He’s the villain in the Kardashian storyline. But people struggling with addiction are not just “baddies”.
How could he? What a horrible husband. He’s got little kids to think about! He just wants to party. He should grow up.
There is no doubt Disick has been on a hell of a bender before and since and that his drinking and drug-taking are at the core of their union’s demise. As are those unflattering photographs of him carousing with women, sitting in front of lines of racked-up white powder, swigging booze and generally acting like the indulged celebrity on the loose he is.
But here’s the thing: Disick, 32, is also an admitted alcoholic. He is also a diagnosed depressive who lost both his parents within a short period of time last year and had his intense grief served up as entertainment for millions of millions of Keeping Up With The Kardashians viewers the world over.
Anyone who has watched will be aware Disick is a man deeply in love with his partner and children, a man who wants to be a better father, partner and man. Over the show’s many seasons viewers have seen Disick tumble off the wagon on numerous occasions wallow in remorse and severe self-loathing following each and every time.
