Jackass star Johnny Knoxville's divorce from his ex-wife Melanie was finalized in a Los Angeles court, with the actor agreeing to pay $6,000 monthly in child support for their 13-year-old daughter.

The ex-couple, who were married for 12 years, split much of their bank accounts evenly, with Melanie also getting half of residuals from the Jackass franchise and Dukes of Hazzard movie (for which Knoxville was paid $5 million), under the terms of the agreement Friday.

Knoxville, whose real name is Philip John Clapp, also retained his stake in a number of production companies, and will share joint custody over his daughter.
