Gone far too soon. Louis Tomlinson’s sister Félicité tragically passed away at the young age of 18, the singer’s rep confirmed to In Touch. The model and social media influencer was reportedly found dead at her fourth-floor studio apartment in West London after a suspected heart attack.
Someone in the apartment supposedly called for an ambulance and there were “extensive” efforts to save her life, but after paramedics tried to revive her, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Félicité has over 1.3 million Instagram followers and the last photo she posted was on March 10. “Don’t know why I look so shocked,” she captioned the post. Before her untimely death, Félicité was planning to publish a book of her own poetry. Félicité and Louis are reportedly “very close.”
This heartbreaking news comes two years after the One Direction singer’s mother, Johannah, died following a battle with Leukemia. She sadly succumbed to the disease in 2016 and it was a devastating time for her family as she was only 43 years old. Louis opened up about the traumatic experience in an emotional song called “Two of Us.”
“You’ll never know how much I miss you / The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead,” the vulnerable lyrics read. “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.”
After hearing about Louis’ sister’s death, several fans took to social media to send their condolences. “Honestly devastated for Louis Tomlinson,” one tweeted. “That guy has been through so much pain and heartbreak in the last few years. I can’t even begin to imagine what he is going through. Sending prayers and love and everything else. What a cruel world.”
We’re keeping the Tomlinson family in our thoughts during this very tough time.
