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."

OWNED by Little Kid
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?

Jeremy Renner could easily afford to pay someone to move his stuff ... but Wednesday in L.A. the actor showed he's a regular guy by doing some heavy couch lifting.
Hawkeye was spotted near his home moving furniture into a moving truck with one of his friends -- more than most celebs in Hollywood would do ... they have people for that.
Mission not-so-impossible after all.

Creed's Scott Stapp
I'm Homeless and Penniless
Shocking New Video
11/26/2014 10:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Scott Stapp -- the lead singer of Creed and one of the most successful frontmen in the '90s -- says the government has stolen his money and now he's so desperate, he can't afford rent or even food.
Stapp just posted a 15-minute cry for help on his Facebook page, saying the IRS has frozen his accounts and the banks have conspired to rob him of his fortune.
The singer says his wife -- who has filed for divorce -- is trying to get him committed, falsely accusing him of doing meth and showing signs of paranoia. Her divorce docs reportedly contain text messages from Stapp which say, among other things, "Florida is not safe. Biological weapons on the way."
Stapp sent another text which read, "I wouldn't doubt it if the CIA is behind Alcoholics Anonymous." And he warns, "God created you and now God is ending you."
Watch the video ... it's really sad.
A rep for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office tells TMZ they did a wellness check at Stapp's home last week and spoke with both Stapp and his wife. All was well.
Tyga & Kylie Jenner
To Believe They're Not Dating
11/26/2014 2:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Tyga and Kylie Jenner had forbidden love written all over them --well, maybe a little overstated -- as they served up meals for the homeless on Thanksgiving Eve.
The 25-year-old rapper insists he's not romantically involved with the 17-year-old reality star, but there's plenty of smoke ... you'll recall a week ago when he pitched a fit because the club where he was supposed to perform wouldn't let her in because of her age.
So check out the video of Tyga and his blue haired babe at the L.A. Mission. Best part of the video ... Miss California was trying to teach Tyga how to serve up a meal and Kylie came over like a heat-seeking missile to show him who's boss.
