Scott Stapp was well known in the 90s as the singer for Creed. He was worth roughly $10 million, and his band sold just about 53 million records worldwide. On November 26th, Stapp posted a video to Facebook, stating that he was completely broke and homeless.
The rambling video was followed by two others. Collectively, they showed Scott Stapp telling his fans about his monetary issues, swearing that he wasn’t on drugs, and giving some insight into the singer’s meltdown.
After the videos were posted, Jaclyn Stapp, Scott’s wife, began to try and get him put on a psych hold for 60 days, according to the Daily Mail.
Although Scott claimed in his videos that he was clean and sober, Mrs. Stapp had been claiming otherwise. In fact, part of her reason for wanting him committed was that he was trying to detox, with no help, off of amphetamines, steroids, weed, coke, PCP, Ketamine, and almost every other popular drug out there.
Also according to Mrs. Stapp, Scott sent two very ominous texts to her that made her believe he was capable of hurting himself or someone else.
One text read, “Florida is not safe. Biological weapons on the way. U have to leave with kids and meet me in Atlanta.”
The other said, “I’m coming to get you Satan and children. No mercy. You know how this ends. God created you and now God is ending you.
It wasn’t until Friday that Scott Stapp took down the videos. In their place, though, Stapp wrote a strange message to his followers.
“I’m going to step back and let God control everything from here on. I should have continued to do that before I allowed my hurt, frustration, and emotions take control and post those videos. All I can say is that the truth will set you (me) free, and I’m holding on to Jeremiah 29:11 and Isaiah 44:8. This is a test of faith, and I will NEVER give up or lose my faith. No matter what. This will be my last statement until after justice is served. Love to you all my friends.”
That day, Jaclyn Stapp removed her request to have her husband committed. According to TMZ, she wanted to speak to Scott one-on-one to try and convince him that he needs help. She is confident that she will be able to reach her goal that way, without anyone getting hurt.
