Jaclyn Stapp says troubled singer is lying about his sobriety
Two days after Creed frontman Scott Stapp posted a video in which he claimed he was “broke and homeless” his estranged wife Jaclyn has made efforts to have him committed to a psychiatric ward for 60 days.
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.
TMZ report that since the video was posted on November 26, Jaclyn Stapp has filed paperwork requesting to have her husband placed on a 60-day psychiatric hold after claiming that he has lied about his sobriety and is a danger to himself and those around him.
Jaclyn also says that Stapp is “deep into drugs” and “leaving messages that his son’s school is about to be attacked by ISIS”.
She and her mother, Hayat Nesheiwat, want to get the singer committed for 60 days following a similar a three-day stint earlier this month (November). This stay was prompted after Stapp was allegedly discovered by police by the side of a public road in an incoherent state.
Stapp has responded to his wife’s claims, posting the following message on Creed’s Facebook page on November 29.
“I’m going to step back and let God control everything from here on,” he wrote. “I should have continued to do that before I allowed my hurt, frustration, and emotions take control and post those videos. All I can say is that the truth will set you (me) free, and I’m holding on to Jeremiah 29:11 and Isaiah 44:8. This is a test of faith, and I will NEVER give up or lose my faith. No matter what. This will be my last statement until after justice is served. Love to you all my friends.”
Jaclyn Stapp is currently divorcing her husband and has previously claimed he is taking a number of drugs, including amphetamines, crystal meth and steroids.
