Louis Tomlinson Opens Up About Coping With His Mother's Death One Year Later

Next week, it will have been one year since Louis Tomlinson sadly lost his mother, Johannah Deakin, to cancer.

The “Miss You” singer spoke with Metro earlier this week about how he’s doing a year on and how her legacy still lives in him.

Louis revealed that before going on stage at the Royal Variety Performance a couple of weeks ago, he had “a little word with myself.”

He adds, “I think, ‘I have got to make her proud.’ It’s those things that really keep me going. It’s been a crazy 24 months and a hell of a lot to deal with for someone of my age.”

“Enormous tragedies affect people in different ways. I’m lucky that my mum brought me up to be pretty thick-skinned. There is never any time in my job to sit and feel sorry for myself. I always want to keep going and keep fighting,” he shared.

Louis continues, “At times it is as difficult as it possibly could be…It genuinely makes me a stronger person and creatively it gives me so much depth. I think I am coping as well as I could do, to be honest.”

This weekend, Louis will return to The X Factor stage for a performance of “Miss You” — something he did last year with his debut single, “Just Hold On” a week after Johannah had passed.
