Four years into their marriage, Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have reached the end of the line.
What led to Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet divorce?
The couple released a statement on social media, putting their decision into perspective and reasoning it with “the squeeze and changes of these transformational times.”
“A revolution is unfolding and our family is of no exception… feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring,” the statement continues.
The couple made no mention of the true motive behind the unbundling, only that it was in their best interest to “free each other to be who we are learning to become.”
Momoa and Bonet part ways after a 16-year relationship, five of which was in matrimony. Together, they have two children, Lola Lolani and Nakoa-Wolf.
In a 2017 interview with James Corden on his The Late Late Show, Momoa, aged 41, revealed he had a crush on Bonet (51) since the 1980s when she starred on the classic sitcom, The Cosby Show — he was eight years old.
“Ever since I was like, eight years old and I saw her on the TV, I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one, I’m like, ‘I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life and I’m going to get you.’”
Fate would pair the couple in 2005 when mutual friends introduced them at a New York City jazz club and while Momoa fanned out at the sight of his celebrity crush, Bonet knew he was different than other men she’d encountered.
Speaking to Porter Magazine in 2018, she reflected:
“I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day that we met. In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do. He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!”
