Things are getting scarier for Scott Disick and his family. With Scott refusing to stop his partying, it feels like it’s just a matter of time before something bad happens — can Kourtney save him before it’s too late?
Kourtney Kardashian, 36, is reportedly so worried about former love Scott Disick, 32, going off the rails with his excessive partying that she’s plotting something big. She wants to file a psychiatric hold on Scott in order to protect him before he hurts himself, or even more terrifying — loses the will to live.
Scott has been on an insane bender since Kourtney ended their nine-year relationship, and there’s no sign of him stopping anytime soon. His friends and family are starting to worry for his life now that his wild behavior has gotten worse, according to a report from InTouch Weekly. Kourtney and the rest of her family are allegedly ready to take drastic measures to protect the father of her three children.
“Scott is spiraling out of control with booze and drugs. He doesn’t seem to care if he lives or dies,” a family friend told InTouch. “Kourtney and her family are concerned that he’s going to hurt himself, so Kris is talking to one of their attorneys about having Scott involuntarily committed to a psych ward. It’s the only thing left to do.”
What a terrifying ordeal for everyone involved. If the Kardashians are as scared about Scott as the report alleges, then something very serious is going on that must be addressed. In order to get Scott the help they reportedly feel he needs, they’re required to file a 5150 hold, which could commit him to a mental-health facility for 72 hours against his objections, according to a psychologist who spoke with the magazine. For this plan to work, Scott has to show that he’s “a danger to himself or others.”
If Lord Disick doesn’t want to get help, then Kourtney is ready to make him face the music. With reports of his continued drug use and binge drinking plaguing the reality star, it might be time to take action — especially if Scott wants to have a relationship with his children.
“Kourtney doesn’t want Scott back, but she doesn’t want their kids to grow up without a father,” the source claimed. “he’s going to hate the Kardashians for doing this to him, but Scott could die if they sit back and do nothing.”
We hope dearly that Scott gets the help he needs. HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Scott should be committed to a psych ward? Tell us in the comments and take our poll.
