Margera has had a tumultuous year that saw him celebrate one-year free of substance abuse in May followed by reports of him fleeing a Florida rehab facility a month later.

Margera was removed from the filming of Jackass Forever in 2021 due to substance abuse and received a restraining order from Jackass director Jeff Tremaine in 2021, as well.
