The 23-year-old divulged it took years before he was even diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder:

"[Growing up] I was pretty wild. I could never focus, couldn't get a handle on where my brain wanted to go. I was constantly getting in trouble. Once, when I was at Tong High School, I was collared for a BB gun in class. It wasn't loaded or anything, but me waving it around didn't go down too well. I was later diagnosed by doctors as having super-hyperactivity—or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) as they like to label it."

Who knew??

Among his other admissions, the LIKE I WOULD singer also shared it was his mom who helped him make the decision to leave the famous boy band. He explained:

"I was spiraling down into a very unhappy, very unhealthy place. I needed to reconnect with my family and feel some normality again. Finally, it was my mom who gave me the reassurance I needed to go with my decision. She said, 'If it doesn't make you happy, just don't do it.'"

YOLO, right??
