Scott Disick drops a bomb on the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Along with Kim talking about her frightening Paris robbery and the ongoing Rob and Chyna drama, Kourtney’s long-term on and off guy reveals he is a sex addict.
In a new promo Scott is seen shouting, "I'm a sex addict!" after earlier calling Kourtney the love of his life. Kourtney is seen saying it’s “never going to work" between the two of them, upon learning Scott brought another girl somewhere within the vicinity of a Kardashian family vacation. Big mistake. Big.
While it’s new information about Scott and his demons, sex addiction is nothing new in Hollywood. Here are some stars who have publicly battled sex addiction:
Charlie Sheen is the first to admit that he’s struggled with sex addiction throughout his life. His wild partying ways, admitted drug use, and casual flings led to a positive HIV status for the star, who is currently taking meds to try to keep the disease under control.
In 2008, when David Duchovny split from Tea Leoni, he said simply, “I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction.”
Being married to Halle Berry unfortunately doesn’t cure sex addiction. Eric Benet was caught cheating on the stunner multiple times, and eventually checked into a 35-day rehab program for sex addiction. “If there is such a thing as rock bottom, I was there,” he told PEOPLE at the time. Halle divorced him soon after in 2005.
Russell Brand has written books and spoken extensively about his addictions, one of which is a sex addiction. He claimed he was “like a charging locomotive” when looking for women to sleep with and once slept with 80 women in one month. Now he’s sober, into yoga, and is a new dad.
Kanye West once admitted to being a sex addict, telling Details in 2006: “People ask me a lot about my drive. I think it comes from like, having a sexual addiction at a really young age. Look at the drive that people have to get sex – to dress like this and get a haircut and be in the club or in the freezing cold at 3 am. If you can focus your energy on something valuable, put that into work ethic.”
Tiger Woods appeared to have it all—kids, a gorgeous wife, a career as a golf champ. But he blew it all when he was outed as a serial cheater who often took up with escorts as an extracurricular activity. His then wife Elin Nordegren left him after he completed a stint in rehab.
