The “Jackass” alum is being treated in a San Diego, Calif., ICU, with doctors putting the 43-year-old on a ventilator, according to TMZ.

The former professional skateboarder has been in the hospital since earlier this week, the outlet reported Friday, noting that he is currently in stable condition.

The stunt performer has had a tumultuous year, attempting to escape rehab centers multiple times in June and September.

“It’s no secret that Bam has struggled with mental health and addiction,” the duo wrote at the time. “You’ve watched Bam grow up and supported him through his ups and downs.

“Although we love sharing our lives with you, some things need to be handled privately and treatment is one of them,” the statement continued. “Recovery is difficult and even more so under public scrutiny.”

Bam’s family members went on to dispute the “Free Bam” movement, clarifying that their family member was not “in a conservatorship.”


According to TMZ, doctors decided to put him on a ventilator in the ICU after he tested positive.

He is said to be in a stable condition and being looked after by health care professionals. 

But the Jackass alum has been in and out of rehab this year and has publicly battled with addiction.

He has also had a series of run-ins with law enforcement.

Also Bam reportedly went missing in June after allegedly escaping from his court-ordered rehab centre.

Just weeks later, he was reported missing by his rehab facility on June 13 after he fled the facility for the second time.

Sheriff’s deputies and a crisis intervention team found the troubled TV star days later at a hotel in Deerfield Beach, Florida, and took him back to a different rehab facility.

Also Sources close to the stunt performer told TMZ that he was “staying at the sober living facility after recently getting into an argument with his wife”.

TMZ reports that the former professional skateboarder, 43, was admitted to hospital in San Diego earlier this week and then tested positive for Covid-19 while at the facility.

The publication claims that since testing positive doctors decided to put him on a ventilator in the ICU.

In September Bam returned to his court-ordered rehab program with significant changes to his treatment plan to avoid another escape attempt.

But According to TMZ, a Judge restructured Bam’s treatment to no longer require him to reside at an in-patient facility, as he has been doing this past year.

Also In May, the skateboarder celebrated ‘one year of treatment’ for drug and alcohol abuse at a Boca Raton facility and planned on attending outpatient treatment classes for the next two months. 

The reality star claimed that he left the treatment center because he was worried that he was being kept from seeing his son and he was concerned he wouldn’t be able to raise him if he was in rehab.

He has reportedly been estranged from his wife Nikki Boyd, who hasn’t made attempts to contact him since he has been in rehab.
