Scott Disick Plans to Sue Rehab Over Leaked Photo ... Facility 'Sickened' by Privacy Breach

Exclusive

9:44 AM PT -- 5/5 -- Noah Nordheimer, President & CEO of All Points North Lodge, tells TMZ ... his team is aware of the Disick photo and says, "The protection of our clients' personal and confidential information is of the utmost importance to us."

Nordheimer says it's strict APN policy to not disclose any personal info on patients, including whether or not a client is being treated there, and if it's determined that "any information relating to any client was ever obtained from APN facilities and provided to a media outlet" ... it will take legal action against that person.

He says the APN Lodge team is "sickened by any publication who would report on an individual’s life struggles without their consent.”

Scott Disick is enraged he's been betrayed by the rehab facility he's been staying at ... he's checked himself out and is going to sue.

Scott has been staying at the All Points North Lodge in Edwards, Colorado since last Tuesday. There are reports he's there for cocaine and alcohol abuse ... he's struggled with substance abuse in the past.

His lawyer, Marty Singer, says, well a lot. For starters, Singer says Disick was NOT there for coke and booze. He says, "In an effort to finally come to terms and deal with the pain that Scott has been silently suffering for many years due to the sudden death of his mother, followed by the death of his father 3 months later, Scott made the decision to check himself into a rehab facility last week to work on his past traumas."

We're told he was quarantining in L.A. by himself and it gave him time to realize he had not properly dealt with the death of his parents.

As for Scott's photo that was taken inside the rehab facility ... Singer says it's an outrageous HIPAA violation.

Scott's team believes the photo was taken by a staff member and not a patient, and that could trigger criminal prosecution. We're told the photo was taken of Scott upon his check-in to the facility.

As soon as he learned of the photo leak, Scott immediately called for a car to pick him up, and he's now left the facility and is en route back to L.A.

Though Disick and Co. maintain this has nothing to do with drugs or alcohol, he has struggled over the years -- in and out of rehab at least 3 times ... not to mention at least one hospitalization as a result of substance use. It wasn't until he started dating Sofia Richie in 2017 that he cleaned up his act.

Bashaud Breeland Arrest Cop Pulled Gun & Taser On Chiefs Player ... 'Marijuana Enthusiast'

Exclusive Details

7:23 AM PT -- 4/28 -- TMZ Sports has obtained the arrest report ... and it's shocking.

Cops say the arresting officer used a taser and a firearm to take Breeland into custody as the NFL player allegedly "attempted to flee the scene."

Here's the deal ... a York County Sheriff's deputy claims he saw Breeland and two other men smoking marijuana at a gas station at around 11 AM on Tuesday.

The cop says the men tried to hide the weed when he arrived -- with Breeland repeatedly attempting to leave the scene.

The officer says he initially pulled out a taser and began to issue commands to Breeland to stop resisting -- but Breeland would not comply. So the officer, "drew his issued firearm and issued more lawful commands to Bashaud Breeland who was concealing his hand."

The officer says citizens in the area were begging Breeland to "stop resisting" and ultimately the officer was able to put him in handcuffs.

When backup arrived, officers searched Breeland's car and claim they found a "large marijuana blunt" along with 3.2 grams of weed in the driver door.

Cops say they also found open bottles of beer and tequila in the car.

There's more ... cops say Breeland gave deputies permission to look through his cell phone -- and they allegedly found "several communications about drug transactions."

"Bashaud Breeland had several messages to dealers placing orders of large quantities of marijuana in bags like what was found in his driver's door."

According to the arrest report, Breeland told cops he is a "marijuana enthusiast" who simply likes to smoke ... the insinuation is that he denies being a drug dealer.

Cops also say Breeland "had a large amount of cash on him as well."

Breeland was eventually transported to a nearby police station where he was booked for multiple charges including resisting arrest and possession of weed.

He was released late Tuesday night on $2,362 bond.

8:01 AM PT -- Breeland shared his side of things in a since-deleted tweet late Tuesday night ... claiming it was a set-up.

"I really was at a gas pump got approach by two guys police pulled up they throw something my car as police pulled up which the cop saw," Breeland said.

"I was the one detained wit charges that really shouldn’t be charged."

Kansas City Chiefs star Bashaud Breeland -- who had an interception in Super Bowl LIV -- was just busted for weed possession, open container and resisting arrest, officials confirm.

28-year-old Breeland -- fresh off inking a new, $4.5 million deal to stay with the Chiefs this off-season -- was booked around 1:30 PM on Tuesday in Charlotte, NC.

According to the York County Sheriff's Office, Breeland is facing multiple charges -- resisting arrest, open alcohol container in motor vehicle, alcohol in motor vehicle with seal broken, possession of 28g or less of marijuana, and driving without a license.

The South Carolina native was booked into York County Jail, where he remains in custody, according to records.

Breeland was a 4th-round pick to the Washington Redskins after 3 seasons with Clemson ... playing 4 seasons in D.C. before a brief stint with the Green Bay Packers.

Breeland had a team-high 7 tackles and picked off Jimmy Garoppolo in the Super Bowl ... helping Kansas City win its first Super Bowl since 1969.

We've reached out to the Chiefs for comment ... so far, no word back.

