Update: 3:38 PM — According to sources close to Scott Disick, he has checked into treatment to deal with trauma from the death of his parents, NOT for drug or alcohol addiction or abuse.
Update: 4:13 PM — Scott’s lawyer, Marty Singer, issued the following statement — “In an effort to finally come to terms and deal with the pain that Scott has been silently suffering for many years due to the sudden death of his mother, followed by the death of his father 3 months later, Scott made the decision to check himself into a rehab facility last week to work on his past traumas. He did not check-in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse. Shockingly as a result of the HIPA violation of the facility and his violation of privacy, he has checked himself out and is immediately returning home. We are alarmed by this extreme invasion of privacy and plan to take immediate legal action.”
According to Dailymail, Disick has checked himself into a facility near Edwards, Colorado after the 36-year-old reality star began drinking heavily and doing cocaine during the quarantine lockdown.
The website claims Kourtney Kardashian’s Ex arrived to the treatment center last Tuesday, and because of COVID-19 was forced to Zoom into a meeting to introduce himself to people inside the facility.
As we reported, Scott was spotted with girlfriend Sofia Richie, on April 25 in Malibu riding bikes on the beach. The report claims Disick flew to the facility and checked himself in shortly after the weekend ended.
Scott has struggled with substance abuse and has received treatment for similar issues in the past. The reality star was very open about his struggle on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ and some of his intoxicated moments were featured on the show.
Scott has been struggling with trauma after both his parents died some years ago and in last Thursday’s episode of ‘KUWTK’ he discussed still struggles with their deaths, especially now that his kids have starting asking about them.
We broke the story, back in 2017 Scott was hospitalized after a call came into his home for a possible 5150 of the reality star. At the time, paramedics said Scott was non-violent when they arrived at the residence, then transported him to a local hospital.
In September of 2017, Scott began dating Lionel Richie’s daughter, Sofia, and seemed to clean up his act. The couple has been seen out on many occasions in Los Angeles and Scott appears to have been sober.
According to Dailymail, Scott appeared to be very skinny upon entering the rehab facility, and they claim he was suffering from some sort of withdrawal symptoms.
We have reached out to representatives for The Kardashians, so far no comment.
