An Unnamed Person That Was With Her at the Time Called Emergency Services
While it’s unclear exactly what happened to Felicite, it has been reported that she had a heart attack. She was with an unidentified person when she suffered the heart attack and that person called emergency services.
The Sun reports that paramedics tried to resuscitate her but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
“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,” a Met Police spokesman said in a statement.
Police were called to Felicite’s apartment to check for any suspicious activity. According to The Sun, it is “understood” that no drugs were found.
Louis Is Said to Be Devastated & Has Canceled an Upcoming Appearance
The Tomlinson family is completely devastated after learning of Felicite’s death. According to TMZ, Louis is with his family at this time. He was scheduled to appear on the BBC charity show, Comic Relief, on Friday night, but has canceled the appearance in light of recent events.
Louis has not yet released a statement about the passing of his sister. Although he is one of seven kids, he and his sister were very close.
Louis Lost His Mother in 2016
This is the second time that tragedy has struck the Tomlinson family. According to People Magazine, Louis mom, Johannah Deakin, passed away in 2016 after a battle with leukemia.
“It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday, Dec. 7. Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private. Johannah was first and foremost a truly amazing mother to seven children – Louis, Lottie, Félicité, and two sets of twins, Phoebe and Daisy and Ernest and Doris — whose individual talents and success are testament to the principles and beliefs she instilled in them,” Deakin’s husband Dan Deakin said in a statement. “She was also an incredibly proud grandmother to [Louis’ son] Freddie,” the Tomlinson family said in a statement at the time.
