Well this is troubling news.
On Friday, it was reported that Scott Disick is currently facing some kidney trouble. Say it ain't so!
Apparently, the KUWTK star has been ill for sometime and his constant drinking is only making the situation worse. A source shared:
Demi Lovato Says She Was A 'C*nt' Before Sobriety & Calls Out Feminists Who 'Don't Do The Work' In Refinery29 Spread!
Demi Lovato doesn't have a filter.
So, it's no surprise the pop princess sat down with Refinery29 to discuss her past struggle with drugs, alcohol, addiction, and mental illness.
The brunette beauty opened up about how substance abuse affected her attitude, saying:
"Prior to getting sober, I was one of those people who was like, I don't give a f*ck, whatever. And I used that as an excuse to do whatever I wanted. I was a nightmare to work with."
The 23-year-old even went on to use some pretty harsh words to describe her old behavior, admitting she was:
Ruby Rose Accused Of Throwing A Tantrum (& French Fries) At A Bar — But The OITNB Star Claims She Was Just Defending Her Sobriety!
Don't mess with Ruby Rose.
Over the weekend, the Orange Is the New Black star was kicked out of a New Orleans bar for allegedly throwing a tantrum where she threw french fries at the hot spot's staff. Yikes!
According to the Rebellion Bar and Urban Kitchen owner Seung Hong, Miz Rose was just "awful" as she "cursed out" his employees. He dished:
"She was having like a tantrum. She was awful. She was a horrible person."
That doesn't sound very promising for the 30-year-old. However, the Australian DJ has since defended her actions on Facebook as she noted:
Prince's untimely death from an apparent drug overdose has prompted officials in Minnesota to address the opiate prescription problem in the state.
According to TMZ, members of the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice met on Saturday and came to the conclusion that prescriptions for opiates are "out of control."
Board members called for stricter regulations and better supervision of doctors who give out painkiller prescriptions.
Although Prince was not mentioned by name, a member did acknowledge that his death had incited a closer look at the problem.
Some board members also concluded that doctors have been relying on opiate prescriptions instead of figuring out less dangerous ways to treat chronic pain conditions that won't result in death.
We'll keep you posted as more information on this reform becomes available.

It's been weeks since news broke of Prince's untimely death, but only now are his close friends opening up about his painkiller addiction.
It's been said that Prince's abuse of opioids may've been the result of his chronic hip pain that hindered his physical activity levels. One of the Raspberry Beret artist's old collaborators named Sky Dangcil theorized the Grammy winner "took the pills to keep the show going."
Oh no! Apparently, when Prince couldn't deal with his pain any longer he would reportedly travel to his estate in Turks and Caicos in order to "rest his hips." As you may know, Sky was both a DJ and a violinist for the Minnesota native between 2000 and 2007.

Khloé Kardashian isn't one to hold her tongue.
On Wednesday, the KUWTK starlet took to Twitter to share a quote that seemed pretty targeted at her estranged husband Lamar Odom. In case you forgot, the former NBA star has been spotted drinking a couple of times while out and about in El Lay — despite the fact he survived an overdose last fall. Oof!
Well, Miz Kardashian not-so-subtlety posted:
There's something shady about all of this…
As we previously reported, Andrew Kornfeld flew to be with the Raspberry Beret singer in order to help him with his painkiller addiction. What's odd about this situation is that it is Andrew's dad, Dr. Howard Kornfeld, who was asked by the late icon's rep to come help save Prince from himself.
Rather than just drop everything to be with the Grammy winner, the rehab specialist sent his son
