Again. He's apparently going to be on Dr Phil and has made up his own alphabet/language? Dunno if he's on drugs or having a breakdown. Sucks to see.

I follow him on instagram and it's been weird as shit for the past few days.

The former "Jackass" star took to social media early Sunday morning with a pair of rambling videos and basically begged Phil to take his situation on, saying ... "Dr. Phil, I need your help in a big, big way." He explains that his "family is in shambles," while adding that "it's been worse than it's ever been, ever."

That's drugs, baby.

Still, yeah, guy has been getting worse and worse since Dunn, he never recovered. I feel like Ryan was probably one of the more sensible people in the crew who would rein him in when he got too out of control. Crazy to think Steve-O of all fucking people is doing better for themselves than most of the Jackass crew.

By the way, it's $65 for a personalised video clip from Bam if you wanna check in before he checks out: https://www.cameo.com/bam__margera

He's been going off the deep end since his bro Ryan Dunn died.
I see Tesseract Tesseract saying it all the time. We are all capable of becoming monsters. We're also all capable of becoming completely crazy like this as well. We're all just a few tragic experiences away from losing it.

The easier someone's life the more difficult tragedy becomes as well. It just isn't as normal to experience tragedy in the first world and when it strikes it can be truly devastating.

That's rough. I saw a documentary that Vice did on him a few years back and he really took Ryan Dunn's death badly. He was doing badly then but this looks even worse. Hope he's able to get help soon.

Heard about this on the radio this morning. He may be going crazy for real. He was loopy and out of his mind.

Hasn’t he been on a downward spiral since Dunn’s death?
That's when it became most visible, but according to a lot of the Jackass guys and other friends/family, he'd been going off the rails for a while beforehand. Dunn's death just gave him an acceptable excuse to use when people started noticing.

Is still to be a "NINI" (NEET )?

Too immature for his age, its sad that he does nothing in life other than being in social networks like a mentally retarded person, apart from being a person with clear bipolar disorder.

I'm not going to waste my time knowing what is in his life.

I like Bam , always have. The shitty thing is especially on recent vids I have watched and talking to people who know him he has alot of vultures that leech off of him even now, some really shitty people and he is the kind of person who needs that attention so he just keeps sinking. Most everyone else from those days have turned around and got out and do their thing and I do not think he can handle it. Hopefully this is a legit attempt to reach out.

As usual, the hottest one tends to also be the craziest. The story of how her and Bam met and ended up together is all sorts of wrong, too.

Jenn met Bam at the age of 15 at a skate park while Bam was 9, and they started dating when she was 23 and he was 17. If I remember correctly she used to be his baby sitter. She was in CKY, early Viva La Bam, Haggard, etc. She accepted Bam's marriage proposal when she turned 30 on June 5, 2003. What started the break up was that Jenn thought Bam cheated on her with Jessica Simpson. Before the actual break up, but when things were rocky between them and they were fighting all the time, Jenn trashed his house, stole stuff from him, made purchases on his credit cards, crashed the Audi S4 he gave her. Basically she turned into a psycho bitch. And that’s why Bam ended it with her. He mentioned that he considered breaking up with Jenn before and that he also had an affair with Missy while still dating Jenn.

Bam once punched Jenn and gave her a black eye.

Steve-O is the only one of the Jackass crew that I still follow, much thanks to his Youtube channel. He managed to reinvent himself, both as a human and as an artist, and is the only one outside of Knoxville who is relevant and Worth watching. His path to redemption and sober Lifestyle is a big inspiration. His video about how he met his dog Wendy from Peru is Amazing. He seems like an all around great guy.

Steve-O and Pontius are probably the best out of the bunch, though I do love Knoxville. Pontius is just a fucking funny guy, and seems chill as hell. I did see even he got annoyed last week and called Bam out publicly for being an asshole to his mom and wife.

When certain people come into the rich world of purchasing big homes, and cars, ect. Sometimes the rich communities do their best to screw up their whole life. Kayne and the republicans did this, trolling him about changing the anti-slavery law and ect. Basically they prey on the uneducated new wealth they don't like to the point of causing them mental illnesses.

Going around about removing the english language comes from trolling him about kings that used to do this in europe or something. Using history to troll him into such a state of live streaming things like this.

in other words... a cheap "Doctor"
Not by any means a "cheap" doctor. No need to arbitrarily reduce someone's capabilities/knowledge.
Basically. He most likely has the skill to be a real doctor but he'd rather be on tv since they makes him way more money.
He most certainly is a real doctor with his own practice outside of the show. However, I think he wanted to retire but the network apparently offered him a boatload of money. I think he wanted to retire a while ago. I imagine any of us would do the same if we were in his position. When you are so well off you want to take a break but someone offers you a stupid amount of money you know you don't need but.... well you get the idea.

I loved Bam's shows. I found them to be absolutely hilarious back in a time. I am honestly not surprised he ended losing his marbles if this is true. He could be marketing himself too but maybe it is too soon to tell.

Is he drugged? He seems drugged.

If he isn't doped up on something and this is him sober then godspeed, spider-man.
