Scott Stapp from Creed is in a psych ward now

Creed, that band that everyone really loves to hate, is fucking awful. Scott Stapp, the band’s lead singer, is even worse – only now I feel sorta bad for saying that since he’s been placed on a psychiatric hold because he’s going crazy and thinks ISIS is planning an attack against his son and that criticizing Obama publicly is what started his downfall. Uh… wow.

From TMZ:

TMZ has obtained a Madison County Florida Sheriff’s Dept. report which says deputies found Scott on the side of a road Nov. 13 and he appeared wasted, incoherent and rambling that someone was trying to poison him. Cops placed him on a 72-hour psych hold.

Jaclyn Stapp — who filed for divorce last month — then filed new legal docs claiming Scott is off the hinges, threatening to kill himself and his AA sponsor, and she says he has the wherewithal to do it … he has guns.

Jaclyn says Scott hears phantom voices and has visions of people on fire. She says he’s also paranoid. He left a message with the dean of his kid’s school on November 10, warning that the school was about to become the target of an ISIS attack.

As for why he’s out of his head, Jaclyn says he’s on a potentially fatal drug binge, fueled by steroids, weed, cocaine, PCP, Special K, Crystal meth, and various Rx drugs.

Stapp posted a desperate video Friday, saying he’s broke, sometimes homeless and sometimes goes without food. Jaclyn says it’s because he blows all of his money on drugs, and has resorted to pawning personal items to fuel his habit.

Welp… that’s something for your holiday. Mental illness is so rampant these days, especially amongst those in the public eye. Hopefully he’s able to get some serious help for whatever the hell is going on, be it legit mental illness, drug addiction, a combination of the two, etc. Hurting himself or others is serious business so hopefully they don’t just turn him loose.

  • I never disliked Creed as much as my friends did, but his religious holier than thou attitude turns out to be pretty hypocritical. BUT that seems to be the norm with these types.

  • I’m not a rocker but I had a room mate who was. She played their album with “Been a while” on it so many times that I finally decided it was the ideal album to commit suicide to – preferably before getting all the way through it.

    He sounded seriously depressed back then. I’m not surprised that he is a bit of a head case. That’s all I know of Creed. Never voluntarily listened – cringed every time I heard, “Been a While” and had no clue what the lead singer looked like until this recent episode. I would have thought he slashed his wrists years ago.

    • You are a piece of shit. Saying evil shit like that about someone you know nothing about and have no idea that he is going through. Have some fucking empathy for an obviously suffering human being…May God have mercy on your darkened soul.

    • Kimchee: My comment was for you btw. Go fuck yourself. Your day of reckoning will be coming soon and God will be your ultimate judge. Good luck shitbag. If you speak such words about a stranger in pain, I don’t want to know what kind of an asshole you are to people around you. Karma’s a bitch.
