Scooter emphasizes that it was the star's own decision to get help.
I think he made a conscious choice for himself to change, I think I failed for a year and a half when I tried to help him, because he did not change for a year and a half … It was not until one day he woke up and said, "Hey, I have to talk to you, I do not want to be that person anymore," Scooter said.
& # 39;[He’s an] extraordinary young man who has been given an extraordinary life.
"And he complained and he fought against it and then he came into a dark place, but when he accepted his responsibility and saw himself well and not what everyone was doing, he was the owner and he became healthy. & # 39;
