JESSIE J has revealed she is leaving Britain because of speculation over her love life.

The singer has sold her house in London and bought a property in Hollywood. The 26-year-old said she is moving to Los Angeles because her talents are appreciated more in the US.

"In America they see me as a singer, whereas here I feel that people don't appreciate my voice. I've dedicated my life to singing and I want it to be taken seriously. Here it seems all people want to know is what I've had for breakfast and who I'm sleeping with," she told a Sunday newspaper.