Pablo Escobar Family Sues Former Exec ... You're Holding Our Channel Hostage!!!

Exclusive

Don't mess with Pablo Escobar ... or the late drug lord's family, which is accusing a former exec of hijacking the Escobar YouTube channel, and trying to extort them.

Escobar Inc. is suing Daniel Reitberg, a former chief operating officer of the company, claiming the guy siphoned money out of the Escobars and is now holding their YouTube channel hostage.

Escobar Inc. also claims Reitberg has made off with thousands of dollars and refuses to surrender the channel. They claim he's holding it ransom ... as a means to extort significant sums of money from the company. The company claims it has tried but failed to reason with him.

Courtrooms weren't really how Pablo handled disputes -- but his family company is now suing to get Reitberg to fork over the password, and for other damages.

Juice WRLD Fam Drops 'Righteous' Details Drug Use, Downward Spiral

Juice WRLD's family has dropped a posthumous track from him, and its lyrics sadly foreshadow his eventual demise.

The late rapper's family dropped "Righteous" Thursday night and the track goes into extreme detail about his heavy drug use and the state of his mental health. Juice WRLD was never one to hold back his feelings, so it's no surprise the new song is so brutally honest.

His opening lyrics are proof Juice was more than ready to open up: "I know that the truth is hard to digest (yeah). Five or six pills in my right hand (yeah). Codeine runneth over on my nightstand. Taking medicine to fix all of the damage. My anxiety the size of a planet (oh). Holes in my skull over time. My heart's over ice (whoa) ... we may die this evening. Coughing, wheezing, bleeding."

Juice also talked about feeling like he was drowning with "my demons 10 feet under me. Inhale, exhale, but I can't breathe. Too busy drinking codeine, doing high speeds ... take a pill for the thrill, have a relapse."

This isn't the first time Juice has appeared prophetic. In his 2018 track "Legend," Juice had lyrics that included, "What's the 27 club? We ain't making it past 21."

TMZ broke the story ... Juice WRLD died in early December at Chicago's Midway Airport. As we first reported ... the 21-year-old rapper died from an accidental overdose of oxycodone. Witnesses said they saw him swallow a bunch of pills in an attempt to hide them from the feds. He ended up suffering a fatal seizure.

Jason Davis Cause of Death ... Accidental Fentanyl OD

Exclusive

Child actor and Hollywood heir Jason Davis's cause of death was fentanyl ... according to the Medical Examiner.

L.A. County Medical Examiner documents show Jason died from the "effects of fentanyl." No other factors are listed in the report ... but it does say it was an accident.

TMZ broke the story ... Jason was found unresponsive in his bathroom on February 16. Law enforcement sources at the time told us there were items nearby that were consistent with heroin or opioid use ... including burnt tin foil and other paraphernalia.

Based on the ME's report ... the opioid would be fentanyl, and not heroin.

Jason was 35.

Trick Daddy Arrest White Powder In Dollar Bill ... Bombs Field Sobriety Test

Exclusive
BU$TED
TMZ.com

Trick Daddy had a white powdery substance tucked away in a dollar bill when cops pulled him over in Miami ... and then he bombed his field sobriety test.

TMZ's obtained bodycam footage of the rapper's arrest for cocaine possession and driving under the influence ... and you can clearly see the moment police discover what they say is cocaine residue on the inside of a dollar bill.

As you can see in the video ... cops are counting Trick Daddy's money on the trunk of his rental car when a white powdery substance starts falling like snow out of a crumpled dollar bill.

As we reported ... Trick Daddy was busted back in January and was booked for DUI and cocaine possession.

In the bodycam footage, Trick Daddy appears to have bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Cops ask him if he had anything to drink, and after saying he'd had a few drinks a couple hours ago, TD bombs a field sobriety test in a parking lot.

Trick Daddy also tried to pull the ol' "don't-you-know-who-I-am" card in the arrest video ... but it backfires.

'Mighty Ducks' Goalie On The Mend After Meth Bust ... Finally Looking Healthy!!!

Exclusive

Shaun Weiss -- famous for playing Goldberg in "The Mighty Ducks" -- seems to be pulling out of his downward spiral, as he's looking much healthier than he has since his most recent meth bust.

Check out this pic of Shaun now ... he's no longer frail and disheveled. Instead, he's in great spirits and has apparently gained a lot of weight. He was having breakfast last month with his close friend, Drew Gallagher, when the picture was taken.

It's a good sign for Shaun who finally went to rehab in March after getting out of jail.

As we first reported ... Shaun's friends said they were desperate to get the troubled child star help before it was too late -- he was living on the streets and dealing with a slew of life-threatening problems before January's burglary and meth arrest.

When he got out of jail he checked into the recovery facility, but we're told he was recently transferred to a different one due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Our sources say Shaun was told he was at a higher risk of catching COVID-19 because he has diabetes and the original facility could no longer keep him with its main population. So, his team found the new rehab center.

This is, hands down, the best we've seen Shaun looking in a long while -- here's hoping he continues getting the help he needs.

As we reported ... Ashley, who was Playboy's Miss March in 2011, was charged with DUI back in 2016 after allegedly plowing her golf cart into 4 parked cars while she was wasted.
