Creed frontman Scott Stapp was on a 72-hour psychiatric hold while filming the "public statement" he posted on Facebook, TMZ reports.
Stapp was placed on a hold after he was found on the side of a road Nov. 13, blabbering about being a marked man and saying his children were the target of an ISIS attack, says a document from the Madison County Florida Sheriff's Department.
The statement claiming Stapp has paranoid delusions were affirmed by a document filed by his wife Jaclyn in support of the divorce she sought a month ago. Jaclyn also said she believed the behavior was a result of Scott's drug abuse.
Strapp is on weed, cocaine, Special K, crystal meth, PCP, steroids and medical drugs, according to the documents.
The Creed singer posted a video of himself on his Facebook page to quash rumors about him, according to People.
On the video, which has now been deleted, Strapp claimed he is "as sober as can be" and that he had been undergoing routine check-ups to prove that he is clean.
He also claimed that he was broke and there have been days when he was homeless, as well as day when he had nothing to eat. He said he shot the video at a Holiday Inn where he was staying at after a couple of weeks of living in his truck.
Scott claimed the reason why he's broke was because people have been stealing from him, according to Rolling Stone.
"About eight weeks ago, I began an audit of not only my record company but my personal finances," Strapp said. "During the course of that audit, a lot of things were uncovered. A lot of money was stolen from me, or royalties not paid, and that's when all hell began to break loose."
Strapp's band Creed has sold more than 24 million albums since they formed in 1993. Among their most popular songs are "With Arms Wide Open" and "My Sacrifice."
