Johnny Knoxville's wife is furious about rumours the actor had an affair with his Dukes Of Hazzard co-star Jessica Simpson.

The former Jackass funnyman was reported to have romanced the reality TV beauty on the set of the movie remake - despite the fact he's married to MELANIE CLAPP and Simpson's married to former boyband star, Nick Lachey.

And Knoxville - real name PHILLIP CLAPP - admits the tales have had an affect on his marriage.

He tells the New York Daily News, "I guess I'd have to say she's standing over me right now. No knife. But she does wield a mean pepper spray."
