Tony Hawk On The Hunt For Lady Hawk #4

Might we please get a moment of grind-free silence in memory of Tony Hawk‘s most recent marriage?  Tony Hawk and wife Lhotse Merriam announced their divorce today via a statement to People.  “We have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the couple explained. “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.” Looks like Tony got wicked air and just kept going…metaphorically-speaking, of course.

The professional skateboarder filed a divorce petition on Friday to end his third marriage to his wife of five years, with whom Tony has his only daughter, two-year-old Kadence Clover Hawk. Hawk also has three sons from his previous marriages: Hudson Hawk with ex-wife Cindy Dunbar, and Spencer and Keegan with ex Erin Lee. You know what they say: you can’t keep a hawk from flying if you don’t clip its wings. Or keep it in some kind of cage, which would probably be illegal given that Tony is actually a human.


Gwyneth Paltrow Glitters At World Sports Awards

Gwyneth Paltrow

Oh, come on! Another awards show for movie stars after the Oscars? You gotta be kidding! Well, not quite. Despite the attendance of stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Clive Owen, Hugh Grant and Michelle Rodriguez—who had her trademark leather jacket on over her gown, you go Michelle—Abu Dhabi’s Laureus Awards celebrated the accomplishments of our world’s greatest athletes, including Tony Hawk, Monica Seles and Julius Irving. Who knew Kevin Spacey and Kyle MacLachlan had such love for the game? Or, for that matter, the United Arab Emirates?
