Lenny Kravitz feels he’s ‘really ready’ for a forever-love at the age of 54

2018 American Music Awards Press Room

Whenever I see Lenny Kravitz in a TV interview, I’m always reminded of the fact that he actually IS very charming. It’s not just good looks and mysterious rocker vibes. He’s very charming, sweet, intelligent and game for shenanigans, like when he flashed his abs at Emma Thompson when she was teasing him about his body. Anyway, if a hot, interesting, charming, funny, game, intelligent man like Lenny can’t find true love, what hope is there for the rest of us? Lenny chatted with People Magazine as a way to highlight his charitable foundation’s work, and of course he also talked a bit about his love life. His non-existent love life. The poor man just tours as a rock star constantly and then sits alone in his Bahamas home or his Paris apartment, sad because he cannot find THE ONE.

His love woes: Sitting just outside his home recording studio on the rural Bahamian island of Eleuthera, Lenny Kravitz—with his chiseled features, towering locks and timeless cool—reveals a shocker: he’s having a tough time in the love department. “I would really like [to find love]. But it’s difficult for me, being so dedicated to my art, which is not an excuse, it’s just difficult”. When the “Fly Away” singer is touring the world, “I’m nowhere or I’m everywhere,” he says.

His Let Love Rule Foundation. This past January, Kravitz’s Let Love Rule foundation and his dentist Jonathan Levine’s GLO Good Foundation brought free dental care to over 400 Eleuthera locals as part of their annual dental clinic. Kravitz and Levine’s sons Julian and Cody recently partnered up to launched Twice Toothpaste, with flavors for morning and night to promote better dental hygiene and raise funds to expand the clinic to include medical services for the poverty-stricken island. “It’s the best feeling in the world,” Kravitz says of the work they’re doing.

His relationship with his ex-wife Lisa Bonet: “We’re like brother and sister. After Lisa and I separated, we learned to find a new relationship. Then I met Jason [Momoa] when they got together and I love him, he loves my kid and I love their kids and we’re all one big family. It’s beautiful.”

He’s ready for a forever-love: “I’m at a place now where I’ve been through so many relationships, and I haven’t been good at it all the time, at all. I’ve had a lot to learn, but I feel like I’m at a place where I’m really ready for that.” Sounding hopeful, he adds “things come to you when you’re ready, I believe.”

Someone do a remake of Bridget Jones’ Diary in 2019 and cast Lenny. Come on, I would watch that. I mean… it’s a little bit funny to hear a 54-year-old man talk this way, about only just now realizing that he’s ready for a forever love. Only now, after decades of bedding beautiful models, actresses, singers, and everybody else. I’m actually sort of convinced that this is Lenny’s “line” – this is how he still picks up women around the world. Soulful eyes, quiet voice, an admission about how lonely it gets on tour, how he’s finally ready for a forever love… I would fall for that sh-t, I’ll admit.

    Forever doesn’t look particularly far off at his age… but good luck to him in finding love.

  2. Darla says:

    I do really admire the relationship they all have. they really do seem to be one big family. When you consider how common it is for people with kids to have ugly divorces, and then lots of drama when they remarry and even have more children with the new spouse…this is really an amazing situation they have. I think they are all very chill and loving people, Lenny, Lisa, and Jason. Very nice.

    • elimaeby says:

      I agree 100%. How much better would the world look if more divorced couples (especially those with children) took a page out of their book? Growing up with multiple households full of people who all love you can only be positive for kids.

    • Wow says:

      My father died when I was young and when my mom remarried I got step siblings. My step dads ex wife was so kind to me and went so far to include me in holidays, vacations and other things so it wasn’t her three kids then me just sitting in the corner.

      I appreciated her maturity and I know its not possible always, but when kids are involved it is best to try to get over it.

      • Veronica S. says:

        There’s really no excuse not to treat your stepchildren like your own children anyway because they ARE yours. If you married a person with children, they becomes your family, too. I can understand being cautious about crossing certain discipline lines if both of the bio parents are still in the picture, but as somebody who had a very ugly stepparent experience, I have no patience for people who treat it as optional. You can’t be a family if you don’t accept everybody as one.

    • tealily says:

      They all just seem so cool.

  3. Maya says:

    Lenny and Angelina should get together and double date with Lisa & Jason 😍

  4. SuperStef says:

    Love me some Lenny! He’s timeless and one of the best live performers I’ve seen.

    Do you think he has a type?

  5. girl_ninja says:

    I volunteer as tribute!

  6. Sidewithkids says:

    @Maya, you’re reading my mind. I’ve been saying this. Someone needs to set them up ASAP. I too like Jason and Lisa and their blended family. Lenny would be great for Angie and the kids and vice versa. He could be her true soulmate.

    Lol. I like Lenny but my man played the field for so long w/ young models now he’s looking for love b/c he’s getting older. In a few years, Leo Dicaprio will be saying the same thing.

    • Felicia says:

      Usually when a guy that age starts saying they are “looking for love” or looking for “the one”, it’s because he actually looking for someone who’s going to take care of him in his old age. See Vincent Cassel…

    • Myrtle says:

      Warren Beatty prime example.

