Louis Tomlinson speaks out for first time after sister’s death

Felicite Tomlinson died in March.

Louis Tomlinson has broken his silence for the first time since the tragic death of his sister.

Felicite, an Instagram influencer with over 1 million followers, died at her flat in London last month from a suspect cardiac arrest. She was just 18-years-old. Her death came only two years after the death of his mother Johannah Deakin, who passed away in December 2016 after a battle with leukaemia.

Posting on Twitter, Louis wrote: “Just wanted to thank everyone for their lovely words over the past couple of weeks. Back in the studio today to vocal something I wrote a few months ago. Sending you all loads of love x.”

Responding to the tweet, former One Direction bassist Sandy Beales wrote: “Sending love to you and the family mate! Great to hear you are back in the studio :).”

Another fan said: “You know we will always wait for you. take your time, no need to rush, don’t worry about us too much. we’re ready when you’re ready 🙂 love you x.”

The singer was previously inundated with messages of condolence – with the likes of James Corden and Charlie Puth paying tribute after the death of his sister.

Tributes also came from Yungblud, who hailed her as a “big role model” after the pair grew up together in Doncaster.

“All I can say is she was taken too soon,” he said. “She was from the same place that I was from so I just want to send all my love to the family. She went to school with my sister and was very close to one of my best friends, it was a bit of a shock.

“She came to support me before I was even Yungblud, she was so supportive. I grew up with her and it’s so sad.”

A family source previously told The Sun: “Felicite was an absolutely adored young woman who was loved by Louis and her whole family. They are all totally devastated, as you can imagine. She had so many friends and was such a positive happy person.

“It’s a massive loss to the world. She was a loveable, caring, bright, passionate, popular and beautiful young lady.”
