Scott Disick told People Magazine this week that he wants to set the record straight about his stint in rehab earlier this month.
The reality star and professional partier says that a lot of people are accusing him of “bailing” on his stay at a facility in Costa Rica after he spent just one week there, but he says that was his plan all along, and that he’ll go back at some point.
“The funny thing is, a lot of people were under the impression that I was going to this rehab facility in Costa Rica for a month, when the truth was, I was going for a week for one treatment that they have there,” he said. “I’m not done. I plan to go back to this place…It’s beautiful and I love it, but I wasn’t able to spend three or four weeks there right now. I never planned on it, and everyone keeps telling me that I dropped out early. I wanted to actually Instagram or tweet a photo of my tickets that showed that I never intended to stay any longer than I stayed … I’m a work in progress and anything that I can do to better myself, I’m trying,” Disick said.
Disick and his reality-star girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, have long been at odds over his lifestyle, which includes getting paid to show up and host parties all over the country. Kardashian has even threatened to leave if he doesn’t get his act together.
“Who in the world thought that there would be a career based around that?” Disick said in a November episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons.
“And who in the world thought a drunk like you would take it upon themselves to make that their career?” Kourtney shot back.
Disick insists that he’s not done with the Costa Rican treatment and that he’ll go back because they use methods of memory regression that help the patient figure out why they abuse substances.
