He's not only coming for his former Jackass co-star, he's also suing the co-creators of the MTV franchise, Spike Jonze and Jeff Tremaine, claiming he was pressured into signing an agreement that ultimately ended his career on the show.

According to the lawsuit obtained by Radar, Bam alleges that Knoxville, Jonze, and Tremaine forced him to sign his John Hancock on a "wellness agreement" during his stint in rehab in 2019, and he was unable to give the agreement to his attorney.

Bam claims the "wellness agreement" was hell for him.

The ex-Jackass star alleges he was required to take frequent drug and alcohol tests and claims he was forced prescription drugs that often made him drained and left him depressed.

Bam calls the treatment forced upon him by the Jackass team "inhumane" and "discriminatory." He also compares it to Britney Spears' conservatorship battle.

He was canned from Jackass Forever in February after allegedly not following the rules of the "wellness agreement." But Bam says that's not the case.

Bam alleges his firing came after he tested positive for Adderall, which he says he's had a prescription to take for the past decade.

This isn't the only legal battle amongst the Jackass crew.

Tremaine was granted a restraining order against Bam after the co-creator claimed he was "in great fear for [his] personal safety."

He claimed the Jackass star had been sending not only him but also his family death threats.

Earlier this year, Bam told his fans that Tremaine and Knoxville “betrayed me, abandoned me," and "rejected me."

Bam also encouraged everyone to boycott Jackass Forever, which is scheduled to be released later this year.
