Bam Margera is finally getting the help his family and friends firmly believe he needs — days after that on-camera rant at his manager — but he didn’t go easily … TMZ has learned.
A family source says the former “Jackass” star was admitted into a behavioral facility. We’re told Bam was resistant, and family members had to have him committed. The plan now is for him to consult with multiple specialists to come up with a recovery plan.
We’re told friends and family think his drinking had gotten out of hand again, but they also believe he’s suffering from a personality disorder.
TMZ broke the story … Bam threatened to smash his manager’s face after showing up to an empty NYC comedy club where he was slated to perform. In the video, Bam called his manager a “f***ing p***y” and threatened him.
Bam, who witnesses say appeared intoxicated, had canceled his 7 PM show after getting into an argument with his wife, Nikki.
He showed up at 8 PM for his 10 PM show, and lost it on his manager because he expected the club to be full.
