Los Angeles: Singer-songwriter Liam Payne, who was holidaying with his girlfriend in Italy, was rushed to hospital with 'agonising kidney pain'. The former 'One Direction' star was reportedly in Lake Como, Italy to celebrate his one-year-anniversary with girlfriend Kate Cassidy. Recently, the singer was forced to cancel a tour owing to his health condition.

Sources say he's in a 'bad way' but was being helped by Kate after the ordeal at a lakeside property after the weekend. As per '', doctors will reportedly carry out 'every test possible' in a bid to get to the bottom of Liam's ongoing health issues.

"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," an insider told 'The Sun'.

"Naturally he is gutted that his and Kate's trip to Lake Como has been ruined. But at least she was there to help him when he fell ill. Doctors have warned him not to expect to be signed off to go home for at least another six days. They want to do every test possible to understand the issue fully but they now suspect that there has been an underlying issue for a while that has been getting worse," they added.

It comes just weeks after Liam cancelled his tour in South America after suffering a 'serious kidney infection'.

He was forced to call off his performances after being rushed to hospital for the first time in August.
