It's fair to say that Johnny Knoxville took a while to find his niche. The daredevil was nearly 30 when he first fronted the adrenalin-charged, injury-prone franchise that would launch him to fame. These days, he's staying a bit quieter. Here's what happened to Johnny Knoxville.
Johnny Knoxville has always been a relatively private man when it comes to his romantic life. But the star had no choice but to watch details of one particular romance splash all over the tabloids in 2020. His former co-star from The Dukes of Hazzard, Jessica Simpson, was responsible.
The singer/actress revealed in her autobiography, Open Book, that she'd had a, quote, "emotional affair" with the Jackass creator in the mid-'00s. The only problem was that both parties were married at the time — Simpson to 98 Degrees vocalist Nick Lachey and Knoxville to Melanie Lynn Cates. In her book, Simpson confessed:
"It was like Johnny and I were prison pen pals, two people who wanted so much to be with each other but were kept apart."
Simpson insists that her relationship with Knoxville never turned physical, but that they continued to stay in touch once their remake of the hit TV show stopped shooting. Simpson would go on to split with her husband in 2005, while in 2007, Knoxville headed for the divorce courts, too.
