Louis Tomlinson's Mom Johannah Dies After Leukemia Battle

Such sad news – Louis Tomlinson‘s mother Johannah Deakin has passed away at the young age of 42 following a battle with leukemia.

The 24-year-old former One Direction singer’s family released a statement to confirm the tragic news.

“It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday 7th December 2016,” the statement read.

“Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private,” the family added.

Johannah was the mother of seven children – Louis, 24, Lottie, 18, Felicite, 16, 12-year-old twins Daisy and Phoebe, and two-year-old twins Ernest and Doris.

“Johannah was first and foremost a truly amazing mother to seven children – Louis, Lottie, Félicité, and two sets of twins, Phoebe and Daisy and Ernest and Doris – whose individual talents and success are testament to the principles and beliefs she instilled in them,” Dan Deakin said in a statement (via The Sun).

“She was also an incredibly proud grandmother to Freddie. Incredibly selfless, she would always look to put other people before herself. She desired nothing more than for everyone around her to be happy and loving. She worked tirelessly on numerous charity campaigns, creating memories for many individuals and their families,” he continued. “It wasn’t uncommon for Johannah to hear through the media of an individual in need of assistance, and she would immediately make it her objective to get that person what they often desperately needed, and rarely without success.”

“These are the things that made Johannah happy and content in life, and all of which for me made her simply the perfect wife and best friend to face each day with. I thoroughly loved walking through life with her, and though five years was far too short a time, during that time we had so many lifetimes worth of happiness, adventures, and memories,” Dan added. “We would like to send our sincere thanks to Professor Steve Mackinnon and his team at University College London Hospital where Johannah was hospitalised since May. And during the last few weeks Professor John Snowden and his colleagues at Royal Hallamshire Hospital Sheffield.”

    Incredibly sad, she was so young. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

  • plez

    Oh she had lots of kids. So sad.

  • Be kind to one another.

    Way too young. R.I.P.

  • xyz

    Dumbass she never heard of contraception. Now kids pay the price for her idiocy.

  • Kelly

    Wow, you are a disgusting piece of trash. So she shouldn’t have had children because someday down the road she MIGHT be diagnosed with cancer? What an idiotic statement.

  • rilla

    what the hell. what a disgusting comment.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Like your Mom did when she had you. Apparently she didn’t use contraception and being an idiot…had a pathetic soulless hypocrite. You. Don’t pass judgment or judge til you take a long, good look at yourself. And going on your pathetic post you don’t have the right to do so. Now, hide behind your moniker and come at me… Since it is apparent you know everyone and how they lived…like for example, this young man’s Mom. I look forward to your judgment call of me. And I will also pray you never face something like this…heaven forbid.
