For Tony Hawk, the third time was not the charm. It was announced today that skateboarding legend Tony Hawk would be divorcing his wife of five years, Lhotse Merriam. The two were married back in 2006 in Fiji and have a 3-year-old daughter named Kadence Clover Hawk.
They issued a joint statement saying, “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.”
With Tony Hawk’s extremely busy schedule and responsibilities not just to his daughter with Lhotse but to his three sons from his previous marriages, it would be hard on any marriage. But there was no scandal (that we know of) big public spats, instead the reasons for breaking up remain secret.
Here’s hoping that their divorce will be amicable.
