Jesy Nelson's brother Johnny Nelson has been given a 10-month suspended sentence after being convicted of selling cocaine.
The unemployed sibling of the Little Mix star, who had a £100-a-day coke habit he's now quit, claimed in court he was forced to sell drugs after a drug dealer 'discussed' trying to abuct the 20-year-old singer.
Johnny testified: '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".'
The 23-year-old also claimed his arm was broken when three men working for the dealer assaulted him with a wooden baseball bat.
He was ordered to complete 200 hours' community service and pay £600 court costs, reports the Daily Mirror.
Jesy, who shot to stardom after she won The X Factor 2011 with
bandmates Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, is an anti-drugs campaigner and mum Janis, 51, is a Police Community Support Officer,
There is no suggestion that Jesy, from Romford, Essex, was aware of her brother's dealing.
