Professional Idiot further details the other thing contributing to its writer’s overall happiness was his then-new girlfriend, Candy Jane Tucker. He met her in August 2002 at a bar in New York City. Jane was only eighteen at the time and had just graduated from high school a few months earlier.

him all the time at his friends, Dunlap and Berk’s apartment in New York City. She’d also frequently travel with him, and they even had a good long distant relationship. The three passports holder claims Candy and he — were genuinely in love.

Much like in Jackass, Stephen is almost always a game to risk his life in the real world as well.
And while he managed to pull off this whole condom/intestine stunt, the undercover cops somehow were able to confront him outside the hotel he was staying in Sweden. Lucky for him, he had enjoyed the stuff the other night. After that, Steve spent some time and jail. Candy, at the time, was still his girlfriend. In his memoir, Steve-O writes how he missed her every day he was in the lock-up.

Steve-O Insecurities Ended His Relationship With Candy Jane Tucker
The Gonzo star and Jane had been living together. After a while Candy decided to move to California to try and make her own career. It was then when things started to crumble between the two, narrates the former drug addict.
“I felt like she’d gotten the fame bug and wanted to be a star herself. That in and of itself might not have been a problem. But I believed she started to see me as an embarrassment, like someone holding her back,”
Steve remembers in his book. He adds,
I got the sense she felt she could do better than me. There’s a distinct possibility I was just paranoid and that those ideas were as much a projection of my feeling.
Nonetheless, the stunt lover had already poisoned the water between him and Candy with all his pessimism and paranoia. The 11 years of age difference also started to bother Gilchrist. He explained, at the time, they both had a lot of growing to do and he was sure they couldn’t do it together.
Stephen tried to tell her all those things but did so without politeness and maturity. Amidst the rift, Wildboyz star reports there was a lot of yelling and crying. He even drunk and destroyed a bunch of things in their apartment.
