The 27-year-old singer was shocked to learn her former beau Alex had permanently banned her from looking at his Instagram uploads when she recently tried to snoop on his profile to find out if he was dating again, only to be greeted by a blank space where she once scrolled through streams of his private photos.

Speaking about the snub on Kiss FM, the blonde beauty said: "I'm thinking about him right now, but he blocked me recently. I went to go look at his Instagram.

"I'm not saying that I'm sitting on my phone all day like, 'Oh let me look at this guy who broke my heart'. Once every four months, just to see if he got a new girl or something."

The 'I Got You' hitmaker has struggled to get over the break-up and has remained single for two years because she has refused to "throw" her love around.

She explained: "I haven't had a boyfriend since. I'm an old school romantic, I don't like to just like throw my heart around."

And the powerhouse's heartbreak, which she has claimed pushed her to the verge of depression, strongly influenced her new album 'All Your Fault' and led her to churn out "six songs in a row".

She said: "I have an album coming out called 'All Your Fault'. When I got my heart broken by my ex I was bitter so then I wrote the first part of this album. It's really moody, dark, rhythmic, urban.

"It was interesting because I got my heart broken and at the time I had a music manager and my best friend was my assistant. At the same time my ex broke up with me, my manager came to my house one day and was 'I don't want to manage you anymore' and my best friend decided to go work for my manager.

"I was like in LA crying. Thank god, my mother flew up from New York city. She was like, 'You need to have somebody watch you because you are too depressed right now'. But I went to the studio and this first part was like bam, bam, bam, was like six songs in a row, we did it. And then the second part is completely like a change, stronger."
