Remember Bam Margera? Well sadly, he’s not doing so well these days. In a 24-hour Instagram tirade, Bam, 39, begged Dr. Phil McGraw for his help as he is going through some major family drama. His prayers were answered as he documented his trip to the TV doctor’s studio.
The series of concerning videos started on Sunday, August 4. The former Jackass star looked into the camera and stated, “Dr. Phil, I need your help in a big, big way. My family is in shambles. It’s worse than it’s ever been.” The bad boy captioned the post, “#Dr. Phil Bam Margera needs you to save family from falling apart for good.”
In the first of many videos, Bam told Dr. Phil, 68, that his marriage to Nicole Boyd is on the rocks and he is scared she will take their 13-month-old son. “He’s the best and I love him to death, and Nicki knows that. And if we separate, I know she’s going to use him as bait,” the pro skateboarder claimed. “I ain’t playing that f–king game, so you can have him.”
Bam continued to target his mother, April Margera, and stated that he “disowned” her after her response to a recent, unexplained incident in which he claims he “almost died.”
“It was super f–king scary and my buddy witnessed it, and he called my mom saying what happened and she acted like the f–king Phillies lost,” he alleged. “It was unreal. I have it on record. I was like, ‘F–k you forever, Mom. I just heard that s–t and you acted with no emotion like it happens every other Monday.’”
The former MTV personality continued to document his inner thoughts until he was recognized by the man himself. The remaining footage shows Bam traveling to see the famous doctor, including his stop at airport security where he proceeded to put $17,000 in crumpled bills on the conveyer belt. His last post featured him in what appears to be hair and makeup at the Paramount lot. There will definitely be more footage to come, whether it is on Instagram or on the Dr. Phil stage, that’s for sure.
Talking to the famous doctor, Bam stated, “The only person I believe is you.” He explained, “when I watch you, I’m like, ‘That’s what I would have said! That’s what I would have said!’ The only person that I will believe on the planet is Dr. Phil.”
Bam has a history of alcohol abuse and most recently was arrested for driving under the influence. He later checked into rehab but left after 10 days. There is no confirmation if he is still in recovery, but he previously stated that he was “doing better than ever.” Dr. Phil, get this man some help!
