Johnny Knoxville has been able to endure his fair share of pain and torture on "Jackass," but is throwing in the towel on his marriage of more than a decade.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Knoxville filed for divorce this week in Los Angeles against his second wife, Naomi Nelson.

The couple originally tied the knot back in 2010, and Knoxville listed the date of separation as September 4, 2021 ... on their 11-year wedding anniversary.

Knoxville listed the reason for the split as "irreconcilable differences," and also requested joint legal and physical custody of the former couple's two minor children, 10-year-old Arlo and 2-year-old Rocko.

It's currently unclear if the two had a prenuptial agreement to keep Knoxville's Hollywood cash separate, or if Naomi is going to be entitled to a sizable cut of the "Jackass" fortune.

According to Knoxville's social media feeds, he does not post much about his private family life, however he did praise Naomi last May for a Mother's Day Tribute.
