Steve-O is in the hospital, obviously not well

March

Jackass prankster Steve-O (nee Stephen Glover) will be spending a little more time in the hospital after threatening suicide a week ago, Star reports.

The 33-year-old was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last weekend after sending e-mails to friends saying he wanted to take his own life. He was put on a 72-hour hold a la Britney Spears, but the stay has been extended, Star says.

"Steve is stabilized on meds at this point," a source told magazine. "He was also treated for burns on his skin as if he had been putting cigarettes out on his own body."

Glover has been charged with felony possession of cocaine following a March 3 arrest, TMZ reports. That can't be helping his state of mind.

"Right now he's in his extreme mania," a family member said. "His concerned friends and family are hoping he'll seek treatment. He doesn't need jail, he needs therapy. We're just really hoping that this will be the wake-up call that gets him back to himself."

The suicidal tendencies apparently resulted from a failed relationship, leading to a troubled scene when he was admitted to Cedars-Sinai.

"Steve started flipping out," another source said. "He told doctors he wanted to hurt himself badly. He wanted to break every bone in his body one by one."

Suddenly the self-abusing career choices are making a lot more sense. Be sure and check out the latest video insanity posted to his YouTube profile above.
