Scott Stapp’s estranged wife is trying to get the troubled Creed singer committed against his will to a mental health facility. Jaclyn Stapp and her mother filed legal papers on Wednesday trying to convince a judge to force Scott Stapp into psychiatric treatment. They believe Stapp is delusional and psychotic, and that he poses a danger to himself because he’s allegedly attempting to detox without assistance.

As Gossip Cop reported, Stapp shocked the world this week when he released a video in which the onetime wealthy rocker admitted to being homeless and nearly broke after years of alleged theft by the people he trusted. Stapp insisted that he is sober, and blamed his problems on the IRS having a vendetta against him following Stapp’s public criticism of President Obama.

But Stapp’s issues may be far worse. Earlier this month, the performer was placed on a 3-day psychiatric hold for his erratic and paranoid behavior. His wife and mother-in-law believe he’s still into heavy drug use, including amphetamines, PCP and cocaine. According to TMZ, they believe he’s specifically delusional about a potential ISIS attack on his son’s school, with Stapp also allegedly seized by fears about biological weapons and being poisoned. They think he poses a significant threat to himself and others if he doesn’t get prolonged and rigorous mental health treatment. Gossip Cop will have updates if Stapp is indeed hospitalized.
