Earlier this year, Bam Margera’s wife, Nicole Boyd, filed for legal separation. In her filing, Boyd cited “irreconcilable differences” which led to her marriage falling apart. She also requested both legal and physical custody of their son, Phoenix Wolf, but shared that she was open to allowing Margera supervised visitations.
However, per a recent video he has uploaded to his newest social media, as reported by TMZ, Margera claims that he has not seen his son in two months. Within this video, Margera goes off on his family members, claiming that Nikki, his estranged wife (as transcribed by The Pit), “drives [him] to fuckin’ drink.”
Adding to this comment, he also shares “So does my fuckin’ mom, and so does my pep talkin’ dad who tells me nothing but I’m a fat fuckin’ loser piece of shit drug addict fuckin’ loser.”
He continues to make other intense accusations, including that his mom is a “manipulator”; Margera even brings up his brother Jess, claiming that he “stole” Castle Bam.
Toward the end of the video, Margera goes on to share the following: “I’m gonna smoke crack with the bums down at the boardwalk until I’m dead unless you deliver me fuckin’ Phoenix. Get to work Nikki, or anybody who wants to help. I want Phoenix.”
Regarding their son, Boyd has recently filed for sole physical and legal custody and has requested $15k a month in child support. Reportedly, the legal team representing Margera claims that Boyd won’t even let Bam talk to Phoenix over FaceTime. In response to this video and Margera’s comments about his estranged wife “driving” him to drink, Boyd’s attorney David Glass provided the following to TMZ:
“Unfortunately, that’s not how the addictions work. People’s behavior does not drive others to drink. This is a typical defense mechanism, and it shows that Bam may not have learned much in his past addiction’s treatment. You have to take responsibility for your own actions. Nikki sincerely hopes that Bam can first achieve and then maintain sobriety, for his own good, and for the good of their son.”
