It’s been reported Jessie J is a lesbian who was forced to hide her sexuality to make her more ‘trendy’, a new book has claimed.
Govan said: ‘Jessie might have been with boys in the past – but she is 100 per cent gay. Jessie was openly lesbian and didn’t hide it.
‘She was advised not to come out, though. Certain people thought being bi was trendy, exotic and a fashion statement. It would increase her allure.’

Jessie J talks suffering from Arthritis, having hairy feet, falling in the bath and premiering her new video ‘Who Are You’.
“I will always suffer from arthritis in my ankle. It really hurts,” she told The Mirror.
“It will be something I have to live with forever. So I will never make that full recovery. I won’t be able to wear heels again. But I’ll have some bad-boy Sketchers blinged up for me.
“At least I’m alive, and I can sing. I can’t wait to get back on stage. My foot was seriously hairy. It had thick black hairs on it. It was gross. So I’ve sorted myself out and got a pedicure. I’ve lost so much weight. My left leg has lost all its muscle. I don’t like it. Things got so bad my mum had to move in with me.
“I fell out of the bath, I couldn’t stand, cook, get up by myself. At first they gave me loads of painkillers at the hospital, but I didn’t take them after that. I didn’t want to become addicted. What sort of role model would I be if I became addicted?”
Jessie J got the most MOBO nominations with five nods including Best Newcomer and Best Video (Do It Like A Dude), when the nominations were announced last night.

Jessie J has admitted she is a clean freak and cleaning relaxes her!
“I’m obsessed with cleaning, I clean most nights,” she told Top of the Pops: “I get quite obsessive about it to be honest. I love cleaning, weird but true. It really relaxes me.”
Jessie also admits she’s not scared to talk to her band members about anything, even farts and poo!
“My band has got used to me talking about farts and poos,” she explained. “It annoys me when people are all girly about it. Everybody does it!
“I’ll do interviews and say I need a poo, I’ll go on stage and say my boob-tape is falling off, rather than US stars where it’s all perfect. I don’t want any boundaries.”

Tell us about your colourful background?
My parents are both South Indian. I was born and raised in Berlin, lived in India for a few years, then came back to Berlin were I went to an American school. I moved to London 14 years ago to study at the Royal Academy of Music –and here we are now! Goes without saying that my accent is a bit messed up!
Your early music memories…
My dad always blasted Tamil Christian songs and Bollywood music – not cool at 7 in the morning on a Saturday!! But the church I was raised in was very musical – lots of opera singers and professional musicians – and I was always performing in some way or other – jumping in last minute to sing in the choir, play piano, etc.
