Little Mix will reportedly announce next month they are parting ways to pursue solo careers, it has been claimed.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, who appeared to take aim at ex-bandmate Jesy Nelson in their new song Cut You Off amid their "feud", are said to be heading in different directions after their 2022 tour.
"There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Little Mix, but it is now very clear that the end of the road has been reached," a source has told The Sun.
The publication adds that the girl group will make the shocking split announcement in mid-November.
The source added: "A date is set to announce the split. The upcoming tour is going to be a farewell to their fans."
OK! has contacted a representative for Little Mix for further comment.
The Sun previously reported that the group have been working out record deals individually as they negotiate the terms of the next phase of their careers separately from each other.
"They've been pretty open with each other about it. There are a lot of meetings happening at the moment," a source said. "Some of them have already done management deals.
"Leigh-Anne has signed up with Dua Lipa's manager, Jade is cutting her teeth as a songwriter and presenter while Perrie is working on other things too. They still get on great, despite everything which has happened with Jesy. But her departure put the cat among the pigeons.
"They all know there will have to be a career beyond Little Mix, so they've put things in place. The plan is to see out commitments, then turn to solo projects almost immediately. The intention is to keep the band going too, but that's how One Direction ended and it's hard to believe they will have time for everything."
This comes after Little Mix appeared to call out Jesy for her abrupt decision to leave the band in their new single, Cut You Off.
Band member Jade, 28, reportedly sings harshly: "I know you think you're all that, it'll be so sweet when you crawl back, but it's too late now."
Perrie, 28, follows up pondering where a relationship went wrong, "Someone tell me how, how did we get here? It used to be so good. Nothing lasts forever, but I really thought we could.
These lyrical jabs follow what has been a tumultuous week for the band and Jesy, as they unfollowed each other on Instagram amid Jesy's 'blackfishing' row sparked by her new video for her solo single 'Boyz'.
Their feud continued when Nicki Minaj, who features in the video, called member Leigh-Anne Pinnock a "jealous clown" after leaked messages appeared to show Leigh-Anne calling Jesy "horrible" following her music video release.
