One Direction’s fans were in for a huge shock when it was reported that Louis Tomlinson’s mother passed away a few days back. Her tragic demise came as a sudden blow to all the fans of 1D, and all hearts went out to Tomlinson.

The American rocker’s mom Johanna Deakin was fighting leukemia and silently went off to sleep forever on December 7 at the age of 42.

Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, and also the band’s co-creator and Guide Simon Cowell expressed their grief via social media. Talking about Louis Tomlinson’s mother, she would have turned 43 next week, but her leukemia was too aggressive. Zayn Malik wrote on Twitter,”Proud of your strength and know your mum is too.” Simon Cowell tweeted,”Heartbroken for you @Louis_Tomlinson. Your mum Jay was an incredible person. Sending you all my love.”

Tomlinson was getting ready to start his solo career when this tragedy occurred. The Sun cited an unknown source who said,”Louis is a brilliant songwriter and had not initially planned his own solo career. But he’s been back in the studio and has been working on some really amazing music. He’s played some to the powers that be at Syco, who are really excited.”

But that’s not it. Louis Tomlinson’s mom Johanna did leave a message for all the fans of her son. She left the message with her husband Dan, who posted it on her Twitter account a couple of days ago. It read,”Hi, it’s Dan. Johannah asked for me to send this afterwards. She wanted to thank you all, and to let you know that you have been amazing right from the start. You changed Louis’ life, but also her life. Your support now is as strong if not stronger than ever. So from Johannah one last time, thank you for everything xxx”.

Our heart reaches our to Louis. May his mom Jannah rest in peace, and may he continue doing her proud. Peace.
