Creed’s Scott Stapp & Wife Jaclyn Divorcing After 18 Years of Marriage

Scott Stapp and his wife, Jaclyn, are splitting.

The Creed frontman and former Miss New York, who were married for 18 years, are moving forward with a divorce following separate filings.

“Out of respect for their family, Scott intends to navigate this difficult time privately,” a representative for the Stapp wrote in a statement, obtained by Billboard.

Jaclyn, 43, filed for divorce first in June 2022 and later withdrew, and Stapp, 50, filed in May 2023, People confirmed through court documents filed in Williamson County, Tenn.

News of the divorce was first reported by TMZ.

Stapp and Jaclyn Nesheiwat married in February 2006 after meeting at an event for Muscular Dystrophy Association in New York.

The former couple share three children together: daughter Milan, 17, and sons Daniel, 13, and Anthony, 6. Scott has another son, Jagger, 25, with his ex-wife, Hillaree Burns.

Jaclyn previously served as Stapp’s co-manager. He signed with Shelter Management in 2020.

In 2014, Stapp suffered a self-described “psychotic break,” during which the singer, in a haze of drugs and alcohol, became convinced that his family was involved in a terrorist plot. Following a period of intensive therapy, Stapp and his wife began rebuilding their life together. Part of that experience was documented on VH1’s Couples Therapy in 2015.

Stapp is currently focusing on his music. The artist’s mega-selling hard rock group Creed reunited earlier this year with a slate of concerts that continue growing due to overwhelming ticket demand.

“So many positive things have already happened that are just mind-blowing, in terms of the level of Creed’s resurgence,” Stapp recently told Billboard.

The artist is also in the midst of a solo tour in support of his fourth album, Higher Power, which dropped through Napalm Records in March. The set was preceded by the highest-charting single of his non-Creed career, the hard-charging title track, which has climbed to No. 12 on Mainstream Rock Airplay and earned 1.4 million streams to date, according to Luminate.
