Actor, Johnny Knoxville has reportedly filed for divorce from Naomi Nelson.
The Jackass star – real name Philip John Clapp – is said to have cited irreconcilable
differences as his relationship with his second wife comes to an end.
As revealed in court documents, Knoxville and his partner separated in September
24, 2021, which was the date of their 11-year wedding anniversary.
NSL LEARNT: the 51-year-old star wants joint legal and physical custody of
their children Rock, 12, and Arlo, 10.
Meanwhile, it’s said the documents state Knoxville thinks he has separate property
from his former partner, but he is ‘unaware of the full nature and extent of said
separate property and it will be figured out at a later date.
The actor and stunt performer is usually private when it comes to his personal life,
but last year he did pay tribute to Naomi in a sweet Mother’s Day post.
Alongside two snaps of her and their kids, he wrote on Instagram: ‘Happy Mother’s
Day to my one true love and the most wonderful mother our kids could ever hope for.
‘You bless us every day and I and we love you very much.’
Last month it was revealed a new Jackass TV series is in the works for Paramount Plus
after the huge success of the gang’s big-screen return in Jackass Forever.
‘Based on the success of Jackass Forever, we’re working with the creators to continue
the partnership with a new series, bringing even more ridiculous antics straight to
Paramount+,’ Paramount Global CEO Bob Bakish confirmed.
Besides Netflix’s Jackass 4.5, Knoxville’s most recent on-screen appearance came at
WrestleMania 38 when he defeated Sami Zayn in a wild Anything Goes Match which
featured a giant mouse trap, Party Boy, a bowling ball and Wee Man bodyslamming
the WWE star.
Speaking before the match, he exclusively told Metro.co.uk: ‘I would love to come
back and do something more in the future! It’s been a dream come true working with
‘It’s been so much fun, I didn’t realize I would become so completely obsessed with it
like I have, it’s so fun!’
