Louis Tomlinson’s younger sister, Félicité Tomlinson, has been found dead at the age of 18.
The One Direction star’s younger sister was found dead at her West London apartment on Wednesday following reports of a cardiac arrest.
It’s suspected that she collapsed in her home after suffering from a heart attack, although the cause of death has yet to be made official.
“We were called at 12.51pm. We sent two ambulance crews, a single responder in a car and an advanced paramedic to the scene,” reads a statement from the London Ambulance Service who were called to the scene on Wednesday.
“Sadly, despite efforts of our medics, a person died.
“Police are in the process of informing her next of kin. At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained.
“A post-mortem examination will take place in due course.”
We can’t begin to imagine how the 27-year-old 1D star is coping with the devastating news, especially after dealing with the heartbreak of losing his mother just two years ago.
Louis and Félicité’s mother Johannah passed away two years ago following a long battle with leukemia. Just last week, Louis Tomlinson released the song Two of Us, which pays tribute to his mother and references how much he misses her…
“You’ll never know how much I miss you. The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead,” Louis sings.
“But you once told me don’t give up. You can do it day by day. And diamonds they don’t turn to dust or fade away.”
Félicité – who also went by Fizzy – was an aspiring fashion designer and social media influencer with 1.3 million followers on Instagram. Her latest post has been flooded with messages of disbelief and support.
Louis Tomlinson was due to perform Two Of Us live on BBC’s Comic Relief show tonight but has understandably pulled out.
RIP Félicité. Our thoughts are with Louis and the rest of the Tomlinson family.
