Monday June 5, 2023 – Troubled former Jackass star, Bam Margera has apparently gone missing again just days after he threatened to “smoke crack until he is dead” if he wasn’t allowed to see his son.
In a tweet on Sunday, Margera’s brother asked for the public’s help in finding the 43-year-old, who is believed to be back in Los Angeles after being spotted in Pennsylvania on Saturday.
‘If anyone in the LA area knows of Bam’s current whereabouts or a hotel he might be at, contact the LAPD immediately,’ Jess Margera urged.
He said he is trying to get the police department to ping Bam’s phone, but noted: ‘I don’t think we have that kind of time.’
Bam’s disappearance comes just days after he posted a rant on social media, saying his family and ex-wife, Nicole Boyd, were driving him to drink.
He then threatened to go down the boardwalk to smoke crack with homeless people until he dies or until he is allowed to see his son, Phoenix, whom he has been separated from since March 29.
‘This is an official message to anybody that cares about me whatsoever,’ Margera wrote on Instagram
‘I haven’t seen Phoenix in two f****** months and I am so f****** fed up. I cry every day, I miss him so much and I know I have to wake up everyday knowing that I probably won’t get to talk to him or see him.
‘So yes Nicki drives me to f****** drink, so does my f****** mom and so does my f****** pep-talking dad who tells me nothing but I am a f****** fat loser piece of s*** drug addict.
‘I am going to smoke crack with the bums down at the boardwalk until I am dead or unless you deliver me f****** Phoenix. So get to work Nicki or anybody that wants to help. I want Phoenix.’
The last time Margera was during an in-person visit in California and has not been allowed to communicate with his child via phone or FaceTime, according to his lawyer Peter W. Thompson.
His wife’s lawyer issued a statement on Margera’s video, urging the TV stuntman to maintain his sobriety.
‘Unfortunately, that’s not how the addictions work. People’s behavior does not drive others to drink. This is a typical defense mechanism, and it shows that Bam may not have learned much in his past addiction’s treatment,’ lawyer David Glass told TMZ.
‘You have to take responsibility for your own actions. Nikki sincerely hopes that Bam can first achieve and then maintain sobriety, for his own good, and for the good of their son.’
Margera split up with Boyd in 2021 and she went to court in September of that year to request full custody of their son.
She filed for divorce this February citing irreconcilable differences, and requested the court award her $15,000 a month child support, as well as legal and physical custody of their child.
In the documents, Boyd said Margera can see their child as long as it is supervised and he completes rehab for drug and alcohol issues.
But Margera has tried to get the judge overseeing the divorce case to throw it out while simultaneously trying to move up the next hearing, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
His lawyer told the outlet that Margera and Boyd had unsuccessfully tried to set up a routine where he would speak to his son via FaceTime, but it never came to fruition.
He said they find it ‘completely unreasonable’ that Boyd will not pick up the FaceTime or phone calls he has made, as it poses no danger to the child, TMZ reported.
Margera is also said to be paying Boyd’s home and car expenses, and remains amenable to working out an arrangement with Boyd and her lawyers for any level of communication.
