Scott Disick recently checked into a rehab facility in Colorado in the US, but less than a week later has left and returned to Los Angeles after the centre allegedly leaked a photo of the reality star online.

The 36-year-old had not checked himself in to deal with any substance abuse issues, which he's struggled with in the past, but instead to deal with the ongoing trauma of losing his parents.

His attorney, Marty Singer, said in a statement to People: "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 three months later, Scott made the decision to check himself into a rehab facility last week to work on his past traumas. He did not check-in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse."

He added that Scott is taking legal action against the facility after they allegedly leaked a photo of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star in a Zoom group meeting. "Shockingly as a result of the HIPAA violation of the facility and his violation of privacy, he has checked himself out and is immediately returning home. We are alarmed by this extreme invasion of privacy and plan to take immediate legal action," he said.

A source also told the publication: "He [Scott] knew he was spiralling out of control and wanted to get help. He wants to be the best dad possible. Sofia [Richie] and Kourtney [Kardashian] both encouraged him to get help."

According to E! News, an insider shared that "Kourtney won't allow him around the kids unless he gets treatment", which resulted in the star checking himself into the facility on Tuesday last week.
