It looks like Kourtney Kardashian is finally warming up to Scott Disick again!

The pair parted ways in July after the 32-year-old was spotted cozying up to ex-girlfriend Chloé Bartoli in Monaco.

But last month, the famous father decided to get his life back on track and checked himself into rehab for drug and alcohol addition. In fact, the reality star has recently proved he's totally committed to sobriety for his kids' sake.

Kim Kardashian Doesn't Know If Lamar Odom Will 'Ever Be The Same Again'

We hope he's able to get better.

We hope Lamar Odom is able to make a full recovery after he was found unconscious at Love Ranch brothel last month.

Unfortunately, the 36-year-old reportedly suffered a dozen strokes while being treated for his drug overdose. Insiders had said he might "never be the same" because of the organ damage, and now Kim Kardashian West is echoing that concern.

On Friday, the reality star told Ryan Seacrest that her brother-in-law still has a lot of progress to make before he can truly get better, saying:

"He's here and he's alive, but to say it's not a long road and to say he's fully better is not the truth either. He has a lot of work to do and a lot of communication therapy and having to learn to walk again and to talk again. You never know if he'll ever be the same again."

And even though Khloé Kardashian and her husband aren't rekindling their romantic relationship, North West's momma explained that the NBA forward is still a huge part of their famous family, adding:

"Lamar is family and he'll always be family, we'll always do what we can to help take care of him, and protect him, and be there for him. It's a really unfortunate, sad situation all the way around the board, and I just encourage people to keep on praying because the road is nowhere near over."

While Lamar isn't out of the woods just yet, we're glad he's got such a strong support system during this tough time.

Officials Reveal Nick Cave's Son Fell To His Tragic Death After Taking LSD

| Filed under: DrugsSad SadFamily

We can't imagine the pain Nick Cave and his family are dealing with right now.

Almost four months after Nick's 15-year-old son Arthur Cave died in a tragic and terrifying fall, investigators have concluded the teenager ingested the hallucinogenic drug LSD shortly before his passing.

The revelation provides some closure to Arthur's loved ones who wondered why he'd walk off a dangerous cliff. One official explained:

"It's clear he could not know what was real and what was not real. It's completely impossible to know what was in Arthur's mind and what he was seeing. In Arthur's case, sadly, and I think mercifully, it was clear that he was not aware of what was going on," Ransom said. "The point of impact was the point of death."

So tragic and senseless. It's sad to know that one decision affected Cave's life in such a profound and final way.

During the inquest, Nick and his wife Susie Cave periodically had to leave the hearing during moments when graphic testimony about their son's death was revealed. Obviously, the "accidental" fall left Arthur with severe injuries.

In a heartbreaking post earlier this year, Arthur's mom posted the following throwback in the wake of her son's death. Take a look at the emotional message (below):
