Broke Creed Singer Asks Fans For €385,000


Just a week after the singer Scott Stapp, of the American rock band Creed, posted a tell-all video claiming to be “completely penniless,” he’s asked fans to donate to his crowd funding page.

The singer’s campaign is to raise €385,000 for his fourth solo album and first novel.

So far the crowd funding page has had 206 supporters, raising €500, although there is still 118 days left to donate.

Stapp writes on the page: “Raising funds 4solo album #3. Using same team, Howard Bensen (Producer) & Chris Lord-Alge (Mix). At the same time, my first book in the fiction category. Need 2fund both projects.”

It is reported that at the height of band’s fame, Stapp was worth an estimated €24 million.

Last week, He posted the confession clip titled ‘Public Statement #1′ on Facebook, explaining that the IRS had frozen his accounts due to a “clerical error”.

In the footage the singer claims that his ”civil rights have been violated”, he apologises to his children for his behaviour, absence and alcoholism and states that his wife tried to have him committed to an asylum.

Stapp says:  “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. 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.”

“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.”
