Scott Disick is, to be honest, a complete and total mess right now.
Since the beginning of this year, he’s been on a seriously scary downward spiral — one that apparently has friends concerned that he’s on the verge of killing himself.
Killing himself with booze, to be specific.
From where we’re sitting — and things could have happened differently privately, of course — the issue began back in January on the Kardashian family vacation to Costa Rica.
Before that, we’d been hearing rumors that Scott and Kourtney Kardashian may have been rekindling their romance, but for some reason, he brought along another girl for the vacation.
He tried to hide the girl in his hotel room, but Kim Kardashian found out about it, and she went off on Scott, calling him a whore and all sorts of other bad names.
He left the vacation early and went to Miami, where he was photographed with multiple women and multiple adult beverages.
And things just sort of went from there.
Scott’s been seen with countless hookups since then, including Bella Thorne, and it’s clear that he’s just not in a good place.
He’s been open about his issues with alcoholism in the past, and in response to the Costa Rica incident, he even confessed that he’s a sex addict.
But in a new interview with E! News, he’s trying to spin things in a more positive light.
“I would say I think it’s a little rude that everybody keeps addressing me as a sex addict,” he said. “I just like sex, but I’m not a sex addict.”
“I said that in a humorous, joking fashion on the show and now I’m getting billed as one, and it’s not the case. I do like sex, but I am not an addict.”
He was asked if he thought his appetite for sex was healthy, and he clarified that he does have “a gargantuan appetite,” but still, he’s “not an addict!”
Whatever you say, Scott. We’re sure all single fathers of three young children behave this way.
Oddly enough, when asked about his love life, he said “I just try to live and be decently happy … no girlfriends or anything like that.”
No girlfriends, just a never-ending string of hookups, right?
He also seemed to confirm Bella Thorne’s statement that she was never intimate with him by explaining that “We have nothing to do with each other romantically.”
As for Kourtney, he said “We love spending time together and with the kids. That’s never been a question.”
“I feel like sometimes the outside perspective thinks that maybe we are not on good terms, but we are. We stay strong for our three children, and that’s pretty much all we can do.”
He sounds good in this interview, but then again he’s never been one to be sloppy in interviews.
He usually saves it for paparazzi and Keeping Up with the Kardashians cameras.
Just … just do better, OK, Scott?
