Scott Stapp and his wife, Jaclyn, will be heading to couples therapy just months after the former Creed frontman was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. According to People, the Stapps are are one of five couples who have signed on to be apart of Dr. Jenn Mann’s VH1 reality show “Couples Therapy,” where the two will spend three weeks receiving treatment.
In other Scott Stapp news, the Creed frontman discussed his 2014 drug induced psychotic break in a new interview with ABC’s Nightline (via Yahoo). Stapp revealed he has bipolar disorder yesterday, and also told ABC that he believed that he was a CIA agent trained to kill President Obama, and that he even called The White House on multiple occasions telling them about his assignment.
“I was driving around with … a 12-gauge shotgun in my lap. And I thought that people were trying to kill me.”
“I would have like, maybe a 45-second interval of, ‘What’s going on,’ and then I’d be right back into the psychosis,” he added.
Stapp said his psychosis was so intense that he thought he had been programmed by the CIA — a real-life Jason Bourne — and he would prowl airports looking for suspicious cars.
During his mania, Stapp would stuff his wallet with cash and fill the flatbed of his truck with his gun collection and sports memorabilia, which he said he started giving away with reckless abandon. Stapp said he would pick a homeless person at random, “get him a hotel room, give him $20 and then take off.” He said he also gave away some of his prized possessions — three Salvador Dali sketches — to a Catholic church in Mississippi on a random manic drive through the South.
