Creed frontman Scott Stapp was placed on a psych hold after cops say he had drug-fueled paranoid delusions he's a marked man, and his wife says he hears voices and worries his kid will get attacked by ISIS.
TMZ has obtained a Madison County Florida Sheriff's Dept. report which says deputies found Scott on the side of a road Nov. 13 and he appeared wasted, incoherent and rambling that someone was trying to poison him. Cops placed him on a 72-hour psych hold.
Jaclyn Stapp -- who filed for divorce last month -- then filed new legal docs claiming Scott is off the hinges, threatening to kill himself and his AA sponsor, and she says he has the wherewithal to do it ... he has guns.
Jaclyn says Scott hears phantom voices and has visions of people on fire. She says he's also paranoid. He left a message with the dean of his kid's school on November 10, warning that the school was about to become the target of an ISIS attack.
As for why he's out of his head, Jaclyn says he's on a potentially fatal drug binge, fueled by steroids, weed, cocaine, PCP, Special K, Crystal meth, and various Rx drugs.
Stapp posted a desperate video Friday, saying he's broke, sometimes homeless and sometimes goes without food. Jaclyn says it's because he blows all of his money on drugs, and has resorted to pawning personal items to fuel his habit.
Jaclyn dismissed her petition Friday to lock Scott up ... we're told she's now talking to Scott and hopes she can accomplish her goal by communicating with him and convincing him he needs help.
'Lilo & Stitch' Star
We Don't Want Your Ass
On the Strip
11/28/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The star of "Lilo & Stitch" is too hot for the Sunset Strip ... because her ass has just been rejected.
Daveigh Chase -- who was the voice of Lilo -- is the star of the upcoming movie, "Wild in Blue." We're told the flick is real sexy, and that's why it's being marketed with Daveigh's ass as its moniker.
Regency Outdoor Advertising owns one of the best billboards on the Strip ... right at Sunset and Doheny, a stone's throw from 1OAK, Bootsy Bellows and Boa.
The folks at "Wild in Blue" offered the market price of $45K for the month of January to plaster her ass, but Regency balked because the image was just too risque.
We're told Regency suggested producers Photoshop "boy shorts" over the thong to make it more palatable. Ain't gonna happen.
The movie's marketers are looking for another billboard on the Strip, but so far no bites ... bites.
I'd Kill Those Pot-Smoking Grannies
11/28/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Snoop Dogg is scared he'd kill the grandmas who famously smoked weed for the first time.
Our photog spotted The Doggfather outside the Forum in Inglewood. Snoop's certain AARP members would go full flatline if they blaze with him.
But at least one of the old ladies takes issue. Paula (the dark haired one in the video) tells TMZ she'd love the chance to "twist one up with Snoop."
She prefers vaporizers and Snoop likes blunts, but Paula has a middle ground: "He is welcome in my kitchen any day. We can cook pot brownies. He’s too thin, I'll fatten him up if he comes over."
Just like a grandma ... always trying to feed you pot brownies.

Selling Haunted Vegas Lair ...
Exorcism NOT Included
11/28/2014 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans fled his Las Vegas home years ago -- but now he's finally ready to sell the place for dirt cheap ... with one demonic catch.
According to real estate sources ... Zak is unloading his 4,700-square-foot Vegas townhouse -- complete with a chrome toilet, hidden dungeon behind a bookcase, and alleged paranormal activity. All that for $459,000.
Zak tells TMZ he bought the pad for $370K, but claims he ended up with a real demon for a roommate after bringing home a human skull ... for work purposes.
He believes demonic forces yanked him outta bed and shoved his GF down a flight of stairs -- which might be the worst sales pitch ever. Instead of hiring an exorcist ... Zak says he got the hell out more than 2 years ago.
Buyer beware ... unless you're into that kinda thing.

The bearded host says they'll be making a "Christmas PoulTree" today ... which is made entirely out of turkey, chicken, duck and quail -- and will feature 5 layers of poultry with bacon strips underneath each.
Oh, and did we mention it will be stuffed with french fry bacon sausage stuffing?
BTW ... if you want to make a PoulTree yourself ... it'll cost around $1000.