      Lenny’s hair these days, though, I’m sorry. Those short, phat dreads are too silly… Looks just like a mop!!

    • TabithaStevens says:

      There is no way on earth that Lenny would put up with Jolie’s nonsense.

  7. Mrs. Peel says:

    Is Naomi Harris single? They’d make a very hot couple.

  8. Tiffany says:

    Leonard Albert Kravitz…..

    Call me.

  9. Lucy says:

    I don’t know, you guys…I believe him, sorta? All three of them (Lisa, Jason and Lenny) do seem like lovely people. That’s all I’ve got.

  10. FredsMother says:

    More like he is desperate. Men at this age freak out and then want to marry right away…

  11. Croatian says:

    This whole article is a huge WIN.
    Loving the writing recently!

  12. Patty says:

    Lenny and Angelina would never work as a couple. For starters, the kids would cramp his lifestyle. I’m going to translate this: what he really means is he’s ready to find someone who will fit into life and already established routine.

    • Darla says:

      Well I’m ready for that too. Dont judge! lol

    • Kitten says:

      Exactly. They’re both sexy AF but they would be a MESS. For both their sakes, just NO.

    • SJR says:

      Hey, someone who fits into my life and would adjust their schedule to fit my already established routine is exactly what I am looking for too. Pretty rare to find that IRL. And, of course, I’m a working 40 hours at a job to pay the bills.
      If I had the looks, talent, money that Lenny has….are ya kidding?

      If he’s serious, I’m thinking the line should form to the right, in a polite and orderly fashion. 🙂

  13. babco says:

    I m sure he s gonna find a 20 something very mature for her age’,

    His dating problem probably is that fresh young things don t know who he is.
    Even judging by the comments here, he d have no problem at all with adult women if he cared.

    He s just a dirty dog.
    Why do you think he has been hanging out in the fashion world for decades?

    • Darla says:

      LOL you are probably right. And a lot of women do like him, but I don’t know how much awareness he has among the younger generation. Personally, he does nothing for me. None of these famous guys do with two exceptions. the first being the physically mind blowing Jason Momoa. the second being Chris Evans. And Evans only won me over with his twitter feed. Well, and the muscles. I am so shallow with the muscles.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Honestly, I’m almost better with them doing one-night stands with twenty-somethings than men his age actually marrying them. At least that way, it’s consensual but not sucking away years of their vital youth.

    • Good GRrrrrl says:

      Hah! He’ll find a blinkey eyed “old soul” 😂 blank slate type. Yawn. And I usually love Lenny, but his style is doing him no favors.

  14. Reggie says:

    he has found love plenty of times

    his problem is he cant keep it in his pants or to one woman

    Matter of fact , Yall remember when he and Nicole Kidman were a thing? Word is they were engaged or talking engagement when next thing you know Lenny popped up in Brazil dancing with Adriana Lima and a bunch of models and they split.

    Imagine if they were still together now or the kids they would have had, damn you Lenny!

    • Sidewithkids says:

      Maybe b/c he’s scared of commitment. A lot of men are like this. It takes them to get older to really get it. But yeah, Lenny dates younger so a lot of those women just want to party and have fun. If he’s serious about wanting to settle up he needs to make more healthier dating choices.

    • LOL says:

      I think he really liked Adriana. They were engaged, but she left him for a prince.

      • Reggie says:

        he was never engaged to Adrianna, and I’m quite sure they didnt date because allegedly she would not have sex before marriage

        She ended up marrying and divorcing an NBA player

      • LOL says:

        Reggie: He was engaged to Adriana and she left him for a prince. She said Lenny wasn’t the one.
        Yes, she was married to that player. He cheated on her.

  15. Sam says:

    Ever since his leather pants ripped on stage, he seems to have matured.

  16. Fluffy Princess says:

    So Lenny is sending out the “love call.” Good lord, I hope he is prepared for the absolute stampede of women lining up to try and get a crack at him. Or, perhaps that’s just my perception because I think that he’s always been so.FREAKING. SEXY. Just smoking hot. Damn, let me fan myself.

  17. Milkweed says:

    You know what he should say if he’s serious? That he’s ready to put his career on hold and follow a woman around for a while.

  18. aenflex says:

    Lisa Bonet has some serious game.

  19. WineGrrl says:

    I like him, and I like dreads, but I don’t like those dreads on him. The shape is weird.

    • Keira says:

      Well said. I think he’s super hot w short hair but the sizzle for me def turned off when it got long.

  20. Anare says:

    I’m right here Lenny.

  21. Keira says:

    He has been saying this line since 2003 or so. Meanwhile he *has* been involved with women, one in particular, though I think they have broken up. After having been hounded by paparazzi a lot in the 80s and 90s—with all his high profile love interests—my hunch is he uses this line to deflect attention, and at the same time keeps a very low profile with the women he does get involved with. If you read his interviews, his responses to common questions are extremely consistent and repetitive.
