Early life

Missy Rothstein

Missy Rothstein was born in Springfield, Pennsylvania, on June 3, 1980. Marian Rothstein raised her as a single mother. 

Missy is a Gemini. Geminis are very creative, social, and optimistic about their lives. In addition, they are highly ambitious, enthusiastic, and have strong opinions with functional and analytical thinking capacity. 

Missy Rothstein studied at West Chester East High School, where she met her ex-husband, Bam Margera. However, they both were just good friends then. Missy went on to join Penn State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication.

As a child, Missy had a passion for modeling. Her admiration for models during catwalks stems from their confidence. Thus, Missy chose a modeling career despite her degree.

While Missy tattooed 313 because it was the area code where they had purchased the wedding ring, Bam tattooed Dr. J inside his mouth.

According to the New York Times, the couple had gotten their matching tattoos on their lips on the day they had signed their marriage license in X-Treme Ink Tattoo Parlor near their hometown in West Chester. 

Bam’s ex-wife has matching tattoos.

She has dark brown hair and a beautiful pair of dark brown eyes. And with being a model, she possesses a slim and hourglass figure.


Marriage and Divorce with Bam Margera

Missy Rothstein met Bam during their school days. Although they studied in the same school, they were not in a relationship until they met again in the mid-2000s.

Margera spontaneously proposed to Missy in the Cartier store in 2006. In an interview, Margera stated that he thought it was a good sign when his diamond ring perfectly fit her finger. 

People called Missy Rothstein a golddigger because of her relationship with Bam.

On February 3, 2007, they married each other at the Loews Hotel in downtown Philadelphia. Their wedding aired on ‘Bam Unholy Union’ on MTV.

After their wedding in 2007, the couple enjoyed their married life for three years. In 2010, their relationship began to deteriorate. A major reason for the couple’s split was Bam’s late-night partying habits, which made Missy’s life difficult. 

According to some sources, Bam used to have 40-50 guests in the house late at night. Nevertheless, Missy disliked it. 

Rather than attending parties, she slept in her room. The next day, Missy would have to rearrange her house before going to work.

This was causing a rift between the couple as Missy Rothstein was experiencing a lot of stress. She even called 911 once to help her husband as he had been drinking for four days straight.

As a result of constant fights, Bam suggested she move to another city and house. 

Likewise, he told Howard Stern that Bam met Rothstein only once a week and spoke about his girlfriends in San Francisco and West Chester. 

The couple was last spotted together during a funeral held for their close friend and Bam’s co-star Ryan Dunn.

Missy Rothstein and Bam Margera ended their five-year marriage in 2012.

In 2007, Bam, in an interview with Howard Stern, said that someone had leaked Missy’s private photos on the internet while interviewing Howard Stern.

He stated that the spread was only supposed to feature Missy’s topless shoots, but someone leaked Rothstein’s nude pictures.

Additionally, Playboy offered Bam a role, which involved taking Missy’s photographs instead of using their photographer.

The crew also documented the behind-the-scenes of the photoshoot in the couple’s series. The photo shoot was a spontaneous one. The playboy representative barged into the mansion randomly.

The ‘behind scene’ footage in the series also includes the crews struggling to make the photoshoot successful as the couple was yelling at each other on multiple occasions.
