For Bam Margera, ‘Jackass Forever’ was more like, ‘Jackass Occasionally‘ after he was fired from the movie last fall. He allegedly tested positive for Adderall, which violated the terms of a “wellness agreement” he signed with the producers of the film.
During this time, Margera started acting bizarrely on social media, which had everyone wondering if he relapsed once again. He was bad mouthing Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the ‘Jackass’ crew, even threatening to sue, and now it looks like he has delivered on his threat.
According to his lawsuit, Jonze, director Jeffrey Tremaine and Knoxville coerced him into signing the ‘wellness agreement’ while he was in rehab in 2019 and said that if he didn’t he would be excluded from ‘Jackass Forever.’ The suit claims that he signed the agreement without being given the chance to run it by an attorney. The agreement required regular drug and alcohol tests, as well as a prescription medication regime, according to the suit.
Bam claims the firing over Adderall is bullsh*t because he has been taking the prescription drug for 10 years now. He claims he has been victimized as a result of his mental health issues.
The lawsuit claims:
Paramount’s inhumane treatment of Margera cannot be countenanced. Margera was made to endure psychological torture in the form of a sham Wellness Agreement, and then ultimately terminated for his protected class status due to his medical condition, and his complaints about Defendants’ discriminatory conduct towards him.
Back in May, during an interview with GQ, Knoxville said he wasn’t interested in getting into a public back-and-forth with Bam. “I just want him to get better,” he said.
We’ll see what happens with the lawsuit. Can’t imagine Bam getting anything if he signed a contract. Also, his erratic behavior on social media probably won’t help his case.
