Reality star Kourtney Kardashian is reportedly worried about her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick concerning his substance addiction.
However, that feeling may have been reinforced after news broke Tuesday that former NBA player Lamar Odom was rushed to the hospital and is reportedly on life support due to multiple organ failure.

In an exclusive by Hollywood Life, Dr. John O'Dea said that the basketball star's condition is "not looking good", and that he has already suffered multiple strokes since he has been taken to a Las Vegas hospital. Meanwhile Kourtney is with her sister Khloe, Kim Kardashian-West, and their mom, Kris Jenner, as they monitor Odom's condition.

(@KUWTK) October 14, 2015For Kourtney, this tragic situation could be a wake-up call to seek help for Disick, 32, who has been suffering from drug and substance abuse as well.
The self-proclaimed "Lord Disick" and Kardashian's relationship has been up and down through the years in relation to his addiction. In previous interviews, Kourtney revealed that her sisters often tell her to move on.
However, when Disick was spotted getting comfortable with his ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli in a supposed boys party in Europe in July, Kardashian broke up with him, and Disick was ostracized from the clan.
Nevertheless, Kourtney said that she still loves him and worries about his health.
"I love Scott, but I've been dealing with this for so long, it's definitely not good for me," she said in an interview. "At this point I'm really just trying to focus on me and the kids and make them the priority."

His mother, Bonnie, died in October 2013, while his father, Jeffrey, passed away in January 2014.

In spite of his drug and substance abuse, as well as his hard partying habits, Disick appeared on a preview of the 11th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. He admitted that he had made the worst decision in his life and that he wanted to get back with the family, particularly with Kourtney.
"It's been a really hard time going from, like, having all of you guys to having nobody," Disick said in a confrontation with Kourtney and her mom Kris. "I f----d up. I made the worst decision I could've ever made in my life."
The next season of KUWTK will begin in November, although it is still unclear whether Disick will make it to the show. Recently, Kardashian's ex-bf has entered a drug rehabilitation center in Malibu, probably to clear his head and try to become a father to his three kids once more.

Odom used to hang out with Disick when he was still married to Khloe.
Scott Disick has been in and out of rehabilitation facilities since March, when he entered a rehab center for hallucinogenic treatment. He also entered a Florida facility in July.
For Kourtney Kardashian, this could be the best time for Disick to change his ways and get his life back on track again. She obviously wants her children – Mason, Penelope, and Reign – to spend more time with their father.
