Sources said Tomlinson was notified of his sister's death Wednesday night. The singer and his family are said to be devastated and Tomlinson has canceled his upcoming appearances to mourn.

"At this stage the death is being treated as unexplained. A post-mortem examination will take place in due course. Enquiries continue," the Metropolitan Police Service said.

TMZ said Félicité collapsed from a heart attack at her studio apartment Wednesday in London. Someone at the apartment called an ambulance, but Félicité was pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics arrived.

Sources said Félicité had no warning signs or known prior history of heart trouble. The teenager was an aspiring fashion designer and had more than 1 million followers on Instagram.

Félicité was one of Tomlinson's six siblings. The Late Late Show host James Corden was among those to voice their sympathies for the singer online.

"Such incredibly sad news today. You're not on your own in this @Louis_Tomlinson So many people are pulling for you and your family right now," he tweeted.
