Jackass star Steve-O looks downcast as he jets out of Perth without his tour buddy Bam Margera after he said he is ‘bracing for the death’ of his best friend from drug and alcohol addiction
Jackass star Steve-O jetted out of Perth on Tuesday after the first show of his The Bucket List Australian tour.
The 48-year-old looked downcast as he walked through the airport without his stage buddy Bam Margera.
He dressed casually for the flight in a red T-shirt, black pants and a comfortable pair of white sneakers.
Steve-O kept a low profile with dark sunglasses and carried a skateboard in his hand as he arrived to the airport.
It comes after Steve-O recently said that he was bracing himself for Margera’s death from drug and alcohol issues.

Margera opened nine of the stuntman’s shows in the US before Steve-O accused his best friend of slipping back into old habits after posting what he deemed a ‘vile’ thing on social media.
Under the post, Steve-O said Margera was ‘dying’ but deleted it two minutes later.
It read: ‘Bam, last night you had your five year old son with you on stage at my show, and you were blessed with a chance to spend another day or two with him – then as soon as you left my show, you stayed up all night getting loaded enough to think it was a good idea to post more vile nonsense like this. I hope you understand how awful that is.
‘You say you want to have a good relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen.
‘I brought you on tour with the hopes that I could get you to see what’s possible for you if you can choose recovery.
‘I’ve tried everything I can, but I can’t force you to get honest and do the work of recovery.

‘I wish you could know how much I’ve hated feeling braced for news of your death, but you’re making it clear that I have no other choice. You’re dying brother, and it sucks that I can’t do anything to save you.’
Speaking on his Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast on February 25, he said he regretted posting that comment publicly.
‘The Bam situation…I posted this comment on Bam’s Instagram because I had him on tour with me for 10 days, we did nine shows with me and he was pretty great,’ he said.
‘The whole time he was telling me to reach out to Nicky, his wife, and see if I can spend the day with Phoenix [his son] because it’s in Santa Rosa California which was close to his wife and his son.
‘So the tour was a big journey to his son and on the last day he was reunited with his son and we all spent the day together, it was a great day and we did our last show that night.
‘After the show it was determined that bam doing good and Niki said he could spend another day or two with his son.

‘Come four, five, six, in the morning and he was posting hateful stuff.
‘When he’s posting hateful stuff it’s a terrible sign and he admitted it was because he was drunk.
‘Like dude c’mon man, I was so bummed, I was equally disappointed as I was surprised and that’s the nature of the disease.
‘Hs hateful post had been up for 22 hours so I wrote that comment saying you’re dying, you’re dying bro..
‘It sucks because I want to save you but I can’t, I can’t make you get better, I can’t do that work for you.’
