Tony Hawk‘s best friend and business partner, Matt Goodman, says he’s “totally cool” Tony is dating his wife Cathy Goodman because they had split before it started.
Tony filed for divorce from his third wife Lhoste Merriam and is starting a relationship with Cathy now, but Radar Online reports their relationship started before the divorce was filed.
“I know people will think it is strange but I’m totally cool with it,” Goodman told Radar Online about Tony dating his wife. “I had split up with Cathy over a year ago and she started dating Tony about seven months ago.
“I have a new girlfriend now and I hope Tony, Cathy and Lhoste can all be happy,” he added. “I texted Tony today and we are all trying our best to get along.”
And by all of them, he means their children too.
“Our kids are all friendly and we do not want a bad situation — people are making it a bigger deal than it is,” Goodman explained.
“I knew Tony was not happy with Lhoste and I hope he finds that (happiness) with Cathy — they have known each other a long time,” Goodman added.
And he knew they were starting a relationship.
“He told me about the relationship although I suspected something before that,” he said. “Life can be strange but I bear no grudges and just want to move on with my life now.”
Wonder if Lhoste feels the same?
