"Raising funds 4solo album #3. Using same team, Howard Bensen [sic] (Producer) & Chris Lord-Alge (Mix). At the same time, my first book in the fiction category. Need 2fund both projects," reads the description on the campaign page.

Benson produced Stapp's last solo record, 2013's Proof of Life.

A link to Stapp's campaign was posted on the official Creed Facebook page, accompanied by the message "Let's do a couple more projects together my friends. Check link below." The message is signed "sas," presumably for "Scott Alan Stapp."

Last week, Stapp posted three videos on Creed's Facebook in which he claimed the IRS has frozen his funds and he is living in a hotel. The videos have since been removed from Facebook.

On Friday TMZ reported that Stapp was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold after the Madison County Sheriff's Department in Florida found him on the side of a road on November 13. The report states that Stapp appeared incoherent and claimed that someone was trying to poison him. 

As previously reported, according to the Miami Herald, Stapp's wife Jaclyn recently filed for divorce from her husband, claiming he was abusing amphetamines and crystal meth. TMZ reports that Jaclyn has abandoned efforts to have Stapp held and is now talking to the singer and trying to convince him to seek help.
