Hiding In Her Closet
It is not that long ago that this singer was A+ list.
The songs from his band were everywhere.
They seemingly came out of nowhere to blanket our airwaves.
It was long enough ago that MTV still showed some videos and numerous from the group were in full rotation.
The singer always pretended to be pious and religiously pure whatever that means.
It was about that time, long before I started the site that I ran into a friend I had not seen in ages.Just randomly we started talking where she went to college and something clicked and I said something to the extent of the singer went to school there.
She said yes and then said she had a story to tell.
Something you have to know about this college at that time when she and the singer attended.
Female students being allowed to wear pants was earth shattering.
It was still frowned upon.
Hair had to be long.
No public displays of affection.
If you can imagine a college where the Duggar family would feel comfortable, this was it.
There was a big scandal at the school involving the singer.
Apparently there was a party off campus.
Booze was there and of course consumption of that was not allowed at the school.
Our singer got one of the female students drunk and raped her.
He picked her because he knew she wouldn’t report it.
Daughter of a preacher.
All of that would equal getting expelled and disowned from her family.
A month later the singer raped another student after getting her drunk.
The same reasons again, she said nothing.
Even though the women didn’t report him, they did share the information between each other.
Just prior to Christmas break that year, the singer showed up at a party late.
He found a student who was drunk and grabbed her and dragged her into a bedroom.
She started fighting him and he ripped her clothes off and tried to rape her.
She screamed and people came in and pulled the singer from her.
He didn’t care.
He knew she wouldn’t report him.
He was wrong.
It turns out she wasn’t a student.
She went to a different school.
She lived in the town though and her father owned the bank that held many loans the school had taken out.
She told her parents who told officials.
Apparently they tried to victim shame for all of about 30 seconds before the dad said his bank would call in every loan the school owed and send out a letter to all of the clients of the bank explaining exactly why they were doing so.
Many of the clients of the bank were donors to the school and did business with the school.
School officials went looking for him and found him in the closet of his girlfriend.
Yes, he also had a girlfriend.
She was expelled because she was naked and he was naked.

Sex, Drugs, Christian Rock ‘N’ Roll: The Fall Of Creed’s Scott Stapp
“We are not a Christian band. This is a question we are asked a lot because of some of the references made in the lyrics. A Christian band has an agenda to lead others to believe in their specific religious beliefs. We have no agenda!”
Stapp grew up in a fundamentalist Christian family with a cruel stepfather, and while he believed in (and feared) God, he didn’t begin embracing Him — insert “born-again Christian” here — until the mid-2000s when his life was falling apart. It still is, actually, with Stapp most recently threatening to kill President Obama, only eight years after a video of him getting a blowjob from groupies with Kid Rock went viral. What happened? A lot.
In 1997, Creed released their debut album, My Own Prison; by 1999, they were one of the biggest bands in the world, and being one of the biggest bands in the world means you have to deal with everything that makes fame the best and worst thing ever. Stapp once said, “When I was first labeled a rock star…I couldn’t bridge that notion with Jesus’ ministry. I saw rock stars — myself included — as self-consumed hedonists and materialists.” The guilt was eating at him, but it didn’t stop him from drinking, taking drugs, and indulging in the flesh, including the infamous tour bus sex tape. He even had a nickname for the hard-partying side of his personality: Rick. – Source
