Will.i.am has spoken out about suffering from tinnitus as a result of his attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Former Black Eyed Peas performer Will.i.am suffers from the illness which causes people to hear a constant ringing sound in their head.

 When speaking on Visionaries, Will.i.am spoke candidly about his condition;
 
 "Alot of kids have that ADD, whatever you want to call it, attention disorder."

"I just figured out a way to get my attention disorder in order.

"I don't know how to stop, I don't know how to slow down. It's not escape, it's just order. And the side effect is tinnitus."

Confirming his condition, he went on to say: "Do I have tinnitus? Hell yeah I got tinnitus. All day everyday. Can't sleep? Turn up the TV, gotta' drown out my tinnitus."
