To make matters worse for the embattled star, it’s now being reported by TMZ that director Jeff Tremaine, who’s been involved in the franchise since its inception, has filed for a restraining order against Bam after Bam released a scathing video accusing Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville of making him jump through hoops to claim the $5 million he was due from a movie he will no longer be appearing in.
At the time of this writing, it’s unclear about the actions that led up to Tremaine getting the law involved, but Bam’s instability, drug use, and trauma that accompanies being left out of the film is a recipe for disaster.
In April, Bam rattled off the 18 prescription drugs he came out of rehab with in a video that accused the Jackass crew of firing him on an alleged drug technicality.
Vistaril (sedative for anxiety / depression)
Propranolol (beta blocker for blood pressure)
Seroquel (to treat bipolar and depression)
Vivitrol (prevents relapse into drug or alcohol abuse)
Naltrexone (prevents relapse into drug or alcohol abuse)
Zyprexa (treat mood conditions)
Abilify (treat mood conditions)
