Bam Margera is currently in a legal custody battle with his wife, Nicole Boyd, over their son, Phoenix Wolf according to TMZ. Boyd wants Margera to be given full custody, but Boyd will give Margera visitation rights if he has a monitor Boyd approves. Margera will have the right to choose the monitor, however. This is a very unusual situation, as Boyd has not filed paperwork for divorce to end her eight-year marriage with Margera.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for Margera, who also has faced numerous other legal battles with co-creator of “Jackass” Johnny Knoxville and the other cast members. The most recent court documents show Margera suing Knoxville, Spike Jonze, Jeffrey Tremaine, Paramount Pictures, MTV, Dickhouse Entertainment, and Gorilla Flicks for their “inhumane treatment” by being forced to sign an agreement that Margera claims was “psychological torture.”
As TMZ reported, Margera claims they pressured him into signing a “wellness agreement” while in rehab in 2019 so he can be included in the upcoming “Jackass Forever” film. The agreement reportedly mandated regular drug and alcohol tests due to his previous battles with his addictions. Margera claims that he had to take a combination of prescription drugs that made him feel tired and depressed, which also limited his ability to travel and work. Margera also claimed that he was not given an opportunity to show the agreement before signing.
