Are we ever truly ready for the fall when a star plummets from grace? Let's take a look at Bam Margera's net worth now.

What is Bam Margera’s net worth after getting committed?

Are we ever truly ready for the fall when a star plummets from grace? Once a high-flying icon of the skateboarding world and a beloved member of the Jackass clan, Bam Margera has spiraled into a world of despair that has culminated in him being placed on a psychiatric hold, according to recent reports.

Let’s take a look at everything going on and see what light is at the end of the tunnel. Beyond that, let’s take a look at his net worth.

The downfall

Margera, at the age of forty-three, seems to have hit rock bottom after he ominously threatened on social media to “smoke crack until I’m dead” if denied access to his son Phoenix. This disturbing message was aimed at his ex-wife, Nikki Boyd, and immediately raised red flags about his mental health status. Despite earning a net worth of over $1 million, family issues are not something he is immune from.

TMZ reported that the police in Los Angeles took him into custody after finding him behaving erratically at a local eatery, Trejo’s Tacos. Slurring his speech and acting out of character, the police decided that a 5150 psychiatric hold was necessary. What this means for Margera is up to three days in a mental health facility for evaluation and treatment.

In a heartrending Instagram video, the former pro skateboarder confessed his agony at not being allowed to see his son since March 29. Expressing his frustrations with his ex-wife and his own parents, Margera broke down over his inability to communicate with Phoenix.

Interestingly, Margera’s brother Jess sent out a plea on Twitter, urging anyone with knowledge about Bam’s location to contact the LAPD. He expressed his urgency, fearing they didn’t have much time to waste. 

Multitalented misery

Known globally for his audacious stunts and infectious humor on MTV’s Jackass, Margera was once a symbol of youthful exuberance and rebellious spirit. His net worth is estimated to be around a million dollars, a sum largely acquired from his popular skateboarding videos and the subsequent fame from the Jackass series.

He also starred in spin-offs like Viva La Bam and Bam’s Unholy Union, which offered glimpses into his adventurous life with friends and family. 

Margera even owns a 14-acre property known as “Castle Bam”, which includes an indoor skatepark, swimming pool, barn with music stage, BMX track and more. He’s also known to open it up for parties and Airbnb experiences. It earned him the net worth that most class clowns could dream of.

Despite his successful career, Margera has struggled with addiction and mental health issues, moving in and out of rehab centers in recent years. In 2019, his family had him committed to a rehab facility due to growing concerns about his mental well-being.

Born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, as Brandon Cole Margera, he dropped out of high school to pursue a career in skateboarding. Sponsored by big brands like Toy Machine Skateboards and Element Skateboards, Margera made a name for himself in the industry, despite having retired from professional skateboarding in 2017.

Limelight low points

His career in film and television took off when his home videos caught the attention of Big Brother‘s Jeff Tremaine, who invited him to join the Jackass ensemble. Margera’s contribution to the Jackass franchise was instrumental, leading him to spin-off his own shows, including the five seasons of Viva La Bam and the lead up to his wedding documented in Bam’s Unholy Union.

However, Margera’s recent troubles have overshadowed his former glory, and his struggle with substance abuse and mental health issues continues to be a matter of concern. Will Margera be able to pull himself back up and return to a life of stability and joy? We will be rooting for him, as far as we are concerned! As for his net worth, that is a question only time can answer.
