Sister of One Direction's Louis Tomlinson Dies at 18
Félicité Tomlinson was found dead in her apartment in Earls Court, West London, on Wednesday. She was 18.
Following the announcement of her death, her brother Louis Tomlinson – One Direction singer – canceled his upcoming Comic Relief performance.
She collapsed from a heart attack, and one of her housemates called an ambulance, but paramedics could not revive the 18-year-old.

She was pronounced dead at the scene. Paramedics confirmed that a "full post-mortem examination and toxicology tests would be carried out."
However, authorities noted that no drugs were found at her apartment. The London Ambulance Service confirmed to News.com.au:
“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.”
I remember I use to be a pretty big fan of one direction and knowing that Louis lost his mom 2 yrs before and now losing his sister? I would lose my mind. I hope he and his family have courage and strength through this. It’s gonna be hard but I wish them the best.— Letty⁷ (@pizzcum) March 14, 2019

Even though Félicité suffered from sciatica – severe back pain as a result of a damaged sciatic nerve – she exhibited no other warning signs.
Despite her brother's fame, Félicité made a name for herself. She was a renowned fashion designer, even at such a young age, and had more than 1 million Instagram followers.
Félicité is survived by her father and six siblings, of which Louis is the oldest. His sister's death follows just two years after their mother passed away.
Back in 2018, Louis released a song titled "Two of Us," in honor of his mother. She was 43 years old when she lost the battle against cancer.
