Bam Margera, the former “Jackass” star, has requested a judge to dismiss his divorce from his estranged wife Nikki and set an earlier court hearing. Bam’s legal team filed new documents in court, making it clear that he doesn’t want to wait for two more months to see his son, Phoenix. The hearing is currently scheduled for July 11, but Bam wants the judge to step in and get the ball rolling as soon as possible.
Claiming That He Was Never Legally Married to Nikki in the First Place
In his emergency filing, Bam has also claimed that he was never legally married to Nikki in the first place. Nikki filed for legal separation in February, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for legal and physical custody over Phoenix, as well as spousal support.
Nikki Pushes Back
Nikki has filed legal documents, obtained by TMZ, claiming that there is no reason to rush everyone back in front of a judge. She says she is abiding by the custody orders, and Bam is still able to see their son. Nikki shades Bam in the documents, saying he can see their son as long as he is in California and not under the influence.
The Custody Battle
Nikki’s attorney, David Glass, tells TMZ that “Mr. Margera continues to claim to be the ‘injured’ party because he isn’t seeing Phoenix – even though he placed himself 3000 miles away after exposing the child to abuse and drug/alcohol abuse.” However, Bam has claimed that he has sworn off drinking for his son’s sake. The custody battle between the estranged couple is ongoing, and it remains to be seen what the court’s decision will be.
