Louis Tomlinson’s desperate plight to save sister Félicité before fatal overdose09/11/2019
Louis Tomlinson made numerous attempts to save his sister Félicité before she tragically died of an accidental drug overdose, at the age of 18 in March.
An inquest into Félicité's death heard how Louis took his sister to appointments at a drug addiction clinic and supported her as she went to rehab in Egypt.
Félicité is said to have fallen into a depression and started abusing drugs following the death of their mother Johannah Deakin in December 2016.
Félicité troubles were known to One Direction star Louis, with the pair sharing a very close bond.
The teen had even moved from Doncaster to London to be closer to her older brother and to pursue a career in fashion.
The siblings were often spotted hanging out together in the capital.
An inquest into Félicité's death today, heard how Louis had taken his teenager sister to an appointment at the private OAD drug addiction clinic.
The pop star attended the clinic with Félicité on September 4 – a day after she had failed to turn up for an appointment there, the hearing was told.
Professor D’Agnone, medical director of the clinic, told the inquest: “I spoke with her brother and he had advised that there should be a family member to check on her.”
Félicité was later admitted to a hospital intensive care unit after a drug overdose and taken to the acute mental health unit at Nightingale Hospital.
She was then transferred directly to an airport and flown to spend two-and-a-half months at the Alexandria hospital rehabilitation centre in Egypt until November.
During her time in rehab, Félicité got drug free and was diagnosed with ADHD, PTSD, borderline personality disorer, an eating disorder and poly-substance abuse, the inquest into her death heard.
But Professor D’Agnone said after she returned to the UK for Christmas, Félicité got back in touch with people who took drugs with her against medical advice.
He said Félicité later called into his clinic “extremely anxious” saying she hadn’t been taking her prescribed medication on February 2.
A month later Félicité took an 'accidental overdose' at her West London apartment.
Her horrified school friend Zainab Mohammed found her lifeless body in bed after they had bought and taken cocaine the night before.
Ambulance crews rushed to the address but despite extensive efforts, Félicité could not be resuscitated and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A Coroner ruled that Félicité died of “misadventure” after taking a "perfect storm" of drugs.
Louis did not speak out about the tragedy, but weeks later thanked fans for their messages of support.
