Louis Tomlinson 'Pulls Out Of Comic Relief' After 18-Year-Old Sister Dies

Louis Tomlinson has reportedly pulled out of his Comic Relief performance following the tragic death of his young singer, Félicité Tomlinson, on Wednesday.

The 18-year-old died after collapsing in her flat in West London from a suspected heart attack.

Former One Direction star Louis, 27, was due to perform his new singe 'Two Of Us' during tonight's Comic Relief, but he has understandably pulled out of the appearance.

'Two Of Us' is a tribute to Louis' mum, Johannah Deakin, who died in 2016, aged 43, from a year-long leukaemia battle.

"Louis is obviously distraught at the loss of his sister. He has cancelled all promo, which includes his performance on Comic Relief this week," a source told The Sun. "It's just the biggest tragedy and everyone wants to be there for Louis, who is the leader of his family since the loss of his mother and always there for all his siblings."

Tributes have poured in for Louis and his family following the tragic news from celebrities and fans alike.

"Such incredibly sad news today. You're not on your own in this @Louis_Tomlinson So many people are pulling for you and your family right now," comedian James Corden wrote on Twitter.

Olly Murs also tweeted: "Absolutely heartbreaking hearing the news of Louis' sister Félicité sending my love to him & all his family right now! Awful news."

Charlie Puth wrote: "Prayers to Louis Tomlinson. I can't imagine how hard it is right now. Love to you brother I'm so sorry and my prayers are with you."

A Met Police spokesman confirmed: "Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 12/52pm to a residential address in SW5."

The London Ambulance Service said: "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."

Our hearts go out to Louis and his family at this heartbreaking time.
