The sister of One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has reportedly died, aged 18.
Félicité Tomlinson was found dead after suffering a suspected heart attack in her apartment in West London, according to The Sun.
Attempts to resuscitate the aspiring fashion designer were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
The tragedy comes just years after the siblings lost their mother, Johannah Deakin, to leukaemia in 2016.
“We sent two ambulance crews, a single responder in a car and an advanced paramedic to the scene,” the London Ambulance Service said.
“Sadly, despite efforts of our medics, a person died.”

According to TMZ, Louis has pulled out of a performance on a BBC charity show, Comic Relief. He was due to perform his new single ‘Two of Us’, a tribute to his mum.
The X-Factor judge, who is described as being incredibly close with his younger sister, was “devastated and distraught” at the news of her death, a family source told the publication.
“Félicité was an absolutely adored young woman who was loved by Louis and her whole family,” a source close to the family told The Sun.
“They are all totally devastated, as you can imagine… she was a loveable, caring, bright, passionate, popular and beautiful young lady.”
Félicité, who has more than 1.3 million followers on Instagram, had recently announced plans to release her own clothing line ‘Fizzy’, which she had passionately promoted on social media.
A report is being prepared for the coroner.
More to come.
