Tony Hawk reveals why his first three marriages failed – and the reason he won’t let the same thing happen again with fourth wife Cathy Goodman

Tony Hawk has revealed the reason why his first three marriages failed. 

The former professional skateboarder, 51, told the Sydney Morning Herald on Sunday that his jet-setting career was the main issue behind each split.  

‘The most challenging factor in my relationships remains travel and prioritising my time,’ said Tony, admitting that each marriage was still ‘very different’.

‘There were all kinds of other elements, such as behaviours I’ve managed to get control of,’ added Tony, when asked about his personal life. 

He is now married to fourth wife, Catherine Goodman, who he said ‘I do’ to in 2015. 

‘We connect on a deep level in terms of our approach to life. I hate to use the word “alternative”, but we have a unique approach to parenting,’ said Tony of Catherine.

Catherine has two children from a previous marriage, and Tony has four of his own.

Tony was first married to Cindy Dunbar from 1990 to 1993.  

He was then with Erin Lee from 1996 to 2004, before enjoying a five year union with actress Lhotse Merriam from 2006 to 2011. 

The star specifically said his marriage to Erin ended due to his travel commitments.

In January, Tony announced a two date Australian speaking tour, which was meant to start this week before the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in it being cancelled.

The ‘Evening with Tony Hawk’ events were set to give fans a chance to ask questions as he shared career highlights and stories with the audience.

It is currently unknown if the events will be rescheduled.
