They were four solo singers before music magnate Simon Cowell decided to shake things up and knead Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock in Little Mix.
The feisty girl band, which was founded in 2011, became X Factor's biggest export with four hugely successful albums and a handful of prizes, including a BRIT for best British single.
So why are the fierce foursome and Syco separated?
False rumors between fans spun a picture of rows with some say that the foursome split up with Syco to get a new manager – this is strongly denied that this is in contrast to Mixers theories – Cowell left ways with their management, modest, not the other way round.
It is thought that it is the maker of X Factor decided to support the loyal employees who have worked for his Syco label for years, but has said that he will support Little Mix by inviting them to the X Factor final.
A spokesperson for Simon said: "Syco Music no longer works with Modest Management and that's why artists have registered with that management company.
"Of course we wish all artists affected by this decision all the success of the future, making LM5, the upcoming Little Mix album A & R & # 39; d and released on Syco Music, at the request of Syco and Simon Cowell by RCA is maintained. "
Little Mix beat back critics of sexy stage outfits and blast double standards
Fans say that the girls chose to move to record company RCA because it is the home of MD Stacey Tang.
Jesy hinted at how embittered the split was, and found an Instagram message saying: "They will leave Syco and then tell us what Syco did not get through."
It is thought that the rows started when the girls felt that they did not get enough appreciation for their single, Woman Like Me, with the American superstar Nicki Minaj.
After claiming a writing credit alongside Ed Sheeren, Jess Glynne and Steve Mac, Cowell reportedly admitted eventually.
The girls were appalled, however, because they had to fight for an honor which according to them had to be paid automatically.
All four are supposed to have written a strongly formulated e-mail in which they raise their problems with their label.
A larger line would then have erupted between the label and the Modest management bureau.
