Scott Stapp’s Downward Spiral Captured on Police Recordings
Singer claims a group of people are trying to kill him and tells dean of his son’s school that the “core of ISIS is within my own family”
New audio revealing the distraught mental state of Creed’s Scott Stapp have surfaced, with TMZ posting four clips taken from various phone calls the singer made last month.
Stapp also said that he was worried that his death had been falsely reported on the Internet and that someone had stolen $20 million from him. In one tape, Stapp asks the dispatcher to tell the officers to be careful when they find him, adding, “With everything that’s happened to me over the past couple weeks”¦ I just want to be cautious.” During a brief exchange with an EMT, Stapp requests to be takenÂ to the hospital, saying he’s dehydrated, dizzy and nauseatedÂ and “probably malnourished” since he had no moneyÂ to buy food.
In another clip from a different 911 call, Stapp attemptedÂ to report his wife, Jaclyn, for stealing his car and trying to sell it, only to be told that because the car was taken by his wife, it wasn’tÂ theft. Stapp also claimed his wife “threatened to blackmail me, and said that if I went to the police about the stolen money then she would release to the public supposed pictures she says she has, or anything else she can do to defame me to ruin my reputation and career.”
Stapp also made a troublingÂ call to the dean of his son’s school on November 10th. He asks to be put in touch with his son, Jagger, whom he says he hasn’t seen or heard from in days, addingÂ that it’s a matter of national security. “People in Florida are at risk,” Stapp said. “I’ve uncovered the core of ISIS is within my own family. Please call me immediately. This is not a joke.”
This harrowing claim comes on the heels of a previously released tape in which Jaclyn says Stapp threatened to kill President Barack Obama. During that call, Jaclyn saidÂ Stapp was “off the drugs” and riding shirtless on a bicycle, carrying two backpacks allegedly containing CIA documents he’d printed and assorted tools. (The Secret Service saidÂ they were taking appropriate action to investigate the claim.)
This latestÂ development in Stapp’s downward spiral comes in the wake ofÂ a video the singer made late last month, in which he claimed he was “penniless” and living in a Holiday Inn. The video arrived just days after Jaclyn had filed for divorce. Her petition contained numerous texts from Stapp that she claimed illustrated his paranoid state. Jaclyn allegedÂ that the singer had left their Boca Raton home in early October and that neither she nor their three children had seen him since. AfterÂ the release of Stapp’s video, Jaclyn filed legal documents to have her husband committed for 60 daysÂ so that he could receive help.
