Bam Margera and Priscilla Presley share lunch — and a surprise connection
The new year hasn’t boded well for Bam Margera or Priscilla Presley, and it turns out the two share a surprising bond.
The 43-year-old “Jackass” star reportedly posted two pictures with Elvis Presley’s widow, 77, on his personal Instagram account @captaincreamstain on Tuesday. He captioned one of them “Lunch with Prescilla Presley” and misspelled her name.
In the second photo, Margera suggested that Presley was looking at a photo of his 5-year-old son, Phoenix Wolf Margera, although the picture didn’t show a photo or screen.
TMZ reports that while this pairing may seem coincidental, Margera is friends with Presley’s son Navarone Garibaldi Garcia, 35, who recently revealed he became addicted to heroin and fentanyl as a teenager.
The news comes weeks after Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie died on January 12 at the age of 54. Her cause of death was not disclosed. According to TMZ, Elvis and Priscilla’s only child was reportedly taking opioids and losing a large amount of weight two months before her death.
Margera continues to struggle with his own addiction issues. His “Jackass” co-star and friend Steve-O – who added Margera as an opening act on some of his “The Bucket List Tour” stops – recently wrote a public message to the skateboarder asking him to get help.
“I’ve exhausted all I can, but I can’t force you to be honest and do the work of recovery,” Steve-O reportedly commented on a since-deleted post on Margera’s Instagram. “I wish you could know how much I hated feeling prepared for the news of your death, but you make it clear I have no choice.
“You’re dying bro and it sucks there’s nothing I can do to save you,” the daredevil concluded.
As for Presley, she recently asked fans to “ignore the noise” surrounding the legal drama surrounding Lisa Marie’s trust.
“I loved Elvis very much, just as he loved me. Lisa is a result of our love. Anyone who thinks otherwise would be a mockery of family heritage and disrespectful of what Elvis left behind in his life,” Presley said in a statement to Page Six on Friday.
“There is one person who has bought into the family business and is trying to speak on behalf of our family. This person is not a representative of Elvis or our family,” she continued, asking the public to give her and her relatives “the time” they need to “work together and get this sorted out.”
