The director of “Jackass” was granted a three-year restraining order against franchise star Bam Margera.
Jeff Tremaine testified on Tuesday in front of a Los Angeles judge, who then issued the order with an expiration date of June 15, 2024, per court documents obtained by Page Six on Wednesday.
Tremaine, 54, was previously granted a civil harassment restraining order against Margera, 41, after he told a court that the actor had allegedly sent him death threats for months beginning in February.
The filmmaker claimed that Margera’s disturbing messages included, “I’m gonna kill you in one mother f—king punch” and “Keep it up fat boy and I will continue.”
Tremaine had sent screenshots of the text messages that he allegedly received to the court, with another one reading, “Look at your children and grab your pocket book and write a check, if you are greedy, and cheap, look at your children again. If you don‘t sign the paper, look at your children. Sign your stupid f—king contract before your [sic] not safe anywhere.”
The director further claimed that Margera had texted an unnamed colleague of his with a photo of an alleged contract that was also posted on social media and told the colleague that he has “powers as a wizard” and “can create and strike lightning” — while speaking at times using numbers instead of English.
Margera has suffered from substance abuse and alcohol-related issues since he rose to fame on MTV’s “Jackass” show in the early 2000s.
The stuntman most recently claimed that the producers of “Jackass 4” had forced him to go to a drug rehab facility in order to participate in the film, but the treatment he received left him with suicidal thoughts.
“It was the definition of f–king torture,” he said in April. “They tortured me!”
