Report: Bam Margera Returns to Rehab Following Second Relapse
Bittersweet news about Bam Margera, again — he's checked himself back into rehab after relapsing, again.
Earlier this month, the Jackass star entered rehab following an arrest at a hotel in Los Angeles, Calif. He had reached out to TV personality and psychologist Dr. Phil for help. Unfortunately, he didn't stay in rehab long and found himself at a bar drinking a beer shortly after leaving, according to TMZ. It was his second attempt at getting sober in a month.
Sources close to Margera told TMZ that he voluntarily admitted himself to another rehab center today (Aug. 22) and intends to stay sober. The previous facilitation he had been in took away his phone, and he wanted to be able to stay in contact with his son, according to the report.
At the beginning of August, Margera had a public meltdown on social media with a plethora of since-deleted Instagram posts, receiving comments from Steve-O and Brandon Novak urging him to get help.
