Although it might seem like Scott’s vow to get back into rehab has been influenced by the tragic news of Lamar earlier this week, it actually looks like more of a coincidence. A source speaking to People says that Scott checked in at the rehab centre last weekend – and probably doesn’t even know about Lamar’s condition.

According to the source, Scott’s decision to go back to rehab – after three unsuccessful stints in the past – is that he wants to be a better father to his kids with ex-girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian: Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 10 months. ‘He wants to make it stick this time because he has come close to losing everything,’ said the source.

The star’s alcohol addiction began after the loss of both his parents in 2013 and 2014. It’s had a turbulent effect on his family life, contributing to the breakdown of his marriage with Kourtney and his relationship with his children.

As Lamar struggles for his life in hospital, we are glad to hear that Scott is seeking well-needed help for his condition. Let’s hope that determined Scott manages to to turn his life around.
