American Idol’s Phillip Phillips Receives Medical Treatment

Oh, no! After slaying his Stevie Wonder performance last night, Season 11 finalist Phillip Phillips suffered a setback. According to TMZ, he was rushed in for medical treatment this morning.

Insiders shared that the Idol contestant was suffering from serious abdominal pains. Although we don’t know for sure what caused them, there has been speculation that he could have kidney stones. A source from Phillip’s previous job spilled that a similar problem led him to be hospitalized in January.

Poor guy! Fortunately, Phillip has recovered, and said he was feeling fine at tonight's elimination results show. Last year, Casey Abrams was forced to skip an elimination show when he was being treated for abdominal pains of his own.
