the Keeping up with the Kardashians The lawyer for the star, Marty Singer, released a statement denying that 36-year-old Disick was battling addiction before entering the Colorado treatment center.

“He has not checked for alcohol or cocaine abuse,” said Singer’s statement. “Shockingly following the HIPAA breach of the facility and his privacy breach, he checked himself in and went home immediately.
“We are alarmed by this extreme invasion of privacy and plan to take immediate legal action.”
The father of three entered the facility on April 28 after quarantining himself in Los Angeles during the coronavirus pandemic.
Disick’s mother Bonnie Disick died in late 2013 at the age of 63, and her father, Jeffrey Disick, died less than three months later.
During a recent episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Disick spoke of the loss of both parents and the emotional damage it caused him.
“Losing my parents is not an easy subject for me to talk about,” said Disick. “It puts me in a very vulnerable place to remember and think about them.”
In the same episode, the Flip It Like Disick star met his father’s best friend and they went through old photographs together.
“I think when my parents died, it was too difficult to talk about it,” said Disick. “Even though I dreaded looking at a few photos because I thought it would bring out sad memories, I’m glad Dave brought them with him. The truth is, it made so many amazing memories and things that I forgot. “
