Jackass star Bam Margera is 'getting help for manic bipolar disorder' after drunken rant about 'boycotting' new film

JACKASS star Bam Margera revealed he is "getting help for manic bipolar disorder."

Yesterday, the actor went on a drunken rant and called for "boycotting" the new Jackass movie.

Bam posted a video on Instagram captioned: "A plan where everyone is happy in the end."

In the clip he revealed: "I have some good news. I realized that I'm manic bipolar… Yesterday I had to go "bat s**t bonkers f**king crazy because of not knowing the answer for a year and a half, whether we're doing Jackass or not, I had to go f**king bonkers.

"I had to deal with the madness to finally know the answer of exactly what I want, and it's going to be f**king awesome. And it's going to be in a way where everyone wins in the end. So I love everybody, and there'll be no bad blood this way. It's going to be f**king awesome.

"So 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 this rad shit. And you're all involved, rock and roll."

Yesterday, Bam shared another video on Instagram, admitting he had relapsed and had multiple beers and glasses of wine before filming for the post.

He asked his fans: “Who the f*** cares if I’m drunk as hell or not anymore?”

The TV personality blamed being left out of Jackass 4 for his relapse, telling everyone he was put “through f***ing hell on f***ing wheels” while in Pennsylvania for it and had random sobriety tests.

He added: “I had to wake up every day with a handful of anti-depressant pills I would have to show Paramount Pictures that I took them and swallowed them, every single day.”

Some asked if Bam was “OK,” while others assumed he wasn’t and tried to uplift him and steer him in a better direction.

One tried to explain to him: “The people around you aren’t your true friends for letting you drink or relapse”

Another brought up Bam’s 3-year-old son Phoenix, who he shares with his wife Nicole Boyd.

Others encouraged: “Stay healthy and mentally strong for that beautiful boy! You are the man Bam!”

Bam said he was fired from the movie for being a "jackass" and implied he was considering suicide.

In the video, he also asked people to send him money using Venmo so he can "blow them out of the water" with a competing project.

Jackass 4 is set to premiere in September despite delays due to the coronavirus outbreak and assorted injuries.

Bam reported that stars Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O were hospitalized on the second day of filming.
