A restraining order has been filed against Bam Margera by producer Jackass Jeff Tremaine.
Tremaine, 54, accused Margera, 41, of harassment in a restraining order filed in Los Angeles County court Tuesday, according to The Blast.
It comes three months after Margera was reportedly fired from Jackass 4 due to her failure to meet producer terms regarding her addiction issues.

In the documents, Tremaine asked a judge to order Margera to stay away from him amid accusations the star harassed him.
Exactly what Margera would have done that led to the filing is not known.
Tremaine started the Jackass franchise with Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze, and has produced and directed the films and episodes since.
This included the upcoming film Jackass 4, from which Margera was fired due to her inability to meet certain conditions put in place regarding her sobriety.
It comes three months after Margera was reportedly fired from Jackass 4 because he couldn’t meet the terms the producers said regarding his addiction issues.
Insiders revealed that conditions included taking her medication, blowing on a breathalyzer, pledging to stay sober, seeing a psychologist and doing routine drug tests during the project, according to TMZ.
It is not known which of the conditions Bam allegedly failed to meet, leading producers to inform him that he was no longer part of the Jackass 4 project.
Several Jackass stars have publicly discussed their addiction issues and, in a new interview with GQ, Knoxville has said he hopes Margera will get “the help he needs.”
“It’s tough when your friends are…” Knoxville told the magazine, pausing before reflecting on the death of his friend Ryan Dunn, who died at 34 in a drunk driving incident.

It was heartbreaking to lose Ryan. And it was difficult when Steve-O was derailed. But he’s completely, completely changed his life and done just – I mean, he’s doing great. He’s a different, different man.
“I think each of us was responsible for our own actions,” he said. “And when someone is having a hard time, everyone tries to help them. And at the end of the day, that person must be in need of help. Sometimes not. Again.’
When asked if his last comment was about anyone in particular, Knoxville referred to Margera, “We want Bam to be happy and healthy and to get the help he needs. We have tried to move this forward. I think that’s all I really want to say about it.
Tremaine created the Jackass franchise with Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze, and has produced and directed the films and episodes since.
After the interview, Bam called the demands made by the producers “torture” and discussed the drama that led to his dismissal from Jackass 4 in an interview with TMZ.
“I don’t want to go into public round trips with Bam,” Knoxville told GQ when asked later about Bam’s remarks. “I just want him to get better.
Bam claims he was forced to attend a 90-day rehab center and stay away from alcohol and Adderall as part of the contract he signed, according to The Blast.
However, he eventually took 18 other prescription drugs which he said caused him to have “suicidal thoughts”.

On Monday, Margera revealed he was in Florida seeking treatment from a woman who had helped Steve Tyler.
Over the years, the Viva La Bam star has struggled with alcoholism. He was hospitalized in 2009 after several days of heavy drinking and entered rehab for the first time later that year, staying only a few days.
His struggle with drug addiction worsened after the death of his friend Ryan Dunn in 2011.
Over the years, Bam has unsuccessfully registered at various institutions to treat his alcoholism, often quitting before the end of the programs.
The star experienced a brief seven-month sobriety spell in 2018 after getting a DUI, but relapsed after being robbed at gunpoint later that year.
In 2019, he was kicked off a flight to the southwest after drunkenly berating airline staff.
Weeks later, he was arrested in Los Angeles and charged with trespassing for drunk refusing to leave a hotel after learning there were no rooms available.
