Scott Disick Breaks Silence: “I Never Said” I Wouldn’t Drink Or Party Again
Scott Disick is breaking his silence about falling off the wagon again.
As Gossip Cop has reported, Disick went to rehab last fall after his latest struggle with alcoholism. He seemed to be remaking a renewed commitment to living a sober lifestyle. And he said on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” that part of the motivation was wanting to be a good dad for his three children with ex Kourtney Kardashian.
But in the last few weeks, Disick has been seen drinking again. Most recently, he was photographed partying in Mexico. Now, after flying to Las Vegas on Friday to hang out at the night club 1Oak, he gave an exclusive interview to People candidly discussing his penchant for partying and time in rehab.
“The truth is, I never lied and said that I was never going to have a beer again. I never said I was never going to have a cigarette again,” Disick says. “I never lied and said I was never going to go to the beach again. I never lied and said I was not going to be around my friends and their girlfriends and girls and friends.”
He refutes the idea that he’s on a “crazy mission of destruction,” and uses his unattached status to defend time in Mexico with “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis. “I was down there hanging out like any other single 32-year-old guy would be,” Disick says, pointing out that while photos show him with a bevy of women, other men were there as well.
Disick goes on to say that, regardless of his rehab treatment, which he claims was mostly for an addiction to sleeping pills, he can’t bring himself to stay away from the club scene. He explains, “The truth is, I just to live my life and I want to have a little happiness and a little balance. The truth is, rehab did help me and now I’m just trying to be responsible. I’m not out here trying to get wasted, but you know what, I will have a beer on the beach.”
“I’m not doing drugs, I’m not doing anything insane, so I think people just need to relax… I just want to try to live my life,” Disick says, further arguing, “I’m not sure I can stay home every single night at 32 years old and be sane. In the end, I’m trying to live my life. I’m trying to live it healthy. I’m trying to be there for the people I love, which is Kourtney and kids, but you know what, we’re not together.”
The controversial reality star adds, “I’m single and I’m trying to keep my mind off of things… At the end of the day I think people just need to understand that I have never lied about anything about myself. I am who I am. I do what I do, and enough is enough.”
And despite concerns for his well-being, Disick insists he’s “totally fine,” telling People, “I drink responsibly. I have a couple drinks with my friends when I’m out just like anyone else. At the end of the day I just want to fit in and I just want to be treated like anybody else and I don’t want to be beat up every day.”
Kardashian last publicly commented on Disick in January, saying on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that they were “totally getting along.” She hasn’t spoken out since he began publicly drinking again in early February, but was seen hanging out with him on more than one occasion over the last few weeks. Just hours before Disick’s interview was released, Kardashian wrote on Twitter, “A smile hides my pain, a hug masks my heartache, and a laugh covers my tears.”
On Saturday morning, a fan tweeted to her in reply, “Pain makes you stronger, fear makes you braver, heartbreak makes you wiser.” She responded, “God knows it’s true. I would never change a thing. Positive vibes always.”
