Scott Stapp of Creed Has Been Sleeping in His Truck
Stapp posted a video (which you can watch below) to Creed's Facebook page where, over the course of nearly 16 minutes, he hopes to clear up some rumors that have been circulating and set the record straight. The problems, he said, started about eight weeks ago when he discovered that a large amount of money was missing.
"I'm under some kind of pretty vicious attack," he said. "There are people who have taken advantage and stolen money from me, and they're trying to discredit me, slander me ... Someone had used my information and changed my online passwords to my bank accounts and transferred all the money out my bank accounts so I had nothing."
He also said that the IRS has frozen his bank accounts "two or three times" due to a clerical error, and that it will take approximately 10 months to clear up the issue. "I don't understand how that's fair in America," he continued. "My civil rights have been violated ... I'm gonna expose and I'm gonna fight every single individual that is responsible for this. Right now I'm looking for an honest, good attorney that's ready to fight and take it all the way to the top."
As a result, he is currently living in a hotel after spending several weeks in his truck. Stapp swears that his much-publicized drug and alcohol problems are behind him, and has been getting tested weekly as proof.
