Zoe Kravitz filed for divorce from Karl Glusman just before Christmas

"Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald" World Premiere At UCG Bercy In Paris

This news shocked me! Zoe Kravitz has filed for divorce from Karl Glusman, her husband of a year and a half. Zoe and Karl weren’t some spur-of-the-moment couple – they’ve been together since 2016, and they lived together for a while before they got engaged. They had a regular-length engagement too, and Zoe threw a big wedding in Paris, at her father’s huge Paris mansion. So what happened? No one is saying.

Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman have called it quits. In court records obtained by PEOPLE, the Big Little Lies star, 32, filed for divorce from Glusman, 32, on Dec. 23.

A rep for Kravitz confirms the split exclusively to PEOPLE.

Kravitz and Glusman, who were first linked in October 2016, wed in June 2019 at the Paris home of the actress’ father, Lenny Kravitz. Over the summer, the actress celebrated the pair’s wedding anniversary, sharing a black-and-white photo from their nuptials. “One year,” she captioned the image.

[From People]

I looked through her Instagram and it’s been months and months since Karl made an appearance on her IG. Which doesn’t mean that much – Zoe was never the type to show off her marriage in tons of couple selfies or anything, but still, it feels notable that she hasn’t posted anything about him since their one-year anniversary. I wonder if this is a pandemic split? Perhaps they spent a ton of together during lockdown and they began getting on each other’s nerves. But to file for divorce just before Christmas… yikes. That says to me that she was mad at him about something. Hmmm.

    Not necessarily, sometimes when you know it’s over you don’t want to ‘waste’ another holiday pretending family-joy-cheer that isn’t there. Makes sense to rip off the bandaid

    • Cali says:

      I think something happened to let her know it’s over. She just posted an IG message about “People places and things that no longer serve my greatest and highest good.” It shows a drag queen taking out the trash🤭 I wonder what he done.

  2. RoyalBlue says:

    and apparently he went and deleted pictures of her and their wedding on his social media. not good. i wonder if he wanted children and she wasn’t ready yet. i wonder if they had fundamentally different ideas on money and savings, i wonder if they just realized they did not enjoy their locked down life together, where one liked monopoly and the other just wanted to watch sports highlights. there are so many things we will never know that goes on. so sorry it did not work out.

  3. sara says:

    Maybe Karl was upset that Zoe continues to support Alexander Wang (prob not but just wanted to bring up that Zoe is trash)?

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      She may not have known. She’s just a high profile name attached to him. The closer people are the easier it can be to hide part of themselves.

      Wang is trash.

    • Miumiiiu says:

      That’s very generous to the man! Im not following that story but I think it’s usually reversed. Women would like/ask our male partners to denounce/ avoid/ cut off etc men who are rapey /abusive/exploitive to whatever extent. Not knowing anything about this guy it’s statistically more likely that he did something typically male like quasi cheat or be violent to some extent than that he’s such a great ally and she’s not. If she herself is not a great ally then her male partner is unlikely to be better . Didn’t know she was standing by wang as the wang thing is like one day old

      • Evenstar says:

        That’s a very prejudiced thing to say and you should take the time to introspect and examine your biases. Women are just as likely to support and protect abusers like Wang, who targeted and is being exposed by primarily male models, FYI.

      • Honora says:

        Evenstar I agree that women may be just as likely to support abusers. But women not denouncing the men who until recently they thought were “one of the good ones” and loved as a family member /old friend/ peer… that’s like wayyyyyy down there on my list of harmful people. We women deal with enough shit whether we are attractive like Zoe or not as much. There are SOME women who loudly denounce rapists and they promptly get shit on on social media . Other women may be too tired to chirp in sometimes or not have processed that their loved one is sexually violent. Until she’s mentioned in court documents or accused of helping Zoe doesn’t have to say anything, AW’s violence has nothing to do with her. It just came out, has she even been seen with him? Women are mentioned way too often when men have done something wrong. Other than a mother who doesn’t protect her children, let’s leave the women in their lives out of it. Let’s see which men denounce him instead.

      • Evenstar says:

        @ Honora
        I was speaking more about MiuMiiu’s extremely generalizing and biased comments about men and women more than Kravitz specifically.

    • Kebbie says:

      Continues to support? Has she come out in support of him?

    • Gruey says:

      @Sara oh no what did she say! There are so many stories flooding out and they are all so similar. There are so many witnesses. I’m shocked that, unlike a Harvey Weinstein or Casey Affleck, stories hadn’t bubbled out into general knowledge more (at least, I never heard them). But it seems really really bad.

      • Ohlala says:

        It was an open secret in NYC and fashion circles for sooo long. Two years ago stories start to become public and it was hushed. The entire industry is soooo rotten. The stories are horrific and there was one very disturbing wherethe person was admitted to hospital. Also so many witnesses of his behaviour…
        And yes Zoe should speak up as all his famous pals and performative Me Too activists. Rotten rotten disgusting people. I hope from now on it is downfall of celebrity culture and influencers shite.

    • Myra says:

      Wait… what did Zoe do to be called trash? Did she know about the allegations? Has she supported him recently after the allegations came out? Why is she being singled out?

