Bam Margera’s Parents Comment on ‘Jackass’ Star’s Latest Breakdown

UPDATE: After Bam Margera initially agreed to enter rehab, he bailed on the treatment program after a few days. Shortly after leaving rehab, Margera was involved in a bizarre incident in at a bar in a Hollywood hotel that led to his arrest.

Jackass star Bam Margera appeared to have a public meltdown following a series of posts on social media. Margera made inflammatory comments about his mother and wife, going as far as to say that he has disowned his mother and that he can’t stand his wife. According to Page Six, the 39-year-old is now seeking help.

“[My wife is] stubborn,” Margera said in one video. “It would drive a person f–king bonkers. When they say, ‘Bam might be going crazy,’ f–king A — maybe they’re right.”

Margera has a history of substance abuse issues and recently completed his third stint in rehab.

According to his mother April, Margera is seeking help from Dr. Phil.

“He’s actually on his way to Dr. Phil and he’s with the DocX guys and [in] like, just about an hour, so it’ll be all right,” she said.

She previously told Page Six: “I think for anybody who has any issues with substance abuse or alcohol, it affects an entire family, and of course we’re no exception for that. It’s a family dynamic that you have to try to work through. You never know what you’re going to get. It’s in epidemic proportions these days. Many families are going through it — not knowing what to do, when to help. There’s hope maybe it’ll fix itself. It ends badly sometimes. Every family doesn’t want it to happen to them.”

Margera has had a history of alcohol-related incidents, most recently being arrested for DUI in January.

While speaking of his issues, Margera said that he had been struggling with alcohol as a way to cope with the passing of his close friend and fellow Jackass star Ryan Dunn.

Dunn passed away shortly after his 34th birthday on June 20, 2011, after his vehicle veered off of the road and crashed into a true. Dunn had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit in the state of Pennsylvania and it was believed that his vehicle was traveling more than 130 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone.
