In since-deleted Instagram videos, which were captured by TMZ, Margera said, "Who the f*ck cares if I'm drunk as hell or not anymore?" Margera claimed that he was cut from the movie and pondered if they would steal his ideas.  

Margera also said that if anyone cared about him, they would boycott Jackass 4 and donate money to him, so that he could finance his own rival film. 

"Jackass has put me through f*cking hell on f*cking wheels for the past year and a half," he said in the 10-minute rant. Margera also reportedly said that his wife, Nikki Boyd, found him looking up how to tie a noose but that he improved when he stopped taking the medication he was allegedly forced to take during past projects and moved to San Diego.

The next day, the 41-year-old said that he was suffering with manic bipolar disorder. "It’s going to be f*cking awesome, and it’s going to be in a way where everyone wins in the end. So I love everybody," he said in the new video about Jackass 4 and admitted he was going to see a "bipolar specialist."

However, as previously reported by OK!, Margera was still let go by the project, as he allegedly did not stick to the conditions given to him. 

Although the Jackass team wanted Margera on board, he was apparently given rules and restrictions he needed to follow to remain in production due to his history with substance use and erratic behavior, which meant he had to stay sober and see a psychologist while on set.

Sources said that early on while filming Jackass 4, Margera, who was monitored by a wellness coach, went AWOL and the team later found out that he checked himself into a rehab facility in Florida, Variety reported.

Margera has been in rehab several times and took the death of his friend and Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn in 2011 hard.

It is not yet known how much footage features Margera and if it will make its way into the final cut. The source said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the new film is still being assembled and that there may be more shooting to do.
