    What in the actual fuck is up with Creed singer Scott Stapp? He posted a 16-minute video pre-Thanksgiving, claiming he was broke and homeless, but living in a Holiday Inn hotel. He said that he is not on drugs again, spoke about dedicating his life to Christ and that his bank account was drained by nefarious government agencies.

    Then we found out Jaclyn, his wife of eight years, said he is broke since he is spending money on drugs in her divorce filing, which included paranoid text messages from her husband.

    Other court papers claim that Stapp was placed on a psychiatric hold two weeks before he posted the video.

    According to TMZ, Stapp was placed in a 72-hour psychiatric hold on November 13 after police officers in Florida found him wandering roadside. He was incoherent at the time.

    Sounds like Stapp had a drug relapse. Even his bandmate, guitarist Mark Tremonti, with whom he has a somewhat combative relationship, posted that he tried to reach out to no avail and that he preferred to keep such private matters offline.

    The first video was eventually removed by Stapp, but nothing ever dies on the Internet.

    So if you missed it, it's below.

    Here are other videos that he filmed on Thanksgiving, while dealing with the cops and asking for help with legal matters.

    He claims that he is the victim of significant financial fraud and saying no one wants to help him.

    Stapp then posted this note to Facebook:

    "I'm 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. All I can say is that the truth will set you (me) free, and I'm holding on to Jeremiah 29:11 and Isaiah 44:8. This is a test of faith, and I will NEVER give up or lose my faith. No matter what. This will be my last statement until after justice is served. Love to you all my friends."

    Then, the soon-to-be-former-Mrs-Stapp has also filed legal papers asking authorities to have the singer placed on a psychiatric hold...again.

    What. A. Mess. We send our best out to Stapp, who seems to be having some serious issues.

    What is your take on this Scott Stapp sitch?
