It’s been nearly six months since Bam Margera was permanently fired from Jackass 4 after the 41-year-old failed to make good on the clauses of his contract used to rein in his substance abuse.
Since then, Bam has instructed his 2+ million Instagram followers to boycott the movie, been on the wrong end of a restraining order levied by Jackass director and ex-friend Jeff Tremaine, and made threats against Johnny Knoxville.
It’s now being reported by TMZ that Margera is committed to burning every bridge he’s built under the Jackass umbrella by filing a lawsuit against Knoxville, Tremaine, filmmaker Spike Jonze, Paramount Pictures, MTV, Dickhouse Entertainment and Gorilla Flicks for “inhumane” and “discriminatory” treatment leading up to his firing.
The nail in the proverbial coffin proved to be testing positive for Adderall, of which Bam claims to have had a prescription for for a decade.
Margera also reportedly compared his situation to the Britney Spears conservatorship nightmare.
Jackass 4’s release date is set for October 22, 2021. I can’t imagine that will be an easy day for Bam.
