One Direction pop star Louis Tomlinson's sister Félicité dies tragically at 18  1 Week ago

Source:   USA Today  

Félicité Tomlinson, the 18-year-old sister of One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, has died at age 18.

AnnMarie Thomson, a representative for the British pop star, confirmed the reports to USA TODAY.

According to The Sun, Félicité collapsed Wednesday afternoon at her fourth-floor studio apartment in West London.

Police and ambulance were called to an address in West London at 12:52 Wednesday following reports of a woman "in cardiac arrest," London Metropolitan Police spokesperson Claire Cooper told USA TODAY in a statement.

"A female believed to be aged 18 was pronounced dead at the scene," the statement said. The cause of death is being treated as "unexplained," pending a post-mortem examination.

The social media influencer, who had 1.3 million followers on Instagram, last posted on Sunday March 10, sharing a selfie shot of herself looking into the mirror on the floor of her London apartment.

"Don't know why I look so shocked," she wrote in the caption. 

The tragic news comes two years after the death of the siblings' mother, Johannah Deakin, who died at age 43 following a battle with cancer. Louis will no longer be performing at a scheduled BBC Red Nose Day charity concert on Friday. He has yet to release a comment.

At the concert, Tomlinson had planned to perform his new song "Two of Us," written as tribute to his late mother and released a week ago.

Tomlinson told BBC Radio that the emotional song was "something I needed to get off my chest" and explained how difficult it was to play for his three sisters, including Félicité, because he didn't want them to "caught up in the sadness of it."

Sample lyrics from the song:

You'll never know how much I miss you
The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead

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

So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die
I'll be living one life for the two of us
I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me

Tomlinson has a son Freddie, 3, with ex-girlfriend Briana Jungwirth. The pop star is very close to his sisters;. Félicité recently posted a photo of a new tattoo which featured all the siblings' initials in Old English font.

In December, she simply captioned the smiling photo, "Family."

British talkshow host James Corden paid his respects Friday on Twitter saying, "Such incredibly sad news today. You’re not on your own in this @Louis_Tomlinson So many people are pulling for you and your family right now."
