Personal life[edit]

He recovered from an opioid painkiller addiction.[2]


In August 2011, he returned to his roots by taking part in a rap battle for King of the Dot. He went up against Dirtbag Dan and won on a 3-2 decision.[3] He was scheduled to return to King of the Dot in August 2012 to battle with the Australian rapper 360,[4][5] however, the battle was postponed,[6] as 360 was scheduled to receive ocular surgery at the time of the event.[7] Madchild has said that he is still interested in doing the battle.[8]

Legal troubles[edit]

In early 2011, it was reported that Bunting was banned from entering the United States, due to alleged links to the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Bunting said that he was detained at an American airport for approximately eight hours before being told he could not enter the country, and had been working with a lawyer in San Diego, California, to rectify the situation.[9][10] On July 11, 2013, it was announced via the Swollen Members Facebook page that Madchild was once again allowed to enter the United States.
