Buzz Nov 2014 14:37PM EDT

Christmas music is typically the territory of Christian artists, country singers, or pop singers looking for a quick cash-in between proper studio albums (though that doesn't mean these cash-ins can't be great).

Creed Singer Scott Stapp Reveals He's Homeless, Broke [WATCH]

Buzz Nov 2014 17:31PM EDT

In a shocking, 16-minute video posted to his Facebook page, Creed frontman Scott Stapp debunked some rumors about him that have been circulating in the press and over the Internet, while also revealing that he has been homeless for the last few months and is currently living at a Holiday Inn. According to Stapp, his current financial situation is the result of unpaid royalties, an IRS audit and unnamed people who are stealing his money from his bank accounts. "I'm sure you've heard the many rumors and slanderous, libelous accusations over the last few weeks," Stapp says at the beginning of the video. "First, I was dead ... Then there were rumors that I'm on drugs and drinking and relapsed and in rehab, all these other things. That's also a lie ... I'm sober as can be." After addressing these rumors about his sobriety, Stapp then reveals that he is "penniless" and that "there are people who have taken advantage and stolen money" from him. "They're trying to discredit me, slander me," he says. "Someone had used my information and changed my online passwords to my bank accounts and transferred all the money out of my bank accounts so I had nothing." To make matters worse, Stapp reveals that the IRS has frozen his bank accounts due to a "clerical error" and will be returning his money in "nine to 10 months," which he plans to battle in court. "I'm gonna fight every single individual that is responsible for this," he says. "Right now I'm looking for an honest, good attorney that's ready to fight and take it all the way to the top."READ MORE
