Troy is the father of Louis Tomlinson. Troy and his ex-partner Johannah “Jay” Poulston welcomed Louis on 24 December 1991, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. Johannah was 18 years old at the time Louis was born. Troy left Johannah and their son, Louis. At the time he left, Louis was just a child. Louis didn’t have a relationship with his biological father Troy.

While Louis is estranged from his father Troy, he is very close to his mother Johannah who died of leukemia in December 2016 at the age of 43. The family said in a statement:

“It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday, Dec. 7. Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private.”

Troy Austin is said to have “threatened to drop a bombshell” in an attempt to get back into his son Louis Tomlinson’s life, according to the Daily Mail. Troy had his hopes up at the time Louis was expecting a child with Briana Jungwirth. He thought that would bring him and Louis together. Troy hadn’t spoken to Louis since they argued during a phone call.

A source said: “Troy has always wanted to repair that relationship – but if Louis isn’t prepared to do so, he’s told a few friends he has something which would really throw a grenade into things. He sees it as his final shot at getting Louis’s attention, and he’s said he will drop the bombshell if he feels it’s the only option he’s got left, even though it would come as a massive shock.”

Troy Austin Was Diagnosed With Cancer In 2018

Louis Tomlinson’s estranged father, Troy Austin was diagnosed with liver cancer in May 2018. He underwent a four-hour surgery to remove a tumor, according to The Sun. He had blood tests which revealed the cancerous tumor on his liver. In an interview, Troy said: “The staff have been brilliant. The doctors are amazing and the nurses are hilarious, they really lift your spirits every day.”

“The NHS might get criticised in some quarters but I have had a great service. I believe my tumour was down to drinking and smoking. I can’t blame it on anything else. Each day I was smoking up to 25 cigarettes and drinking six to eight cans of Tyskie, a Polish lager. And my diet was terrible. It was Chinese and Indian takeaways and a lot of chips,” Troy added.

“Some days I wouldn’t eat at all but would just drink and smoke. I would drink to celebrate the good times and drink to cope with the bad. Whatever life threw at me I would drink. And there was stress. The stress of my mum dying in March last year and my dog Okee died five days before Christmas.”

“I had lived with him for 14 years and anyone who has had a dog will know how hard that has been. I am just so happy that I was diagnosed early.” A 1½in tumor was removed for Troy at Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital. He said: “The crazy thing is I didn’t have any symptoms. I went to the doctor about something else and just had this idea of asking about blood tests.”
