Bam Margera Family Gets Him into Treatment After Comedy Club Meltdown

3/12/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bam Margera is finally getting the help his family and friends firmly believe he needs -- days after that on-camera rant at his manager -- but he didn't go easily ... TMZ has learned.

A family source says the former "Jackass" star was admitted into a behavioral facility. We're told Bam was resistant, and family members had to have him committed. The plan now is for him to consult with multiple specialists to come up with a recovery plan.

As you know, Bam's been in and out of rehab in the past for alcohol abuse.

We're told friends and family think his drinking had gotten out of hand again, but they also believe he's suffering from a personality disorder.

TMZ broke the story ... Bam threatened to smash his manager's face after showing up to an empty NYC comedy club where he was slated to perform. In the video, Bam called his manager a "f***ing p***y" and threatened him.

Bam, who witnesses say appeared intoxicated, had canceled his 7 PM show after getting into an argument with his wife, Nikki.

He showed up at 8 PM for his 10 PM show, and lost it on his manager because he expected the club to be full. 

Bam Margera Rips 'F**king P***y' Manager & 'Ho' Wife ... Bails on Comedy Gig

EXCLUSIVE

3/8 -- It's a little clearer now why Bam canceled that 7 PM show, and why he was agitated when he showed up.

Bam posted a video blasting his wife, Nikki, for bolting in their car with his credit cards. He said he couldn't check in to his hotel prior to the show because of his "street ho" wife. His words.

No word yet if Nikki and Bam ever reconnected Thursday night. 

Bam Margera is unloading on his manager in shocking new footage obtained by TMZ ... screaming obscenities and threatening violence at a comedy club in New York. 

Folks at the West Side Comedy Club tell TMZ ... Bam's team asked the venue to cancel the 7 PM set, but were still hopeful about the 10 PM gig. But when Bam showed up at 8 PM and the place was empty the former "Jackass" star started ripping his manager a new one.

Ya gotta see the video ... Bam is PISSED, and he calls his manager a "f***ing p***y" before threatening to smash his face. 

We're told Bam appeared intoxicated upon arrival, and even though they tried to explain that the audience wouldn't start showing up until 9 for a 10 PM show, he was seething.

After beefing with his manager, we're told Bam stormed out of the venue and flipped off the parking attendants as he climbed into a waiting car. 

As you know ... Bam's been in and out of rehab for alcohol abuse

The comedy club scrapped both of Bam's sets, which are part of his tour through New York and Connecticut.

Bam Margera Friends Worried He's Gonna Die ... Despite AA Meetings

1/20/2019 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bam Margera's friends are seriously worried about his ongoing battle with alcoholism, even though he's clearing the legal hurdles stemming from his DUI case.  

On the same day fellow 'Jackass' star Brandon Novak told us he's concerned over his buddy's drinking habits, Bam's lawyer was busy submitting legal docs informing the court that Bam was ahead of schedule with the terms of his DUI sentence. 

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Bam completed a 3-month online alcohol program and attended 10 AA meetings. He's still on probation.

Brandon told us he was super sketched out when Bam checked himself out of a Bay Area rehab facility earlier this month, because he believes Bam could end up killing himself if he doesn't clean up his act.

Bam Margera I'm Worried He's Gonna Die ... Says 'Jackass' Pal Novak

1/10/2019 10:59 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bam Margera insists he doesn't need professional help when it comes to booze, but one of his closest friends believes Bam's very life is at stake after he prematurely left rehab.

'Jackass' star Brandon Novak -- who used to appear on the stunt show with Bam -- tells us he is deeply concerned after Bam checked himself out of a Bay Area rehab facility this week. He explained his decision to leave on social media.

According to Bam's lengthy journal entry, he says he realized he didn't need to be in rehab a few days into his latest treatment, his third time. Bam says he bailed because he didn't need any detox or medication to kick his alcohol cravings.

Not only that, but Bam said he was sitting around doing nothing in rehab and feels unproductive. Plus, he says he was missing out on important business opportunities, and needed to leave to make money and keep his mind occupied.

The only time we FAIL is when we lose the ability to TRY AGAIN....... happy New Years 🎉🎉🎉🙏🙏🙏

A post shared by Brandon Novak (@brandon__novak) on

Well, Brandon doesn't think it's that simple. He tells us he and some of Bam's closest family members and friends staged an intervention late last year because they were genuinely concerned about Bam's drinking ... and wanted him to kick the habit once and for all.

Even worse, Brandon says he believes Bam could end up killing himself if he doesn't get clean. He tells us, "enable an addict, bury an addict." FWIW, Brandon is fully sober now after struggling with addiction through much of his adult life. 

Bam says he's with loved ones at the moment, but Brandon says he's unaware of his whereabouts.

'Too Stupid to Die' Stars Bitch Slaps with Taped Thumbtacks Watch the Bloody Mess!!!

11/2/2018 2:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Too Stupid to Die" stars sure know how to get a kick outta slapping each other ... blood, cuts and scars be damned.

Chad Tepper and Zach Holmes appeared on "TMZ Live" Friday and told us a little bit about why they enjoy taking on the roles of this generation's "Jackass" ... taking a LOT from the playbook of Bam Margera and Steve-O. Chad and Zach summed it up with one word ... boredom!!

If you don't know ... Chad and Zach's new show on MTV -- which premieres Friday night at 9:30 -- has them putting themselves through some of the most ridiculous stunts ... like when Zach threw on a firecracker vest. You can guess it didn't go too well for Zach.

And, just for fun -- again, their words -- Chad and Zach had a little something up their sleeve for us. Actually, more like on their hands -- taped with thumbtacks, for a little slap game.

It goes without saying ... kids, do not try this at home.

Steve-O Watch Chuck Liddell Take a Swing at My Head!!!

