Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk is filing for divorce with his wife of five years, Lhotse Merriam.
“We have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the couple says in a joint statement.
“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,” the statement continues. “Thank you for your understanding.”
Hawk, 42 and Merriam married in January 2006 on the island of Tavarua, Fiji and had a child together, Kadence Clover Hawk, in June 2008.
This divorce marks Hawk’s third failed marriage. In addition to Kadence, Hawk has three sons from his previous relationships.
