Little Mix's Jesy Nelson At Centre Of Kidnap Plot

Little Mix star Jesy Nelson’s brother told a court yesterday that he was forced to sell drugs after his dealer threatened to kidnap his X Factor winning sister.

Johnny Nelson, 23, who had racked up huge debts with a £100-a-day cocaine habit, claimed a dealer named “Mr Turner” ­threatened to snatch the 20-year-old Little Mix singer. Johnny walked free in the end with a 10-month suspended sentence.

Unemployed Johnny said that he was forced into dealing after a £500 debt was increased to £3,000 for late payment.

He said: “I spoke to him (Mr Turner) on the phone – he had threatened to kidnap my sister because she had just become famous. He called me again and said ‘you will have to do me a few favours’.”

Johnny also claimed three members of a drugs gang burst into his girlfriend’s home and broke his arm with a wooden baseball bat.

He said: “They pushed their way in, saying ‘you owe Mr Turner money’, I was whacked on the back of the head and one of them grabbed and spun me round and the other one hit me with a wooden baseball bat.”
 
 
Johnny sold two wraps of cocaine from his car in Hornchurch, Essex, in December last year. He received £80 cash for the drugs.

James Lachkovic, defending, told Southend crown court that Johnny was “simply a delivery boy”.

He added: “One simply cannot envisage a lesser role than that”.

Judge Jonathan Black, sentencing, told Johnny he was “stupid” for agreeing to sell drugs. He added: “This will no doubt cause embarrassment to your sister who has taken a strong anti-drugs stance.”

Johnny was also ordered to carry out 200 hours unpaid work in the community. He will also have to pay court costs of £600.

Johnny, whose mum Janis, 51, is a Police Community Support Officer, said he is no longer using drugs.

There is no suggestion that Jesy, from Romford, Essex, was aware of her brother’s dealing. The Little Mix singer won the eighth series of the X Factor with bandmates Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall.
