heart will be in the room.’
