Los Angeles - Creed frontman Scott Stapp says he's broke.

The 41-year-old lead singer of the Grammy-winning band said in a rambling 15-minute-long video posted on his Facebook page on Wednesday that he's living in a hotel.

"Right now, I'm living in a Holiday Inn, by the grace of God, because there's been a couple of weeks where I had to live in my truck," he said in the video. "I had no money, not even for gas or food."

Stapp said money has been stolen from his bank account and royalty payments have not been paid to him.

"Eight weeks ago, I began an audit of not only my record company, but my personal finances," he said. "During the course of that audit, a lot of things were uncovered. A lot of money was stolen from me, or royalties not paid, and that's when all hell began to break loose."

Stapp denied he's taking drugs or alcohol and said he is "as sober as can be".

Creed last toured together in 2012. The band was one of the most successful rock acts of the 1990s, selling more than 40 million albums. Creed won the Grammy for best rock song for With Arms Wide Open in 2001.
