Professional skateboarder, stunt performer and television personality Bam Margera rocketed to fame in the MTV reality show Jackass. The 39-year-old says it was when he joined the cast of Jackass that he began drinking and abusing other substances.

“Yeah,” responds Bam, adding, “Before, it was like a fun party where it was like ‘let’s go get messed up and do some crazy stuff.’ Then, it just became a point to where I felt so terrible in the morning that I knew if I instantly would crack open a beer, I would feel better.”
In early August, 2019, after being thrown off a commercial flight for allegedly being too intoxicated to fly, Bam, who adamantly denies the claim, posted numerous videos to his Instagram account, publicly asking for Dr. Phil’s help.
