Bam Margera files wrongful termination lawsuit for Jackass 4 firing
By Ray Ampoloquio August 10, 2021
Bam Margera is one of the original members of the Jackass crew.
Unfortunately, due to issues with sobriety, Paramount booted him from the filming of Jackass Forever.
Now, Margera is taking Paramount Pictures to court for wrongful termination.
Margera decided to file a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures, MTV, Jeff Tremaine, Johnny Knoxville, and Spike Jonze, as well as Dickhouse Entertainment and Gorilla Flicks.
Because of what Margera describes in his lawsuit as "abuse and discriminatory treatment" and "wrongful termination", he is now seeking compensation in the range of millions of dollars.
In addition to this, Margera wants an injunction preventing Jackass Forever from premiering on October 22.
To summarize Margera's lawsuit, it all boils down to a "Wellness Agreement" that he claims Knoxville and Jonze forced him to sign.
It's unfortunate that this had to happen between Margera and the rest of the Jackass crew.
