One Direction star Louis Tomlinson's 18-year old sister Felicite has died after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest.

Her death is now being treated as "unexplained" at this stage, but it's suspected the cause of death was cardiac arrest.

Tomlinson, who was a social media star in her own right with almost 1.3 million Instagram followers, was reportedly found unconscious at her apartment in Earls Court, West London on Wednesday, according to The Sun.

Louis, 27, who was said to be very close to his younger sister, was informed of her death on Wednesday night.

It read: "Absolutely heartbreaking hearing the news of Louis sister Felicite sending my love to him & all his family right now!" The "Attention" singer sent his love and prayers.

Louis is yet to react publicly to the tragic news but according to British newspaper The Sun the singer is "devastated and distraught" by the loss of his sibling who was "lovable, caring, bright and beautiful". She had over one million followers on her Instagram account and was considered a social media influencer.

Emergency services were called to her West London apartment on Wednesday afternoon after she appeared to have suffered a cardiac arrest, but they were unable to save her.

Her last post came just four days ago.

Following her death, Tomlinson released the song Just Hold On - his debut solo single - in her honour, and he performed it on the X Factor just days later.
