The alcohol poisoning that landed Scott Disick in hospital – although it made news today – actually happened June 23.
TMZ.com elaborates, Scott went to a nightclub in The Hamptons (where the family is filming Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons), on June 22. He was binge drinking hard liquor all night, to excess, getting very drunk. He became so disoriented with alcohol poisoning, he thought he’d been drugged. He went to the ER at Southampton Hospital, where tests revealed the truth.
Sources add, he’s been in counselling ever since (probably to cope with the drinking and the sudden loss of both parents within weeks of each other) and he’s doing much better.
“The alcohol poisoning was definitely not a stunt for the TV show,” a source insisted. “It wasn’t filmed.”
The insider tells us what we already know, “Why didn’t they film him going to the hospital after a night of drinking? A lot of the scenes in the Kardashian shows are scripted, but this situation wasn’t planned.”
“He’s not where he was last month when he went to the hospital for alcohol poisoning,” the source said. “Physically and mentally, he has turned it around.”
“He is doing so much better,” the source continued. “He is going to the gym and counseling trying to get better.”
Since getting alcohol poisoning, Scott’s been scared straight. “He decided to change because he hit bottom and wanted to get better… He just hit a wall between the [third] new baby, the traveling for Europe, the filming and being back home in New York with his old friends. It all just hit him.”
According to multiple sources, he’s seeking counsel from Kim’s pastor, Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr..
Will Kourtney leave Scott, following apparently staged scenes in which cameras see her “kick him out of the house”?
The source claims, “I think Koutney loves him and would do anything to help him get better, but she also needs to look out for her kids. Still, I personally don’t think she would have left him [even if he hadn’t changed]… Scott made the decision to change. He did it himself. Going to the hospital is usually a sign to stop.”
