TMZ reports that a Madison Country, Florida Sheriff’s Department report from November 13th states that deputies found Scott Stapp in his vehicle on the side of the road, “wasted, incoherent and rambling that someone was trying to poison him.” Stapp was released after an involuntary 72-hour psychiatric hold. Also this month, Scott’s wife Jaclyn Stapp stated in a divorce petition that Scott had 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.” Jaclyn also claims that her husband has been pawning his possessions to fuel his addictions, which include “steroids, weed, cocaine, PCP, Special K, Crystal meth, and various Rx drugs.”
According to TMZ, Scott Stapp called up the dean of his son’s school on November 10th to alert them that ISIS was targeting the school, and Stapp also allegedly threatened to kill both himself and his Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor.
On November 26th, the Creed singer posted a Facebook video in which he claimed to be broke, homeless, and sober. The 15-minute, rambling clip prompted Jaclyn to request that a 60-hour psychiatric hold be put on Scott. On November 28th, the video was replaced with the following message from Scott: “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.”
