Tragedy has struck the family of One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson, whose sister Félicité Tomlinson was found dead at just 18-years-old on Wednesday.
E! News revealed the model, and social media influencer reportedly collapsed at her London apartment of a suspected heart attack. Metropolitan Police Service shared with the celebrity news site that London Ambulance Service called the police on Wednesday following the cardiac arrest of a young woman. When officers arrived, Félicité was pronounced dead.
“Police are in the process of informing her next of kin. At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained. A post-mortem examination will take place in due course,” read a statement from the police.
She may have been the younger sister of pop star Louis, but Félicité was building her empire. Despite being only 18-years old, she was making a name for herself as an influencer, with over 1.3 million followers on Instagram.
Félicité was very close to her all of her siblings, including her famous brother. The two were often spotted on each other social media accounts enjoying quality time together.
