If it wasn’t clear before, it sure is now: Scott Disick is drinking again.
On Friday, TMZ reported that the 32-year-old reality TV star had been spotted in Punta Mita, Mexico, at pal Joe Francis’ place, surrounded by at least five women in bikinis. In his hand, Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend was holding a bottle of beer.
In their report about Scott Disick falling off the wagon, TMZ shared a 68-photo gallery of Scott Disick partying with his buddies in Punta Mita.
According to a source for E! News, “it’s very safe to say Scott is no longer interested in recovery.”
“He’s been drinking and partying for the last several weeks. This is what he wants. This is what he’s choosing. The friends he’s hanging out with aren’t helping.”
In November, Disick reportedly completed a 30-day treatment program for drug and alcohol abuse, and for a few months after, the self-proclaimed lord seemed to stay sober, despite doing promotions in clubs and attending shows put on by his buddy, Tyga.
But at the beginning of February, sources began to report that Disick was drinking again after he was spotted at a New York City club drinking beer. Then, on February 27, Kourtney Kardashian’s youngest sister Kylie Jenner posted suspicious videos of Disick to Snapchat. In those videos, Disick appeared to be under the influence while he made offensive statements. The videos were taken as Jenner and Disick hung out backstage at Tyga’s show on February 27.

Scott’s struggles with alcohol and substance abuse have long been documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but Disick didn’t seem to have an interest in changing his lifestyle until after he and his long-time girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian split back in July. Kourtney and Scott broke up after Scott was photographed getting cozy with ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli in the south of France.
Soon after the split, Scott appeared to go on a bender across Europe and the United States before he seemed to settle down and clean up his act a little bit. Media reports indicated that Disick wanted to clean himself up in order to spend more time with his three children, Mason, 6; Penelope, 3; and Reign, 1. At the time, it was reported that Kourtney refused to let Scott hang with their kids unless he changed his partying ways.
As a result, Disick checked into a rehabilitation facility in October and stayed for what is believed to be his longest rehab stint to date. In the past, Disick has had a history of checking into rehab facilities and leaving rather quickly — sometimes even on the same day.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, a source told Hollywood Life that Kourtney was “livid” about the Scott Disick-Kylie Jenner Snapchat videos, so it’s easy to guess that Kardashian is also unhappy with the photos of Scott holding beer posted to the TMZ website. According to Hollywood Life, Scott’s current behavior is exactly the type of thing that Kardashian wants to keep away from her three kids.
“Kourtney wants to support Scott as much as she can, but she won’t stand for this kind of behavior. It will always be a last straw for her, threatening him into good behavior by taking the kids away, but it’s getting to that point now where he is starting to revert back to his old ways.”
What do you think of Scott Disick’s most recent getaway to Mexico? Do you think it’s OK for Disick to be around alcohol, given his rehabilitation efforts and his history? Why or why not?
