Scott Stapp is going so crazy, it's almost not even funny anymore.

The Creed frontman, now a resident of Boca Raton, has been at the center of a very public downward spiral for the past couple of months. His wife, Jaclyn Stapp, had to file for divorce after he sent her life-threatening text messages, and he recently accused her of stealing $2,000 of his money.

Turns out, Mrs. Stapp had the singer placed in a psychiatric hold, and now that he's out, he's riding through the streets shirtless on a bicycle claiming to be on a CIA mission to assassinate President Obama.

Scott Stapp needs you to hold him, now. He's six feet from the edge of total mental collapse.

For the past two months, the former or maybe still frontman for Creed has made headlines for his shockingly erratic behavior. From seemingly insane and violent text messages to his wife to government conspiracy theories, there's never been a better celebrity meltdown in Boca.

Now, Stapp has filed a criminal complaint against his beauty-pageant wife for stealing money from his bank account, and on top of that, he wants you to donate to his efforts to write an album and a book.

Of course, there's a counter fundraiser just to get Stapp to stahp.

On Thursday, November 20, tattoo artist and musician Chip Harris was riding his Harley-Davidson Sportster down Okeechobee Boulevard on his way home from work.

Creed Singer Scott Stapp's Wife Tried to Forcibly Place Him in Rehab (Update)

Monica McGivern

There is a certain type of celebrity the world wants, yearns for, even.

It's the type of person who does everything wrong.

This person starts fights with other celebrities, burns bridges, uses copious levels of narcotic drugs, possesses a laughable sort of vanity, and lives a public life filled with contradiction. Some make their madness into a successful business -- like Charlie Sheen or any number of European royals throughout history. For others, such nonsense repeatedly results in all-out cries of oh-how-the-mighty-have-fallen: Scott Stapp, the Creed (or sometimes ex-Creed) baritone turned solo artist is just such a man.

In the past decade or so, the now-Boca-based singer has gone from working on an RIAA diamond-certified album to allegedly heading a crystal-meth-fueled conspiracy theory rager across America.

Around 7 p.m. on September 19, 2012, Young Jeezy and Rick Ross got into an argument backstage at the BET Awards in Atlanta. The war of words quickly turned into a massive altercation involving the Atlanta and Broward residents' respective cliques. But while it was reported that violence spread to the parking lot and might have even led to shots fired, a new lawsuit alleges that chaos unfurled throughout the backstage area, resulting in the injury of a security worker.

According to the complaint, "a large crowd of people charged through a door that was situated beside Plaintiff, in an attempt to escape a fight between the employees, friends and entourage of Jay Jenkins and the employees, friends, and entourage of William Leonard Roberts II, aka Rick Ross."

It must be pretty dope for a young, up-and-coming artist to suddenly hear a song he laid down lyrics for and sang on pop up on the radio.

Not as dope?

When the very same song suddenly pops up on the radio and, instead of the up-and-coming artist, already-established artists Jamie Foxx and 2 Chainz are singing on it.

Yet that is precisely the scenario local artist J Rand found himself in.

Comedy Legend Joan Rivers Passes Away at 81, Can't Make Fun of You Anymore

Categories: News

All hail the first queen of comedic controversy, Joan Rivers, who has passed away at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan at the age of 81.

The news, confirmed by her daughter Melissa and reported in the New York Times, comes after a hard week of medical stay. She was taken to Mt. Sinai last Thursday when she reportedly lost consciousness during a vocal cord procedure, and had recently left the intensive care unit after pulling through a medically-induced coma.

As divisive and brash as she could be, she'll no doubt be remembered for her biting wit, hysterical honesty, and the sheer speed with which she cleverly damaged an ego even into her last days.

Science Confirms What I Already Knew: Bass Music Made Me a Boss

Categories: News

Still from 50 Cent's "In Da Club" music video.
Researches confirm bass-heavy hip-hop is the best for boosting self-esteem.
I'm a 26-year-old white woman who grew up in a mostly-Jewish suburb in Broward County, but the only thing I listen to, day-in and day-out, is thuggish ruggish rap music at uncomfortably loud volumes.

It's not that I relate to songs about selling dope. I think crack is wack. I don't even like songs about strippers. I'm what the less educated among us would call a "radical militant feminist."

So why am I so addicted to ignorant shit? Because those beats fuckin' slap. I need the bass more than I need anything else, and hood shit just delivers like no other genre can. My hipster friends can hate, I don't care. Science has my back.

Maybe you'll be the one who ends up with a hunk of a man like The Bachelor's season 17 Sean Lowe.

Ever wanted to find love as millions watch your every move on national TV?

Well, Saturday's your chance.

ABC's The Bachelor is hosting a casting call at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek for all you lonely ladies (and dudes?) looking for Mr. Right.

"You have to be single, that's a starter!" laughs Lacey Pemberton, the reality show's casting director. "We're looking for women and men. We're not 100 percent sure who we're using for the bachelor yet."

"You also have to be willing to take a leap of faith," she adds. "Aside from that, there really aren't any requirements."

Except for the fact that you have to be over the age of 21, of course.

Say goodbye to Gryphon and Pangaea.

After almost a decade of throwing some of the wildest parties in Hollywood, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Pangaea and Gryphon nightclubs have officially shut their doors.

Both clubs have welcomed some of the most talented names in dance music, including John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold, and other uhntz-uhntz legends to the stage. But they're keeping quiet on the matter.
