Bam Margera and his estranged wife, Nikki Boyd, are currently in a legal battle over their impending divorce and custody of their son, Phoenix. Margera has filed a motion asking the judge to expedite the divorce proceedings and give him access to his son, while Boyd is pushing back against the request.
Margera rose to fame as part of the “Jackass” crew, and he has since become a successful skateboarder and television personality. He married Boyd in 2013, and the couple welcomed their son, Phoenix, in December of the same year.
However, their marriage has been rocky in recent years, with Boyd filing for legal separation in February of 2023. She cited irreconcilable differences and requested legal and physical custody of their son, as well as spousal support.
Margera is now claiming in court that he was never legally married to Boyd, and he wants the divorce to be finalized as soon as possible so that he can move forward with his life. He also stated that Boyd has been keeping Phoenix away from him, and he wants the judge to intervene.
In response to Margera’s motion, Boyd’s lawyer, David Glass, stated that Margera is the one who has been causing problems. Glass accused Margera of exposing Phoenix to drug and alcohol abuse, and he claimed that Margera had placed himself 3000 miles away from his son.
Boyd herself claimed in legal documents that there is no reason for the divorce proceedings to be expedited, as she has been abiding by the custody orders and allowing Margera to spend time with Phoenix.
The ongoing legal battle between Margera and Boyd has attracted much attention from the media, with tabloids like TMZ covering the story extensively. The website has also reported on Margera’s struggles with substance abuse and his attempts to get sober for the sake of his family.
Despite their differences, Margera and Boyd both seem to have their son’s best interests at heart. It remains to be seen how the court will rule on their dispute, but hopefully, they can come to an agreement that allows Phoenix to have a positive relationship with both of his parents.
