Bam Margera ‘missing AGAIN from Florida rehab’ – just two weeks after first escaping the facility
Bam Margera escaped from a Florida rehabilitation clinic for the second time this month, TMZ reported.
The 42-year-old Jackass star was last spotted in Deerfield Beach around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, local law enforcement officials told the publication.
He was wearing a black shirt, black sweatpants and matching sneakers as he exited the LifeSkills dorm without permission.

This is the second time the Pennsylvania native has disappeared from rehab in recent weeks.
On June 13, Bam reportedly told the facility manager that he did not like the clinic’s services and wanted to check in at another clinic.
He then drove away in a black sedan without permission from staff or the court.
His first escape ended when he was found in a Delray Beach hotel. He was taken back to the hospital by officers.

TMZ was told that Bam had not used his medication for several days, sparking fears among his team that he had relapsed.
Bam reportedly left the clinic in part due to his split from his second wife, Nikki Boyd. The site reported that Bam hadn’t heard from Nikki or her four-year-old son, Phoenix Wolf, for over a week before deciding to flee.
“She has not returned any of Bam’s calls or texts and has been absent from his recovery process,” a source told TMZ on Sunday, June 18.

“Due to the breakup, Bam was living in a sober dorm when he illegally exited rehab.”
Back on September 15, Nikki had filed legal documents in Los Angeles to gain full custody of little Phoenix, which would allow Bam (née Brandon) a supervised visit.
Magera’s marriage to Boyd lasted three years longer than his previous marriage to childhood friend Melissa “Missy” Rothstein, which ended in 2012.

In April, Bam privately settled his wrongful termination lawsuit against the creators of Jackass over his dismissal (due to testing positive on Adderall) from the hit fourth film, Jackass Forever.
Margera has previously appeared on MTV’s Jackass, Jackass: The Movie, Jackass Number Two, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3D, and Jackass 3.5.
Paramount+ is currently developing a reboot of the Jackass series, but it’s unclear if the stunt performer – who’s currently charging $100 for cameo – will be involved.
