Scott Disick‘s battle with addiction nearly resulted in the end of his life. Now Kris Jenner is reportedly doing what any parental figure would:
Exploit it and turn it into a dramatic reality TV storyline!
On August 18, Scott was placed on a 5150 psych hold after being rushed to the hospital, apparently having suffered a massive breakdown.
The 34-year-old dad of three has been spiraling out of control for years, especially since breaking up with Kourtney Kardashian in 2015.
Despite multiple trips to rehab, and a health incident that sounds as scary as it can get, Disick continues to party hard even as we speak.
That's what has Kris Jenner scrambling to save his life.
With the cameras rolling of course, because come on.
Says an insider close to the famous Momager:
“Kris wants to stage an intervention for Scott, and wants to do it on-camera to be used in the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
Hey, if the guy needs an intervention anyway ...
Lest you think that Jenner is interested in only ratings here, the insider says she is obviously interested in more than just ratings here.
“She is also trying everything she can to get him into rehab. She wants Scott to be there for her grandchildren," says the source.
"Kris knows that if he keeps going, he will die."
“His drinking has ruined his life, his relationship with Kourtney and his friendship with Khloe," laments the insider. "It’s really sad.”
That much is obvious, as is the fact that the guy could use someone - something - to knock some sense into him, cameras or not.
Will this actually do the job, though?
This is not a man who has been open to change before, even as his health deteriorates and his dependence on alcohol persists.
“Scott started using drugs and alcohol as a way to escape from his problems," an unidentified friend of Scott's told Radar Online.
“However, the more he continued to drink, the worse his other problem became,” which is where this story gets even more dire.
People close to Scott say he poses a danger to himself, not because of erratic behavior, but because of life-saving medications.
Or, specifically, refusing to take them.
For months, we've heard whispers that Disick is suffering from liver disease attributed to years of heavy drinking, culminating this summer.
As such, the medication that Scott needs is necessary due to the self-destructive fashion in which he has chosen to go about his existence.
This, another friend says, was why he ended up involuntarily hospitalized a month ago, and why the worst may be yet to come, scarily.
“Kourtney [Kardashian] and Scott know that the incident was caused by him not taking medications that he is prescribed,” says one insider.
She and Kris Jenner reportedly called the police when they realized that Scott had gone off his medication while continuing to drink.
Knowing he was a danger to himself and others, authorities placed him under a 72-hour psychiatric hold, the longest allowable by law.
Disick reportedly resumed taking his meds after that, though he also kept drinking, leaving family and friends praying he comes to his senses.
