Creed Singer Scott Stapp Claims He’s Homeless in Shocking Facebook Video
Creed fans, gather 'round, because you're going to want to hear this. About 10 hours ago, singer Scott Stapp declared he's homeless and penniless via a video aka "Public Statement #1" on his Facebook page. In the video, he assures fans that he is indeed sober and to not believe any of the lies being told. Stapp opens up by saying all of the "slanderous" and "libelous" accusations are false and swears he is "under some kind of pretty, viscous attack."
First, he says that the death hoax was obviously a hoax. Next, he says that he is sober and has not been doing drugs, drinking, or going to rehab. Just in case someone tries to say otherwise, Stapp started getting blood and urine tests to be safe. He swears he is as "sober as can be."
Stapp then moves onto say that eight weeks ago he began an audit and soon realized money was stolen from him. Not only has he "rededicated his life to Christ" and will forgive those trying to ruin his reputation, but he is now living in a Holiday Inn, has no money (because the IRS froze his bank accounts, because of a "clerical error" aka they had an "address mix-up"), and he even went two days without food. He is "completely penniless." The singer also says he is being threatened if he talks about any of this with the public (which he's clearly doing with this video), but that's not going to stop him from seeking legal action.
As of right now, he believes the "truth will prevail" and that "God has a reason for this." With all of that said, Stapp doesn't want to be labeled as a victim, especially since there are more important issues to worry about, like the Ferguson case. As he says in the video, "I'm not playing victim here and I'm not asking you to feel sorry for me. OK? I'm just telling you the truth about what's going on right now in my life."
At the end of the video, he declares "America's not right" and that our rights and freedoms are being "violated." He continues, "This is not the country I grew up believing in. This is not the America that I want for my children and their future."
Now, there is no official word on whether any of what Stapp says is true, but Stapp's video seems like a cry for help. Maybe he's hoping his fans, family, and friends will see this and lend a helping hand whether that means financially or otherwise.
