Creed's Scott Stapp Has Been Sleeping in His Truck
Well, this is really unfortunate.
Creed rocker Scott Stapp has uploaded a nearly 16-minute video, titled "Public Statement #1," to Facebook in an attempt, he says, to clear up some rumors about his life. He says he isn't on drugs and has been getting tested weekly as proof.
Stapp says his current problems began eight weeks ago when he discovered a large amount of money missing from his accounts. "I'm under some kind of pretty vicious attack," he explains in the video. "There are people who have taken advantage and stolen money from me, and they're trying to discredit me, slander me … Someone had used my information and changed my online passwords to my bank accounts and transferred all the money out of my bank accounts so I had nothing."
He also claims that the IRS has frozen his accounts, and the issue won't be cleared up anytime soon. Because of this, Stapp says he's living in a hotel after weeks of sleeping in his truck. "I'm gonna fight every single individual that is responsible for this. Right now I'm looking for an honest, good attorney that's ready to fight and take it all the way to the top."
Additionally, he notes that his wife is trying to get him committed; TMZ mentions that a rep for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office did a wellness check at Stapp's home last week and "all was well."
