Steve-O shares heartbreaking warning with ‘brother’ Bam Margera as he prepares for ‘death’ of Jackass co-star
STEVE-O has issued a scathing warning about sobriety to his former Jackass co-star Bam Margera as he says he’s preparing for the death of his longtime friend.
The two got into a huge argument on social media, in which Steve-O claimed Bam, 43, was off the wagon and on a dangerous downward spiral.
The fight began just moments after Steve-O welcomed Bam and his five-year-old son onto the stage during the first leg of his comedy tour.
Bam, a professional skateboarder whose real name is Brandon, recently had a near-death experience after suffering multiple seizures following a Covid diagnosis.
Thankfully, the two were able to unite in an emotional union on stage, despite being fired from Jackass in 2020 for failing a drug test.
Later that night, while the two friends were on stage, Bam shared a photo of Johnny Knoxville, himself and Steve-O that seems to reveal a real rift between the two.
“One arm is a best friend who had me back all along, another arm is a poser,” he wrote in the post.
“A professional creation thief.”
He also spoke about Jackass series co-creator Jeff Tremain, who says he’s “too greedy to fit in the photo.”
Bam said he tattooed the phrase “f**k jeff” on his body a long time ago “because I knew who you were all along.”

He finished the fiery caption with “@steveo lots of love and respect.”
In a now-deleted comment, Steve-O slammed his friend for missing the opportunity to spend time with his son and accused him of being “loaded” after the show.
“You say you want a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen,” he wrote in the deleted post, per TMZ.
“I took you on tour in the hope that I could get you to see what’s possible for you if you choose recovery.
“I’ve tried everything I can, but I can’t force you to be honest and do the recovery work.”
Steve-O added that he “prepared” for the news of Bam’s death and hated that he had to do that.
“You’re dying bro and it sucks there’s nothing I can do to save you,” the heartbroken friend wrote.
When asked about the deleted comment, Steve-O reportedly told TMZ that he’ll be there for the former co-star when he actually wants to get sober.
The comment was only public for a few minutes and he said he had nothing further to add.
It comes after Steve-O is said to have told crowds during his tour that he was concerned Bam was “going down a path that would end in an early death”.
He is even said to have compared Bam’s life to that of struggling US pop star Britney Spears and joked about the rehab.
Earlier this year, Bam candidly told TMZ, “Basically I was pronounced dead on December 8th” after a nasty battle with Covid sparked a host of related health problems.
In 2018, Hulk Hogan falsely claimed Bam was dead.
However, the WWE Favorite later corrected himself, stating he mistook Bam for fellow Jackass player Ryan Dunn, who died in 2011.
Hulk apologized on Twitter before deleting the series of tweets entirely — but not before fans realized his mistake.
Bam has yet to respond to Steve-O’s heartbreaking request and appears unfazed as he continues to post hilarious pictures on his social media.
