    "Lying isn't journalism. They taught you that right?"

    Jessie and Channing reportedly parted ways at the end of December after a year of dating. Neither have publicly commented on the split.

    Earlier this week, the British singer shared a candid post on Instagram about gaining perspective, offering her advice to people who might be going through a tough time.

    In the post, which was liked by Channing, Jessie said: "Billions of people around the world. Are just trying to smile and mean it. Are actively working out who they are. Are missing someone they have lost. Are feeling worthless. YOU ARE LOVED."

    You can read the full caption below:

    Time. Time is the gift. Time is the fear. Time is the magic. Time is the memories. Time is the change. Time is the pain. Time is the healing. Zoom out.

    Go somewhere where your world feels and looks small. Gain perspective. Lay in the sea. Walk to the top of a mountain. Drive to view point in a park. Look up at the stars. This isn’t to make you feel like your problems or sadness or the feelings you feel are not valid but to know you are NEVER Alone. Billions of people around the world. Are just trying to smile and mean it. Are actively working out who they are. Are missing someone they have lost. Are feeling worthless. YOU ARE LOVED. We are all trying to love and accept the stories in our lives that make us desperately want to fast forward or rewind time. When all we have is the now. The very moment. With the puzzle pieces of life sometimes put together in the wrong places. They can hurt until tended to. Don’t let past or current trauma define who you are. You can walk away from it. Take the time to put those puzzle pieces in the right place. Tend to YOU. Be vulnerable. Be there for YOU. Be there for people around you and lift each other up. Break the cycle. Be open. Talk. Be there for yourself. Recognise the patterns of behaviour you have that can cause some of the hurt. Look inwards. Look outwards. Walk away from parts of yourself and people or situations that trigger parts of you that are unhealthy. Be honest.
    Sending LOVE to anyone who feels alone. We need you around. You are stronger than you know, and are capable of finding your happy time again. Talk to someone who can give you professional advice. Honour your pain to be heard by the right ears. It’s your TIME, so take your TIME ❤️

    However, after posting the candid message, some assumed that Jessie was referring to her relationship with Channing.

    But Jessie was quick to correct one particular headline, jumping into the comments to reveal that she had actually been talking about the death of her close friend.

    "The songstress got REAL about her best friend she lost this time last year," Jessie commented. "Lying isn't journalism. They taught you that right?"

    Following Jessie's comment, the headline was corrected and the publication apologised.
