“Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville filed for divorce this week from his second wife, several outlets reports Thursday.
The 51-year-old, whose legal name is Philip John Clapp, cited “irreconcilable differences” in his Tuesday filing in Los Angeles to wife Naomi Nelson, a documentary filmmaker.
He is seeking joint custody of their 12-year-old son Rocko and 10-year-old daughter Arlo.
The couple married in September 2010 and have been separated since last September 24 – the date of their wedding anniversary, the documents reportedly said.
A month before the reported separation, Knoxville wrote a glowing tribute to his wife for her birthday.
“Happy birthday to my love and light,” he said on Instagram along with a photo of Nelson and their two kids. “A wonderful wife and a beautiful mother. You are the sunshine on my face and everything good. I love you very much. Happy birthday.”
Knoxville married his first wife Melanie Clapp in 1995. The couple share daughter Madison, 26.
They divorced in 2008 after a long separation.
Knoxville was the co-creator and star of MTV’s “Jackass” stunt reality show, first airing in 2000 that has spawned a number of movies, including “Jackass Forever,” which came out earlier this year.