Caused My Downfall
11/27/2014 12:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Scott Stapp believes President Obama sic'd the IRS on him as revenge for pot shots he took at the prez during a 2012 interview -- which is why he's damn near broke now.
The former Creed front man spoke with the Roz and Mocha Show on KISS 92.5 Thursday morning in Toronto ... and claimed his accounts were compromised within two months of the Fox News interview.
Stapp adds, "I believe the IRS situation is definitely a result of me expressing my dissatisfaction with President Obama. Absolutely, 100 percent."
As we previously reported ... the singer claims his estranged wife claims he's delusional and is trying to get him committed. Believing POTUS hangs on his every word doesn't exactly help his case.
Check out the interview ... Scott talks about how much money he has left ... and whether his former band mates have reached out to help.

Devon Still's Baby Mama
I'm Not Trying to Ruin His Life
But I Need More Money
11/27/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Devon Still's baby mama says there's NO court order requiring the Cincinnati Bengals player to pay child support for their cancer-stricken daughter Leah ... but says the two had a "voluntary agreement" which Devon stopped paying in July.
TMZ Sports spoke with Channing Smythe who says the two had worked out an unofficial financial arrangement ... but it fell apart over the summer when Devon wanted Channing and Leah to move to Cincinnati to be near him.
"I don’t feel that it was right for me to move her," Channing says ... "[Delaware] is where all her friends and family are and this is where we have been building our life. He was very upset about that and that’s when he stopped giving me money."
Channing says Devon has been paying for some of Leah's clothes, medical bills and other things -- and she's "grateful" for all of the help -- but says she needs more money from Devon due to Leah's medical condition which prevents her from working.
Channing says she has started the paperwork to get court ordered child support in Delaware -- but so far, they have not reached an agreement.
Channing tells us Devon is a "wonderful father" to Leah and visits her almost weekly -- and takes her to doctor's appointments whenever he can.
As for Still, he issued a statement saying, "I am not going to retaliate against the mother of my daughter ... I am going to continue to allow the court system to handle this matter, as it has been doing these past couple of months."

With Mad Mario Kart Skills
11/27/2014 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Waka Flocka Flame grew up on video games ... but he just met his Mario Kart match -- a 9 year-old boy who LOVES talking crap after beating his ass!
Waka hit up an event for Project Cry No More Wednesday in Compton ... and that's where the rapper was challenged.
You gotta watch the video -- the 9 year-old is not impressed he's going head-to-head with a famous rapper ... he's way too busy dodging bananas and doling out red shells.
Whatever, the Nintendo 64 version still rules all.
'My Five Wives' Dad
Thanksgiving Breaks the Bank
11/27/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
No way to sugarcoat it -- being a polygamist is expensive during the holidays -- but "My Five Wives" patriarch Brady Williams has it more than covered this time around.
Brady has 31 mouths to feed this year ... and the grocery list is both impressive and financially depressing.
- 2 Turkeys
- 1 Ham
- 5 lbs of Yams
- 20 lbs of Mashed Potatoes
- 2 large bowls of Stuffing
- 1-2 gallons of Gravy
- 3 dozen Dinner Rolls
- 5 large Salads
- 1 pot of Corn
- 2 large Veggie Trays
- 1 large Cheese & Cracker Tray
- 1 large tray of Cheese-Stuffed Celery
- 8 cans of Black Olives
- 4 large cans of Stuffed Green Olives (a family fave)
- 1 large jar of Cranberry Sauce
- 4 quarts of Baby Dill Pickles
- 3-4 gallons of Holiday Beverage
That doesn't include dessert ... we're told the Williams clan can choose from 15-20 varieties of pie.
At least they'll be saving on electricity ... all electronics are banned on Thanksgiving. No iPods, computers, phones or TVs permitted.
So you plop yourself on the sofa and do what?
