Bam Margera will appear in Jackass Forever after all, however it won't be for long.
Johnny Knoxville has confirmed the skateboarder and stuntman will be included in the franchise's fourth instalment.
Variety reports Margera wasn't welcome on the Jackass set after he tested positive for Adderall.
In an interview with outlet, Knoxville says it wasn't an easy decision to reduce the screen time for his longtime pal.
"We wanted him all throughout the movie, but unfortunately that's not the way it worked out," he said.
"It's really heartbreaking. I love Bam. We all love Bam. He's our brother, you know? You just hope that he takes it upon himself to get the help that he needs, because we all care about him a lot."
Margera launched a lawsuit against Paramount, Knoxville and director Jeff Tremaine and said he was wrongfully fired from the film.
He believes he endured 'psychological torture' while working with the team.
In a video that was posted and then deleted early last year, Margera alleged: "Jackass has put me through hell on f***ing wheels for a year-and-a-half."
He alleged Paramount Pictures forced him to take multiple breathalyser tests, give urine samples, and filmed him taking anti-depressants in order to be in the film.
Bam was also furious at the idea of the production team firing him but still using all the stunts he came up with.
"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?" he said in the video.
"The last thing I want to do is be in a court room with Jeff Tremaine, I love him.
"But f***, man, I'm not in Jackass 4? If anybody cares about me, don't go see their movie, because I will make mine way f***ing radder if you just Venmo me a dollar."

Variety reports Margera's name appears at number 45 out of 49 performers in Jackass Forever's end credits.
Johnny Knoxville was asked whether he was surprised that Bam brought forward the lawsuit after everything they've been through.
"Yes and no. Because he's in such a way that anything's possible. So, something will break your heart - but it might not shock you," he replied.
Steve-O revealed in December that Margera is in a guardianship and a programme at the moment.
Joined by longtime Jackass stuntman Brandon Novak, Steve-O explained on the Wild Ride! With Steve-O podcast: "It's not a conservatorship, it's a guardianship.
"The conservatorship has financial implications, with a conservatorship they're in charge of all of your money and everything.
"With a guardianship, they kind of leave your money out of it, and the guardianship they're just like - there's rules you have to abide by and he's forced to be in."
