Louis Tomlinson was crushed when his 43-year-old mom Johannah Deakin passed away due to leukaemia in December 2016. And now - 18 months later his dad Troy Austin revealed he is suffering from cancer. 

Troy Austin confirmed this tragic news while having a chat with U.K. newspaper.

Troy is currently estranged from the One Direction star and in his interview, he revealed that he has had a tumour removed as he has a four-hour long surgery after being diagnosed with liver cancer. Troy blames himself for his shocking diagnosis.

He said, "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 [fries]." Louis also lost his grandmother in March 2017, who died of cancer.

Troy Austin abandoned his son Louis and his wife Johannah when the pop star was just a week old but now wants to reconnect with his son and fix the rift between them. In his interview, he also stated, "As for Louis, if he ever wanted to make contact then I would be happy for that to happen."

But Louis is not a fan of his man and any hopes of reconciliation seem unlikely as she made that fact clear. In 2013 a British newspaper published an interview of Troy pleading for a chance to reconnect with his now-famous son. 

In his interview, he stated, "Of course, I would love to see him again and have a proper relationship with him. What dad wouldn't? But it's up to him." To which Louis tweeted a swift response, "I'd like to start off the day by saying a big f*** you to ‘the mirror."

But now as his dad's health has worsened, hoping he changes his mind!
