The latest "American Idol" winner will undergo surgery today, reports TMZ.com. As previously reported, Phillip Phillips had eight operations during the show, as he suffers from chronic kidney problems.
Phillips has a congenital kidney problem that means he has kidney stones that are too big to pass through his system, the story says. His recovery from surgery may take as long as six weeks.
An unnamed executive from "American Idol’s” production company has offered his home to Phillips and his parents during the recovery time, the piece adds.
