Scott Stapp Is Broke and Living in a Hotel
November 26, 2014
by Mike Pearl Night Editor

Well, the vast project aimed at completely crushing the spirit of Scott Stapp, lead singer of Creed and rock 'n' roll punching bag, has worked: He's homeless, without enough money to feed himself.

That's according to a video—apparently shot using a borrowed phone—he just posted to Facebook. It sounds really awful (and not just because he incessantly smacks his lips):


The most disturbing part is the revelation of his homelessness. "Right now, I'm living in a Holiday Inn by the grace of God," he says. "There's been a couple weeks where I had to sleep in my truck. I had no money, not even for gas and food." In those two days without food, apparently things got pretty dark, and he says he "ended up in the emergency room."

In the ?video, Stapp—who now sorta looks like Glen Danzig (in a good way)—provides the broad strokes of a vast conspiracy against him by the IRS, an identity thief, people at his record label, and someone who seems to be blackmailing him.

He says the IRS has frozen his bank accounts "two or three times to leave me completely penniless," although the third freeze, he claims, is due to a "clerical error," and that the IRS will return his funds in nine to ten months.

But that's just the beginning; there's also the supposed campaign to smear and humiliate him. "They're trying to discredit me, slander me, and I've even been threatened that if I went public, like I'm doing right now, that any impropriety or anything that I've ever done in my past that these individuals can get their hands on to humiliate and embarrass me, and try to ruin my credibility, that they would do that."

His record label, ?Wind-Up Records is apparently responsible for "royalties not paid," but they're also thieves, according to Stapp. In part of the video addressed to his son Jagger, he says "people that we know, and at the record company, and outside of that, have stolen lots of money."

But then there's the identity thief, whom he accuses of simply obtaining his passwords and draining his accounts. His bank is also culpable, he says, since bank representatives took no action after this theft—he claims they simply said, "Yeah, all the money's been taken out of your account and there's nothing we can do."

Stapp's downward spiral has been going on for a long time. I still remember reading Stephen Thompson's ?brutally concise AVClub review of Human Clay. (Excerpt: "Stapp's tortured, bleating windbaggery, coupled with ham-fisted riffage and take-me-higher/what-about-the-children lyrics, makes for rough, monotonous going.") But he wasn't just a critically disparaged singer, he was obviously a severely damaged dude—there was that time he allegedly ?went to that Florida Denny's to try and hook up with a girl he had met at an airport who turned out to be pranking him, there was that time he got into a fight with 311 in a hotel bar on ?Thanksgiving, there was the ?blowjob video with Kid Rock. The list goes on.

But three years ago, he ?tried to kill himself by? clumsily jumping off a balcony, and got saved by TI. That seems like the kind of hitting-bottom story that would begin a slow climb to redemption, but apparently after Stapp's ?tell-all memoir and ?most recent solo album were greeted with shrugs from the general public his life took another turn for the worse. Obviously something bad is happening to the one-time rock star, even if it has nothing to do with the conspiracy he's denouncing via cameraphone.

Broke and living in a Holiday Inn? Those places average about $90 a night!
Where's this guy's adoring public? Groupies ain't got sofas? Even drummers have girlfriends!

Just the same - prayers and best wishes for the dude.

I guess the other three guys in Creed were pretty smart to start with a new name. It was considered music industry suicide to walk and start with a new name and singer. The incredible part is that they even sounded like a new band. What they have done with Alter Bridge is so much better than Creed.

You have to feel for the guy though. Seems like there is some paranoia going on but being screwed by people can help that along. The music industry is filled with those ready to screw you over.

Miles Kennedy is about 10x the singer too. Poor ol' Scott was f'd from the start. His old man is some kind of fundamentalist evangelical. Also I can't figure that out either how can you be broke and homeless living in a Holiday Inn.

This might shed a bit more light on the situation.

Scott Stapp Relatives Panic He's Out to Kill Obama [911 Tape]
12/12/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Scott Stapp threatened to assassinate President Obama ... and his alarmed wife and sister-in-law made a desperate 911 call to stop him.


Scott had just gone AWOL from a mental facility late last month, when his sister-in-law told the 911 dispatcher he was cruising around his neighborhood, shirtless on a bicycle. She says the former Creed frontman claimed to be a CIA agent and his mission was to kill Obama.

Stapp claimed in a rambling video the IRS is trying to ruin his life because he's been trashing Obama.

Jaclyn Stapp, Scott's wife, joins the 40-minute 911 call, telling the dispatcher Scott had printed out 400 - 600 pages of CIA documents which he supposedly found online, put them in a book bag and took off on his bike.

