A rep for the singer confirmed to Us Weekly that 18-year-old Félicité, known to her mates as Fizzy, passed away on March 13, after suffering a heart attack and collapsing in her apartment in London.
The fashion designer was pronounced dead at the scene after an ambulance was called and paramedics were unable to revive her.
Following her tragic passing, her younger twin sisters, Phoebe Tomlinson and Daisy Tomlinson both took to Instagram to pay tribute to their late sibling.
“Words don’t even begin to describe how shocked and broken hearted we all are,”Phoebe wrote. “You were my best friend, sister, motivator and person that could make me laugh until I cried. I’m lost without you and the thought of never seeing you again scares me like you wouldn’t believe. I will love you forever and ever and you and mama will have a place in my heart until the day I die.”
She went on to discuss some of her cherished memories with her sister.
“Please tell me your watching over us and that you will always remember the way we all laughed together. Our memories will stay with me forever. We made so many. I remember me, Dais, Lotts and you all sleeping in the same room on two bunk beds and we’d chat all night about random things that made us giggle. You were the best at story telling. Mummy needed you and you desperately needed her. I’m so glad your together now and she has you to rub her feet in heaven like you used to. I pray that you’re in a better place now. We love you like you wouldn’t believe. Fly high my beautiful sister.”
Daisy shared a family photo from way back when and wrote: “This is the fourth time I’ve tried to write this. No words will come close to explaining how broken I am, once again. My precious sister. My heart is bleeding. I keep imagining and praying they have the wrong person. Not my sister, my best friend.”
“It was only a few weeks ago that we were sat on the sofa bed at 3am drinking tea, eating French fries and chatting about the future. You told me about all your plans. We were excited.
I pushed you away when you tried cuddling me, I thought I would have so many more chances to do that. I would cuddle you a million times over if you were still here, with me. Protecting me from this cruel world.”
Adding, “I can still feel your arms wrapping around my waist and your lips kissing my head. I can hear your voice. I want to hold you, keep you safe. Tell you how much you meant to me and how much I adored you. I’m frightened without you. You’ve left me feeling alone.”
She then discusses their mother Johannah Deakin who lost her long battle with leukaemia two years prior.
“Mama needed you. I hope you are happier up there with her. Make sure you don’t forget about us. Keep us in your conversations,” she said.
“I have two angels now, watching over me. I can’t wait to make you both so proud of me.”
