Jaclyn Stapp Seeking Divorce From Scott


Scott Stapp, the frontman of Creed, has been estranged from his wife, Jaclyn Stapp, for some time now.

She has finally filed for divorce. In addition to that she has petitioned a judge in Palm Beach Country, Florida, to admit Scott into a rehab facility. In her statement to the judge she said that Scott has been using several substances and has threatened to kill himself and his family. Jason Brodie, Stapp’s lawyer asked for privacy during this hard time for her family.

“It is a very painful and personal matter for the family. Jaclyn loves Scott very much. It is now apparent the seriousness of Scott’s health. Jaclyn has taken all the necessary steps to help him. She previously arranged for the appropriate treatment and will continue to try and help him. Her primary concern remains the best interest of their children. Jaclyn asks for privacy for her and her children during this difficult time.”

In a recent series of Facebook videos Scott claimed to be sober, but broke. In one of the videos he said:

“When you can’t get any help from law enforcement, your federal government or even local attorneys, what options am I left with except to make public statements like this, and put it out on the Internet and hope that someone’s going to realize that the rumors that have been spread about me are lies.”

Later he removed all the videos and posted a statement:

“I am going to step back and let God control everything from here on. I should have continued to do that before I allowed my hurt, frustration and emotions take control and post those videos.”
