In a bid to turn it all around, the deflated Scott Disick has entered rehab for alcohol and drug treatment, and has capitalized on this turnaround by gaining a contract with Dollar Beard Club, thereby selling the rights to his well-trimed facial accessory.
The Keeping Up With Kardashians reality star has made his Instagram account accessible after blocking some of its content before his checking into rehab on November 5. A recent meeting with Kris Jenner means his return to the reality show is imminent.

Called letthelordbewithyou on Instagram, Scott Disick has three children with Kourtney Kardashian: Mason, 6, Penelope, 4, and Reign, 11 months. From his anger issues, as played out on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, to his tumultuous relationship with Kourtney’s sister, Khloé Kardashian, Scott Disick has battled drugs and alcohol throughout the ups and downs of life in the Kardashian Court.
Scott’s profound turnaround might be linked to the Lamar Odom tragedy. Khloé Kadashian, who has always had a strained relationship with Scott, filed for divorce from Lamar in Dec, 2013. In July of this year, the finalized agreement of the split had been made, but Lamar suffered a stroke at a brothel in Las Vegas, Nevada just a few months later.
After being comatose for four days, the former NBA player woke up, and Khloé called off the divorce on October 21.
These events seem to have had a “wake up” effect, as Kourtney has recently expressed that she would be “serious” about considering taking Scott back.
A family friend is reported to have confirmed her intentions to Radar Online.
“Kourtney said that Scott is turning back into the man she fell in love with again… The breakup was a wake-up call to Scott. Scott and Kourtney are attempting to work it out… He is making a sincere attempt this time, and so is she.”
What were the problems?
The temper and alcohol of Scott Disick are of course a factor, as clearly seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians television show, but the real seriousness of the matter was expressed by Kourtney who reportedly called on celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser for her expertise on high-profile splits.
Rather than the booze and drugs being the main factor, however, it was the fact that pictures emerged and were published by The Mirror showing the 32-year-old “getting very hands-on with his former flame Chloe Bartoli” that made Kourtney furious at Scott.
Nevertheless, whether it’s due to recent tragedies or just a need to be accepted again into the Kardashian Court, Scott Disick is showing he can attempt to acknowledge his weaknesses and this has, it appears, appeased Kourtney and the Kardashian Court.
Family tragedy has haunted not just the Kardashians, but Scott himself lost his father in 2014, less than three months after his mother died.
The last ten days has seen a dramatic shift from a fall from grace philanderer to a man battle hardened by the co-experience of grief.
- October 07: Kris Jenner says she believes jail would be the “best thing” for Scott, as his behavior and addictions spiral out of control.
- October 13: Lamar Odom found unconscious at a Pahrump brothel in Nevada.
- November 5: Scott Disick checks into Rehab on the heels of Lamar Odom’s hospitalization.
- November 14: Scott Disick meets with Kris Jenner to negotiate a continued spot on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Terms discussed are the primary stipulation that he remain sober. Scott appears determined to do this, as reported by Radar Online.
“Scott told Kris that he is willing to do whatever it is she wants in order to remain a part of the show.”
It seems that all is on the mend and, as usual, the result of Scott Disick’s most recent efforts to change for his family will be played out on future episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
