BOCA RATON, FL ( — Boca Raton resident and Creed Frontman Scott Stapp may need to undergo a psychological evaluation as part of divorce proceedings underway in Palm Beach County. Read the court docket here.

The West Boca homeowner — who has taken to social media to claim that he’s destitute and now living in a Holiday Inn — is embroiled in what seems to be a nasty divorce with Jaclyn Stapp — a one-time model. The couple has three children.

Stapp, in a rambling YouTube video (see below), claims that he recently found Jesus but more importantly is broke — the victim of shady accountants and industry reps. The claim is not new in entertainment — Billy Joel was famously ripped off by his people, leading to the epic song “Great Wall of China.”


But Stapp, who Palm Beach County records show recently paid off the mortgage on his $3.9-Million Long Lake Estates (off Clint Moore Road) home, says in his video that he just learned of his financial status following a self-initiated financial audit. The audit, he claims in the video, revealed questionable practices — practices that he says he’s been warned not to reveal.

Jason Brodie and Meghan Pendegar both represent Jaclyn Stapp. Brodie filed the motion calling for Scott to undergo a psychological evaluation. Scott appears to be unrepresented.

Brodie also asked a Palm Beach County judge several days ago to involuntarily commit Scott Stapp to a facility to undergo drug and alcohol testing and “stabilization” as part of what’s known as the “Marchman Act.” The hearing — and related courts actions — are confidential. The ruling by Hon. Jeffrey Gillen is not public at this time.
