Shirlaine Forrest/WireImageSad news for Louis Tomlinson and his family. Billboard confirms that the singer’s 18-year-old sister Félicité Tomlinson has died.
The model and influencer, also known by her nickname “Fizzy,” suffered an apparent heart attack at her West London studio apartment Wednesday afternoon. An ambulance responded to the scene but paramedics were unable to revive her.
Sources connected to the family told TMZ Félicité showed no warning signs and had no prior history of heart trouble. In October, she revealed she had been suffering from sciatica -- back pain caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve.
Louis reportedly pulled out of his scheduled performance at the BBC charity show Comic Relief Thursday night. He has yet to address his sister’s death publicly.
The loss comes just over two years after their mother, Johannah Deakin, passed away at age 43 after a battle with leukemia. Last week, Louis released a song, “Two of Us,” as a tribute to his mom.
Louis is the oldest of seven siblings.
