It looks like Louis Tomlinson is done with interviewers asking him about his mom and sister’s tragic deaths. The One Direction member slammed a talk show host for bringing up their sad passings during an interview on Monday, February 3.
“[Definitely] wont be going on there again! Love to all my fans for always having my back,” he wrote on Twitter hours after making an appearance on BBC Breakfast.
When the talk show host asked the singer what bothered him about the interview, he replied, “I was upset that you continued to ask me about my grief. It goes without saying how hard it is to lose both people so close to me. The least I ask is that you respect my decision of not wanting to be asked in interviews about something so painful.”
“I’m lucky enough to have a creative outlet for me to talk about grief. This doesn’t, however, give you the right to talk about it for gossip purposes,” Louis continued.
As fans know, the “Walls” crooner’s 18-year-old sister, Félicité, passed away suddenly in March 2019 after suffering from an accidental overdose. Her tragic death came just two years after he lost his mom, Johannah Deakin, to cancer.
During the interview, Louis told the hosts, “I’ve only just released my first album, that’s what I’m here for,” after they continuously asked him how he dealt with the grief of losing two of his family members. They also brought up his relationship with former 1D bandmate Zayn Malik.
“Wow, you’re proper going in here today, aren’t you?” he responded. “People pick up on every little thing I say. Look, I’m just not ready to have that conversation, and that’s fair enough.”
For those who forgot, the “Pillowtalk” musician and the 28-year-old got into a big Twitter fight after Zayn left the band in 2015. While speaking to Metro in October 2019, Louis admitted that he’s still mad at Zayn for some of the negative things that he said about his time in the band.
“At the moment, I am still pretty mad about the whole thing. I don’t think [Zayn] handled it very well,” he said. “He chatted a lot of s**t in the early days. I thought One Direction [was] pretty good.”
