Scott Disick is furious. The ‘KUWTK’ star has checked himself out of a Colorado rehab after learning a photo of him from inside the facility had leaked online.
UPDATE (May 4 — 7:40pm ET) A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that, “Scott checked out of the facility as soon as the news broke that he had checked in. That’s a huge violation of his privacy and why would he want to stay there when he feels that level of privacy has been broken.”
UPDATE (May 4 — 7pm ET): Scott Disick’s lawyer Marty Singer confirmed to HollywoodLife that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star did check himself into rehab on April 28, but he has since left the facility. Singer’s statement reads: “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.”
ORIGINAL STORY: Being under lockdown during the coronavirus epidemic had apparently unleashed old demons in Scott Disick, 36. He reportedly checked himself into a Colorado rehab facility on Apr. 28, according to a report by DailyMailTV. HollywoodLife.com reached out to his rep to confirm the news, but we did not receive an immediate response. Kourtney Kardashian, 41, Scott’s former partner and the mother of his three children, was the one who urged him to seek help, according to E! News. “It’s true. Scott checked in last week. He had a lot of guidance from Kourtney and she demanded that he get help.”
While Scott has made trips to rehab in the past including stints in 2014 and 2015, he seemed to have been doing better in the past few years with the support of girlfriend Sofia Richie, 21, and keeping busy with his reality shows Flip It Like Disick and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. In 2014, at the height of his partying days, Scott made an attempt at recovery by entering a Connecticut facility, however, he later checked out early. In the summer of 2015, Kourtney ended things for good with Scott, after he was spiraling with his drinking issues and was caught in compromising positions with ex-Chloe Bartoli. The split seemed to wake Scott up, as in October 2015, he checked into a Malibu rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.
Scott is still having problems coping with the loss of his parents within a 3-month span in the mid-2010s, a source told DMTV. His mom Bonnie died at age 63 after a long illness on Oct. 28, 2013. She passed away in a Long Island, NY hospital while Scott and then-partner Kourtney were by her side. Disick, who is an only child, was then blindsided in early Jan. 2014 when his father Jeffrey died, though Scott has never revealed his dad’s cause of death. It was especially traumatic losing his parents so close together, and not having any siblings to grieve with.
Scott revealed the ongoing heartache of losing his parents during an Apr. 30 episodes of KUWTK, which was taped in late 2019. He looked through his childhood photo album along with two of his children, Penelope, 7, and Reign. 5. The experience brought up painful memories for him, seeing his parents in happier times. “It’s definitely not easy, the fact that I don’t have my parents here. And I miss them a lot. But I think the more I talk about my parents, the more my kids will feel connected to them and remember them.”

“He looked pretty skinny and told the group he was coming to rehab to work on his issues,” DMTV‘s source told the show about Scott’s trip to rehab. “He told staff he didn’t want any special treatment during his stay, in terms of meals and therapy”.
The facility just opened in March amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Scott was put into a private suite and placed under a COVID-19 quarantine upon arrival, according to DMTV‘s report. He participated in his first meetings with other patients and staff via a remote camera. He was last photographed prior to his alleged rehab trip on Sat. Apr. 25, riding a bike along the shoreline in Malibu next to Sofia, who walked beside him.
