Jessie had detailed her agony over the festive period when she was struck with the disease, of which she claimed she previously had no knowledge.

Alongside her latest video, Jessie penned: ‘I went live around 1am on the 27th December for 22 mins (specific) But facts matter…

‘I sang (really quietly) for most of it and spoke a little. Anyone who watched it knows that’s what happened. I go live a lot and don’t post them. I saved this one…

‘This is the speaking edited down. I have often in the past been open and honest about health challenges I have faced. Big or small. This was no different…

‘BUT… Since going live I have watched the media take 3 words from this live and create a very dramatic version of the truth. I’m not surprised BUT I also know I too have the power to set the story straight…

‘I’m not posting this for sympathy. Im posting this because this is the truth. I don’t want anyone thinking I lied about what actually happened… 

‘I wasn’t aware of Menieres before now and I hope this raises awareness for all the people who have been suffering way longer or worse than I.

‘Now’s the first time I’ve been able to sing and bear it. I just miss singing so much and being around anyone.’

The star went on: ‘It could be way worse, it is what it is. I’m super-grateful for my health. It just threw me off. On Christmas Eve I was in the ear hospital going, ‘What is going on?’.

‘But I’m glad I went early and they worked out what it was real quick and I got put on the right medicine so I feel a lot better today.

What is Meniere’s disease?

Ménière’s disease is an ear condition that can cause sudden attacks of vertigo (a spinning sensation).

During an attack of Ménière’s disease you may feel like you or everything around you is spinning, lose your balance and feel sick. 

 SYMPTOMS:

During an attack of Ménière’s disease, you may:

feel dizziness with a spinning sensation

feel unsteady on your feet

feel sick or vomit

hear ringing, roaring or buzzing inside the ear

have a sudden drop in hearing

These symptoms, which typically happen all at once, can last minutes or hours, but most commonly last 2 to 3 hours.

The condition usually starts in 1 ear, but can spread to both ears over time.

She said: ‘I am now watching Queens Gambit with my finger in my ear. I’ve done the first episode 4 times because I zero focus and my ear sounds like someone crawled in and turned a hair dryer on. 

Her post was flooded with many sympathetic messages, including Ru Paul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage who commented: ‘Menieres NOT fun….i feel your pain.’

With Jessie replying: ‘you have had it too? It’s so weird and comes out of nowhere, merry Christmas.’

Meanwhile, at the start of the coronavirus crisis, the brunette sparked reconciliation claims with screen star Channing Tatum, 40, when she uploaded a sweet message in celebration of his birthday. 

The singer’s social media activity came just weeks after she was reported to have called it quits from the thespian once again, following on from their rekindled relationship earlier this year. 

Magic Mike’s Channing is said to have made an account on the celebrity dating app Raya following their break-up, quipping in his bio: ‘And yes, I used to be a stripper. Sorry.’ 

The pair, who first started dating in late 2018, reunited in January following a nearly two-month long break, with a source telling E! at the time: ‘They are fully back together’. 

The Think About That star’s new song Simply Be In Love is reportedly about their relationship. 

The lyrics of the track, obtained by The Sun, appear to suggest the reason for their many breakups was because they rushed into things too quickly.

She sings: ‘You’re always dreaming about tomorrow, and I’m still overthinking yesterday.

‘Where you go I know I want to follow, let’s make a promise on today. Take it slow, baby steps, so we don’t ruin what comes next. 

‘Just be still, just stay calm, so we’re not rushing what we are. Pressure off, just have fun, it’s not a race, no need to run. If it’s for ever, let’s just simply be in love.’
