The website reported Margera, who has been battling kidney and liver failure for years, fell into a coma in October.
Perez Hilton reported that he collapsed at his home in Pennsylvania. Bam’s mother explained his liver failure was a result of a lifetime of excessive drinking.
Despite waking up four days, his organs continued to fail.
It’s yet another devastating blow for Bam, who lost Ryan Dunn, his best friend and co-star, in another alcohol-related death.
The 34-year-old crashed his Porsche in June 2011 after a night of heavy drinking at a bar in Pennsylvania, killing himself and his passenger Zachary Hartwell.
‘Don Vito’ also appeared in other projects alongside Bam (pictured together in 2005), including Viva La Bam
