Well, this is gnarly. Scott Stapp, lead singer of one of the worst bands ever, Creed, allegedly threatened to kill President Obama, according to a 911 call made by his estranged ex-wife and sister-in-law, and obtained by TMZ. The call was placed last month and obviously Stapp has not made good on his alleged threat, but it’s further evidence that the rocker is dealing with mental health issues. (Previous to this incident, Stapp had raised concerns when he took to the internet to claim that he was broke and homeless, and then was found by police on the side of a road, incoherent and claiming to have been poisoned.)
On the 911 call, Stapp’s soon-to-be-ex Jacklyn claims Stapp had suddenly left the mental health facility he was staying at, fleeing shirtless on a bike and claiming to be a CIA agent on a mission to kill the President. He was allegedly carrying a backpack with printouts of CIA documents found on the internet. Keep reading »
Remember Scott Stapp, the lead singer of Creed and new tentative Mitt Romney supporter? Well, this one time, he almost died, but the rapper T.I. was there and saved him. No. Shit.
It seems Mr. Stapp had been drinking and drugging and had his arms wide open while hanging out on the balcony of a hotel. He climbed over the balcony railing and fell 40 feet, sustaining some major injuries. But who was there to help him up when he fell? No, not the “Touched By An Angel” lady, but rapper T.I. Stapp laid out there for two hours and then a “guardian angel showed up — the rapper T.I.”

Scott Stapp is the lead singer of ’90s band Creed. Creed are a bunch of Nickleback Jrs. — they used to be, like, the most hated band in the world until Chad Kroeger and Co. unseated them. Nowadays, Stapp is busy punditing about the upcoming election on Fox News. He’d really like another Reagan, but might just settle for Romney! Important, if you’re the type to make your political choices based on how your favorite ’90s musicians will vote. But more importantly, Stapp now looks like Quagmire on “Family Guy.”
Back in 1999, Kid Rock and Scott Stapp of Creed made a little tape of them partying and getting blowies (thanks for the new term, Amelia) from groupies in a tour bus. The 45-minute video was supposedly stolen out of the safe in Stapp’s house in 2006, and fell into the hands of Red Light District, the company that brought you “One Night in Paris.” They released a preview online, but were sued for invasion of privacy by Stapp, Kid Rock, and one of the female stars of the video—all independently—before they could release the full thing. The case was settled in 2007—and the tape never to see the light of the day. But that isn’t keeping Stapp from talking about it. Keep reading »
