Not good. Creed frontman Scott Stapp was placed on a psychiatric hold days before his confessional Facebook video, TMZ reports.

According to documents obtained by the site, the self-declared homeless musician was found on the side of a road on Nov. 13 by cops and appeared inebriated and incoherent, and was reportedly rambling that someone was trying to poison him. TMZ reports police then placed him on a 72-hour psych hold.


Following the hold, his estranged wife Jacyln, who has filed for divorce, filed new documents claiming Stapp threatened to kill himself and his AA sponsor and that he hears voices and has visions of people on fire. Stapp also reportedly left a message at his kids’ school on Nov. 10 warning the dean the school was under an ISIS attack.

On Wednesday, Nov. 26, the “With Arms Wide Open” singer claimed in a confessional video posted to Facebook that he’s been living in his truck and at a Holiday Inn because he’s broke and is a victim of “financial theft.”


“I had no money, not even for gas or food,” Stapp said. “I went two days without eating because I had no money and ended up in an emergency room.”

Despite his wife’s accusations, Stapp said in the video he’s “sober as can be.”
