Louis Tomlinson’s mother, Johannah Deakin, lost her battle with Leukemia and fans, friends and otherwise quickly jumped in to offer support and love. Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Simon Cowell and many more were among the first to send well-wishes to their friend in mourning. Louis broke the social media silence Saturday afternoon to thank everyone for their kind words during this difficult time.
Louis’ tweet appears to be in reference to a performance on “The X Factor” finale. Steve Aoki confirmed a new duet with the former One Direction member as well as a debut performance on the show. The track is called “Just Hold On!” and is rumored to be a tribute to Louis’ late mother.
While Harry Styles is the only One Directioner to have remained silent, rumor has it that he is currently in the audience for the “X Factor” live finale. Twitter users also claim that the entire boy band, including Zayn, have all arrived to show their support.
