The One Direction star has been rushed to hospital with a ‘serious health issue’. 

Liam Payne, 30, rose to fame as a member of the boy band One Direction in 2010 after entering the British TV series The X Factor.

He’s gone on to have a solo career, having released tracks such as ‘Strip That Down’.

Last month, Payne announced that his highly-anticipated concerts would be rescheduled and it’s now been revealed he’s receiving medical treatment.

The ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ singer is being treated at a hospital in Italy, where it is expected he will remain for around six days.

The One Directioner was reportedly on a trip to Lake Como in Italy with his 23-year-old girlfriend Kate Cassidy when he was rushed to the medical facility in ‘agony’ with a ‘serious health issue’.

Doctors are believed to be investigating the recurring problem.

A source claims to The Sun: “Liam is in a bad way but he’s in the best place he can be and finally doctors will be able to get to the bottom of what is going on.

“Doctors have warned him not to expect to be signed off to go home for at least another six days.”

Many of Payne’s fans have taken to social media and wished the star well, hoping that he gets better soon.

“Manifesting that Liam Payne will get better soon,” one fan pens.

Another adds: “If Liam Payne isn’t OK I will be crying wherever I am in college.”

Somebody else writes: “If Liam is not OK, I am NOT OK.”

Last month, Payne took to Instagram and shared the difficult news that he had been forced to cancel his tour of South America.

He said in a video to fans: “Over the past week I’ve been in hospital with a serious kidney infection. It’s something I wouldn’t wish on anyone, and doctors’ orders are that I now need to rest and recover.

“I was beyond excited to come play for you guys.

“To all of you who have bought tickets: I’m so sorry.”

Earlier this year, Payne also revealed that he had spent 100 days in a Louisana rehab facility and that he now has ‘more of a grip on life’.

The singer opened up about his time touring with One Direction before their split and how he would often empty mini bars.

“I just needed to take a little bit of time out for myself actually because I kind of became somebody who I didn’t really recognise anymore,” Payne told fans.
