Knoxville Takes Polygraph Test Over Jessica Simpson Rumors
Jessica Simpson's relationship with Johnny Knoxville came under
scrutiny again last week (03AUG05), when the former Jackass star was
surprised with an on-air polygraph test during a radio interview.
Simpson and Knoxville, who are both happily married to other people,
have long been fighting off rumors that they embarked on a romance while
shooting their new movie The
Dukes of Hazzard.
And Knoxville was stunned when he arrived for an interview with US
shock jock Howard Stern and was asked to take a lie detector test, where
the questions included if he had sex with Simpson, if they'd ever
tongue-kissed and if he ever thought about the singer while
After answering no to all questions, the polygraph indicated that he
did not have sex with Simpson, but that he did kiss her and pictured her
while pleasuring himself.
Knoxville says, "I don't put any faith in that test."
His representative adds, "The lie detector test was all in good
fun. Johnny thought it was hilarious."
