Scott Stapp Of Creed Says Rapper T.I. Saved His Life After Hotel Leap

scott stapp and t.i.

Creed frontman Scott Stapp has been in the news lately due to his announcement that he will no longer support President Barack Obama, but the Christian rocker has also come forward with another shocking admission — that he seemingly tried to take his own life and that rapper T.I. of all people stepped up to save him.

Scott Stapp and T.I. may seem like an unlikely pairing, and, indeed, their musical styles are likely to appeal to two entirely different audiences. But, nearly a decade ago, the rapper and rocker met during a Christian music project, as Stapp explained when discussing his second run in with T.I.

Of their first meeting, Stapp says:

“I had met T.I. back in 2004, we were both writing songs for The Passion of The Christ: Songs Inspired By soundtrack and we had briefly interacted there and knew what each looked like … We’d talked about being fans of Alabama.”

After their first meeting, it was years before T.I. and Scott Stapp crossed paths, and the Creed singer says that, the second time, T.I. rescued him after he leaped 40 feet from a hotel balcony:

“It’s ironic — he walked in, and I found out later it was the only room left in the hotel and he came in off the street and came out, and as I’m laying on the ledge, blood fell to [T.I.'s] feet and he looked up and he had an Alabama hat on. I said, ‘roll tide,’ and then he looked at me and put two and two together and really saved my life.”

Stapp says:

“I laid out there for two and a half hours and my guardian angel showed up — rapper T.I. … He immediately took care of the situation and saved my life.”

As MTV notes, saving Scott Stapp’s life isn’t the first time T.I. successfully intervened in a suicide attempt; the rapper also talked a man out of jumping off a building in Atlanta some years back.

    Creed was the most amazing band ever, in my eyes. I am 53 and when I saw them 10 years ago I was crippled with passion. They were AMAZING! I danced and sang my heart out for three hours! I still ride to work every day as a Nurse from Maine and feel the healing power with their Album Human clay and My Own Prison. NO ONE HAS EVER even come close to this Bands Talent, in my eyes. And Scott Stapp, if in the powers that be: Your voice IS God given and the magic that your Whole band had is very rare indeed. But beyond that, Scott…… Remember to be true to yourself, first and foremost, because at the end of the day when all the lights are shut off..You and your loved ones are all that matter………

    who cares about scott stapp and his fat face? he is such a false christian, drugs, cheats on his wife, etc. friggin hypocrite. maybe it's too bad that T.I. saved his, if it even went down that way.

  7. Trent Kreslins

    I find it funny how people keep commenting on how they saved Scott…

    What are you expecting? The News to come to your place for the real story…

    TIP will comment, and he wouldn't lie about what happened.

    Easily the worst voice in R&R history. I call him the anti-singer. Also one of the weirdest folks. He's religiously brainwashed.

    Since when has commiting "sins" made you a false christian. He believes in Christ, therefore he is a christian. I am not religious but find it hilarious that when I went to church I was told everybody sins, people make mistakes, god forgives, but as soon as someone commits a "big sin" there branded and socially crucified by their own fellowship. What a crock of shit. He is not a false christian by any standard set by Christian doctrine…, you know the Bible. Why is it that a non-christian has to tell you how ignorant you are in the ways of Christianity….Coexist people.

    @sergio evidently you aren't mentioned in the story.. T.I problem was more encouraging than you and physically helped him up. while you problem stood there watching and saying things to him..So, its not a lie.. so,you need to stop for real. I didnt't have to be there to see it. however, you store don't match with his.

    TI and Scott got in an argument that night and TI pushed Stapp off the balcony. The problem was that instead of the self-righteous Stapp splatting on the concrete, TI pushed him so hard that he landed in the deepest part of the hotel swimming pool to help break the fall. Scott then stripped down to his underwear and asked a stunned TI to join him in the pool for a game of Marco Polo.
