BAM MARGERA: Suing Johnny Knoxville

Bam Margera is suing JohnnyKnoxville, Paramount Pictures, MTV and others over his firing from the upcoming Jackass movie.

Bam claims "inhumane, abusive and discriminatory treatment" and "wrongful termination...from the Jackass franchise he created.”

According to the suit, Paramount signed Bam for a fourth Jackass film in March 2020 under the condition that he adhere to a “Wellness Agreement” that included multiple daily drug tests. 

Paramount then terminated Bam's contract in August 2020, citing a violation of the “Wellness Agreement.” But he had already filmed scenes and developed ideas, which the suit claims are being used in Jackass Forever.

In a statement, Margera said, “I am ... angry, hurt, and shattered that Johnny, [producer JeffTremaine], [producer SpikeJonze] and the studios and producers ripped off my creativity, content and stunts to make this movie, fired me without justification and refuse to pay for my work. I created this franchise before any of these guys ever got involved.”

Bam is seeking millions of dollars in damages.
