Louis Tomlinson’s Mom Dies at 42 After Battle With Leukemia

Louis Tomlinson’s mom has passed away. She was 43. Johannah Deakin died after a long battle with leukemia early Wednesday.

“It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday 7th December 2016,” a statement from her family reads. “Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukaemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private.”

Deakin would have been 43 next Friday. In addition to Louis, Deakin leaves behind six other children, Lottie, 18, Felicité, 16, twins Daisy and Phoebe, 12, and twins Ernest and Doris, 2, whom she gave birth to in 2014.

Tomlinson was previously scheduled to perform on The X Factor Saturday, and it looks like the 24-year-old singer reportedly is going to keep his commitment in honor of his mother’s final wish.

Louis’ band members tweeted out their support for him.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Louis and his family.
