Scott Stapp, lead singer of the American rock band Creed, was placed on a psych hold in Florida after the divorce from his wife and his drug use apparently led to rambling delusions.

The singer posted a message on Facebook Friday saying he was "stepping back" after TMZ reported a Florida incident in which police found him "incoherent and rambling that someone was trying to poison him." That led to authorities placing him then on a 72-hour psych hold on Nov. 13.

 


Stapp also had posted a video Friday saying that he was homeless and penniless and that he would sometimes go for days without food. His estranged wife Jaclyn Stapp told TMZ that her husband was broke because he would spend all of his cash on his drug habit.

"Jaclyn said Scott hears phantom voices and has visions of people on fire," TMZ reported. "She says he's also paranoid. He left a message with the dean of his kid's school on Nov. 10, warning that the school was about to become the target of an ISIS attack. … Jaclyn says he's on a potentially fatal drug binge, fueled by steroids, weed, cocaine, PCP, Special K, Crystal meth, and various Rx drugs."

Stapp has been at the forefront of Creed's success as one of the biggest musical acts of the 1990s, with its debut album "My Own Prison" selling more than six million units and second album "Human Clay" debuting at No. 1 Billboard charts and selling more than 10 million copies, according to MTV.

Creed became the first band in history to have four rock singles from its debut album to reach No. 1, including the hit "What's This Life For."
