The 46-year-old recalled how she recently got “quite upset” on seeing an old girlfriend, reminding her that she no longer gets the invites she used to get.
While she didn’t name names, the mother-of-two said she misses out on dinners and “countless special memories”, and is “only invited for coffee”.
However, the singer gushed about one couple in particular who have not changed in the wake of her and Jamie going their separate ways.

Writing in her new book You’ve Got This, Louise said the pair “tried to be diplomatic”, contiusing to invite both her and Jamie to events.
She recalled of her meeting with a pal, who she had not seen “for a while”: “I got quite upset.
“I told her I missed my girlfriends who I’d got to know when I was with Jamie.”
The star said that while they still do couples’ nights out, she was not a part of them.
Louise added: “I don’t think Jimmy will ever know what that meant to me — but in those moments where I felt lost and alone, it meant the world.”
She went on to say that missing out on weddings and big parties, and seeing them online, “can be pretty hard to swallow”.
“I feel that everyone took their side, and in some cases this meant cutting me off completely,” she added.
Louise and Jamie wed at a ceremony in Bermuda on June 29, 1998.
Six years later they welcomed a son Charles, 16, and brother Beau, 12, in 2008.
However, their long-term romance officially came to end after months of speculation just days after Christmas three years ago.
Jamie is now believed to have moved on with Frida Andersson-Lourie.
The 37-year-old Swedish model is also a divorcee and was previously married to 58-year-old American hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie.
