Scott Stapp is attempting to raise $480,000 for a new solo album

Amidst a tumultuous week that has seen renewed concern over his drug use, Scott Stapp has launched a crowdsourcing campaign to fund a new solo album and his debut novel.

Stapp is seeking to raise $480,000 for the album, which will apparently see him reunite with producer Howard Bensen and engineer Chris Lord-Alge. Meanwhile, the book will be his first in the fiction category.

The veracity of the campaign will no doubt be questioned given the events of the last week. The Creed singer has posted a series of video confessionals in which he claimed to have millions of dollars stolen by former associates. He also said the IRS had frozen his bank accounts.

In response, Stapp’s soon-to-be ex-wife filed a petition to have Stapp involuntarily committed into a psych ward for 60 days. Jaclyn Stapp says Scott has been using amphetamines, crystal meth and steroids, and she fears that he is now detoxing himself without any assistance.
