Bam Margera’s Estranged Wife Is Asking For $15,000 A Month In Child Support As He Goes Off About Not Seeing His Son
Since it looks like assaulting his brother and then running from the cops and drunkenly screaming at his estranged wife, Nikki Boyd, in public have proven ineffective in Bam Margera getting a chance to spend time with his and Nikki’s 5-year-old son, Phoenix; Bam has seemingly taken a new approach to get what he wants: taking to social media to rant about how his family drives him to drink and then threatening to “smoke crack with the bums down at the boardwalk until I’m dead” UNLESS Nikki delivers Phoenix to him immediately since he hasn’t seen his son in two months. It’s pretty doubtful this will work in Bam’s favor.
Nikki filed for legal separation from Bam back in February, and he’s been increasingly sloppy ever since, despite all of the help he’s been offered and thrown away over the years. TMZ says he posted his latest disturbing meltdown about April, Phil, Jess Margera, and Nikki on Instagram yesterday.
The former “Jackass” star just posted an alarming rant on his newest social media account, ripping his family and his estranged wife, Nikki.
Bam says Nikki and his relatives are driving him to drink … and he says waking up every day knowing he’s probably not going to be able to speak to his son, Phoenix, makes things even worse.
At the end of the video, Bam threatens to go down to the boardwalk to smoke crack with the bums until he’s dead or until Nikki allows him to see his son.
Here’s that sad mess:
And Nikki’s lawyer responded to Bam’s deflection:
Nikki’s attorney, David Glass, tells us, “Unfortunately, that’s not how the addictions work. People’s behavior does not drive others to drink. This is a typical defense mechanism, and it shows that Bam may not have learned much in his past addiction’s treatment. You have to take responsibility for your own actions. Nikki sincerely hopes that Bam can first achieve and then maintain sobriety, for his own good, and for the good of their son.”
Nikki also filed for child support and sole physical custody of Phoenix this week and said Bam could have supervised visitation once he completes a rehab program–which presumably isn’t happening at the moment, judging from the video.
Meanwhile, Nikki just filed new legal docs this week seeking sole physical and legal custody over Phoenix, plus $15k a month in child support.
In those docs, Nikki says visitation for Bam can be on the table as long as it’s supervised and he completes rehab programs for drug and alcohol abuse.
But, Bam’s throwing a fit and demanding to see Phoenix ASAP.
Poor Phoenix. And “bums down at the boardwalk,” too.
