News broke yesterday that Scott Disick checked into rehab at a facility in Colorado, though he quickly left after a photo of him was leaked online. Although it was reported by some sources that he chose to pursue treatment for substance abuse issues, Disick's lawyer later clarified that he was there to work on emotional issues.

"In an effort to finally come to terms and deal with the pain that Scott has been silently suffering for many years due to the sudden death of his mother, followed by the death of his father 3 months later, Scott made the decision to check himself into a rehab facility last week to work on his past traumas. He did not check in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse," his lawyer Marty Singer confirmed in the statement. And according to a source for E! News, Scott made the decision to go to rehab thanks to the efforts of his girlfriend Sofia Richie and his ex Kourtney Kardashian.

Scott had been reportedly struggling with the ongoing quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Sofia became "extremely concerned with the choices he was making and how out of control he became very quickly." The insider added that Sofia contacted Kourtney, who confronted her ex. "Kourtney was very upset, and knew something was up by his unresponsiveness to matters and convos that pertained to the kids," the source explained. "She had been through this before many times, and put a halt to it immediately. She ultimately gave him an ultimatum and he had no choice but to seek help."

Even if the former couple aren't together anymore, it's great that Kourtney was able to work together with Sofia to get her ex some help. Hopefully Scott is on track to feeling better!
