Louis Tomlinson Makes First Public Comment Since Death Of Younger Sister Félicité
Former One Direction heartthrob and X-Factor judge Louis Tomlinson has broken his silence after the death of his younger sister, Félicité Tomlinson last month. As previously reported, Louis’s 2019 got off to a tragic start when his little sister, with whom he was very closer, unexpectedly died from a heart attack mid-March. Though some reported it was drug-related, those rumors remain unsubstantiated.
Louis’s other sisters, Daisy Tomlinson and Phoebe Tomlinson reacted on Instagram shortly after Félicité’s death, but Louis Tomlinson has been on a social media hiatus while he copes with his grief, and the singer dropped out of a concert he had been scheduled to perform at on March 15th.

this is the fourth time I’ve tried to write this. No words will come close to explaining how broken I am, once again. My precious sister. My heart is bleeding. I keep imagining and praying they have the wrong person. Not my sister, my best friend. it was only a few weeks ago that we were sat on the sofa bed at 3am drinking tea, eating French fries and chatting about the future. You told me about all your plans. We were excited. I pushed you away when you tried cuddling me, I thought I would have so many more chances to do that. I would cuddle you a million times over if you were still here, with me. Protecting me from this cruel world. I can still feel your arms wrapping around my waist and your lips kissing my head. I can hear your voice. I want to hold you, keep you safe. Tell you how much you meant to me and how much I adored you. I’m frightened without you. You’ve left me feeling alone. Mama needed you. i hope you are happier up there with her. make sure you don’t forget about us. keep us in your conversations. i have two angels now, watching over me. i can’t wait to make you both so proud of me.

Words don’t even begin to describe how shocked and broken hearted we all are. You were my best friend, sister, motivator and person that could make me laugh until I cried. I’m lost without you and the thought of never seeing you again scares me like you wouldn’t believe. I will love you forever and ever and you and mama will have a place in my heart until the day I die. Please tell me your watching over us and that you will always remember the way we all laughed together. Our memories will stay with me forever. We made so many. I remember me, Dais, Lotts and you all sleeping in the same room on two bunk beds and we’d chat all night about random things that made us giggle. You were the best at story telling. Mummy needed you and you desperately needed her. I’m so glad your together now and she has you to rub her feet in heaven like you used to. I pray that you’re in a better place now. We love you like you wouldn’t believe. Fly high my beautiful sister 👼🏼
Now, Louis is ready to speak, and has thanked fans for all the kind words during the difficult last month. He reports that he’s back in the studio — but confirms that he’s finishing up a song he wrote a while ago and therefore, not one related to his most recent family tragedy.
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

One Direction fans will remember that Louis’s mother died a year after the band went on hiatus in late 2016, and a recently released interview said that all of his bandmates — with the exception of Zayn Malik — banded together to help Louis get through it. We can only hope that Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Harry Styles were able to help their close friend through this tragedy.
