Jessica SimpsonJessica Simpson has reportedly turned to Johnny Knoxville for support since her split from husband Nick Lachey. The beautiful blonde has been comforted by her gorgeous Dukes of Hazzard co-star since her public split from singer Nick. A source said: "There has been no shortage of shoulders for Jess to cry on. Lots of friends - both male and female - have rallied round. But Johnny has been one of the most supportive."

But despite his compassion for the singer turned actress, sources insist the Jackass star and Jessica are just good friends. A source is quoted by Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "There's nothing going between them. Johnny is a happily married man who just feels very protective of Jess and what she is having to go through at the moment."

Jessica married Nick in 2002 and the pair went on to star in their own reality TV show Newlyweds, which followed the trials and tribulations of the couple. The pair had been at the center of endless break-up rumours over the last six months and finally announced they were splitting last week.
