Jackass star Bam Margera had to have his rings cuts from his fingers after injuring himself in a "fist fight" in Europe. The performer has posted a video online showing him visiting a blacksmith in Estonia after allegedly becoming involved in a punch-up with a taxi driver which left his fingers swollen and his rings cutting into his flesh.
Speaking into the camera before the removal, Margera said, "I got into a fist fight with a taxi driver in (Estonia) and now, by punching them, it's smushed (sic) the ring into my finger, cutting all of it, almost to the bone. And this (other) one is so f**king puffy and swollen because it's smushed together... so it won't budge. So now we're at a blacksmith to cut these f**kers off and I hope he doesn't cut my fingers off."
The video then shows Margera putting his fingers in a clamp, while a blacksmith uses a bolt cutter to remove the rings.
After having the jewellery cut off, Margera took a picture of his bloodied fingers and posted it on his Twitter.com page.
Jackass star Bam Margera has axed his upcoming U.S. tour after suffering health issues relating to a hernia. The TV prankster had to cancel a show in Finland recently due to an unspecified injury and now he has called off a series of American dates as well.
A message posted on Margera's Facebook.com page reveals he has been suffering from a hernia, and he aggravated the condition by going "waterfall jumping" during a break from his European tour in Iceland.
The note reads, "A thousand apologies to everyone affected by the USA tour cancellation, we are truly gutted about it. A few months ago Bam got injured while kayaking off a 100 foot waterfall in Oregon and more recently (proving we are experts in the bad decision dept.) we went waterfall jumping during a day off in iceland (sic) and of course Bam re-damaged the same hernia he got in Oregon.
"If anyone has ever had a hernia before you would know that it hurts like f**k to sing. I also realise how ridiculous and over the top these injuries are, but I mean jesus christ (sic) - it's Bam we are talking about here."
Jackass star Bam Margera is to wed his girlfriend Nicole Boyd next month (Sep13). The TV prankster, real name Brandon Cole Margera, has revealed he and Boyd will exchange vows in Iceland on his birthday (28Sep13).
In a Twitter post on Friday (02Aug13) he writes, "Getting married to @nicoleboyd124 on my birthday in Iceland."
This will be the professional skateboarder and stuntman's second marriage - he divorced his first wife Missy Rothstein last year (12).
It is unclear why Margera and Boyd chose to wed in Iceland, especially after the Jackass star was arrested there last month (Jul13) and charged with wrecking a rental car.
The TV daredevil hired a vehicle from a branch of Hertz during a visit to the country last year (12), but staff were unhappy with the state of the Toyota Land Cruiser when he returned it.
He left the country before paying for the damage, and during a return trip he was arrested on arrival at Keflavik International Airport.
Margera has since settled the unpaid bill.
He has also announced he will be holding a charity bike race to honour late pal Ryan Dunn in the run-up to his nuptials, on 16-20 September (13).
Dunn, who was also a Jackass regular, lost his life in a 2011 car crash.
Bam Margera's week has gone from bad to worse after he was forced to cancel a show in Finland due to injury just days after his arrest in Iceland. The Jackass star was detained upon arrival in Iceland on Wednesday (24Jul13) over an outstanding bill for a rental car he damaged during a previous visit in 2012.
After settling the bill, he was released to continue his European tour, which has now ground to a halt due to injury.
Margera has cancelled his Friday night (26Jul13) appearance at the Klubi venue in Tampere, Finland.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Due to injury, the show... has been cancelled. Hope you understand."
No more details were available as WENN went to press.
The star's tour is due to continue with a second date in Finland on Saturday (27Jul13) before he heads to Sweden. He will return to Finland next month (Aug13).

Actor Benjamin Bratt is steering clear of the fireworks this Independence Day (04Jul13) after almost blowing his hand off as a kid. The Miss Congeniality star traditionally holds a summer (13) barbecue for his friends and family on the U.S. holiday, but he makes sure to hire experts to take charge of the light display at the end of the night after a scarily close call during his childhood.
During a taped appearance on U.S. morning show Live with Kelly and Michael, he explained, "I leave the fireworks to the professionals.
"When I was a kid I nearly blew my hand off... Living in the city, my brother and I used to go through the gutter and look for the old duds. We'd peel the paper back and pull out the little bit of wick that was left, light it and throw it on the ground and watch it go off. I waited 30 seconds, which I thought was ample time, (but) apparently not enough because I picked it up, started unwrapping it, bam!
"I didn't even look, it felt like it blew off three fingers. There were blisters, piercing ear trauma, but I learned my lesson."
The Pixies are staging a musical comeback following the departure of longtime bassist/singer Kim Deal earlier this month (Jun13). News of Deal's departure was announced on 14 June (13), and now the musicians have confirmed they are bouncing back by releasing a song, their first new music since 2004's one-off track Bam Thwok, which was written and sung by Deal.
Fans can download the new song, titled Bagboy, from the band's official website.
A message posted on the Pixies' Twitter.com page, reads, "It's time!!! We have something new we'd like you to hear. Cover your breath, polish your teeth... Bagboy..."
It is not yet known whether the band will follow the track with a new album. The Pixies' last full studio record was 1991's Trompe le Monde.
The Social Network star Armie Hammer has been secretly nursing a broken hand after a drunken night out in Russia. The actor and his wife Elizabeth Chambers recently visited Moscow to promote his new movie The Lone Ranger and they were welcomed with a traditional Russian meal.
Hammer's hosts made sure to keep the vodka flowing throughout the special dinner and the star happily indulged - but the 26 year old can't remember what happened afterwards.
He woke up the following morning to find himself covered in blood - and had to grovel to his wife to fill him in on his drunken actions.
Hammer explains, "All I know is I woke up the next morning in our hotel room and the room was covered with blood. And I was just like, 'What did I do?' I couldn't find my wife and I was like, 'Elizabeth, Elizabeth! What's going on?!' I find my wife in the other room, just glaring at me and I go, 'What happened?' and she goes, 'You don't know what happened? You should know what happened'... I look down at my hand and it looked like someone had cut a baseball in half and put it under my hand and it was just dried blood all over.
"Turns out, I was having such a good time that I decided to run down the hallways of our hotel screaming about how much fun Moscow is and then bam! Smacked my hand on a big steel column and broke my hand - ended up in the hospital at Moscow..."
However, the medical emergency hasn't soured Hammer's memories of Moscow: "It is one of the most fun places... it's the best."
Asgard. The final frontier.
When we got word that a new Thor: The Dark World trailer would be hitting the waves, we laced our anticipation with all the fandom we've built up seeing Chris Hemsworth embody the Marvel demigod in Thor and The Avengers. Lo and behold, the new video does indeed call upon a fantastical blockbuster of recent years, but it's neither of these... the sequel seems, instead, to be strikingly similar to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek franchise.
Check out the trailer and see what we mean:
Not convinced? Take a closer look.
Check out the shot at the 25-second mark, which hearkens back to the interior of the Enterprise.
And how about just a few seconds later — the demonic pillars reigning down upon London recall both Star Trek's Los Angeles, victimized by a monstrous drill, and the terrorized England capital in the trailers for Star Trek into Darkness.
Then there's the mechanical beast at the 1-minute mark: none too far a leap from your Vulcan Bird of Prey, eh?
Finally, 1:20. That guy, the one with the pointy ears and the messed up face, just tell me he's not straight out of the mind of Gene Roddenberry. One part Vulcan, one part Borg, a little bit of Klingon in there. Bam. You've got yourself Star Trek into Dark World.
Catch Thor: The Dark World in theaters Nov. 8... and Star Trek into Darkness on May 17.
