Louis Tomlinson’s mother, Johannah Deakin, died of leukemia early Wednesday morning. She was 43 years old.
Fans and friends of the One Direction member are now using Twitter to show their support during this sad time.
On the social media site, Liam Payne sent a long, emotional message to his bandmate. “Louis, my brother, I’m so sorry.
I feel terrible for you. Just know that I love you the same whether I’m next to you or a million miles away. I will always be there for you, just like you have been for me.
At this very sad time, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have no idea what you’re all going through. “Rest in peace, Johanna. You’ll always be in my thoughts.”
Cheryl, who used to judge on X Factor and is now dating Payne, also sent her best wishes.
Niall Horan, another member of the band, also tweeted his condolences. “It’s very sad. I love you, Louis, and we’re all here for you the whole time.
Your mother was a wonderful person. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts. From my family to yours, with love.”
He also got a nice message from ex-1D member Zayn Malik, which was a sweet reminder that their friendship is still strong even though they no longer work together.
Tomlinson’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son Freddie, Briana Jungwirth, posted her own message on Instagram.
“My heart is hurting. I see Freddie in you, Jay, every time I look at Freddie. I’ll never forget the times we spent together and the talks we had…
I want to be Freddie’s mother just like you are. “I promise to tell him everything I know about how beautiful you are,” she wrote. “Both of us loved you a lot. You’ll be close to our hearts forever.”
Simon Cowell, a media mogul, is the host of X Factor and the person who came up with the idea for One Direction. Ex-Wanted member Nathan Sykes and British pop star Ollie Murs also sent words of comfort.
Félicité, who is Tomlinson’s sister, posted a picture of a broken heart, which was the most touching message.
As her last wish, Tomlinson, who is 24 years old, will appear on The X Factor on Saturday as planned.
A source said that Deakin, who works as a midwife, was looking forward to Tomlinson’s performance on the stage where he and his One Direction bandmates first became famous.
Tomlinson decided to go through with the performance in her honor.
