It’s been a while since we’ve thought about Creed. And apparently we’re not the only ones. Earlier today, frontman Scott Stapp posted a 15-minute epic rant on his Facebook page. What kind of rant was it, a self-promotional one about buying his solo album? One about his former bandmates in Creed? Nope, in the stark, black and white video, shot in a hotel room, the singer says that he’s “under some kind of vicious attack.” He states that he’s had his accounts frozen by the IRS and the banks are trying to rob him of his money. Apparently, he did an audit that found that not only was his label taking money from him, but the banks have as well. Creed sold over 10 million albums in the ’90s and 2000s. He said that he’d slept in his truck and hadn’t eaten for two days.
TMZ says that Stapp and his wife have filed for divorce and is trying to get him committed. The documents in the divorce paperwork says that Stapp sent text messaged to her saying “Florida is not safe. Biological weapons on the way” and “I wouldn’t doubt if if the CIA is behind Alcoholic Anonymous.” According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office, they did a wellness check at Stapp’s house just last week and spoke with Stapp and his wife. It’s sad that in between last week and this morning, when he posted the video that he’s gone to the point where he’s babbling about money and his son. It seems like he should be talking to a good lawyer, and not his fans. He actually asks for some legal help in the video. Even though we’re no fans of Stapp’s music, here’s hoping he gets the help he needs.
