It was worrisome when Scott Disick failed to show up to daughter Penelope’s birthday for the second year in a row. But Scott actually had a noble reason for not attending!
Scott Disick, 32, wasn’t in the Bahamas when his little girl, Penelope Disick, turned 4 on July 8. It was especially concerning, knowing that he hadn’t shown up to her third birthday, either. But Scott wasn’t being a bad father by not going on the tropical vacay with his family, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY; he was doing it to protect his family!
“Scott didn’t go to the Bahamas because he is trying to take his sobriety seriously and a tropical vacation would be a massive trigger for him,” the source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He wouldn’t be able to help himself, and he knows he would start drinking on the plane.”
“Then once he was there, it would be Piña Coladas on the beach the whole time,” the source continued. “The family would all go out for a nice dinner, and after that he would be bar hopping until 3:00am. Physically being there for Kourtney and his kids would actually end up in him ruining their trip. In the past his AA sponsor has advised him to avoid ‘people, places, and things that trigger him.’ Vacations are a big one.”
Wow! Scott is really owning up to his problems and maturing. This time last year, Scott was fighting serious demons. He ruined his nine-year relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, the mother of his three children, by cheating on her with ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli, 25. He finally addressed his drug and alcohol problems once and for all, entering rehab in Fall 2015. He’s been on the straight and narrow ever since, and this just proves his commitment!
Plus, Scott’s got a special birthday surprise in mind for little Penelope once they’re back together. How about having a daddy-daughter day at the happiest place on earth — Disneyland!
