Bam Margera back in rehab after multiple escapes

Bam Margera is reportedly back in court-ordered rehab after he was spotted at a bar in Florida earlier this month following multiple escapes.

According to TMZ, the “Jackass” alum’s latest stint doesn’t require him to stay at an in-patient facility due to his various fleeing attempts.

“They’re gonna try an outpatient approach and pray for different results,” sources told the outlet in a story published Sunday.

Margera, 42, will still be required to stay sober, go to classes and see a psychiatrist, according to the insiders.

A rep for Margera did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

The new approach comes just weeks after he was spotted wandering around a bar in Sarasota after leaving a different rehab facility.

Prior to his spotting, his family posted a statement about his struggle with “mental health and addiction” via Instagram.

“Bam is currently in treatment and we are helping him with his social media while he focuses on his recovery,” they captioned the Aug. 6 post. “We are his family who love and communicate with him to collaborate on his content and updates.”

The “Bam’s Unholy Union” alum has previously attempted to escape from rehab twice.

Margera was reported missing in June, but he was found safe in a hotel room two days later. Just two weeks later, he fled the facility once again and was found again at a nearby hotel shortly afterward.

The TV personality has battled with substance abuse issues for years. He was arrested for a DUI in 2018 – resulting in a rehab stint. Since then, he has frequently checked in and out of rehab centers.

Amid his struggles, Margera’s estranged wife, Nicole Boyd, filed for custody of their 4-year-old son, Phoenix, in September 2021.
