Recent Happenings with Bam Margera

Since the 2011 death of his best friend and co-star Ryan Dunn, who died from drunk-driving, Bam has been having alcohol and substance abuse issues. He revealed this during an interview on VH1 reality TV series “Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn” which premiered on March 16, 2016. Bam appears on the therapeutic show with his parents.

However, after reports of being sober, Bam was arrested for a series of erratic behaviors in Helsinki, Finland where he was vacating with his equally troubled wife, Nicole Boyd (who in early 2016 was arrested for DUI after wrecking their Porsche). In one of the incidents, Bam was seen sitting alone on a restaurant pavement and in another was caught peeing outdoors on a tree. It is, however, unclear if his behavior was related to intoxication.

Prior to the European trip, Margera said he wants to start building awareness on substance addiction. He even made donations to the Tony Hawk Foundation which helps instil healthy habits in kids. Hopefully, the Jackass star can turn a new leaf and kick-start his career once again.

Is He Married, Divorced, Or Dead?

The skateboarder’s married life has not been without its ups and downs. He first met and got engaged to Jenn Rivell, a divorced single mum who was part of his several projects. They parted ways in 2005.

By 2006, Bam was head-over-hills in love with Melissa Rothstein popularly known as Missy. Their marriage attracted huge publicity as it was aired on MTV show – Bam’s Unholy Union. However, things between the two were soon to go south and by November 2012, they thought it best to divorce and did so.

Bam is now currently married to his wife, Nicole Boyd since October 5, 2013. There have not been any rumours of them divorcing for now. From all indications, the couple is happy the way they are withdrawn from the headlines and public discussion.

Following the 2011 death of Bam’s co-star, Ryan Dunn in a car crash as a result of being drunk and driving, Bam hasn’t been himself since then. He has been severally reported to be abusing substances and taking much alcohol. For the much we know, Bam is still alive, married to Nicole Boyd but very much keeping to himself.
