Johnny Knoxville, Single Jackass
Posted Mar 24th 2008 1:03PM by TMZ Staff
Johnny Knoxville is officially on the market. His divorce has been signed, sealed and delivered.
Knoxville, who was married to wife Melanie Lynn for 11 years, is officially unhitched, according to legal papers obtained by TMZ and filed in L.A. Superior Court.
Even though the divorce is a done deal, there are still outstanding issues of community property, spousal and child support and child custody that must be worked out. The documents say until the outstanding issues are dealt with, Knoxville must cover the family with health and medical insurance.
The docs say in the event Johnny dies, he`ll hold Melanie harmless from any legal fallout -- translated, he does a lot of stupid stunts and it`s risky. It`s probably standard language in these divorces but it means something special when you star in "Jackass."
Knoxville, whose legal name is Philip John Clapp, filed for divorce last July.
Knoxville married Melanie Lynn Cates on May 15, 1995. They have a daughter, Madison (born 1996). His daughter can be heard in the credits for Jackass Number Two, is seen in "The Making of Jackass Two" on the special features on the DVD, and was seen in the credits of Jackass 3D, punching Tremaine with a boxing glove. After 11 years of marriage, the couple separated in July 2006. Knoxville filed for divorce on July 3, 2007. The marriage was legally ended in March 2008, with final divorce arrangements settled in July 2009. The former couple share custody of their daughter.
