Scott Stapp’s Shocking Reveal: He’s Broke & Homeless
Wow, this is incredibly sad to see on Thanksgiving.
The day before the family-orientated holiday, Creed’s lead singer, Scott uploaded a 15-minute long Facebook video revealing that he is broke, homeless, and living in a Holiday Inn hotel room.
“Right now, I’m under some kind of, pretty vicious attack,” Scott claims in the video. “I still haven’t figured out the reasons why, except, that about 8 weeks ago I began an audit of not only my record company, but my personal finances.”
He continues to explain that shocking things were “uncovered” because of this audit, and that now he is completely penniless. According to Scott, the IRS has frozen his bank accounts — and will not return his funds for 9 to 10 months.
Scott, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse but also claims to be 100% sober thanks to his dedication to Jesus Christ in the video, also used the video to send a message to his two children.
“I think the most important thing for me right now is my son Jagger, my daughter Milan, and my son Daniel,” Scott shares.
“I want my son to know, Jagger, that your dad is sober. No drugs, no alcohol. This is a vicious attack because some people that we know, and at the record company, and outside of that, have stolen quite a bit of money. I guess money can make people do evil things.”
So sad. Our thoughts go out to Scott during this difficult time. Hopefully, he can be reunited with his children and get back on his feet sooner rather than later.
