Jackass star Steve-O is headed for jail, and he doesn’t seem to mind one bit.

In August the TV star protested SeaWorld with a very dangerous stunt and he has revealed on Instagram that he has been sentenced to 30 days in LA County Jail as a result.

He also protested the organisation back in August 2014 and in his post today revealed some pretty candid thoughts on his punishment.

He also announced today (in the same post) that he is launching a campaign for “at-rish, inner city youth”.

"Considering I've become a clean and sober, dog-rescuing vegan, I must say I'm ready to go to jail– not just because it will bring so much attention to the plight of orcas in captivity, but because it's nice to let people know I haven't lost my edge," he wrote.

The actor has been sober since 2008 added: “What can I say, I’m a jackass.”

Just three months ago, Steve-O climbed a crane standing over 100 feet above a street in Hollywood. He held an inflatable whale and a sign protesting the controversial animal theme park.

He posted many videos of the stunt on his Facebook page after teasing his "big dangerous stunt" on Instagram. 

He regrets nothing.

"My whole crane-climbing, fireworks debacle really turned out to be pretty meaningful in the end, too.

I mean, if your goal is to make a statement about captivity, you may as well get yourself locked up!" he continued before sharing his new campaign.”

He finished his post by sharing a message of love with the city of LA. As one does.

Emergency services were called to the scene yesterday when Steve-O from Jackass scaled a huge crane to protest against Seaworld. 

There were serious concerns for his safety when he climbed 30metres up the massive structure in California. At the time, he was carrying an inflatable killer whale called Shammy – a reference to the park's most famous attraction, Shamu. 

He was arrested for trespassing – though fans have already begun a GoFundMe page to raise cash for his bail. 

In advance, Steve-O had posted to Facebook saying: "This is Shammy.

"We're going to do a big dangerous stunt in Los Angeles tomorrow that will probably get me in a lot of trouble, and you can watch it happen via a live stream, right here on Facebook, starting at exactly 7pm PST. See you then."

Let's do this live.

Seaworld has come under a lot of criticism in recent years with plenty of people alleging that its whales and other mammals are not kept in the best of care. As a result, it seems that visitor numbers and profits are falling.

Steve-O later posted another photo saying: "Did I mention that I'm really high in the air? Hearing sirens now. Check the video I posted at 7pm to see what I'm doing. I'll stream live again soon for the stunts."

Incredibly, in order to maximise publicity for the stunt, he furthermore let off fireworks at the top of the crane. 

Indeed, in his final video of the evening he acknowledged: "We definitely have their attention," as he looked underneath him and saw loads of police cars pulling up on the road below. 

And at the end of his final video he said: "Alright! Can I zoom in this f***ing Facebook… That is a lot, A LOT, of f***ing fire trucks. I mean come on!"

Some time later he posted on Facebook saying "Anyone wanna bail me out of jail?"

Last year, the actor and stuntman was slapped with a €220 fine after changing a motorway sign in San Diego to read: "SeaWorld Sucks".

We were more than a little shocked at the beginning of this year when it was revealed that X Factor's Stacey Solomon was dating none other than Jackass frontman Steve-O. Seven months on though, it seems the pair have called it quits.

Stacey and Steve-O met in January while filming reality ski show The Jump, and had been managing a long distance relationship between London and Los Angeles ever since. However a source confirmed to The Sun today that the romance is over, as Stacey had been finding their time apart hard to cope with.

"Stacey found it hard being away from Steve-O so they decided to put their relationship on hold," the source said. "He has a huge tour in the States, as that's where his fan base is. The relationship developed quickly and was a real whirlwind, but for the time being it's not to be."

Steve-O has been travelling across the US doing a series of comedy gigs with his Jackass co-stars, while Stacey has been busy on this side of the water promoting her debut album Shy and her first single of the same name.

 

Loved performing on ITV Weekend today! Thank u for having me

Just weeks ago the X Factor finalist lamented how hard long-distance romances can be, taking to Instagram to tell fans how much she missed her boyfriend.

"It gets harder every time! Hats off to all of you long distance couples making it happen!! See you on the other side @officiallysteveo I miss you already!" she wrote.

Speaking to New! magazine back in March, the 25-year-old said she had found a great match in Steve-O, despite their 15 year age gap. "I don't think I could find a 25-year-old male on my emotional level, to be honest. At 25, you're still a kid – and I have two children, responsibility and a mortgage, my mindset is a lot older than 25," she said.

"He is just the nicest person. He’s young at heart and fun like me. But he’s also very thoughtful."

We're sorry to hear things didn't work out.

Former X Factor star Stacey Solomon starred on reality ski show The Jump recently, and she seemed to be getting very cosy with one fellow contestant in particular – Steve-O from Jackass.

Now, in what has to be one of the most unexpected celebrity pairings in TV history, Stacey has confirmed the pair are indeed an item.

"We're seeing each other and seeing how things go," the singer revealed to New! magazine this week.

Steve-O has even planned a trip back to the UK next month, Stacey admitted. "After the show he had a day in England because of his flights so I invited him over for dinner, he's flown back since but he's coming back in April."

Last week, Stacey shared this sweet picture of the lovebirds with the caption, "@officiallysteveo miss you doofus! #JasmineAladdin X":

"He is just the nicest person. He’s young at heart and fun like me. But he’s also very thoughtful," the singer said of her new man.

At 40, Steve-O is 15 year's Stacey's senior, but the mum-of-two says the age gap is actually an advantage. "I don't think I could find a 25-year-old male on my emotional level, to be honest," she said.

"At 25, you're still a kid – and I have two children, responsibility and a mortgage, my mindset is a lot older than 25."

We're glad to see them both so happy!
