Veteran actress Lisa Bonet and her husband, actor Jason Momoa, have announced that, after four years of marriage, they are splitting. The now-former Hollywood couple shared the heartbreaking news earlier this week.
Bonet, who is most famous for her role as the carefree older sister on the hit sitcom “The Cosby Show,” said in a joint statement posted to the “Aquaman” star’s page that, “We have all felt 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.”
Bonet and Momoa, who have been together since 2005 after being introduced to each other by mutual friends at a jazz club, noted that they were sharing the news with fans “not because we think it’s newsworthy but so that as we go about our lives, we may do so with dignity and honesty.”
The actress, who is 54, and Moma, 42, still appear to be on good terms following the breakup, stating that “The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other to be who we are learning to become….”
The former child star and the action film star share two children: Lola, whom they welcomed in 2007, and their second child, Nakoa-Wolf, born in December 2008. The actress is also mom to “Little Big Things” star Zoë Kravitz, whom she shares with her ex-husband and singer Lenny Kravitz.
Fans spared no time before bringing up the “Fly Away” singer’s name following news of the split, including one Twitter user who wrote, “Lenny Kravitz bouta run after Lisa Bonet again.”
“After hearing that Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet are breaking up, all of us are hoping Lenny Kravitz will finally win her back again,” wrote another.
“My prayer is that Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz will remarry and that Jason Momoa will marry them and serve as Lenny’s best man,” wrote a third user. “This is the only option to make us ALL happy… Right?”