9/20/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

America’s favorite jackass is back at it again … we’re getting the first look at how Steve-O is prepping for his new stunt tour … and it’s a miracle he has any brain cells left!!!

Steve-O is teaming up with Chuck Liddell to psych himself up for his upcoming Bucket List Tour ... and you gotta see what the "Jackass" star came up with!!!

Steve-O crams his dome into a makeshift helmet and uses his ear to tee up a golf ball as the MMA legend busts out a driver and takes a monster rip. That’s got to hurt -- fore sure!!!

Lucky for you, Steve-O suffered a better fate than the golf ball ... and he's starting his live multimedia tour this weekend. 

Steve-O tells TMZ ... the tour includes explicit footage of him ejaculating as he falls out of an airplane, riding a bike under general anesthesia, a vasectomy world record and the stunt that left 15 percent of his body covered in 3rd degree burns!!!

Thanks, Chuck, for letting Steve-O live to tell his tales. 

 

Steve-O Bam Off The Wagon ... Sad For My Friend

8/25/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Steve-O is an expert on rehab and substance abuse ... and he's torn up over the recent troubles of his old friend and "Jackass" co-star Bam Margera.

We got Steve-O out in L.A.'s Franklin Village ... and he told us how he's broken up by news of Bam's relapse. 

As we reported ... Bam was robbed at gunpoint during a super sketchy cab ride in Cartagena, Colombia ... and handled it by downing his first drink in more than 7 months.

Steve-O drops some insight into the struggles Bam and other alcoholics face on a daily basis -- with a spot-on metaphor for the whole situation. He also has an opinion on Bam's claim he had been sober since he went to rehab back in January following his DUI arrest.

If there's one person who can get through to Bam ... it's got to be Steve-O. 

Steve-O on Corey Lewandowski He's Digging His Own Grave!!! Defending 'Womp, Womp'

6/23/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Steve-O's got a real disdain for Corey Lewandowski but he's all for giving the guy a platform ... cause the guy keeps digging himself into a hole defending his "Womp, womp" comment.

We got Steve-O out in Hollywood on Friday and wanted to get his take on the political pundit's quip after Zac Petkanas shed light about a disabled immigrant child being separated from her mother.

The snarky comment hit too close to home for Steve-O, who is horrified at the idea children -- let alone disabled children -- are being ripped apart from their parents who are crossing the southern border.

Check it out ... Steve-O says Corey -- who still refuses to apologize for mocking the 10-year-old girl -- is only making matters worse trying to explain himself. And Steve-O's loving it.

Bam Margera Sentenced in DUI Case

EXCLUSIVE

Bam Margera just avoided jail time in his DUI case ... instead getting probation, AA meetings and some fines and fees.

We broke the story, Bam was pulled over by the CHP back in January for being on his phone while driving. Cops detected a strong scent of alcohol on the "Jackass" star, he took a breathalyzer and failed and was eventually charged with two counts of DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell us he was hit with 3 years probation, has to attend an alcohol program, pay fines and fees, go to AA meetings and go through a "live in" program.

Margera checked himself into rehab shortly after the arrest.

Steve-O I'm Getting a Vasectomy ... Doing It For the Dogs!

EXCLUSIVE

There ain't gonna be any lil' Steve-Os scaling cranes or lighting themselves on fire anytime soon, or ever for that matter, according to Steve-O who is on his way to Puerto Rico to get a vasectomy, but he's not doing it alone.

We got Steve-O and his pooch, Wendy, at LAX about to board a flight to Puerto Rico where he'll not only be helping with ongoing hurricane relief, but also spaying and neutering 1,000 dogs and cats. Steve-O says he believes in the cause so much he's doing it to himself, although it sounds like he's got another agenda.

You'll have to watch the video to find out who's playing nurse in the OR and also for Steve-O's fiancee's reaction.

Steve-O I'm Engaged!!! And Have A Dream Wedding Idea!

EXCLUSIVE

Steve-O just might've pulled of the craziest stunt of his life ... he got engaged to his girlfriend, Lux Wright!!!

Steve-O popped the question Saturday night onstage at the end of a comedy special he was filming in Denver with his "Jackass" buddies and family in the audience, and when we got him Sunday at LAX he gave us a firsthand look at the ring he put on Lux.

If he sounds like a new man rather than the guy known for putting a black widow spider in his mouth for shits and giggles, just wait till you hear his dream wedding plans ...

Good luck, bro! We're rooting for you!

Bam Margera Charged with DUI

1/18/2018 9:56 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bam Margera has officially been charged with 2 counts of DUI ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. City Attorney's Office has charged Bam with 1 count of driving under the influence and 1 count of driving with a .08 or higher. If convicted, Bam could face up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine, though that's unlikely. 

Although he's struggled with alcohol abuse for years ... this is Bam's first DUI, and first-time offenders in L.A. County rarely get jail time.

TMZ broke the story ... Bam was busted earlier this month after cops saw Bam on his cell phone. Once pulled over, cops conducted field sobriety and breathalyzer tests before arresting the "Jackass" star.

Bam checked into rehab last week.

Steve-O Snow Angels in Rocket Fuel Makes 'Jackass' Look Tame

7/7/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If you thought Steve-O was wild in "Jackass," then strap in for his new project that supposedly puts Johnny Knoxville's stunts to shame ... with things like human snow angels doused in burning rocket engine fuel.

Steve-O posted a video Thursday in which he's covered in boils from what look like 1st or maybe even 2nd degree burns ... from the "fire angels" stunt. He won't show us the stunt ... just the aftermath. It's part of a new comedy special Steve O's doing with "Jackass" director Jeff Tremaine.

No word on a release date yet -- but this sounds epic ...  and painful.
