Scott Disick reportedly checked into a Colorado rehab facility on April 28.
The news was originally reported by the Daily Mail on Monday, and Us Weekly confirmed the news shortly after.
According to the Daily Mail, the “Flip It Like Disick” star had recently relapsed with alcohol and cocaine abuse.
According to his lawyer, however, Disick sought treatment “to work on his past traumas,” namely the deaths of his parents.
Lawyer Marty Singer also said Disick has now left the rehab center due to privacy concerns, and plans to sue after a photo of him inside the facility was leaked online.
After a brief stint in rehab, Scott Disick has now left the facility due to privacy concerns.
According to the Daily Mail, the 36-year-old “Flip It Like Disick” star entered a Colorado treatment facility on Tuesday, April 28 for alcohol and cocaine abuse.
The British outlet also reported that Disick was tested for coronavirus before he was allowed to join other patients at the facility Friday.
According to his lawyer Marty Singer, however, Disick sought treatment “to work on his past traumas,” namely the deaths 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,” Singer said in a statement to People. “He did not check in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse.”
Singer also revealed that Disick has since checked out of rehab — and plans to sue after a photo of him inside the facility was leaked online.
“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,” Singer said in his statement. “We are alarmed by this extreme invasion of privacy and plan to take immediate legal action.”
According to a report from TMZ, “Scott’s team believes the photo was taken by a staff member and not a patient, and that could trigger criminal prosecution. We’re told the photo was taken of Scott upon his check-in to the facility.”
An anonymous source told People that Disick was “spiraling out of control and wanted to get help.”
“He wants to be the best dad possible,” the source continued. “Sofia [Richie, his girlfriend] and Kourtney [Kardashian] both encouraged him to get help.”
Although Disick has seemingly been healthy over the past few years and remained a steady presence in the Kardashian family media cycle — particularly when it comes to parenting his three children with Kourtney Kardashian — he has openly struggled with the loss of his parents, who died just two months apart in late 2013 and early 2014.
“Losing my parents is not an easy subject for me to talk about,” Disick said during a recent episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” per Refinery29. “It puts me in a very vulnerable place, to remember them and think about them.”
Disick has also struggled with addiction and self-destructive behavior during his life in the public eye. He was previously treated in a rehab facility for substance abuse in 2015.
Representatives for Disick did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
