Bam and Nicole
Less than a year after his divorce from Missy Rothstein in 2012, Bam Margera was married again, this time to Nicole Boyd. They exchanged vows very publicly at a concert in Reykjavik, where he performed with his band. Nicole Boyd describes herself on Twitter as a model, photographer and graphic artist.
Bam and Missy
After a failed engagement to Jenn Rivell in 2005, Bam Margera eventually married his childhood friend Melissa “Missy” Rothstein in 2007. They had been engaged since 2006 and the events leading up to their marriage were chronicled in the MTV series Bam’s Unholy Union.
There are pictures of the couple where they appear to be quite happy, but it does not appear to have been a successful relationship for very long; an unholy union indeed. In 2009 Bam made news when he was hospitalized after a four-day drinking binge that left him severely dehydrated. The reason for his excessive drinking? He said he might be getting a divorce and that the booze would help.
Apparently the couple tried marriage counselling following this incident, but ultimately failed. In various interviews Bam has spoken about his failed marriage, hinting at struggles with depression and mood swings.
In 2010 Bam also mentioned in a Howard Stern interview that he and Missy were living in separate cities and that she knew about girlfriends he had in San Francisco and West Chester. If they had not been separated before that statement, they certainly were after.
Neither of them ever made an official statement about the reasons for their divorce, so it’s all guess work. Bam only married Missy after his first engagement to another woman failed; perhaps they would have been better off as friends.
Given that Bam apparently had two girlfriends, cheating may well be an explanation. Bam led a busy life and Missy was sitting at home by herself, giving him time to spend with many other people, among them likely women and Bam Margera certainly gives off a bit of a bad boy vibe.
In November 2012 their divorce was finalized, but no details are available. Bam Margera having been a brand long before the marriage, there may very well have been a pre-nup. But Missy Rothstein is also a relative nobody, which could mean that she may have received some kind of alimony.
Missy certainly seemed very happy to be divorced, tweeting about being free and celebrating with a divorce party. And Bam must have been just about ready as well, though he did not publicly comment on it.
Bam and Jenn
The end of Bam and Jenn Revell’s relationship before his marriage to Missy was an ugly one, with a “Protection From Abuse” order against Rivell who allegedly broke into his house. Bam jokingly (or not) revealed in an interview to Huck Magazine how he was apprehensive about ending things with Jenn fearing a violent reaction. However, Bam’s coping strategy of cheating on her with multiple women seems questionable to say the least.
Perhaps Bam Margera is not someone who likes to be alone for very long. His first engagement ended, but shortly thereafter he married another woman. And less than a year after one divorce, he marries yet again. Not only that, he also seems to prefer marriage over alternative forms of long-term relationships.
Let’s hope this time it will last longer and be a happier experience for him than the last time.
