Liam Payne issue emotional message after tour cancellations

Friends of Liam Payne have reportedly spoken out after the singer was rushed to hospital in Italy with “agonising” kidney pain.

The One Direction star, 30, was on a “downward spiral” after “struggling” during his time in the band and adjusting to the level of fame that came with it, it is claimed.

A source told The Sun: “It doesn’t come as a huge surprise — his lifestyle has been on a bit of a downward spiral for a while.

“Liam struggled so much in the band due to the heavy workload and being in the spotlight.

“He was just a normal lad before One Direction, so living life in this bubble felt alien to him and the restrictions really took their toll.

“His partying since the band’s break could well be a reaction to this.” 

It was reported on Tuesday that Liam, who shares son Bear with ex Cheryl, became ill during a trip to Lake Como with his girlfriend Kate Cassidy.

He was reportedly rushed to A&E in an ambulance in need of emergency treatment. He was then kept overnight and is expected to stay for several days, according to the aforementioned publication.

His hospital dash comes weeks after he was forced to cancel his first solo tour after being hospitalised with a serious kidney infection.
