Scott Stapp & Wife Joining VH1's 'Couples Therapy'
Creed frontman Scott Stapp and wife, Jaclyn, are officially heading to VH1's Couples Therapy.
Stapp and his wife will appear on the sixth season of the reality program, which will premiere on the network later this year. They are expected to spend three weeks in therapy with Dr. Jenn Mann, according to People.
In addition to the Stapps, the next season will also include model Janice Dickinson and fiance Robert "Rocky" Gerner, Mob Wives star Angela "Big Ang" Raiola and husband Neil Murphy, Carmen Carrera (who appeared on RuPaul's Drag Race) and husband Adrian Torres, as well as Love & Hip Hop's Joe Budden and Kaylin Garcia.
The news of his casting on the show comes just weeks after he opened up about his struggles with bipolar disorder following a series of bizarre events in late 2014.
"I had a psychotic break that was brought on by alcohol and drug abuse," he explained to People earlier this month. "I was hallucinating. I drove around the United States for a month, following an angel that I saw on the hood of my car."
The Creed frontman eventually got treatment in an intensive program. He is currently in therapy and takes medication for the disorder. Additionally, he is in a 12-step program and has a sponsor. He previously credited his wife for helping him cope with the diagnosis.
"It was hard to process," he said. "There's a stigma associated with it. But [my wife] Jaclyn kept telling me, 'Embrace it. We love you.' It became a big sign of relief, because finally, we had an answer."
