London: Black Eyed Peas star Will.I.Am admits he has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (Adhd).

The 38-year-old hip-hop star, who has opened up about his condition for the first time, said he faces a constant battle with concentration issues and struggles to compete simple everyday tasks, reported Contactmusic.

"I have Adhd. I`ll admit it... I`ve got all this stuff in my head at the same time as I`m doing stuff and I don`t know how to stop or slow down. But it`s all good because I know how to control it.

"For every obstacle there`s some type of solution. So if you have Adhd it`s your passion point. One thing I learned about Adhd is that it`s hard to keep your attention and you can`t sit still and you`re always moving and thinking about a whole bunch of things," he said.
