ORLANDO FL (CelebrityAccess) — Former Creed frontman Scott Stapp has revealed in an interview with People Magazine that he is bipolar.
Last fall, Stapp made headlines when he claimed in a video on Facebook that he was penniless and living out of a Holiday Inn. He also made a number of allegations, suggesting that he was "under attack", that his money had been stolen by the IRS or by his friends and that his family was connected to the ISIS.
Stapp now says that the incidents were due to bipolar disorder.
"I had a psychotic break that was brought on by alcohol and drug abuse," Stapp told People Magazine. "I was hallucinating. I drove around the United States for a month, following an angel that I saw on the hood of my car."
Stapp now says that he is receiving treatment for his bipolar disorder and in a 12-step program to address his addiction issues.
"Nothing is more important than my sobriety," he said. – Staff Writers
