Who is Missy Margera?
Melissa “Missy” Rothstein was born on 3 June 1980, in Springfield, Pennsylvania USA, and is a model as well as a photographer, but perhaps best known from her former marriage to professional skateboarder and stunt man Bam Margera – the two were featured together in the reality show “Bam’s Unholy Union”.
The Wealth of Missy Margera
How rich is Missy Margera? As of late-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, mostly earned through a successful career in modelling, but also from her numerous projects with Bam Margera. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Media Appearances
Missy attended West Chester East High School, and during her time there met future husband Bam Margera. They would initially become friends, as Bam would have other relationships including his engagement to single mother Jenn Rivell. After matriculating from high school, Missy enrolled into Penn State University, and completed a degree in Communication.
One of her first appearances was in the 2003 film entitled “Haggard: The Movie”, an independent comedy film based on reality television personality Ryan Dunn and his supposedly cheating girlfriend. The entire film was produced, directed, and financed by Bam Margera. Two years later, she made numerous cameo appearances during the fifth season of “Viva La Bam”, the reality television series which starred Bam Margera along with his family and friends. It is a spin-off of the show “Jackass”, and cast members of the series appeared in “Viva La Bam” as well. Each episode was typified by a specific challenge, theme, or mission, which usually involved the cast members performing pranks.
Relationship and Marriage
Bam’s seven year relationship to Jenn Rivell eventually ended in 2005, and a subsequent “Protection From Abuse” filing was made by him due to Rivell allegedly breaking into his house. Shortly afterwards, he started with Missy, and the two would become engaged a year later, with events leading up to their wedding becoming the subject of the MTV series entitled “Bam’s Unholy Union”. Over the course of the show, Missy was approached by the magazine “Playboy”, asking her to pose nude with Bam as a guest photographer; she reluctantly obliged, and the two were later featured in an issue of the magazine.
Their wedding was held at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia with around 350 family and friends in attendance, after which they honeymooned in Dubai. During an appearance in “LA Ink”, Bam admitted that he had to pay around $13,000 in damages after the wedding celebration, due to the antics of the “Jackass” crew. He mentioned that he had already anticipated it, as the crew was known for breaking things when they came together. The following year, Missy appeared in “Bam Margera Presents: Where the #$&% Is Santa?” which follows a similar theme to that of “Viva La Bam”.
Fallout and Divorce
In 2009, Missy contributed to the music video entitled “A#1 Roller Rager”, performed by CKY and during the same year made headlines after making a 911 call as her husband was taken to the hospital following a four-day alcohol binge. Their marriage started falling apart soon after the incident, and the following year Bam admitted to radio host Howard Stern that they were already living in separate cities, meeting once a week. He also revealed two other relationships, one in San Francisco and the other in West Chester, both of which Missy knew about.
In 2011, the two were spotted together after the death of Margera’s best friend Ryan Dunn, who he worked with in most of his projects, who was killed away after crashing his Porsche 911GT3 into a tree, and it burst into a flames; police reports stated that alcohol and speed were the contributing factors to the incident. The following year, the couple finalized their divorce.
For her personal life, it is known that Missy was married to Bam from 2007 to 2012, but they didn’t have children. Since their divorce, she has mainly stayed out of the spotlight, while Bam later married Nicole Boyd in Iceland and they have a child together. She previously had social media accounts on websites such as Facebook and Instagram, but since the end of her marriage, all of them have either been deleted or remained inactive. Many credit their rocky relationship due to Bam’s vices and the depression he suffered after the loss of his best friend. Recent reports, however, have stated that he has bounced back from his problems and is now enjoying a happy marriage.
