Scott Disick was recently found checking in and then checking out from a rehab facility. Now he’s planning to take legal actions for breach of privacy.
According to reports, Scott Disick’s privacy was breached after photos of him checked in at All Points North Lodge in Edwards, Colorado leaked.
The photos were released by the press without his consent. He quickly checked out of the rehab facility upon learning of the betrayal.
“He feels so betrayed and badly burned by what happened. It was a complete violation of his privacy, and he is tentative about trusting another rehab. He is beyond disappointed and upset about it,” a source told E! News.
He is now back in Los Angles, but his team says that they are going to take legal action against the perpetrator.
Noah Nordheimer, president and CEO of the rehab facility, has already spoken about the issue. He said that his team is aware of the leaked photos of Disick. He then stated that they treat clients’ personal and confidential information with the utmost importance.
He also said that the APN Lodge team is “sickened by any publication who would report on an individual’s life struggles without their consent.”
Disick’s team believes that the photo was taken by a staff member of the facility upon his check-in. It is still to be determined who is responsible for the reckless act.
Why did he check in at the rehab?
Disick’s lawyer Martin Singer confirmed that his client did go to the facility to seek professional help. However, contrary to previous reports, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star did not go in for drugs or alcohol issues.
Singer said that Disick came in to address underlying emotional issues rooting from his parents’ deaths. He was quarantining all by himself, and it made him think about how he has not properly processed his grief.
The reality TV star has been silently suffering from the pain of his mother’s sudden death, followed by his father’s death just three months later. Martin said that Disick sought help in dealing with his past traumas.
It has been noted though, that it’s not Disick’s first time to be in rehab. His history shows that he has been in and out of rehab at least three times due to substance abuse.
Support from the girlfriend
Disick may no longer be married to Kourtney Kardashian, but he isn’t alone at the moment. He is currently in a relationship with model Sofia Richie. Sources say that she has been supporting her 36-year old boyfriend’s recovery.
Richie was the one who urged Disick to get help. She also, reportedly, reached out to Kardashian to help him with his struggle. Scott Disick and Richie have been dating since 2017.
