The teenage sister of One Direction star Louis Tomlinson died accidentally after taking a lethal cocktail of drugs, a coroner has concluded.

The 18-year-old aspiring fashion deisgner was pronounced dead inside her London flat on March 13th this year after taking a "perfect storm" of cocaine, Xanax and oxycodone.

Coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe, recorded a verdict of misadventure, saying: "It was a ideal storm, the oxyCodone, the alpraxolam (Xanax) and cocaine".

The inquest heard that Miss Tomlinson had taken cocaine, MDMA, acid and cannabis in the past and knew a number of people who could access these drugs.

"I find no evidence this was a deliberate act to end her life".

Members of her family were in court to hear the verdict, but singer and X Factor judge Louis, 27, did not attend.

Louis's agony was laid bare in the inquest as his multiple attempts to get her clean were revealed, with the star often accompanying her to doctor's appointments.

After some persuasion, Felicite completed a successful stint in an Egyptian rehab facility in Autumn 2018 and tested clean on her return to the United Kingdom on November 26, but she relapsed in 2019.

But she left rehab early after getting drug free in November past year - once again getting in touch with friends who took drugs with her.

In a statement, her GP Dr Paul Eulinger said the 18-year-old "refused to give up drugs in the knowledge they could kill her". "You saw [Felicite] do more lines but you didn't know how many she did".

Mr Tomlinson added: "Felicite had huge hopes and aspirations for her future, a lot of which were beginning to come to fruition at her untimely passing".

Felicite moved to London to develop her career in fashion and social media projects.

Felicite, also known as Fizzy by her friends, was diagnosed with ADHD, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, an eating disorder and polysubstance abuse while in rehab in Egypt.
