Was Jackass director Jeff Tremaine granted a temporary restraining order against Bam Margera?

JEFF Tremaine is the director of the upcoming movie Jackass 4, which is slated to release on October 22, 2021.

Tremaine directed the third Jackass installment, Jackass 3D, which was released in 2010.

Was Jackass director Jeff Tremaine granted a temporary restraining order against Bam Margera?

Tremaine has been granted a temporary restraining order against former cast member Bam Margera after alleging that he threatened him and his family, TMZ reports.

The director filed for a "civil harassment prevention" in Los Angeles Superior Court against Margera days after the former Jackass member shared a video bashing Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville over his firing from Jackass 4.

Per TMZ, Tremaine has been granted his temporary restraining order, requiring Margera to remain at least 100 yards away from Jeff, his wife and his kids.

Margera is also barred from contacting the director for any reason. 

Tremaine claims he's been getting harassed by Margera since February after he said the former cast member no-showed for a virtual meeting to discuss how he could help him with his mental health and sobriety struggles, the outlet reports.

Tremaine claims Margera's publicly attacked him, threatened violence, compared him to Harvey Weinstein, posted obscene drawings and made a comment that he and Knoxville can "pencil in there [sic] death certificate," according to court docs.

Tremaine also claims Margera sent him several direct threats against his kids, including one that read … "Look at your children and grab your pocketbook and write a check, if you are greedy, and cheap, look at your children again.

"If you don‘t sign the paper, look at you children. Sign your stupid f***ing contract before your (sic) not safe anywhere," TMZ reported, citing court docs.

Neither Tremaine nor Margera immediately responded to The Sun's request for comment.

What did Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O say about Bam Margera?

Fellow stuntman Steve-O responded to Margera's allegations sharing that both Knoxville and Tremaine previously saved his life. 

“The two people you’re saying wronged you (Knoxville and Tremaine) are the same two people who organized the intervention which saved my life.

"Everyone bent over backwards to get you in the movie, and all you had to do was not get loaded. You’ve continued to get loaded, it’s that simple.

"We all love you every bit as much as we all say we do, but nobody who really loves you can enable you or encourage you to stay sick," Steve-O added.

Steve-O's recent response comes after Margera blasted the cast of Jackass 4 after he was fired from the upcoming film while calling on fans to boycott the movie.

"If anybody cares about me don't go see their movie," Margera said according to Movieweb.

He also asks fans to send him money using Venmo so he can "blow them out of the water."

Margera said he was fired from the movie for being a "jackass" and implied he was mulling suicide, the outlet reported.

On Sunday, May 23, Margera took to Instagram with claims that his Jackass co-stars and friends have treated him poorly.

“My family—Jackass—has betrayed me, rejected me, abandoned me,” Margera said in the new clip.

“Not all of them. I love all of them and they love me back. But specifically Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville.

"So I feel like my family has fucking done everything horrible to me and made me jump on hoops and walk through eggshells—which is impossible—and strung me along like a fucking puppet to get the $5 million I usually get when I make a movie with them because Jeff Tremaine and CKY has started it," the former Jackass star added.

In a recent interview with GQ, Knoxville said the team wants "Bam to be happy and healthy."

“We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs,” he told the outlet.

"We tried to push that along. I think that's all I really want to say about it.”

When asked about Margera's recent firing comments, Knoxville said he doesn't want to get into a "public back-and-forth with Bam."

“I just want him to get better,” he added.
