On Wednesday, Scott Stapp released a “public statement” on Creed’s Facebook page acknowledging that he was broke and living in Holiday Inn. His wife had just filed for divorce in Palm Beach County, claiming Staap was a hot mess and using drugs:
In the divorce petition, Jaclyn Stapp asked for full custody of the kids because, she claims, the singer of My Sacrifice and With Arms Wide Open is incapable of taking care of them.
She says he disappeared from their home in early October and hasn’t been telling her where he is. The paperwork shows she asserts Stapp has been doing so much amphetamines, crystal meth and steroids that he has become a paranoid shell who has threatened to kill himself and harm his family.
A few days ago he posted this vlog video to the Creed Facebook page showing Stapp going to the police in Florida to file a report that money was stolen from him.
Shortly after, Stapp also released this video Creed’s Facebook page, in which he rants about the “soul sickness” in America, claiming: “We’ve taken God out of everything—we won’t allow kids to pray to Christ or God in our public schools, but we sure will make allowances for Muslims and Hindus and Buddhists to have their freedom of religion.”
