Tony Hawk shocked fans by divorcing third wife Lhotse Merriam for his best friend's estranged wife. Now, Hawk's BFF Matt Goodman is speaking out. But, the pal isn't slamming the skateboard legend for breaking the bro code, instead he tells Radar Online that he is "totally cool" with the relationship. SAY WHAT!?
Much to our surprise, Goodman, Hawk's former business partner, says in his interview that he bears no grudges.
"I know people will think it is strange, but I'm totally cool with it," Goodman told RadarOnline.com about Hawk's dating his wife.
"I had split up with Cathy over a year ago and she started dating Tony about seven months ago." Goodman said in the interview.
Goodman reported that Hawk had manned up and told him about the taboo relationship. "I knew Tony was not happy with Lhotse and I hope he finds that (happiness) with Cathy -- they have known each other a long time," he went on to tell Radar Online.
We didn't realize that unhappiness in a marriage meant it was time for the newest season of "Wife Swap." Either way, kudos to Goodman for taking the high road instead of a skateboard -- and doing an ollie across Hawk's multi-millionaire face. We guess the time-honored saying "bros before hos" is true. So grab the bowl of keys, your copy of 'Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice' and a fondue pot -- 'cause it's party time!
