Tony Hawk divorced his third wife Lhotse Merriam for his best friend and business partner's wife Cathy, according to the New York Post.
Tony Hawk, the skateboarding legend and former World Champion, reportedly divorced Lhotse Merriam for the wife of his best friend Matt Goodman.Merriam found out about her husband's new relationship in December after she discovered a plane ticket to San Francisco that Hawk had booked for Cathy. The skateboarder and Cathy's husband Matt have been lifelong best friends. Tony filed for divorce from Merriam in San Diego on 11th February 2011. They have one child together, Kadence Clover, but the skateboarder has three sons from two previous marriages. In a statement at the time, the couple said, "We remain deeply committed and loving parents to our daughter, and out of respect for that responsibility we ask that people honor our family's privacy during this important time of transition". Cathy has been married to Matt Goodman for nearly 20 years and they have two children together. Sources close to the pair say they have now separated.
Tony Hawk and Goodman founded the action sports movie company '900 Films' together and Matt reportedly stood as a groomsman at every one of Hawk's three weddings. A representative for the sports star said, "We do not comment on the personal lives of our clients".
