The superstar skateboard legend and father of four divorced Lhoste Merriam  — only to run off with the wife of his lifelong pal!

Tony Hawk, super-wealthy from all of his years on top of the pro skateboarding world, may think the normal rules don’t apply to him. Tony dumped his third wife, his former publicist, when they divorced in February. Now the New York Post is reporting that Lhoste Merriam learned back in December that her husband was running around with Cathy Goodman, wife of Tony’s best friend and business partner Matt Goodman.

The tipoff, insiders tell the Post, was an airline ticket Lhoste discovered that showed Tony, 42, was booking a trip for Cathy to join him in San Francisco. Maybe Lhoste should have seen this coming! After all, she married Tony after he dumped Wife No. 2, Erin, in 2006. And Erin had been his kids’ nanny!

The Goodmans –married for nearly 20 years — have two kids. They are said to be separated now. Matt has been especially close to Tony, friends say, since childhood. Guess that bromance is over now!

Tony and Lhoste had one child together, 2-year-old daughter Kadence Clover. He has three sons from his first two marriages.
