Bam Margera Gifts His Father Phil Rare Elvis Memorabilia – Updated
UPDATE (Feb. 16, 2023): Priscilla Presley has now refuted Bam Margera's story about the Elvis Presley items. Read our Feb. 13 report about them below.
Bam Margera's father, Viva La Bam's Phil Margera, is such a big Elvis fan that Bam reportedly used his connection to Priscilla Presley, former wife of the late rock icon, to gift his dad a personal item of Elvis'.
Earlier this month, Bam was reported to be hanging out with Priscilla, per TMZ, along with hip-hop artist Yelawolf and Navarone Garibaldi, Priscilla's 35-year-old son and the singer of the band Them Guns.
Allegedly, Priscilla was informed of Phil's fandom of Elvis — the performer called "The King of Rock 'n' Roll" — and gave Bam one of Elvis' robes and a ring. TMZ reported that Bam gave the robe to his dad. Photos Bam shared on Instagram seem to support the story.
Earlier this year, Bam, the Jackass star whose pattern of substance abuse reportedly got him fired from the latest Jackass movie, told Steve-O he "basically was pronounced dead" after being hospitalized with COVID-19 last year. Before that, Bam was in and out of rehab after completing a 12-month program.
