It is not know which of the conditions Bam reportedly failed to abide by, which led to the producers to inform him he wasn’t part of the Jackass 4 project anymore.

The outlet reported that from the start of the project, the filmmakers were worried about Bam’s addiction issues and erratic behavior, but that they wanted him to be part of the project from the beginning.

During his rant last week, Bam touched on the conditions they had for him while asking for fans to boycott it, before getting help 24 hours later.

However despite him getting help, TMZ reported that they were told he is still fired from the project.

The Jackass family wanted Bam to abide by the conditions because they are worried about him and wanted him to be sober.

After his firing from Jackass, Bam feels as if he is being cut out of something he helped create, TMZ noted.

It is unknown what and if there is footage of Bam already filmed for Jackass 4. 

On Friday, Bam admitted he’s ‘manic bipolar’ and seeking help after a drunken rant on Instagram which has since been deleted.

The 41-year-old skateboarder-turned-stuntman showed remorse after revealing his stress at not knowing about the future of the Jackass franchise.

Hours after posting a disturbing video where he detailed suicidal ideation and encouraged his fans to boycott Jackass 4, Bam told his followers that he’s seeking help with his mental health through medical professionals.

‘I have some good news,’ he said in a minute-long clip. ‘I realized that I’m manic bipolar, and yesterday I had to go so bats**t bonkers f***ing crazy because of not knowing the answer for a year and a half whether we’re doing Jackass or not … I had to deal with the madness to finally know the answer.’

On Thursday, Bam shared a troubling video rant slamming the prank franchise and admitting he has previously been dealing with suicidal thoughts. 

‘Now I know exactly what I’ve wanted and it’s going to be f***ing awesome and it’s going to be in a way where everyone wins in the end,’ he said. ‘So I love everybody and there’ll be no bad blood.’

He added: ‘Seeing a bipolar specialist today … to get that underway and other than that, we just have to find a time and place to film all of this rad s***. And you’re all involved. Rock ‘n’ roll.’ 

Margera asked fans to boycott the upcoming Jackass 4 movie in a series of concerning clips, before he accused the production of controlling his life when he was still involved.

The MTV personality, who has long struggled with substance abuse, went on to talk about considering suicide, revealing he went so far as to look up how to tie a noose online.

As Margera started the clip, which has since been deleted but was captured by TMZ, he slurred: ‘Who the f*** cares if I’m drunk as hell or not?’

He later admitted to chugging a glass of wine and seven beers before sharing his thoughts. 

According to Magera, he was shut out of production of Jackass 4 – the uber popular prank film franchise of which he has been a key part. 

‘I’m not in ‘Jackass 4,’ and if anybody cares about me don’t go see their movie because I will make mine way f**king radder if you just Venmo me a dollar,’ he sated. 

‘Jackass has put me through f***ing hell on f***ing wheels for a year-and-a-half, keeping me in Pennsylvania, I couldn’t leave,’ he went said, claiming he had to take multiple breathalyzer checks per day and had to take urine tests randomly while working on previous Jackass projects.

He also said he was forced to take his antidepressant medication in front of someone from Paramount Pictures ‘every single day.’

Bam pointed out how different fellow Jackass-er Steve-O – who has been sober for over a decade – has been treated, remarking on how he’s been allowed to work and travel freely.

He went on to complain about all the money he’s shelled out on rehab in hopes of returning to Jackass.

Bam also worried that they would use his ideas in the movie without featuring him, prompting him to beg fans ‘If anybody cares about me don’t go see their movie’ and ask for money to fund his own project. 

‘Jackass was everything to me,’ he sobbed, before retching and appearing to vomit.

He seemed slightly more lucid in a following video, where his worried wife Nicki Boyd was captured.

While pitching his competing project, Bam casually mentions how his wife found him looking up how to tie a noose online before turning the camera on her.

But he said things have been looking up since he moved to Oceanside, California, got off antidepressants, met new friends and started skateboarding again.
