(MAINNEWS) – Bam Margera and Priscilla Presley grabbed lunch together amid difficult times in both of their lives — but the pairing isn’t as bizarre as you might think.
The troubled “Jackass” star, who is friends with Presley’s son Navarone Garcia, posted two snaps from the outing to his Instagram Tuesday.
“Lunch with prescilla [sic] Presley,” he captioned the first selfie, while the second flick showed the 77-year-old looking at photos of Margera’s 5-year-old son, Phoenix.
The casual lunch date — which seemingly took place at someone’s house — comes amid a very tumultuous time for both Margera and Presley.
Priscilla and Elvis Presley’s only daughter, Lisa Marie, passed away last month and the matriarch has been engulfed in a legal war ever since.
After Lisa Marie was laid to rest next to her famous father and late son, Priscilla challenged a “purported 2016 amendment” to her daughter’s will that ousted her as a trustee.
The businesswoman asked a judge to determine the validity of the amendment — which named Lisa Marie’s eldest daughter, Riley Keough, the beneficiary — after arguing the signature seemed inaccurate.
However, sources close to the late singer-songwriter slammed Priscilla for trying to get more money out of her daughter’s tragic death.
“It’s strictly a money grab,” an insider told Page Six. “She had no relationship with Priscilla, [her ex-husband] Michael Lockwood or her half-brother [Garibaldi].”
Meanwhile, Margera — who has been in and out of rehab for years — has reportedly relapsed amid his sobriety journey.
After the 43-year-old went on a social media rant while allegedly under the influence last week, his friend Steve-O begged him to “choose recovery” for the sake of his family.
“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…” Steve-O wrote in a now-deleted comment.
“You say you want to have a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen,” he continued.
“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.”
Hopefully, Priscilla and Margera can lean on each other these days.
