Apparently, former Jackass star Bam Margera once tried to get into Eminem’s hotel room and give him a shovel talk about signing Yelawolf to Shady Records.
The reason for this escapade was that a former stuntman thought that Marshall was going to sign Yela only to immediately shelve him and hinder his progress. The former Shady artist mentioned this story in his recent Instagram post about Magera and their relationship:
…it’s not the first time Bam’s done something insane for me .. like rushing Eminem’s Hotel room in Germany cause he thought Shady signing me was a conspiracy to keep me down hahaha .. ( he’s banned permanently from that town for that btw ) point is we got a long history of stunts
To give more context to this bizarre situation we’ll have to go two weeks back when Yelaowlf posted a photo of a ring that Magera gave him, saying that it was Elvis Preslye’s ring that he got directly from his widow, Priscilla Presley. And that Magera was gifting it to Yela, who Bam considers the new king of rock and roll.
The Slumerican mastermind proudly showed it off on his social media with a caption:
Priscilla gave Bam one of Elvis’s robes and a ring of his as well the other night in L.A .. Bam gifted that ring to me .. it popped on my finger like it was made for me and I can’t lie it was a bit emotional .. Elvis was my first piece of vinyl .. it was also a gift when I was only 7 years old .. some things are just too amazing not to share with you all .. thank you Priscilla and thank you BAM I love you bro .. I’ll cherish this forever !! … TMZ hit BAM about it all .. I added that and a rad selfie of BAM and Priscilla he sent me in the scroll .. I love y’all !!
That story partly made sense because Margera had been friends with Priscilla’s son Navarone Garcia, and Bam recently posted selfies and videos with Priscilla. And yet, it was she who immediately issued a statement that she had never given Bam any items he claimed he was presented with.
It becomes more and more evident that Bam Margera fell off the wagon and is spiralling down again. The line between supporting a friend in relapse and enabling him might look blurry, and we can only hope that Bam’s friends will find the right answer to this challenge.
Meanwhile, Yelawolf decided to keep the ring the has a new story now. And another one, hidden in a caption:
All this talk about the Elvis ring gifted to me from Bam .. is it real , fake , stolen ? .. all that’s just making the ring more epic for me .. the one simple fact is my really good friend Bam gave me the ring as a sentiment and as a fan and that’s that .. and trust me it’s not the first time Bam’s done something insane for me .. like rushing Eminem’s Hotel room in Germany cause he thought Shady signing me was a conspiracy to keep me down hahaha .. ( he’s banned permanently from that town for that btw ) point is we got a long history of stunts and for the record, I think he’s a genius .. so look I understand why y’all are mad … But Me and ELVIS AINT !! The rings mine now it’s a wrap 👑
So, here is the story. The credibility of its source is questionable, however, the situation described looks convincingly bonkers for Margera’s character. Not sure that Marshall appreciated Bam’s invasion though. If it has ever happened.
