Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend has had treatment for alcohol abuse.

Scott Disick reportedly went to a rehab centre after seeing himself act aggressively during an episode of 'Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami' which was aired in the US last week.

Scott was seen on the show punching through a mirror, injuring himself so badly he needed surgery.

Afterwards Kourtney left their Miami home with their seven-month-old son Mason and returned to her family's house in Los Angeles.

A source told E! News: "Scott received outpatient rehab treatment and counselling for alcohol use and psychological issues after his Miami outburst. He's still being treated."

In scenes from an upcoming episode of the series, Scott, 27, is seen reacting badly when 31-year-old Kourtney's mother Kris Jenner gives him some brochures offering retreat services so he can seek help.

Scott throws the pamphlets over a balcony, and tells Kris: "I'm in therapy already. I don't need another person bringing me down when I'm trying to be on the right path."

To which Kris replies: "I'm here to say you will not be a part of my life unless you change really fast."
