Louis Tomlinson has an incredible support system! Hot on the heels of One Direction’s adorable reunion, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned why the handsome fellows showed up to support their bandmate. This answer will make your heart melt!
We’re not crying — YOU ARE! There was so much emotion behind Louis Tomlinson‘s, 24, outstanding X-Factor finale performance, so it’s a good thing the guys of One Direction were there to show support. “The words that Simon [Cowell] said on the telecast ring true to what they feel about Louis’ performance,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They are proud of him, and they know his mom would be proud as well. They all love the song and strength he showed. It was magical.” Can someone pass the tissue box?
As if we weren’t bawling hard enough already, it breaks our hearts to say that Louis’ mom tragically passed away on Dec. 9. Johannah Deakin was 43 years old when she lost her battle to leukemia, and there’s talk that the crooner’s new single, “Just Hold on” featuring DJ Steve Aoiki, is a tribute. Just look at the heavyhearted lyrics — So what do you want them to say when you’re gone? / That you gave up or that you kept going on? What do you do when a chapter ends?
What’s interesting, though, is that Zayn Malik was a no-show at the reunion on Dec. 1o. After Louis’ show, the boys of 1D (including Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan) stepped out Cirque Le Soir club in London, with Zayn completely missing from the action. But maybe, it was all for the best! “There is still quite a lot of animosity between Zayn and the rest of the gang, and it was actually a good thing he wasn’t there,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Save the drama for another time!
HollywoodLifers, isn’t it so sweet that the guys of 1D showed up to support Louis?!
