On Instagram this week, Steve-O wrote that he was “bracing” for the passing of his troubled Jackass co-star Bam Margera.
Margera, 43, a former substance abuser, is on tour with Steve-O.
Yet, during a conversation on Instagram, Steve-O accused Margera of infidelity and said, “You’re dying, brother, and it stinks that I can’t do anything to save you. ’.
By posting an old picture of himself sandwiched between Steve-O and their Jackass co-star Johnny Knoxville, Margera sparked the feud.
The relationship between Margera and Knoxville has been rocky ever since she filed a lawsuit against him for wrongful termination from the 2021 movie Jackass Forever but later dropped the claim.
Margera said: “One arm is a close friend who has had my f***ing back all along, another arm is a poser” in the caption of an Instagram throwback that has since been deleted. an expert creator burglar. Jeff Tremaine wouldn’t fit in with this scene because he is too avaricious. ‘.
A restraining order against Margera was sought in 2021 after Jeff Tremaine, a producer and co-creator of the Jackass franchise, accused Margera of harassing him.
Margera uttered the words “F*** Jeff” in his latest caption. Because I’ve known who you were my entire life, Jeff, you may recall that I had that tattooed on me years ago. I love you and respect you, @steveo. ‘.
After leaving a long reply that he quickly deleted, Steve-O expressed his deep response to his friend’s alleged actions.
“Bam, last night you were on stage with your five-year-old son at my show, and you were fortunate enough to spend another day or two with him – then as soon as you left my show, you stayed up all night getting drunk enough to think it was a good idea to post more vile nonsense like this,” he said.
“I hope you understand how awful that is. Even though you say you want a relationship with your son, your actions make it clear that you don’t. ‘.
“I took you on tour with me in the hopes of getting you to realize what’s possible if you choose recovery,” he said. Although I’ve done my best, I still can’t force you to be truthful or carry out the healing process. ‘.
I wish you could understand how much I’ve dreaded anticipating hearing of your passing, but you’re making it clear that I have no other option, he said in closing. It stinks that I can’t save you, brother, but you’re dying. ’.
He took down the tweet, but he maintained his original views and offered to help Margera get clean if he was sincere.
Margera has accompanied Steve-O on his tour, helping him with new content while making comparisons to Britney Spears and his problematic former co-star from Jackass.
The 48-year-old comedian chose Margera, who claimed he was “basically pronounced dead” at a hospital in December, to be the opening act for his The Bucket List Tour, and the two friends are currently on the road.
Bam’s comeback after numerous stays in rehab and a number of health issues was launched by the duo, who have been performing to sold-out crowds across the country.
According to TMZ, Steve-O shocked his audience last weekend at the Elsinore Theatre in Salem, Oregon, when he invited professional skateboarder Bam on stage to help him with his content.
Steve-O explained, “My great friend Bam here is new to the idea of putting together an act. I’m here to help Bam solve this problem, so. So, if you would, please give your name. ‘.
I’m Bam Margera, and I’m the Britney Spears of Jackass, Margera replied.
The Viva La Bam singer talked about his relationship with the pop star who was the subject of a highly contentious 13-year conservatorship during which she accused her father of mismanagement and abuse.
“I’ve had a legal guardian making decisions for me for a year,” Bam said. I recently finished my rock and roll tour of ten different rehabs in Florida over the course of a year and a half, and now a judge has taken away all of my rights. ‘.
Since his credit card had been taken from him so frequently in rehab and jail, Bam, who was seated onstage across from Steve-O, told the audience that he had it tattooed on his arm.
The ink was useful when Margera and his fellow rehab patients were chauffeured to the movies.
They refused to buy us popcorn or soda, so I came back with an enormous amount and distributed it to everyone. ‘.
After a while, Steve-O posed a simple yet humorous query that caused a response from the audience.
And with all the rehabs and jails, what’s the plan now? he asked, grinning at Bam. “You see… I can lift the curtain and reveal that I wanted to bring Bam on tour because I’m extremely terrified of him. ‘.
Bam, it’s getting pretty uncomfortable to be waiting for the news of your passing, Steve-O told the crowd. I can’t take it anymore, man. I’ve been preparing myself for that f***ing bad news. ‘.
So I wanted you to join me on tour, stick around, see what’s possible, and help you put together your act,’ he continued.
You have this arc, Steve-O told Bam. “All these funny stories, jokes, and pieces. If it doesn’t end happily with you being successful in your career, happy, healthy, and a good father, then it’s all been for nothing. ’.
And that is what I want for you, brother,” Steve-O added to end a touching scene.
