Bam MargeraAn emotional split with his estranged wife resulted in him having to run away from rehab – but since he returned, he hasn’t heard a peep from her or her children. them…so he hired a lawyer.
Sources close to the ‘Jackass’ star tell TMZ… Bam’s estranged wife, Nikki Boyddid not attempt to speak to him directly or return his phone calls, only spoke to his team about child support and custody regarding their son, Wolf Phoenix.
We are told Bam has now hired a family lawyer to help him visit his son. Our source said that in the past, Bam had tried to schedule the visit on his own.
Bam’s new family law attorney will work to come up with a custody agreement with Nikki’s attorney, David Glassso that Bam could see their son.
Nikki and Phoenix were back in California while Bam was at a treatment center in Florida due to his court-ordered rehabilitation – and the distance didn’t seem to help their communication.
Remember, Nikki filed the documents in Los Angeles seek full guardianship of Phoenix, and only wanted Bam for a supervised visit.
Our sources say that Bam’s recent disappearance from rehab was due to his inability to see his child, coupled with his beliefs. Nikki has switched to. However, Nikki claimed when he went missing for the 2nd time that she was nothing but Bam’s support – even moved from California to FL to be closer to him… and she thinks she’s done unjustly blamed for his departure.
We said that Bam was very upset and no longer wanted to try to make things right with Nikki. His sole focus was on seeing his son and he was worried he would never see him again.
Nikki’s attorney told us she was waiting for word from Bam’s new treatment facility to initiate contact – as standard procedure usually is. Glass said that he is also waiting to hear from Bam’s attorney to arrange a time for Bam to meet Phoenix.
