Famous skateboarder Bam Margera has been part of the ‘Jackass’ series since the very beginning, alongside the likes of Johnny Knoxville and others. However, he was removed from the upcoming ‘Jackass Forever’ for a multitude of reasons, especially due to his drug addictions.
Bam Margera went on to sue Paramount and others for firing him from the upcoming ‘Jackass Forever’ film. The film was then delayed to next year, but Steve-O made it clear it had nothing to do with Margera’s lawsuit.
Last month, Bam Margera made his way to a rehabilitation facility in Florida in the back of a police car. While speaking to TMZ, Bam Margera claimed he was photographed with a drink in his hand at a Florida casino and it resulted in him getting dragged by the police to rehab.
Margera stated that he had spent 140 days in a facility in Arizona for his manic bipolar disorder before being transferred to an outpatient facility in Florida. He was taking daily outpatient classes in Florida, where he was staying with a friend and relative, and his wife and son were coming to visit.
When their flight got delayed, he spent time at a casino. Fans took photos of him when he seemingly had a drink in his hand. A concerned loved one saw his and alerted law enforcement.
Margera stated that it was all a misunderstanding and added that he has been back in rehab for two months and is determined to work on himself so that he can see his son and get back to filming. We hope Margera manages to clean up his act as soon as possible.
