Steve-O On What His Relationship With Bam Margera Is Like Post Jackass Lawsuit

Bam Margera and Steve-O

The Jackass gang has practically constantly relatively been limited — as well as they’d practically need to be to be, provided what they do. They’ve caused such disastrous tricks on each various other (as well as themselves) going back to the initial program, which ran in the very early 2000s. Of program, that group dynamic might have transformed in the middle of manufacturing on Jackass Forever. Ahead of the film’s best, Bam Margera filed a lawsuit versus several of his partners, because he was unreasonably disregarded from the film. Now that the lawsuit drama has settled down, Steve-O is opening up regarding his partnership with Margera.

Bam Margera has actually been experiencing a great deal these last couple of years, particularly with his addiction struggles and rehab stints making headings since late. This is something that Stephen “Steve-O” Glover has actually experience with, though he has currently been sober for more than a years. That devotion to preserving soberness also motivated Glover to abandon any type of discomfort medicine for the many serious injuries he’s received in his stuntman profession. Margera also went without pain meds when suffering a skate boarding injury lately for the very same factor.

The Jackass alums’ lengthy background as well as comparable battles would normally produce a limited bond been them. And that’s is something that turned up when Stephen Glover consulted with People while advertising his brand-new publication, A Hard Kick in the Nuts: What I’ve Learned From a Lifetime of Terrible Decisions. During the conversation, Glover addressed the seemingly contentious lawsuit and stated that despite that, he and has old buddy are still on good terms:

I have a great relationship with Bam, I have a great relationship with everybody else. And that’s despite me having brought to the table some fairly negative energy myself. We’ve certainly bumped our heads. We’ve, you know, had our conflicts and our friendships have endured, and that’s really, really special.


Bam Margera and Steve-O have been working together and getting their asses kicked together for around two decades now, so they have actually definitely been through a lot. Even though things may have appeared a little rocky between them more recently, that’s a bond that apparently can’t be broken. For Steve-O, that apparently goes for all of the Jackass crew, too.

During the same interview, he went on to explain that the cast is relatively drama-free, despite the suit as well as his short-lived feud Johnny Knoxville. Of course, the only exception there would be Bam Margera. Here’s what the author as well as stuntman says about his friends, exactly:

There’s not a lot of tension or negativity among the other guys. Really, just the one outlier would be Bam with the situation that unfolded with him and the lawsuit and everything.


So even though Bam Margera may be the “outlier” these days, that doesn’t seem to have affected the amount of love his longtime pal has for him. Their partnership appears to be one that has lasted through thick and thin so far and could further survive any kind of trial or tribulation, including a lawsuit.

As for Steve-O, he seems to be reveling in his professional and personal lives. Aside from having actually dropped his recently new novel, he’s also in the midst of his own personal stunt tour. The “Bucket List” tour sees him traveling the country and performing stunts that even Jackass wouldn’t allow him to do. (I don’t recognize whether to be excited or nervous.) While it looks like he’s doing things solo for now, one can still hope that he as well as Bam Margera find a way to collaborate on some kind of project down the road.

Until then, check out Jackass Forever and other installments in the film series by streaming them with a Paramount+ subscription.
