Creed frontman also claims he's being chased by a group of people who want him dead
Phone calls made by Creed’s Scott Stapp to police have been revealed online, including one in which he claims that “the heart of ISIS is in my own family.”
The alarming claims come amid a series of four calls which have been published by TMZ. All of the calls were made in November 2014 with two of them made from the side of a Florida highway after abandoning his car.
In the Florida call Stapp tells the police that he was being chased by a group of people who wanted him dead. When asked on the identity of his assailant, Stapp replied: “I don’t know, I’ve been running for about six or seven weeks. I’m trying to keep them away from my family.”
Perhaps the most disturbing call came on November 10 when Stapp called his son Jagger’s school demanding to speak to the boy. Claiming that the call relates to a matter of national security, Stapp said: “People in Florida are at risk. I’ve uncovered the core of ISIS is within my own family. Please call me immediately. This is not a joke.”
Other phone calls published online by the US publication include on in which Stapp expresses concern that he had $20m stolen and that his death had been falsely reported on the internet and another where he says his wife, Jaclyn, stole his car from him and was attempting to blackmail him.
Earlier this year Stapp, who claims he is currently sober, alleged that the IRS have frozen his bank account and that his “civil rights have been violated” leaving him homeless. It is estimated that Stapp had a wealth of £19 million at the height of the US metal band’s success.
Jaclyn Stapp is currently divorcing her husband and has previously claimed he is taking a number of drugs, including amphetamines, crystal meth and steroids. She also allegedly told the police that her husband is a paranoid schizophrenic and is “threatening to assassinate” President Obama.