The 2 women were pleading with the dispatcher to snare Scott and take him back to the psych ward.

As cops were dispatched, Scott placed his own 911 call, saying his wife had stolen his truck and that's why he was on a bike.

When cops arrived Scott told them Jaclyn had pilfered $6 mil from him, and when he confronted her she decided to get him locked up. In the end, police determined Scott did not show enough signs of mental instability to warrant a psych hold.

TMZ broke the story ... Jaclyn has filed legal docs trying to get Scott on a 60-day psych hold, claiming he was deep into various drugs, including coke, weed, PCP and amphetamines. Scott posted a video claiming he's drug free.

On the lighter side - anybody who threatens the life of the President of the United States will probably not have to worry about paying for stays at a Holiday Inn in the near future.

Hope the guy finds help.

He needs to 1) Get away from the wife who he says stole $6 mil from him. Get a sympathetic lawyer who can help get some of that back.

2) He should get off the drugs he's using. If he has no money, he can't afford to buy coke, and he should cut back on his methamphetamine usage until he can get off that. There are herbal alternatives to help people relax. Valerian, Kava Kava, Chamomile etc. Have some Green tea or Ice Tea. Definitely steer clear of Red Bull or those 5 hour energy drinks. No alcohol. His stress and the drugs is making his stress worse.

3) There may be some truth to some of what seem to others to be delusional rantings, the only person who would understand governmental harassment is someone who has or is going thru it. These can include regular people, burned spies, reporters etc. The govt. has historically (since the days of Al Capone) used the tax people to go after people when they want to screw them. They do other things to people who complain about them.

4) The allegations from the sister law - does she have any proof of him having said the things she claims or is it just her word? He needs to be away from her and get her out of his life. If her allegations are true, then he needs to realize he cannot act on his feelings or desires.

From the sounds of Stapp's problems he needs to filter who he discusses them with. He needs to take the problems one at a time and resolve them as much as possible. IF there is a huge conspiracy against him in this country, if he gets a good lawyer to get some of the money back from the wife, he can leave and live in another country. If he's just all mentally effed up right now, he needs to get off the drugs and then look at his situation and make some rational moves to get a bunch of miserable people out of his life (the wife, the sister in law etc.). He has to move and live someplace else. He may need to get a job.

How could he do that? Tell employers, I was a musician but the band broke up, or they couldn't make it. He does not have to go thru his whole drama. Just keep it short and simple.

Did a little research,

http://scottstapp.com/photos/

Note the second photo shows him making the symbol of an Illuminati initiate. Yet he says he is a Chrisitan, or at least he wants to be. Those two groups are diametrically opposed, the Illuminati belong to the dark side, promising the pleasures of this world in return for giving up your soul.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Stapp
He married his wife in 2006, wives have to remain married to someone for a certain amount of time to be able to inherit the man's money, don't they? Sure, she was a model, successful, already rich but he was probably more rich. They have 2 children, one is four and one is seven.
His wife was a beauty pageant winner of Miss NY 2004, Miss USA 2004, and then Miss Florida 2008.

The sister in law is a military person.

Miss New York USA 2004 Jaclyn Nesheiwat (left) visited U.S. troops in Iraq in March of 2004. While in Baghdad, she met her sister, Army Capt. Julia Nesheiwat (right), who is now Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Implementation, Bureau of Energy Resources, U.S. State Department.

TImeline:

2004 Pageant winner in Miss NY and Miss USA pageants.
2004 Invited to the White House and Visits her sister in Iraq.
2006: They are married after meeting at a charity fundraiser.
2007: She has him arrested for domestic violence. Later drops charges.
2007; Daughter Born.
2008: Miss Florida Pageant Winner
2010: Son born
2014 Broke and homeless.

Conclusion: The assertions he is making now are that the govt. is out to screw him. His sister in law is a military person. She may not like him or how he treats her sister. His record company is screwing him over. Well that happens a lot in music. The wife may be a good person who just cannot take any more **** , which is kind of what it looks like since he credited her with bringing him back from his last serious brush with the dark side. If he cannot work it out with her, then he has no choice but to start over and rebuild his life, and be a good Father to his children. When all you have left is your faith, then that becomes stronger. When you come to the end of your road, you cannot take any of the other things with you, you go out with just your deeds, faith and intent.

gina, do you ever wonder why most people on this site think you are crazy?

The fact that you could read that story and think Scott Stapp needs to get away from his wife, not the other way around, would be Exhibit A.

"There may be some truth to some of what seem to others to be delusional rantings"

Or the poor guy could be mentally ill or on drugs.

Occam's Razor applies here. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Sometimes the guy acting crazy and talking about killing the President really is crazy.
