A judge granted “Jackass” director Jeff Tremaine a permanent restraining order against the show’s former star, Bam Margera.
The restraining order requires Margera to remain at least 100 yards away from Tremaine and his family for the next three years, according to documents obtained and shared in a report published Wednesday by Fox News.
Tremaine included several screenshots of texts allegedly sent from Margera, including one in which he says he meant the threats against Tremaine’s children “from the bottom of my heart.” https://t.co/YcNdg1B53v

Tremaine claimed the harassment from Margera has been happening since February, TMZ reported. Margera publicly threatened violence at Tremaine and has sent private threats to his children, Tremaine claimed in documents obtained by the outlet.

Margera has been outspoken about his issues with the franchise he starred in.
He claimed that he was fired from “Jackass 4,” in an interview with GQ. He also said he was fired from the movie for breaking his contract and not attending rehab, which he characterized as “torture.”
“It hurts my heart because I’ve waited 10 years for this,” Margera told GQ.
Margera also shared a two-minute long rant to his Instagram.
“My family, ‘Jackass’ has betrayed me, abandoned me, rejected me,” Margera said. “Not all of them. I love all of them and they love me back. But it’s specifically Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville so I feel like my family has f*cking done everything horrible to me and made me jump through hoops and walk on eggshells, which is impossible, and strung me along like a f*cking puppet to get the $5 million that I usually get when I make a movie with them.”
