Johnny Knoxville Reflects on Bam Margera's Absence from 'Jackass Forever' : 'Really Heartbreaking' Margera's estranged wife Nicole "Nikki" Boyd filed for divorce in February after separating in September 2021. In court documents obtained by PEOPLE at the time, she cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their separation. Boyd also requested to have legal and physical custody of the pair's 5-year-old son, Phoenix. Through the terms she is seeking, she wants Margera to have visitation rights as long as it's in the Los Angeles County region. Margera was noticeably absent from 2022's Jackass Forever after being fired. The firing led to a wrongful termination lawsuit that was ultimately dismissed by Margera in April 2022. "It's really heartbreaking," Knoxville told Variety in January 2022 of Margera's absence from all but one stunt in the film. "I love Bam. We all love Bam. He's our brother, you know? You just hope that he takes it upon himself to get the help that he needs because we all care about him a lot."
