Scott Disick: Drinking ‘In Moderation?’ Disick ‘Thinks He’s Got A Handle On It’ Source Says

Scott Disick was recently spotted in New York City, causing fans and media outlets alike to question whether Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend has fallen off the wagon.

According to reports, Disick is in NYC for New York Fashion Week, though he notably skipped out on Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 launch. Instead, Scott Disick was spotted at Up & Down nightclub tossing a few back with rapper Fetty Wap.

According to a source for Hollywood Life, Disick thinks that drinking socially is no big deal.

“Scott has been drinking again, socially, rather than just getting off his head. But he thinks he’s got a handle on it. He can have two or three beers and not need to have any more. He’s trying to drink in moderation, and isn’t looking to get paralytic on wild nights out.”

Disick’s struggles with drug and alcohol abuse have been well-documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but as of late, it seemed that Disick had taken control of his substance abuse issues.

In October, Disick checked into a rehab facility where he reportedly spent more than 30 days before being admitted to an outpatient program. Disick is known for checking into rehab programs and quickly checking out again — sometimes staying only for a day — so a 30-day stint was a big step in a sober direction.

The issues associated with Scott Disick’s drinking all came to a head back in July, when Disick reportedly went on a bender across Europe. At that time, Scott was spotted getting awfully cozy with ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli which was a problem because, at the time, Disick was still dating Kourtney Kardashian. Kourtney promptly broke up with Scott.

In fact, Kourtney and Scott had been dating off and on for nearly a decade leading up to the incident, and together, the pair has three children: Mason, 6; Penelope, 3; and Reign, 1.

Initial reports indicated that Scott may have gone to rehab in an effort to clean himself up and win back his family — including Kourtney.

Rumors that Scott may have begun using substances again first circulated at the beginning of the week, when a report from Life & Style indicated that Scott Disick had overdosed on a dangerous mix of alcohol, cocaine, and Viagra. According to the report — which has not been confirmed — Scott was given a shot of adrenaline and taken to the hospital under a fake name after he was found by bodyguards unconscious in his home.

According to Hollywood Life, some of Scott’s friends are concerned about the fact that Disick has reportedly began drinking again, saying that he’s not in a great frame of mind to begin partying again.

“Scott’s pals don’t believe an addict should even be having one drink, especially since he’s so susceptible to his demons. They think he is rushing into his party lifestyle too soon after rehab.”

In the past, Disick has made a portion of his income hosting parties in clubs. The self-proclaimed lord has an affiliation with the 1Oak clubs, and on Feb. 13, Scott was seen at the New York branch of the 1Oak brand with Tyga and Kylie Jenner.

Scott and Kourtney have not reconciled since their July split, despite the fact that a multitude of reports have indicated that Disick would like to reunite with the mother of his children. If the recent news of Disick’s alleged overdose and social imbibing is true, it could be even longer before the lord gets back with his family.
