Steve-O Responds To Bam Margera's Claims Jackass Stars Treated Him Badly
| Last updated
Steve-O has responded after former co-star Bam Margera slammed the Jackass 'family' saying they had 'betrayed' him.
In a lengthy rant on social media, Margera accused Johnny Knoxville and director Jeff Tremaine of making him 'jump through hoops' before removing him from the upcoming Jackass 4.
Posting on social media, 41-year-old Margera said: "So, my family Jackass has betrayed me, abandoned me, rejected me... not all of them, I love all of them and I love them back, but it's specifically Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville.
"So, I feel like my family has done f******* everything horrible to me and made me jump through hoops and walk on eggshells, which is impossible, and strung me along like a f******* puppet to get the $5 million I usually get when I make a movie with them because Jeff Tremaine, Big Brother, and CKY has started it."
Responding to the post, Steve-O wrote: "Bam - the two people you're saying wronged you (Knoxville and Tremaine) are the same two people who organised the intervention which saved my life.
"Everyone bent over backwards to get you in the movie, and all you had to do was not get loaded.
"You've continued to get loaded, it's that simple. We all love you every bit as much as we all say we do, but nobody who really loves you can enable or encourage you to stay sick."
In a series of, now-deleted videos, Margera slated the Jackass crew, calling them 'a bunch of f******* a**holes who belong in hell' before claiming he was 'too Jackass for Jackass'.
He added: "Who the f*** cares if I'm drunk as hell anymore? Jackass has put me through hell on f****** wheels for a year-and-a-half... I wrote them so many ideas, and if I'm not in the movie and they use my ideas, how do you think that will make me feel?
"The last thing I want to do is be in a courtroom with Jeff Tremaine, I love him."
Speaking to TMZ back in April, Margera claimed he was left feeling 'suicidal' after a stint in rehab left him taking '18 different pills' a day.
He told the publication: "This led to suicidal tendencies on all 18 medications that I was on.
"I was like, what's the point in a $5 million contract that I have to walk on eggshells and jump through your hoops, which is already impossible to obey if I'm dead?
"What the f*** is the point of the money if I'm not here anymore because I was going to die of a pill overdose or suicidal thoughts?"
