Scott Stapp, born-again Christian and former frontman of the popular '90s rock band "Creed," who recently opened up about his past drug and alcohol addiction, has shot down media reports alleging that he has fallen off the wagon as lies and slander and is seeking a "good and honest" lawyer to help him clear his name.

Court documents recently highlighted by the Miami Herald, however, note that Stapp's wife of eight years, former beauty queen Jaclyn Stapp, has filed for divorce alleging that he was on a drug binge last month and has released text messages to support her petition. more >>
