Bam Margera battling pneumonia, reportedly hospitalized

Bam Margera was reportedly hospitalized with pneumonia, which was complicated by a positive COVID-19 test.

Bam was admitted to the hospital in San Diego earlier this week. While in the hospital, he tested positive for Covid.

According to sources, doctors decided to put him on a ventilator after that. He is being treated in the intensive care unit, but his condition is stable.

The stunt performer had a turbulent year, making multiple attempts to sneak out of treatment facilities between June and September.

After being given a temporary healthcare guardian, Bam’s mom, April Margera, and brother, Jess Margera, addressed the situation in an Instagram post in August.

“It’s no secret that Bam has struggled with mental health and addiction,” the duo wrote at the time. “You’ve watched Bam grow up and supported him through his ups and downs.

“Although we love sharing our lives with you, some things need to be handled privately and treatment is one of them,” the statement continued. “Recovery is difficult and even more so under public scrutiny.”

The “Free Bam” movement was refuted by Bam’s family members, who made it clear that their relative was not “in a conservatorship.”

“We ask for you to support Bam in his recovery, to stay on track, and wish him well in his sobriety,” the social media upload added.

The former reality star has long struggled with substance abuse problems.

In October, Steve-O assured Jim Norton that he would “never give up” on his former co-star.

He said: “I’ve been physically present at almost every stop on his years-long tour of rehabs and psych wards.”

Bam is married to Nicole Boyd. He previously disclosed to his Instagram followers that he had been diagnosed with manic-bipolar disorder.

Phoenix was born three months after the couple tied the knot in June 2017. In September 2021, the model, 38, filed paperwork asking for sole custody of the 4-year-old.
