Jacques O’Neill: I was so angry with my mum for telling the world I have ADHD

OHMYGOSSIP — Former ‘Love Island’ star Jacques O’Neill was “so angry” at his mum for revealing he had ADHD.
The 23-year-old reality star quit the ITV2 dating show in July after admitting he wasn’t feel himself, following the Casa Amor stage of the programme, when he smooched one of the newcomers, despite being coupled up with Paige Thorne.
A few days before his departure, Jacques’ family revealed he was diagnosed with ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) as a child amid the backlash over his treatment of Paige.
Jacques has now admitted he nearly deleted the social media post telling the world he has ADHD, but it has ended up being a positive in his life.
Speaking on ‘Good Morning Britain’, he said: “When I got out, I was so ready to delete that, but I was so angry with my mum. I was like, ‘Why have you put that out? It’s looking like an excuse for my behaviour.’
“With me I’m very like … I deal with everything, it’s not about ADHD. We struggle, people with ADHD will understand me, we struggle a lot different to someone without ADHD.”
The rugby league player admits he was scared after being inundated with “so much hate” and death threats.
But since his mum spoke out about his diagnosis, Jacques has been overwhelmed by messages of support from fellow ADHD sufferers, who have dubbed him a “role model” and an “inspiration”.
He added: “When I first came out, it was very different for me. I was scared, very scared of life and what was to come next for me.
“When I was in that holding villa after I left, I just wanted my mum, all I wanted to do was just be with my mum and just go into hiding. I was getting so much hate, me and my mum were getting death threats and everything.
“I started getting loads of people contacting me and saying I’m an inspiration with the ADHD side and a bit of a role model.
“I was getting fully grown men messaging me saying, ‘Love you, you’re an inspiration,’ I was overwhelmed with it all.
“If it wasn’t for the people supporting me or giving me that love, I’d be in such a bad place, I can’t thank them enough really.”
