Scott Disick is seeking help in his continuing battle with his demons.
According to People magazine, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star did recently check himself into rehab for treatment last Tuesday (April 28.)
“Scott entered a treatment facility last week,” the source tells the magazine. “He knew he was spiraling out of control and wanted to get help. He wants to be the best dad possible. Sofia [Richie] and Kourtney [Kardashian] both encouraged him to get help.”
Fans will recall that Disick shares three children with Kourtney Kardashian, and most recently has been dating Sofia Richie. And while he has dealt with cocaine and alcohol troubles in the past, his attorney Marty Singer says that was not the reason he entered rehab.
“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,” Singer told the magazine. “He did not check in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse.”
However, his stint in rehab did not last long, with Singer going on to say that he has left the facility now after a photo of him there leaked out to various media.
“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,” said Singer. “We are alarmed by this extreme invasion of privacy and plan to take immediate legal action.”
Here’s to hoping Disick receives the care he needs at this time.
