Louis Tomlinson Wanted to 'Throw the Towel in' After Mother's Death

Louis Tomlinson is opening up for the first time about how he felt upon receiving news of his mother Johannah Deakin‘s cancer diagnosis.

The 25-year-old “Just Hold On” singer admitted he wanted to just “throw the towel in” after she lost her battle to leukemia last month.

“When I first found out about the news, I did want to throw the towel in,” he told SiriusXM. “But it was [my] mum that said to me that I just gotta keep going. She told me very sternly that she wanted me to.”

“So I’m not doing it for her, but we’re doing it for each other,” he added. “It was tough, but I felt like it was nice for me to have a little send-off.”

See what Louis also recently had to say about his current relationship with his former One Direction band mate Zayn Malik here.
