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.

He's trippin' on hisself... whatever... who needs it ?

Melanie, take the spousal support you deserve and enjoy that you are single again.

She should have selected "incurably insane" instead of "irreconcilable differences" given his on-screen and off-screen stunts. No court would disagre with her.

Yes yes I was just coming to say that, that's where my thought came from on that one, the Former Mrs Clapp put the run on her, and now she's history, Ms Simpson should be doning her lingerie and overcoat as we speak!

P J Clapp aka Johnny Knoxville tried to date my daughter while in high school with her. She thought he was a moron then, and her opinion hasn't changed.

I don't know why his wife didn't divorce the cheating son of a biatch sooner or be the one to file. Best of luck to her..i hope she gets a ton of money and finds herself a hot, faithful dude who doesn't make her hide in the shadows while he acts like a single dude. Knoxville should be ashamed.
