A source said:
He’s in a classic shame spiral right now. He knows he’s screwing up, and he knows what he needs to do. He has people telling him to go home and work things out, to stop this behavior, to repent and to move forward. But he’s not doing it.
“He’s operating out of fear and shame right now. He’s not seeing things clearly.”
Scott has been in and out of rehab, so it’s clear he’s been struggling with addiction for quite a while. He reportedly went on a bender soon after the birth of his third child, Reign.
Scott himself explained it this way:
I definitely go in and out of happy and dark places in my life, and I wish that I could be a little more consistent, and I wish it was a little bit easier for me to be under control, but it’s not.”
The source said this about the current situation:
He’s just making things worse and worse, and what’s worse is that he knows that he’s making it worse and worse. His head knows that he needs to leave, and that every minute that he’s there, he’s doing more damage to himself and his family, but until he really takes that to heart, he’s not going to make a change.”
Very true. He and Kourtney Kardashian reportedly aren’t speaking right now: he didn’t return several of her messages, and when he finally did call her, she didn’t call him back. Something tells me all of this is playing out before the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ cameras, so we’ll get a lot of details on what, exactly, is occurring in the upcoming season.
It’s sad when you consider that there are three small children caught up in the middle of all this drama, however. It won’t be long before their oldest son, Mason, starts to be aware of what’s going on. What then?
