KEY POINTS

  • Little Mix is set to go on tour from April to May next year
  • The group does not have scheduled engagements after the tour
  • The members announced they are taking a break from the group

Little Mix is forever. This is what the three remaining members of the British girl band assured their fans while announcing their plans for 2022 and the years to come. 

Perrie Edwards, 28, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, and Jade Thirlwall, also 28, took to Twitter Thursday to seemingly address the ongoing speculations that Little Mix is disbanding soon, following 30-year-old Jesy Nelson’s departure last year and Edwards’ and Pinnock’s new roles as moms. 

The “Shout Out To My Ex” hitmakers are set to go on their “Confetti” tour in April next year, and they will wrap their performances in May. Because the girls do not have projects lined up after that, there have been rumors that it could be a sign that they’re breaking up. 

“We wanted to let you all know that after the Confetti tour in April/May next year we are going to be taking a break from Little Mix,” the members wrote in a tweet that quickly generated a lot of buzz online. 

In a follow-up tweet, the trio assured their fans that this is not the end of the road for their group. They said that they are just going on a hiatus to “recharge and work on some other projects” after being together for “10 amazing years.”

“We are not splitting up - Little Mix are here to stay. We have plans for more music, tours and performances in the future. We’ve made so many incredible memories with you all, and we can’t wait to make so many more,” Little Mix continued.

Concluding their series of statements, Edwards, Pinnock and Thirlwall wrote, “We’re sisters and we’ll always have each other and you, the fans, in our lives. Little Mix is forever.”

The break may be due to Edwards’ and Pinnock’s new personal milestones after giving birth to their kids and becoming mothers, according to Page Six.

Edwards welcomed her first child, a baby boy named Axel, with English soccer player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on Aug. 21. 

Two days later, Pinnock announced on social media that she and fiancé Andre Gray had welcomed twins, whose names have not been disclosed publicly.

The group’s announcement was met with a lot of supportive messages from their fans. Most of them agreed that the members deserved a break after working hard for a decade. 

“You girls deserve it! You have all worked so hard. Whatever you plan to do next, we all know it’s gonna be amazing. Whenever you girls come back just know we’ll be ready,” one fan wrote

“[Ten] years [of] working harder than anyone else and making your way to the top to establish yourselves as one of the biggest girl groups in the world. You deserve it,” another commented

It was not the first time the Little Mix members addressed the split rumors. Last month, when they made a guest appearance on “Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp,” they said that the band will continue despite Nelson’s exit.

“We’ll always stick together, we’ll always tour, we’ll always do things as a group because Little Mix, it’s fire, you know?” Edwards told the show’s host. 

Edwards then noted that what they have is something special and “we know that Little Mix as the three of us is so so strong and we never want that to be over.”
