Here is everything you need to know.
Nikki Boyd claims that Bam Margera was not sober while visiting their son
Nikki Boyd’s attorney David Glass talked to TMZ about his client’s recent filing.
He said that Boyd filed for divorce from Bam Margera after he visited their 5-year-old, Phoenix, while she was present.
Moreover, Boyd believes that Margera was not sober during his visit and was allegedly acting inappropriately.
The Jackass star on the other hand claims that he was not drunk during the visit.
In addition, Glass mentioned that this visit was the last straw for Boyd. Despite years of trying to help Margera, Boyd now needs to protect herself and their son.
Glass talked about the divorce during an interview with PEOPLE.
He said, ‘Nikki Margera felt compelled to file for legal separation from her husband, Bam Margera, due to his continuing drug and alcohol abuse, erratic behavior, and due to his failure to provide support for her and their son.’
Consequently, he added, ‘Nikki has put everything she has into trying to get Bam to stay sober and to trying to preserve her family.’
Meanwhile, it was reported on Wednesday that Boyd has filed for legal separation from Margera.
Additionally, she is citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce and has listed 14th September 2021 as their separation date.
She seeking both legal and physical custody of their son but is allowing Margera to have visitation rights on the condition they happen in Los Angeles County.
Boyd is also requesting to obtain spousal support and wants Margera to pay the expenses.
