Lenny Kravitz is ‘best friends’ with Lisa Bonet, and Jason Momoa is ‘like a brother to me’

Lenny Kravitz seems like a chill dude about literally everything – romance, sex, friendships, mortgage payments, international tours, all of it. Like, he lives such a Zen existence and while he cares about many things and many people, he just doesn’t stress about any of it. So… I’ll never really buy that Lenny had a hard time letting go of Lisa Bonet or seeing her remarried. I bet when their marriage ended, they instantly had good feelings for each other and he genuinely wished her well. And clearly, Lenny also adores her second husband, Jason Momoa. They’ve been super-friendly for years. Lenny described the relationship in a recent interview:

Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet put in a lot of work to get to where they are today. Opening up about their journey, the 55-year-old musician shared becoming friends again after their split was “very difficult.”

“You go through a marriage with somebody, you break up and it’s very difficult,” Kravitz shared in an interview with U.K. publication The Times. “But [Lisa and I] put the work in and we took the time so that we could become best friends again. Our families are blended.“

Kravitz and Bonet, 51, met in 1985 before eloping in 1987 and welcoming daughter Zoë Kravitz a year later. The pair were together until 1993 when they divorced amicably. Beginning her relationship with Jason Momoa in 2005, Bonet went on to welcome two children before the couple officially tied the knot in October 2016. Lenny Kravitz also has a close relationship with Momoa, 39.

“I love her husband — he’s like a brother to me — and I love the kids,” Kravitz told The Times, once again underscoring that their tight dynamic didn’t just happen overnight. “It’s beautiful, but it takes work,” he added.

I believe that Lenny and Jason are like brothers and that Lenny adores Jason and Lisa’s kids and all that. What I don’t believe is that it was a lot of work! Maybe I just have the completely wrong idea about Lenny, but doesn’t he just seem too chilled out to get all angsty or possessive over Lisa, or Jason’s relationship with Lenny’s daughter, or any of that? I don’t know, they always just seemed 100% fine.

    Lisa bonet has excellent taste in men

    • Fluffy Princess says:

      Does she ever. She has been married to two of the sexiest men on the planet–and both seemingly nice and chill and arty, too. Her man mojo is of the highest order.

      Lenny Kravitz has maintained his serious hotness for 30+ years. What is that phrase that was going around a few months ago? BDE? Lenny has had that BDE for decades…

      If anyone “invented” “conscious uncoupling” it’s Lenny and Lisa — not Gwynie and Chris Martin.

    • Bazoo says:

      I remember when Lisa married Lenny. Cosby seemed pissed at the time and Lisa got some negative press about it.
      Time truly does tell, doesn’t it?

  2. Bella Bella says:

    Of course it takes work. He’s not magical! He’s a guy with an ego.

  3. Renee2 says:

    Does anyone remember Neneh Cherry?? Neneh was friends with Lisa. Apparently the song Buddy X is about him, he was supposedly cheating on Lisa left, right, and center. So if that’s true, I can see why they would need to put the work in to regain trust and become friends.

    Also, he literally said that they had to put the work in, why would he make that up?? If there were no issues, he would have responded differently.

    • Audrey says:

      I LOVED Neneh Cherry. Thanks for bringing back a memory!

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      I forgot about that! Yup. This is why I believe him that it took work. And I agree, he has no reason to make that up.

    • Kage says:

      Yeah he cheated on her a lot, and I think he was hurt and offended that she decided to leave. These super chill artsy guys are not always as nice as they seem.

      Love the way he dresses though, and that he was mature enough to build that bridge again.

    This trio is #lifegoals

  5. Boxy Lady says:

    I remember when Lenny and Lisa broke up. I don’t know that it was really “amicable.” He was on the road constantly and he cheated a lot on her. He has never explicitly said that he cheated but plenty of other people have said it. Neneh Cherry’s song Buddy X is about her observing Lenny while they toured together. He dedicated his album Mama Said to Lisa, which contains a song called It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over. He was definitely trying to get her back for awhile. Lisa and Lenny put in the work to be friends for their daughter’s sake, which is commendable, but from what I can tell he didn’t just let her go; it was a process.

  6. MangoAngelesque says:

    Well, their marriage ended because he cheated on her like mad (even he’s acknowledged this), so them getting to friendship, then closeness and family love probably WAS difficult, because that’s a pretty big betrayal. Lenny may be a chill dude (and I adore him, this is in no way maligning him), but that doesn’t mean Lisa was chill about getting back to even with her ex who cheated on her. I imagine that did take a lot of effort on both their parts, and they’ve done an awesomely amazing job at coming full circle to being family again.

  7. Lucy says:

    This is lovely. Speaks really well about the three of them.

  8. Ann says:

    I bend the knee to Lisa Bonet. She is queen of getting that good D. If there was a way to bottle her mojo I’d buy it in bulk.

  9. bonobochick says:

    IIRC, Lenny wrote “It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over” about his marriage to Lisa Bonet so I find that pretty telling about his emotions at that time.

  10. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I absolutely believe it took work. They split because he cheated on her – multiple times if I’m not mistaken. And she left him. And he spent a good long while trying to win her back. The song “It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over” is about him trying to get her back.
    So yes it’s great to see that they have been able to rebuild a friendship and he and Jason are friends, but I have no doubt it was hard.

    • Eleonor says:

      Having a daughter also is a good reason to keep things on good terms.
      I have menaged to keep friendship with my ex husband. We don’t have children, but it took a lot of time and work, and I am happy to have him in my life, he is one of the best person I have ever met, one of the rare persons I know I really can trust.

  11. Liz says:

    I’ve met tons of people managing ex relationships very well. Neutrality is probably the norm. My heart goes out to anyone who can’t achieve this or those who are dealing with someone who can’t handle it.

  12. Senator Fan says:

    Sounds like they were able to put the kids first and now have a happy, blended family. That’s awesome for the kids and all involved. Well done adults. lol

  13. Sportlady20 says:

    He cheated on her, his song “It Ain’t Over TIL It’s Over” is about him wanting her back. I heard a band mate of his talking about how that song always will be Lenny’s heartache. He tried to win her back. So I believe in the beginning it was work, that’s not something you step lightly past. Thankfully they did & it’s super cool to see their new dynamics.
