LOS ANGELES, May 11: After nearly two decades of marriage, Scott Stapp, the lead singer of Creed, and his wife Jaclyn have decided to end their marriage. A representative for Stapp exclusively shared with PEOPLE that the couple is moving forward with a divorce.

The decision follows separate filings from both parties, with Jaclyn initiating the process in June 2022, which was later withdrawn, and Scott filing in May 2023. Court documents filed in Williamson County, Tenn., confirm these details.

An insider close to the couple revealed to PEOPLE that despite efforts to salvage the relationship, Scott and Jaclyn had mutually agreed that their marriage had reached its conclusion. TMZ initially reported news of the divorce.

Scott Stapp, 50, and Jaclyn, 43, share three children: daughter Milan, 17, and sons Daniel, 13, and Anthony, 6. Additionally, Stapp has a son named Jagger, 25, from a previous marriage to Hillaree Burns.

The couple tied the knot on Feb. 11, 2006, after meeting at a gala for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in New York. In March, Scott spoke to PEOPLE about the profound impact Jaclyn and their children had on his life, providing him with a newfound understanding of family.

Throughout their marriage, the couple has publicly expressed their love and commitment to each other. Scott has often shared heartfelt tributes to Jaclyn on social media, celebrating their relationship milestones.

In 2015, the couple appeared on Couples Therapy following Scott’s public struggles with mental health and substance abuse. Despite the challenges, Jaclyn expressed no regrets about their participation, emphasizing the positive impact it had on their relationship.

An insider shared with PEOPLE that Scott’s journey toward recovery and personal growth has been remarkable, attributing much of his progress to his faith and the supportive family environment he and Jaclyn cultivated.

Despite the personal upheavals, Scott remains focused on his music career, with Creed reuniting for the first time in 12 years for upcoming festival cruises and a larger tour in the fall. His recent album, “Higher Power,” reflects on his life’s highs and lows, showcasing his resilience and unwavering passion for music.
