Reality star, Scott Disick checked into rehab last week but has since left because he felt “betrayed” that his photo at the treatment center was leaked to the press with false claims.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who shares three children with Kourtney Kardashian, had been staying at the All Points North Lodge in Edwards, Colorado since last Tuesday, but after his photo was leaked online several outlets reported that he was seeking help for substance and alcohol abuse problems.
Disick’s attorney, Marty Singer has denied the claims, saying the 36-year-old checked into rehab due to the ongoing grief he’s felt following the deaths of his parents in 2013 and 2014.
“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 says. “He did not check in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse.”
Singer also revealed that Scot plans to take legal action against the facility for the photo leak.
“Shockingly as a result of the HIPAA 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,” he adds.
Disick and Kourtney Kardashian dated on and off for years after they first met in 2006. They have three children together, Mason, 10, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 5, and finally parted ways in 2015.
But E! News reported that Scott who is currently dating model Sofia Richie had “lot of guidance” from Kourtney, who encouraged him to get help.
