Scott Disick Checked In And Out Of Rehab After His Photo Was Leaked

May 5, 2020 / Posted by:

Scott Disick isn’t just Kourtney Kardashian’s ex who keeps showing up on KUWTK and currently dates Lionel Richie’s daughter. He’s also a man with a complicated relationship with sobriety. 36-year-old Scott recently found himself on the wrong side of his sober journey and decided that it was time for an inpatient tune-up. And he would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for some meddling gossip inside his treatment facility, who allegedly leaked a patient photo of Scott to the press.

Us Weekly reported yesterday that Scott was at a “medical facility for rehab purposes” somewhere in Colorado, and that he had checked in on April 28th. Not long after they first reported on Scott’s stay, Us Weekly then reported that he had checked out of rehab. The reason has everything to do with how the news was first reported. The Daily Mail decided to break the news of Scott’s rehab stay by publishing a picture allegedly taken inside his rehab facility, along with his inpatient ID number.

The Daily Mail also claimed that Scott had been self-isolating in his home, due to the COVID-19 lockdown, and that he was keeping himself busy by doing tons of coke and drinking booze. He had also allegedly been struggling lately with his relationship with Kourtney, and his three children Mason, Penelope, and Reign. Scott apparently took a COVID-19 test upon arrival at the rehab facility, to ensure the safety of the other patients, and that he was quarantined in his room.

Scott’s lawyer Marty Singer spoke to TMZ and confirmed the news that Scott abruptly left rehab yesterday, and it has everything to do with that picture getting leaked. Marty says that Scott considers the picture to be a blatant HIPAA violation, and he is planning to sue the All Points North Lodge in Edwards, Colorado, where he was staying. The photo was most likely taken by staff, and not a fellow patient, which means this story could lead to criminal prosecution.

Marty also denies that Scott was in rehab for coke and alcohol. He says Scott was there to deal with the trauma of losing both his parents. Scott’s mother Bonnie Disick died in October 2013 after a long battle with an undisclosed illness, and his father Jeffrey Disick died suddenly in January 2014. Scott is an only child. Scott was quarantining by himself at home, and the time spent alone made him realize he hadn’t dealt with his parents’ death, and he needed professional help.

This situation isn’t exactly the kind of former client testimonial you want floating around the internet. The president and CEO of All Points North Lodge Noah Nordheimer spoke to TMZ, and he says he’s not cool with what happened:

“The protection of our clients’ personal and confidential information is of the utmost importance to us.”

Nordheimer says it’s strict APN policy to not disclose any personal info on patients, including whether or not a client is being treated there, and if it’s determined that “any information relating to any client was ever obtained from APN facilities and provided to a media outlet.” He says the APN Lodge team is “sickened by any publication who would report on an individual’s life struggles without their consent.”

Noah Nordheimer added that they’ll take legal action if it’s discovered that any client information was provided to a media outlet.

It would be remiss of me not to point out two moments in the most recent trailer for the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. At the 0:18 mark, Kim Kardashian reads a text from someone who is informing her that they have to go to rehab. At the 0:53 mark, Scott explains that he’s starting to, “get a little stir-crazy” in quarantine. Not to mention that on a recent episode of KUWTK, Scott talked about losing his parents, and that it wasn’t easy for him to talk about.

As much as this family lives for a publicity stunt, I absolutely don’t think it was the motivation for Scott’s rehab stay. Remember, this is someone who is Kardashian-adjacent, and no stunt, big or small, happens without Kris Jenner’s approval first. And there’s no way Kris would let a photo “leak” without it being aggressively Photoshopped.
