Jackass 4 director Jeffrey Tremaine was granted a restraining order against Jackass co-star Bam Margera after he told Los Angeles court he was afraid for his and his family’s safety.

Last week, Tremaine was granted a restraining order against Margera for three years; the order protects him, his wife and his children aged nine and 11.

Margera was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Tremaine, his family, his vehicle, home, job, children’s school and the children’s place of child care.

The restraining order came after Tremaine informed a judge on May 25 that Margera had threatened and harassed him “via numerous social media platforms in severity and frequency.”

In the May 25 filing, Tremaine explained that his friendship with Margera spanned over 20 years. Tremaine explained that he noticed his co-star struggling with “mental health” and “substance abuse issues.”

Margera spent time in rehab in recent years; Tremaine claimed that Margera did not attend a meeting to discuss his sobriety on February 4.

From February 2021 to May 23, 2021, Tremaine said Margera “attacked me on social media outlets, including comparing me to Harvey Weinstein and posting obscene drawings which refer to me personally.”

Tremaine showed “disturbing” messages and posts from Margera as proof, where he told Tremaine he’s “gonna kill you in one motherf–king punch.” Other messages from Margera suggested Tremaine should look after his children.
