Creed frontman and denied Kid Rock sex tape co-star Scott Stapp posted a video to Facebook today telling about recent financial problems and people spreading rumors about him. "Right now I'm living in a Holiday Inn, by the grace of God, because there's been a couple of weeks I had to live in my truck," he says in the video. "I had no money, not even for gas or food. I went two days without eating because I had no money and ended up in an emergency room."
"About 8 weeks ago, I began an audit of not only my record company but my personal finances. During the course of that audit a lot of things were uncovered. A lot of money was stolen from me or royalties not paid."
He suggests that people related to the financial theft have been smearing him: "There's people who have taken advantage and stolen money from me, and they're trying to discredit me, slander me, and I've even been threatened that if I went public like I'm doing right now, that any impropriety I've done in the past these individuals can get their hands to humiliate and embarrass me and try to ruin my credibility."
The Miami Herald reported this week that Stapp's wife Jaclyn filed for divorce. According to the Miami Herald, "[Jaclyn] asserts Stapp has been doing so much amphetamines, crystal meth and steroids that he has become a paranoid shell who has threatened to kill himself and harm his family."
In the video, Stapp denies that he is on drugs or alcohol. "I'm sober as can be. Once the rumors started coming out I began getting blood and urine tests once a week just in case someone called me to the carpet on it, I can prove it."
