Scott Stapp, the born-again Christian frontman of the popular rock band Creed, has opened up about his psychotic breakdown that progressively worsened over last winter and admitted that it was brought on by drug and alcohol abuse while adding that he has also been diagnosed as bipolar.
The Grammy Award-winning 41-year-old made headlines last November when he posted a video claiming that he was broke and "under some kind of vicious attack" from family, friends and even the IRS.
He alleged that they were stealing money from his bank account and doing evil things. In the video, Stapp also explained that he was forced to sleep in his truck for weeks at a time and once didn't have money to eat for two days. more >>
Legislators in Texas are considering bills that would seek to enforce a ban on gay marriage even if the U.S. Supreme Court decides to declare such bans unconstitutional.

The estranged 19-year-old son of the father of 10 Kentucky homeschool children who were seized by police last week due to concerns with the family's off-the-grid lifestyle testified in a Monday custody hearing that his father physically and sexually abused him as a small child.
Joe and Nicole Naugler's hopes of getting their 10 children back in Monday's hearing was crushed after Alex Brow, Joe Naugler's adult son from a previous relationship who hadn't seen his father since he was removed from his custody at the age of four, testified in Breckenridge County Court that his father is a very "mean" and abusive man.
Although the public and media were not allowed in the courtroom for the hearing due to the fact it concerns children, Brow, along with Breckinridge County Sheriff Todd Pate, spoke with media outside the courtroom after the hearing and said only reason why he decided to make an appearence was to help his brothers and sisters. more >>

In a classic example of life imitating art, Modern Family's Emmy-nominated actress Sofia Vergara has found herself in the midst of a national conversation surrounding her twin girls. The twin girls are currently in the embryo stage, cryogenically frozen in a Los Angeles lab, as Sofia and her former fiancée, Nick Loeb, battle out their future.
However, this isn't the typical Hollywood custody battle that one has become accustomed to reading in the pages of US Weekly or InTouch. According to Nick's complaint filed with the Los Angeles County court, it's not a matter of Sofia or Nick arguing over who gets the kids during future holidays, it's whether these two children should be even given a chance to live at all.
Nick has stated he wants to raise the twins; Sofia's lawyer claims she "is content to leave the embryos frozen indefinitely as she has no desire to have children with her ex." They previously had signed an agreement stating that consent of both parties was needed to bring the embryos to term. more >>
