Naomi Nelson and Johnny Knoxville

Who is Naomi Nelson?

Naomi Nelson is an American director, a production assistant, and a writer, but is probably better known to the public as Johnny Knoxville’s wife. The famous couple has two children, and they have been married since September 2010. She is known for working on a variety of television series and films, most recognized for her work on the series “Carnivale” (2005), and the documentary “Fifth Star” (2010).

The Untold Truth Of Naomi Nelson

Naomi Nelson was born on the 20th August 1980 in the USA, but her exact place of birth isn’t known; generally Naomi is trying to keep her private life out of the media, and for now she manages to do it.

It is difficult to determine what influenced her career choice because there is scarcity of information about her family background, and no information about her education. Going by her physical features, it is evident that Naomi is of mixed ethnicity. Less is known about her affairs before entering Hollywood.

Career

Naomi Nelson’s earliest known job was behind the camera, as per public records on IMBD. She made her debut as a crew member of the TV series “Carnivale” in 2005, on which she worked as an assistant producer in all 12 episodes of this HBO series.

She then took a break of four years until her next known project, the “Reel Grrls 2009 Productions”, which is a documentary fusion of various short films, in which she was co-director.

Reel Grrls is a non-profit organization, which aims to improve filmmaking and media literacy programs in the country, specifically for teenage girls. Participants create content from their lives on topics not covered in mainstream media, living as a homeless youth, working past a generational cycle of addiction, racial stereotypes, teen dating violence, and LGBT issues. Naomi’s most significant career achievement came in 2010 – she was the director and writer of the documentary film “Fifth Star”.

In this ten minute film, Naomi interviews historians, local politicians, and the Mayor of Seattle, about the history of women getting the right to vote in Washington state one hundred years ago. In recent years, she hasn’t been involved in any Hollywood projects, as she (apparently) retired from Hollywood and the entertainment industry after marriage.

Naomi is best known to the world for her relationship with Johnny Knoxville; the two met through mutual friends, and very quickly formed an unbreakable bond.

They dated for almost two years before elevating their relationship status to the next level – Johnny bought a 2.50-carat Edwardian engagement ring from LA’s Platt Boutique Jewelry and asked the big question. Before they married in September 2010, they welcome a son they named Rocko Akira Clapp, born in December 2009. In October 2011, their daughter Arlo Lemoyne Yoko Clapp joined the family. While this marriage is the first for Naomi, it is the second for her husband, Johnny, so she is stepmother to Madison from Knoxville’s previous marriage to Melanie Lynn Cates (1995-2008).

About Her husband Johnny Knoxville

Philip John Clapp was born on 11 March 1971, in Knoxville, Tennessee, into a working-class family; his father was a car salesman, and his mother was a teacher at Sunday school.

He has two older sisters. He moved to California to become an actor after graduating from South-Doyle High School in 1989.

Career

He adopted his stage name from being a fan of Johnny Cash, and his home town. Knoxville initially starred in commercials and as an extra in films. The idea that introduced him to the world of Hollywood was to test self-defense equipment on himself and this attracted Jeff Tremaine’s skateboarding magazine “Big Brother”. With his friends, producer Dimitry Elyashkevich, and the film director Spike Jonze, they made a deal with MTV, and the stunt show “Jackass” was born in 2000.

The show aired for three seasons until 2002, after which the same crew gathered around Knoxville, and made three feature films with the same theme and cast: “Jackass: the Movie” in 2002, “Jackass Number Two” in 2006, and the “Jackass 3D” in 2010. Johnny also participated in the Gumball 3000 for “Jackass” along with co-stars Chris Pontius and Steve-O.

In 2009 a short reality show “Nitro Circus”, about a group of friends performing dangerous acts, was produced and written by Knoxville.  Knoxville is an owner of a production company called Dickhouse Productions.

In May 2014, he announced the formation of a new production company called Hello Junior, having had a massive success with the film “Bad Grandpa” in late 2013, with Johnny Knoxville in the lead role. Johnny also had prominent roles in films “Men in Black II” in 2002, “A Dirty Shame, Walking Tall” in 2004, “The Dukes of Hazzard”, “The Ringer”, “The Last Stand” in 2013, and “Skiptrace” in 2016. Knoxville also voiced Leonardo in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” in 2014.

Personal Life and Net Worth

On 15 May 1995 Johnny married Melanie Lynn Cates, with whom he had daughter Madison a year later.

Johnny has starred in many films and has a number of other projects credited to his name, all of which have contributed to his wealth. As a result, Knoxville’s net worth is estimated at $75 million by authoritative sources, as of early 2020.
