Scott Disick claims he is a sex addict.

The 33-year-old entrepreneur was seen defending himself after Kim Kardashian West dubbed him a ''f***ing whore'' in a trailer for the upcoming season of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'.

After Scott made a surprise appearance at a family trip to Costa Rica in January, the brief clip shows him cuddling up to former partner Kourtney Kardashian - with whom he has children Mason, six, Penelope, four, and two-year-old Reign - and describing her as the ''love of [his] life.''

But Kim is then heard saying: ''Scott brought a girl up here. He's a f***ing whore.''

In response, Scott shouts: ''I'm a sex addict.''

And another brief clip then shows Kourtney, 37, insisting that things will ''never work out'' between them.

Elsewhere in the trailer, Kim's terrifying ordeal when she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October was also shown, as was the beginnings of her husband Kanye West's breakdown.

In one clip, Kim, 36, was seen telling her family: ''If the elevator did not open in time, I'm f***ed.''

And after Kanye, 39, is seen walking off stage after just three songs, a clip then showed Kim - who has children North, three, and Saint, 15 months, with the rapper - crying on the phone as she asked: ''What's wrong?''

The trailer opened with a glimpse of the family's hectic life in the public eye, as Khloe Kardashian, 32, said: ''My career is about being vulnerable and sharing my life with people''.

Her younger sister Kendall Jenner, 21, then added: ''Being in the public eye is pretty crazy.''

The end of the clip is a voiceover from Khloe, who says: ''Everything has changed, but we can't be afraid. We can't let people scare us into not living our lives.''

'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' returns to US TV screens this weekend.
