Scott Disick did NOT go to rehab for substance abuse, he was there to work on 'his past traumas'
Scott Disick checked into rehab recently and many tabloids reported that the reality star had fallen into his old habits of drug and alcohol abuse. Disick has been vocal about his substance abuse in the past and 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' was a mirror for him to see how his life was being affected by the steps he was taking.
Due to Disick's substance abuse, his and Kourtney Kardashian's relationship was also affected. The show revealed that Kourtney was not happy with how Disick was behaving and her countless efforts to bring him back on track were not yielding any positive results. Fortunately, Disick realized that he needed to turn his life around and focus on things that mattered.
While it seemed like everything was under control, recent reports suggested that the reality star had checked into rehab as he relapsed into his old habits of substance abuse. Many used the news to highlight his long struggle with substance abuse in the past. However, Disick's lawyer has come forward and debunked the news.
Disick's lawyer Marty Singer revealed that he had checked into rehab to deal with the death of his parents. "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," the statement said, as reported by Fox. "He did not check-in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse."
To make things worse, a pic of Disick from rehab was leaked and Singer stated that legal action will be taken. "Shockingly as a result of the HIPA (sic) violation of the facility and his violation of privacy, he has checked himself out and is immediately returning home," read the statement. "We are alarmed by this extreme invasion of privacy and plan to take immediate legal action."
Disick had opened up about the loss of his parents in one of the episodes of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'. He had admitted that the loss of his parents had caused his a great deal of emotional turmoil.
