Jackass director Jeff Tremaine has been granted a temporary restraining order against the film's former star, Bam Margera, TMZ reported Wednesday, after the former MTV star allegedly sent a series of disturbing messages following his firing from Jackass 4. Tremaine alleges Margera sent a series of messages threatening him and his children after being let go from the film for failing to adhere to the terms of his contract in regards to substance abuse and mental health treatment.
Margera is required to stay 100 yards away from Tremaine, his wife and kids and is not permitted to contact the director. Tremaine claimed in court documents that he has been harassed by Margera since February after the skateboarder didn't show up to a meeting addressing his mental health and sobriety issues. Tremaine accused Margera of publicly attacking him, threatening violence, comparing him to Harvey Weinstein, posting obscene drawings about him and commenting that he and Johnny Knoxville should "pencil in there [sic] death certificate."
In addition, Tremaine claimed Margera made several direct threats against his kids, including a message attempting to coerce him into signing a contract he drew up himself: "Look at your children and grab your pocket book and write a check, if you are greedy, and cheap, look at your children again," the message read. "If you don‘t sign the paper, look at you children. Sign your stupid f—ing contract before your (sic) not safe anywhere."
