Their honeymoon was in Dubai. During an appearance on LA Ink in 2008, Bam told Kat Von D about $13,000 in damages that occurred during his wedding celebration, explaining, “I was kind of ready for it, though. I was like, ‘I’m inviting the Jackass crew. If something doesn’t get broken then that’s not right.'”

In regard to the drinking binge, he said, “I may get a divorce… booze helps.” In October 2010, He told Howard Stern that he and Melissa were living in separate cities, they meet once a week, and that she knew that he had girlfriends.

According to an article by www.thesun.co.uk on 29th May 2018, Hulk Hogan had tweeted a picture of himself with his arm around Bam, captioning it: “Damn Bam I wish you were still with us, I sure would love to hang out again my brother love u miss u HH.” Shortly after, he deleted the tweet and issued an apology explaining that he’d confused Bam with the late Ryan Dunn.

Bam Margera CKY

Bam began shooting videos of himself and his friends skateboarding and doing stunts, which finally turned into the CKY video series. He then independently released CKY. CKY2K, and CKY3. CKY4 has also been released. CKY stands for “Camp Kill Yourself”, which is a name shared with his brother Jess Margera’s band, CKY.

The band named itself CKY as a tribute to the film Sleepaway Camp. The early videos feature many of Margera’s friends, who include Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, Rake Yohn, Chris Raab, Brandon Novak, and others who form a loose collective known as the CKY Crew. The history and also the relationship between the video and band projects are heavily interlinked.

Bam Margera Jackass

Following the CKY success, Jeff Tremaine a former Big Brother editor noticed Bam’s videos and drafted him into the team which would eventually become MTV’s Jackass. Bam and Ryan Dunn became mainstays of the cast while the other CKY crew members played supporting roles to various degrees.

Bam went on to appear in Jackass: The Movie, Jackass Number Two, Jackass 3D, and Jackass 3.5. Various skits in the first Jackass movie were CKY style pieces filmed in and around West Chester, but similar scenes in the second movie were removed after the arrest of Vincent Margera Bam’s uncle, on suspicion of him inappropriately touching two minors.

Bam Margera Viva La Bam

After Jackass, Bam was given his own MTV series titled Viva La Bam. The show ran for five seasons between 2003–2005. It followed Margera and his crew as they performed various stunts and missions. It was primarily filmed in West Chester, Pennsylvania but also visited New Orleans, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Brazil, Finland, Mexico, Amsterdam, and Transylvania. In addition to the regular series, special episodes have included “Viva La Spring Break” and a “lost” episode included on the Viva La Bands CD.

Following the show, in 2007, Bam was engaged to Melissa Rothstein and the wedding was filmed for Bam’s Unholy Union as a follow-up to Viva la Bam. The show follows Margera, Melissa, and their friends in the lead-up to the wedding. Also in 2008, he had a “prominent, non-sex role in” a pornographic film by Gina Lynn called The Fantastic Whores 4 with Brandon Novak. He appeared on Nitro Circus in 2009.

Bam Margera Skate

During 1997 and 1998 at the beginning of his career, Bam was sponsored by Toy Machine Skateboards. He was a member of Team Element, the demonstration team for Element Skateboards from 2001. As of 2016, he was no longer on the team. Margera was also at various times sponsored by Speed Metal Bearings, Adio Footwear, Electric Sunglasses, Volcom, Landspeed Wheels, Destroyer Trucks, Destructo Trucks, and Fairman’s Skateshop.

In 2017, Margera was without any major sponsorships and has effectively retired from skateboarding professionally. He did return to skating casually, however, which resulted in a renewed partnership with Element Skateboards to celebrate the brand’s twenty-fifth anniversary by re-releasing a series of ten of his most memorable deck designs. Between September 6, 2017, and November 8, 2017, the boards were released on a weekly basis. Every deck is signed by Bam and limited to fifty units.

Bam Margera Documentary

Bam announced that he had been working on an autobiographical documentary film in January 2015, which he hoped to premiere in the near future. The first trailer for the film, titled I Need Time To Stay Useless, was released to YouTube and other media outlets on April 9, 2015. The film deals primarily with Bam’s life after the death of his close friend and co-star, Ryan Dunn, who died in a car crash in 2011.

According to Bam, the film has been three years in the making and will give viewers a glimpse into his childhood, career, and rise to fame, while focusing mainly on his recovery from the death of Dunn. Musician Brent Hinds of the band Mastodon will play Ryan in what has been described as “dramatic fantasy interludes” that ties the film together while also re-enacting what Margera considers his “darkest moments” after Ryan’s death.

Bam Margera Music

In 2005, Bam started a music label, Filthy Note Records. He has directed music videos for Clutch, Turbonegro, Viking Skull, Vains of Jenna, and several for CKY. Margera also directed seven music videos, “Buried Alive By Love”, “The Sacrament”, “And Love Said No”, and “Solitary Man”, for the Finnish band HIM, and three for The 69 Eyes, “Lost Boys”, “Dead Girls are Easy” and “Dead N Gone”. Bam also plays the keyboard in a novelty band called Gnarkill along with his friends Brandon DiCamillo, Jess Margera, Rich Vose, and Matt Cole.

Bam Margera Band

Bam’s band, Fuckface Unstoppable, was written about in 2013 on the Buddyhead website and the article questions the seriousness of the band (“a joke band(?)”). The band featured Bam, his brother, his girlfriend and Brandon Novak. Chad Ginsburg, from CKY, was the band’s guitarist before quitting. It released their debut album titled FFU on May 27, 2014, through Artery Records. A bonus track and a deluxe edition of the album featuring 5 live performances at Zombie Hut was released on August 28, 2015, through Casual Madness.
