Ex-Creed frontman Scott Stapp has been slapped with a lawsuit from a former business associate for failing to repay $60,000 (GBP33,000) he borrowed for a doctor's bill.

The rocker reportedly asked for the cash to pay Beverly Hills, California, doctor DAVID KIPPER - known for his controversial rehab techniques - for services rendered in 2002.

The doctor developed a bad reputation earlier this year (04) when rocker Ozzy Osbourne filed a complaint with the MEDICAL BOARD OF CALIFORNIA, claiming that Kipper over-prescribed addictive anti-psychotics and tranquillisers.
