Scott Stapp’s Wife Requests 60-Day Psych Hold For Creed Singer

On Wednesday, Scott Stapp, the former frontman of Creed, posted a video on Facebook claiming he is sober but homeless and the victim of theft and fraud. New details emerged on Saturday that allege the singer has been less than truthful.

Stapp’s estranged wife, Jaclyn Stapp, filed paperwork to request Stapp be placed on a 60-day psychiatric hold, claiming he is lying about his sobriety and a danger to himself and others, TMZ reported.

Jaclyn, along with her mother, Hayat Nesheiwat, alleges Stapp is “deep into drugs” and has left messages for the dean of his son’s school saying the school is going to be attacked by ISIS, that biological weapons are coming, that he has been poisoned and that he has threatened to harm people. Jaclyn says Stapp has been pawning his possessions to fuel habits that include “steroids, weed, cocaine, PCP, Special K, crystal meth, and various Rx drugs,” Rolling Stone reported.

Both women say Stapp is trying to detox himself, and represents a danger to himself as well as those near him, Entertainment Weekly reported.

In the video, Stapp said he is penniless and living in a hotel. He claimed he has been the victim of theft and that unnamed individuals have threatened him. On Friday night, Stapp updated his Facebook page to remove the video and leave a new statement.

I’m going to step back and let God control everything from here on. I should have continued to do that before I allowed my hurt, frustration, and emotions take control and post those videos… This will be my last statement until after justice is served.


Jaclyn filed legal papers alleging Stapp has threatened to kill himself and others with drugs that include PCP and cocaine. Stapp had reportedly spent three days in a mental facility earlier in November.
