Chris Brown Getting Sober With Scott Disick?
Author: Justin Mckibben
Imagine my surprise at seeing the infamous Lord Disick in one of the newest Chris Brown music videos! When did these guys become best buds? Apparently since their most recent attempt at getting sober!
If you’re in recovery- have you ever become friends with someone in recovery that you never expected? In 12 Step fellowships there is a part in the literature about how “we are people who would not normally mix” and in a great sense this is all true. As the recovery community across the country has continued to expand beyond the old school AA/NA club houses and other support groups, every walk of life is well represented to some extent in the rooms of recovery.
Men and women from every country and all kinds of economic and social backgrounds have found a solution to their issues with drugs and/or alcohol in this community, and friendship and fellowship has become a huge cornerstone in the lasting sobriety of so many people.
So when you become friends with a character that you never would have thought to hang out with in high school or after work, it’s not really all that strange- but sometimes the mix up can be surprising. Such as rapper Chris Brown and reality star Scott Disick supposedly becoming sober buddies!
Lord Disick’s Drinking
Some people probably have heard of the infamous Scott “Lord” Disick and his recent recycling in and out of rehab. As a 32-year-old TV personality and the ex-partner of reality star Kourtney Kardashian, Scott became largely famous due to his outrageous appearances on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality series. Since then he has been in and out of rehab multiple times. He most recently checked into rehab in California in October, reportedly in an attempt to gain custodial visits of his kids.
Before that, he had announced this past March in a press release he had a stint in rehab, stating:
“My issues are bigger than me and I’m ready to truly remedy this struggle I continue to battle.”
Scott Disick’s battle with alcohol was profusely portrayed on the small screen during the television show, presumably to amp up the drama. In one episode the mother of his three children, Kourtney Kardashian, gave Scott an ultimatum- either get sober or she would kick him out of their house.
Chris Brown’s Controversy
Rapper Chris Brown is of course a household name, and he is now known in an infamous kind of way after he assaulted singer Rihanna back in 2009. Beyond this publicly scandalized incident that had put such an intense spotlight on the star he has also had his personal battled addiction in the headlines multiple times.
At 26 years old Chris Brown has spent more than three months in jail last year after being kicked out of court-ordered rehab. He later blamed his behavior on an addiction to a “hood cocktail” of codeine-based cough syrup mixed with Xanax and soda.
Every once in a while it seemed there would be another report from tabloids putting Chris Brown back in the spotlight for something to do with substance abuse, rehab or more legal trouble, so his recovery has without a doubt been an uphill battle.
Strong and Sober Buddies
However now, according to TMZ, the two have made a pretty surprising best-sober-buddy duo and are actively cleaning up their acts. The two were spotted leaving a nightclub in Los Angeles last week, where they hung out and “only drank water” all night.
Brown even included Disick in his new music video for “Picture Me Rollin” earlier this month. Apparently the two have been helping each other “stay strong and sober” as the dust has settled on the more publicly scandalous sides of substance abuse-related drama they were each individually experiencing.
Celebrities are people just like you and me, and they can suffer the same way from the disease of alcoholism or addiction and despite the differences, we all have the same opportunities to recover the same way. In recovery we sometimes find the most unlikely friends can be the best.
