Bam Magera has been making headlines in recent weeks. First, there was the four-day manhunt in April after Magera reportedly assaulted his brother at the family home. After turning himself in, Magera vehemently denied all the allegations made against him. More recently, Magera has been in a vicious custody battle for his son, Phoenix. Phoenix, who Magera said he was getting sober for in April, is currently under the full custody of Magrea’s ex-wife.
Last week, Magera was placed on a psychiatric hold after flying to LA and claiming that he was going to smoke crack until he died unless he saw his son. The detention came as a result of appeals from Magera’s family and the LAPD tracking his cell phone. After making contact with Magera at a taco restaurant, the former Jackass star was placed on a 5150 hold. It is unknown how long the hold will last or who Magera will be discharged to.
Lamar Odom Visits Magrea
Back in April, when Magera turned himself into the police, former NBA star Lamar Odom made it very clear that Magera would have a place at one of his rehab centers if he wanted it. Odom owns two rehabilitation and wellness centers in Southern California. He owns a third in Kansas. Furthermore, it seems that Odom is very eager to be part of Magera’s healing process.
According to TMZ, Odom visited Magera in the hospital and once again offered him a place at one of his centers. This would come after the hold on Magera is lifted. According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Magera appeared received. The pair reportedly shared a hug in the hospital. Magera did initially accept Odom’s offer in April. However, he never went through with the treatment. It remains to be seen if things will be different this time around. This is a developing story and we’ll have any updates here at HotNewhipHop.
