'Jackass' Director Jeff Tremaine Files Restraining Order Against Bam Margera Following His Rant

Johnny Knoxville, meanwhile, says he wants Bam to be 'happy and healthy and get the help he needs' despite being publicly called out by the former professional skateboarder.

AceShowbiz - "Jackass" director has fired back at Bam Margera in the wake of the latter's rant. Just one day after the former professional skateboarder slammed him on social media, Jeff Tremaine reportedly filed a temporary restraining order against him.

Jeff filed the legal documents in Los Angeles Superior Court. According to the documents obtained by The Blast, he is requesting a judge to order the stunt performer to stay away as he claimed to be a victim of "harassment" by the latter.

The report came just one day after Bam lashed out at Jeff and Johnny Knoxville. In an Instagram video shared on Sunday, May 23, the 41-year-old argued, "So, my family, 'Jackass', has betrayed me, abandoned me, rejected me. Not all of them, I love all of them and they love me back, but specifically, Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville."

"So, I feel like my family has f**king done everything horrible to me, and made me jump through hoops and walk on eggshells, which is impossible," he continued. "And strung me along like a f**king puppet to get the $5 million I usually get when making a movie with them."

While Jeff and Johnny did not directly react to the post, fellow daredevil Steve-O defended the two. "Bam- the two people you're saying wronged you (Knoxville and Tremaine) are the same two people who organized the intervention which saved my life. Everyone bent over backwards to get you in the movie, and all you had to do was not get loaded. You've continued to get loaded, it's that simple," he commented.

Johnny, meanwhile, divulged that he has nothing but love for Bam. "We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs," he said in an interview with GQ. "We tried to push that along. I think that's all I really want to say about it."

Months before blasting Jeff and Johnny, Bam urged his fans to boycott "Jackass 4" as he was fired from the film. On the reason why, the "Viva La Bam" star reportedly broke his contract by not getting his addiction issues in check during production of the project.

Bam was ordered to submit routine drug testing, take breathalyzer tests, take his medication and see a psychologist. He told TMZ that those conditions made him feel "tortured." When speaking to GQ, he claimed that his firing "broke [his] heart because [he's] waited 10 years for this."

In response to Bam's statement, Johnny stated, "I don't want to get into public back-and-forth with Bam." He then added, "I just want him to get better."
