Today in “Sad but Inevitable“, TMZ reports that Bam Margera has been placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold in L.A. The news comes a few days after 43-year-old Bam went on an Instagram rant where he blamed his troubles on his family and estranged wife Nikki Boyd. Yesterday, Bam’s brother, Jess Margera, took to Twitter to ask if anyone had any info about Bam’s whereabouts. Apparently, early that morning, Bam had texted his family, telling them he was “at peace” and had taken “enough pills to stop his heart.” Later that day, law enforcement located Bam by tracking his phone, and a psych eval team determined he needed to be 5150-ed.
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.
Hoo boy. Bam Margera has had a rough few weeks. And a rough year. Hell, it’s been a rough couple of decades for 43-year-old Bam, who’s been struggling with alcohol abuse since his early twenties. So, almost a month ago, Bam was arrested for public intoxication at a restaurant in Burbank after screaming at his estranged wife in front of their 5-year-old son. Woof. Then, on Sunday, things got even worse. That morning, Bam allegedly assaulted his brother, Jess Margera, at their family home in the Philly suburbs. He also allegedly threatened to kill his entire family. Jess called the cops, and Bam fled on foot into the woods. A warrant was issued for Bam’s arrest, but no one could find him. Until today, when TMZ reports that, after four days on the run, Bam surrendered to police to face four counts of terroristic threats, one assault charge, and a final count of harassment. Bam paid his $50,000 bail, is due back in court in May, and took to Instagram to claim his innocence, writing that he plans to evict his brother from “Castle Bam” and sue him for defamation. Did anyone else just hear a long, exhausted sigh coming from Pennsylvania? Probably Bam’s lawyers.
Over the past few years, disappointingly, Bam Margera has traded wrecking shopping carts and April and Phil Margera’s home for wrecking his own second, third, and one-hundredth chances to turn his life around. At this point, every time former Jackass Bam’s photo appears above a post, people likely brace for the worst news, including his good friend Steve-O, who previously said he was done trying to set Bam straight and worries he’s going to die soon. He even somehow managed to vex Priscilla Presley. This time, Bam was arrested for public intoxication after causing a drunken scene inside a restaurant where his estranged wife and 5-year-old son were eating.
Former Jackass (and current asshole), Bam Margera, is having a banner (bammer?) 2023 when it comes to people being done with his constantly regenerating booger-scab antics. First, Steve-O said he’s bracing himself for Bam’s impending death after Bam drunkenly blew the opportunities he gave him to get back to work. Earlier this week, Priscilla Presley said she was already over Bam’s ass before even knowing him because of his (characteristic) misbehavior and lies. And now, according to TMZ, his wife, Nicole Boyd finally decided to file for legal separation.
Priscilla Presley Says Bam Margera’s Claim That She Gave Him Elvis’ Robe And Ring When He Visited Her Home Was A Lie, And Bam Responded
Priscilla Presley has enough on her plate these days, between coming to grips with the tragic passing of her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, and deciding to fight her granddaughter for control of LMP’s life insurance money. So, being roped into the fart cloud that is Bam Margera’s cantankerous and exhausting orbit was probably the last thing she needed right now (or ever). Alas, Bam recently ended up at Priscilla’s house because he WAS friends with her son, Navarone Garcia. Bam posted pics of him and Priscilla on Instagram and implied they were tight, and soon after, claimed she gave him a ring and robe that belonged to Elvis Presley. But, Priscilla just spoke up and said that everything Bam claimed was a lie–she doesn’t even know him and was just cordial with him since Navarone brought him over, and she agreed to the pics with him because Bam said his dad was a big fan. She also lamented that Bam filmed in her home without her consent, she would NEVER give away Elvis’ personal possessions, and the ring and robe weren’t even Elvis’. Bam then apologized to them both and said it was actually Navarone who gifted him Elvis’ stuff, but Priscilla says she and Nav are both completely done with Bam and his clout-chasing messiness.
