Johnny Knoxville Pulls the Plug on Marriage

7/3/2007 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville is officially 86'ing his marriage.


TMZ has obtained documents, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, in which Knoxville (real name P.J. Clapp) cited "irreconcilable differences" in his nearly twelve-year marriage to wife Melanie.

We're told there is no prenup and Knoxville will pay spousal support. He's asking for joint custody of the couple's only child, 11-year-old daughter Madison.

Interestingly, Knoxville's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, signed the divorce petition last January but it wasn't filed until today.

Just a little message to all of you who talk trash about PJ, most of you have never even met him so how would you know if he's an A hole or if he cheated on Melanie with Jessica? U DONT KNOW! If you met him, then go ahead and say whatever the hell you want about him but otherwise my suggestion is that you find something better to do than to google someone you hate just so that you can talk trash about them. I'm sure Johnny's a great guy and I have no reason to hate him and niether should u if you've never met him. And besides...the whole thing with Jessica simpson is probably a rumor cuz thats what tabloids do! if none of u have ever been stupid and made mistakes in your life, then feel free to critisize him. well, I wish the best for him and I hope he reaches his dreams and his life goes well and that God blesses him...I LOVE YOU JOHNNY
