Bam Magera was recently released from a 5150 psychiatric hold at an LA hospital. Furthermore, he was discharged into the care of former NBA star Lamar Odom. Magera was detained after flying to Los Angeles and threatening to smoke crack until he died unless he saw his son. According to Magera’s team, the former Jackass star has not been in contact with his son Phoenix for more than two months. This has been a result of Magera’s battle with substance abuse and his various headline-grabbing exploits. In April, Magera vowed that he was getting sober for the sake of his son.
While Magra is reportedly detoxing at one of Odom’s facilities ahead of a transfer to another facility for long-term rehabilitation, he is still making headlines. It is clear that Magrea still wants to see his son. Furthermore, he is reportedly beginning to get aggressive about the issue with his ex-wife, Nikki.
Magrea Accused Of Sending Abusive Texts
According to David Glass, the attorney for Magera’s ex-wife Nikki Boyd, Magera has been sending Boyd increasingly abusive texts since leaving the hospital. “Bam has started texting since his release from the 5150 hold, but the content quickly turned abusive, calling Nikki awful names, saying she is the cause of all his problems, even saying she’s a ‘gold digger’,” Glass told TMZ. The ‘gold digger’ claim stems from reports that Nikki is seeking $15,377 in child support and $50K in attorney’s fees.
Magera’s attorney, Peter Thompson, hit back at the claims by trying to place some of the blame on Boyd. “Bam continues to support her and Phoenix even though she won’t even allow a phone call or FaceTime with Phoenix. He just wants to see his son and continues to come up against a brick wall on that. Contact would go a long way in getting this resolved.” It’s unclear how much phone usage Odom’s facilities allow and whether these reports will affect Magera’s stay.
