Bam Margera‘s sit-down with Dr. Phil proved to be even more explosive than previously believed … and it was Bam’s mom who dished some tough love.
TMZ’s obtained a clip of the episode Dr. Phil shot during his one-on-one session with the “Jackass” star … and it’s pretty evident why Bam needed professional help. Bam lashed out at his wife, Nikki, and also his mom … who participated remotely.
Watch, Bam dropped the words no mother wants to hear after she told him he’s addicted to drama.
As we reported … Bam went public with his struggles a month ago, practically begging Dr. Phil for help and the doc obliged. After this emotional 3-hour session, Dr. Phil — who recorded without a studio audience — convinced Bam to head to rehab.
Since then, Bam’s had some hiccups on his road to recovery — he left rehab and ended up at a bar, before giving it another shot … at a different treatment center. His most recent attempt has gone smoother … aside from a trip to the hospital to treat swelling in his body.
We got him out late last week — during a lunch outing with his sponsor — and he looked great, telling us his treatment’s going well, and some special friends still have his back.
