As previously reported, Scott Stapp is broke.

The Creed singer opened up about his dire situation via a strange video on Facebook Wednesday, telling fans he’s been under a “vicious attack” by the IRS, which has frozen his bank accounts and left him “penniless.”

Stapp asserts that money has been stolen from him and insisted in the footage that he’s "sober," emphasizing that "truth will prevail."

Yesterday, meanwhile, Stapp conducted a radio interview and claimed his 2012 criticism of President Obama during a Fox News segment is why the government has made him a target.

"I believe that the IRS situation is definitely a result of me expressing my dissatisfaction with President Obama," he said. "Absolutely. 100 percent."


HOWEVER, Jaclyn Stapp tells another story.

According to TMZ, she filed for divorce from the artist last month and also filed legal documents that allege Scott Stapp has serious mental issues.

She says Stapp hears voices, has visions of people on fire, has threatened to kill himself and is in possession of man guns.

Jaclyn adds that her ex-husband is broke because he spends all his money on drugs such as cocaine, PCP, meth, marijuana and Special K.

She hopes that she can open up lines of communications with the troubled rocker in order to steer him in the right direction. We hope for the same.
