Scott Stapp Net Worth: Scott Stapp is an American musician and singer-songwriter who has a net worth of $10 thousand. Scott Stapp is probably most famous for being the lead singer of the band Creed and as a solo artist, performing singles, albums and movie sound tracks. Born Scott Alan Stapp on August 8, 1973, in Orlando, Florida, US, he made a name for himself on the rock scene both as a founding member of the band Creed and as a solo performer. It was in 1995 that Scott and Mark Tremonti formed the band together with bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips. They saw their first album release as Creed bandmates in 1997, a studio effort titled My Own Prison. Selling over six million copies and having spawned four released singles on No. 1 Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rick Tracks chart, it turned out to be success. As for their subsequent releases, Human Clay (1999), Weathered (2001) and Full Circle (2009), they all brought to light at least one chart-topping single. After Creed announced they were splitting in 2004, Scott started to work actively on his solo career releasing several songs, the debut one securing place on the #19 position on Billboard 200. Next, he released his debut solo album, The Great Divide, in 2005, followed by his second album, Proof of Life, on November 5, 2013. Aside from his diverse music career, he proved to be an avid philanthropist, having founded the With Arms Wide Open Foundation dedicated to unprivileged children and families around the world.
Scott Stapp Broke?
In 2014 Scott posted a video to Facebook in which he claims that he has been dealing with extremely difficult financial problems. In the video Scott explains that the IRS seized his bank accounts due to a clerical error which left him homeless and penniless. He admits that recently he has been forced to live in his car or in motels. Some days he apparently does not have enough money for food. Pretty sad story considering the fact that Creed sold 50 million albums worldwide during their career and Scott's net worth peaked in the late 90s at $30 million.
The only reason I am skeptical at all is because his claims just seems so shocking and impossible. Is it really possible that a "clerical error" could cause the IRS to seize your bank accounts and royalties for 9-10 months? And what's up with the grainy video quality? We'll keep following this story and let you know of any new updates as they happen.
