BAM Margera, a stunt performer and reality star, cut from the 2022 Jackass 4 film, previously enjoyed an incredible career before his decline.
Fans are now wondering if Margera is truly missing…
Who is Bam Margera?
Born Brandon Cole Margera on September 28, 1979, Bam is an American skateboarder, stunt performer, television personality, and filmmaker.
The 42-year-old came to prominence in the early 2000s as one of the stars of the MTV reality stunt show, Jackass.
Bam also created the Jackass spin-off shows Viva La Bam and Bam’s Unholy Union.
Throughout his career, he also co-wrote and directed the films Haggard and Minghags.
Since 2013, Bam has been married to Nicole ‘Nikki’ Boyd, a photographer, graphic designer and model.
After getting married in 2013, the couple had one son together, Phoenix Wolf, who was born in 2017.
Prior to his marriage to Boyd, he was married to Melissa Rothstein from 2007 to 2012.
Is Bam Margera missing?
As of June 15, 2022, Margera has been reported missing, according to TMZ.
He allegedly escaped from his court-ordered Florida rehab facility, according to a police report.
Family and friends told the outlet that they are working to get him to return to the Delray Beach facility.
What is Margera’s net worth?
It’s fair to say Bam had a pretty large fortune.
Throughout his career, he has earned a net worth of $20million according to Celebrity Net Worth, due to his time in the Jackass franchise as well as sponsorship deals from his skateboarding days.
However, over time, his fortune has declined, and has a net worth of only $5million.
Did a ‘Jackass’ director get a restraining order against Margera?
Jackass director, Jeff Tremaine, officially got a restraining order against the former Jackass star on July 20, 2021.
Tremaine claimed that Bam had recently threatened his life and a judge granted him a restraining order requiring Bam to stay at least 100 yards away from the director for the next three years.
Bam is also not allowed to contact Tremaine’s wife or kids.
Why was Margera fired from Jackass?
On February 11, 2021, Bam said he was not involved in Jackass 4 in a video posted on social media that was later taken down, according to Movieweb.
“If anybody cares about me don’t go see their movie,” Margera said, according to the outlet.
He also asks fans to send him money using Venmo so he can “blow them out of the water.”
Margera said he was fired from the movie for being a “jackass” and implied he was mulling suicide, according to the outlet.
Bam previously opened up about his issues with bipolar disorder following the video post and said he was going to seek help.
When did Jackass 4 premiere?
Jackass 4 premiered on February 4, 2022, months later than anticipated due to injuries and COVID-19 delays.
It was reported that stars Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O were hospitalized on the second day of filming after a stunt went bad.
The pair were jumping on a full-speed treadmill while wearing “band equipment” when the accident took place.
Both stars were hesitant to even make the film in the first place due to concerns of injuries.
“Filming Jackass at this age is much the same as it ever was, with two big differences–our bones break significantly easier. And it takes less to knock us completely unconscious. Plus longer to wake up,” Steve-O said, according to E! News.
