One Direction star Louis Tomlinson’s mother Johannah Deakin has lost her fight with leukemia. The 43-year-old had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of the disease earlier in the year and sadly passed away last week. Tomlinson honored his pre-arranged appearance on the finale show of the British X-Factor–the show that made him famous and took the opportunity to sing his latest single “Just Hold On” as a tribute to his mother.
