In a surprising and tragic turn, Felicite ‘Fizzy’ Tomlinson, sister of One Direction star, Louis Tomlinson has died Wednesday.
Details are still coming in, but it is said that the 18 year old passed out at her West London home on Wednesday. A friend called 911, but it was too late. Emergency responders were unable to resuscitate the young woman, pronouncing her dead at the scene. At this time, the cause of death is unknown, but rumours are circulating that a heart attack may be the reason.
“We were called at 12.51pm. We sent two ambulance crews, a single responder in a car and an advanced paramedic to the scene. Sadly, despite efforts of our medics, a person died.” – London Ambulance Service
This is not the first heartbreak to find the Tomlinson family. Louis’ mother, Johanna Deakin, passed away in 2016 of cancer at the age of 43 after a private battle. Tomlinson was incredibly close to his mother, and has paid tribute to her in several songs he has written since. The latest of which, Two of Us, being the first single for his upcoming solo album, which was released just last week.
Louis has yet to comment on Fizzy’s passing. We can’t imagine the loss the Tomlinson/Deakin family is feeling at this time, and our prayers are with them. We hope that the One Direction fandom will rally in support, while also respecting their privacy at this time.
