Creed Singer Scott Stapp Shares Two More Videos Detailing Financial Woes
Stapp had originally uploaded the videos to Creed's Facebook page, but the posts were taken down. However, several people had been able to make copies and upload them to their own YouTube pages.
The first video (embedded above) shows Stapp in front of the police department in his hometown of Boca Raton, FL. Unable to get into the building, Stapp pleads his case to his audience. He names two banks at which millions of his dollars disappeared, says that his record company has withheld roughly $50 million in unpaid royalties and alleges that "three or four" business managers have "taken advantage of me, financially." In every situation, he said, his attempts to seek justice have been met with obstacles. "As you can see, I'm on an island here," he stated.
After meeting with the police and filing a report, he filmed a second video (embedded below) from inside his truck. "The fight for vindication, for justice and for the truth to be known is on," he said. "I just want the contracts that have been signed to be honored. You know, I worked hard, just like I'm sure you have, to get your paychecks. And to have that taken from you doesn't feel good."
In place of the videos on Facebook was a statement from Stapp that reads, "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. 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."
