Bam Margera has revealed that he has completed a 12-month treatment program for alcohol and drug abuse.
The stuntman who was fired from Jackass Forever after testing positive for drugs, celebrated the achievement on Instagram after completing a year-long program in Florida.
Along with a video of her son Phoenix receiving a bunch of gifts, Margera shared a photo with the words “1 year” written on her hand. In the caption, he wrote: “ONE YEAR of treatment! #fuCKYeah #bamsback #bamsfree. ”
As reported in TMZ, his wife Nikki and son moved to Boca Raton to live with Margera in an apartment outside the rehab center when he completed his treatment. Margera will attend outpatient classes over the next few months.
Last September, Margera was placed in rehab by police after an incident at a casino in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Follow his exit from Jackass Forever, the stuntman filed a lawsuit in August against the film’s producers alleging violations of his civil rights. He claims the producers made him sign a “Health Agreement” and fired him after testing positive for drugs, which broke his contract.
In April of this year, Margera reached an agreement on a lawsuit against Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, Jeffrey Tremaine, Paramount Pictures and others. In court documents obtained by TMZ at the time, Margera asked to dismiss the lawsuit.
New footage from Jackass Forever is set to release in Jackass 4.5 later this month, along with matches, casting interviews, and never-before-seen stunts.
“Get ready for more stunts and stupidity with Jackass 4.5a brand new feature film featuring the entire crew,” reads a synopsis. Jackass 4.5 released on Netflix on May 20.
