AceShowbiz - Johnny Knoxville is calling it quits with his second wife Naomi Nelson. The "Jackass" star has reportedly filed for divorce from the mother of two of his three children, after more than a decade of marriage.
The 51-year-old actor/professional wrestler filed the papers to officially end his marriage to Naomi on Thursday, June 16 in Los Angeles after they have separated for a while, according to TMZ. In the docs, he lists September 4, 2021, which happened to be their 11-year wedding anniversary, as the date of separation.
As for what led to their split, Johnny cites irreconcilable differences. He is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their two minor children. He also says that he's got separate property from Naomi, but it will be determined later.
Johnny and Naomi welcomed their first child together, 12-year-old son Rocko, in December 2009 before they tied the knot on September 24, 2010. She later gave birth to a daughter, 10-year-old Arlo, in October 2011 in Los Angeles.
Johnny last shared a post about Naomi on August 20, 2021, when giving a birthday shout-out to his "wonderful wife." Sharing his pictures with Naomi, he sweetly wrote in the caption, "Happy birthday to my love and light. A wonderful wife and a beautiful mother. You are the sunshine on my face and everything good. I love you very much. Happy birthday."
He, however, left out Naomi in a Mother's Day tribute posted in May of this year. "Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there. And happy Mother's Day to my Mom, we miss you every day," he captioned a throwback photo of him as a child with his late mom.
Johnny was previously married to fashion designer Melanie Lynn Cates from 1995 until they separated in July 2006. Their final divorce arrangements were settled in July 2009. They have a 26-year-old daughter together.
