Scott Disick's latest health update raises concerns
Good news for Scott Disick?
Kourtney Kardashian's longtime boyfriend (until recently) is out of rehab. The troubled reality star checked into Malibu's Cliffside rehabilitation center for his latest stint, reportedly for his drug and alcohol addiction. His check-in was preceded by his breakup with Kardashian and his friend Lamar Odom's near-fatal overdose last month, followed by reports that his family was growing increasingly concerned about his health.
"Scott is running off the rails," an insider told Us Weekly back in July. "He can't keep going like this. It's scary."
The source continued, "Kanye told him he needs to man up and go to rehab," and other sources have said Kardashian required Disick to clean up his act in order to be allowed to see their three children.
On Tuesday, Disick revealed he had checked out of rehab by posting a photo to Instagram showing himself boarding a private plane.
"Private aviation is my motivation," he wrote alongside the shot. It doesn't say where he was headed.
Disick has been in rehab for less than a month and this is his fourth stint in treatment. Just last year, he was hospitalized for alcohol poisoning. In March, he entered rehab for his addiction problems, but checked himself out after only a week in treatment.
Sources say Disick has been doing well this time around, telling E! News earlier this week that he’s "doing really well. He sounds happy, clean and clearheaded."
The insider continued, "I think he took it really seriously this time. He took a real break from work and partying to focus on himself. He hasn’t sounded this good in ages. He says he’s feeling great."
Still, with such a troubled history with substance abuse, we can’t help but wonder if Disick is, again, checking out too early, and some of Disick's followers seem to agree.
"You probably didn't finish rehab again, Lord Alcoholic," one commented on his shot, while another asked, "What are you doing out?"
