LOS ANGELES, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Skateboarding icon Tony Hawk is divorcing his third wife, lingerie store owner Lhotse Merriam, court records filed in California's North San Diego County show.

Hawk and Merriam were married for five years and are the parents of a 2-year-old daughter.

"We have made the difficult decision to file for divorce," the couple said in a joint statement issued to UsMagazine.com Monday. "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. Thank you for your understanding."
