Felicite Tomlinson, the sister of former One Direction singe Louis Tomlinson, has died at the age of 18.
Felicite, a fashion designer and model, is thought to have collapsed after suffering a heart attack in her West London studio apartment. Scotland Yard said police were called by London Ambulance Service at 12:52 on Wednesday 13 March. Paramedics were unable to revive her and Felicite was pronounced dead at the scene, it had been confirmed.
“A female believed to be aged 18 was pronounced dead at the scene,” a statement said.
It added: “A post-mortem examination will take place in due course.”
The model, and social media influencer who was also known as “Fizzy,” had been suffering from ‘sciatica’ which is extreme back pain caused by nerve irritation.
The loss comes around two years after the Tomlinson family lost their mother, Johannah Deakin, died after her battle with leukemia. Tomlinson recently released a song which was heavily influenced by the grief he suffered and included lyrics such as “I’ll be living one life for the two of us.”
Talking about the track, Tomlinson told Radio 1 Newsbeat: “It was something I needed to get off my chest.
“I used to lean on my mum for a lot of things – anytime I needed advice on something she would be the first call I made.”
