Steve-O has pleaded with Bam Margera to get help following his latest online outburst.
The former Jackass star has been opening for Steve-O during his recent tour, with the pair being seen on stage together.
And this week Bam took to Instagram, sharing an old photo of himself standing between Steve-O and Johnny Knoxville.
While he said he 'loved' Steve-O, he took a swipe at Knoxville, branding him a 'poser'.
The pair had a massive falling out over a year ago when Bam sued Knoxville and Paramount over wrongful termination from the Jackass Forever movie.
"One arm is a best friend who had my f**king back all along, another arm is a poser," the 43-year-old wrote. "A pro creation thief.
"If Jeff Tremaine was in this photo, he would be to greedy to fit. F**k jeff. Remember I tattooed that on me long ago jeff? It's because I knew who you were all along. @steveo much love and respect."
Clearly upset by the post, Steve-O stood up for his friend, and questioned why he was spreading such 'vile nonsense'.
The 48-year-old said that he wanted to help him get his life sorted out but that he couldn't.
"Bam, last night you had your five year old son with you on stage at my show, and you were blessed with the chance to spend another day or two with him- then as soon as you left my show, you stayed up all night getting loaded enough to think it was a good idea to post more vile nonsense like this," he wrote in a since deleted comment.
"I hope you understand how awful that is. You say you want to have a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen."
Steve-O said it 'sucks' that he couldn't do anything to help him, and that that he was 'dying.
"I brought you on tour with me in hopes that I could get you to see what's possible for you if you choose recovery," he added.
"I've tried everything I can, but I can't force you to get honest and do the work of recovery. I wish you could know how much I've hated feeling braced for news of your death, but you're making it clear that I have no other choice.
"You're dying, brother, and it sucks that I can't do anything to save you.
Last year, Knoxville came out and said he hoped Bam would get the help he needs, telling Variety that he hadn't spoken to his former co-star in over a year.
"It boils down to: I love Bam," Knoxville said. "I know that a lot has happened.
"I just want him to get well for himself and his family. I love the guy, and I want him to get well and stay well."