      • Ohlala says:

        She is not singled out, all of his celeb friends entourage was called out. What Zoe did? Rather what she did not! Kept silence and quiet after allegations came out.
        They all so trashy

  4. MegJ says:

    I’m surprised, she was on Dax Sheppard’s podcast and there was no hint then, not that there would be, but she didn’t avoid the topic of her marriage which is what most celebrities who are seperated secretly would do.

  5. Darla says:

    Sounds like a third party somewhere to me.

  6. tcbc says:

    She’s dealing with Cary Fukunaga.

    • ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

      Whoa. I mean…. cheating is terrible, I don’t approve of it, so separating all that out…. not many people can match the genetic lottery that Zoe hit with Lenny and Lisa. Can you imagine Zoe/Cary together? Wow.

    • sunny says:

      I like Cary- he is so hot and talented.

      As to the news being surprising, no one really knows what’s going on in a relationship aside from the people involved.

      I hope both Karl and Zoe both have support. Breakups are tough and during a pandemic I’d imagine it would be even harder.

    • Cali says:

      WHHHAAAATTTT??? That’s my dream guy😭…well not after messing with a married woman😒

    • Nikki* says:

      uh oh!

  7. Kebbie says:

    This is sad. I thought they were cute together. I’m guessing it’s not an amicable split but she keeps stuff locked down so it’ll be interesting to see if we hear anything beyond this.

    • Mia4s says:

      Eh. We probably won’t hear much. If we see one of them walking around with a new piece in a few weeks (I’m sensing her, given the details here), I think we will know, or at least strongly suspect!

  8. Bettyrose says:

    Zoe was raised by two of the most amazing men in existence. I’ve always wondered if other men could ever live up to that.

    • Mia4s says:

      You’re saying this about Jason Momoa? Un-ironically? Huh? Forgive me if I don’t consider men who visited and took money from a country after they savagely murdered a journalist and kept women activists in jail for demanding equal rights. Oh but he was just promoting their film industry?…for a nice fat check. “Most amazing men in existence”. LMAO! We need to raise our standards.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Okay I didn’t know about any of that but I meant in terms of them coming together to be a family. And not raise her in a pit of warring factions, male egos, and pettiness. Her mother deserves most of the credit for that but she still had some amazing male role models in her young life. And I’m guessing the events you’re referencing didn’t happen during Zoe’s upbringing but I’ll have to Google.

      • Mia4s says:

        If you had said she seems to have had a really great father and stepfather? Sure, OK. I haven’t heard anything to the contrary (loyal husbands to her mother not so much, but anyway…moving on). It’s the “ most amazing men in existence” comment that sent me spinning. We have to stop giving celebrities (any celebs) worship for doing the absolute bare minimum and their publicists hiding the rest.

      • DIA says:

        Give it a rest. Have you been to England, home of slavery? Made money in America, home of Trump. You hypocrits kill me. Nowhere is exempt from wrongdoing and evil.

      • Mette says:

        Mia- yes! Celebrities should be role models for nothing.

    • Evenstar says:

      Yeah, just because people are attractive and talented doesn’t automatically make them amazing people. Momoa hobnobbed and praised his time in Riyadh and Kravitz got into a fistfight after being asked to stop making noise during a stage performance. Let’s not make either one a saint no earthly man can live up to.

    • A says:

      They both cheated on Lisa and seem like kids that Lisa is mothering (especially Jason). Don’t know what’s supposed to be so great about them

      • Bettyrose says:

        I give up. I really did think they were a uniquely successful blended family (and yeah hot and rich too). Zoe should have only the highest standards for herself. Without knowing any details on her divorce, we can probably guess she does have a good sense of what she wants and needs from a marriage.

      • Kebbie says:

        Lol Betty rose sometimes you just can’t win. You’re allowed to have your favorites. I’m not sure why these people are taking it so personally that you like Lenny and Jason. It’s bizarre.

      • Isa says:

        Geez you all are very down on Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa. I never heard of Jason cheating. It always seemed like they were a really strong couple.

      • Darla says:

        People just assume Momoa cheats and a large part of that assumption is his older wife. When a famous sex symbol is married to an older woman he’s either a closeted gay (Jackman) or a cheater (Momoa). People can’t handle it. Now, I personally think they (actors and actresses) all cheat (though most likely have agreements), so I wouldn’t be shocked. But no I’ve never seen any proof nor has anyone else.

      • Case says:

        I think we should consider that maybe not everyone who writes favorably about a celebrity on here knows every little detail and bad rumor about them. I’ve never heard of Momoa cheating. Bettyrose is allowed to think Momoa and Kravitz are good guys. They have a reputation from an outsider’s perspective of being a lovely blended family.

        The pile-ons that take place here sometimes go too far. Her comment was made innocently and is understandable.

    • Green Desert says:

      Betty Rose – I see you and understand. You were being hyperbolic and people are mad. It happens to all of us here. 🙂 I agree they seem to be a very healthy blended family. I think that’s all you meant.

    • jules says:

      Whoa @betty. Sounds like some people woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I also thought they seemed like amazing fathers/step-fathers. I didn’t know any other details. Don’t take it personally like the people on here are taking your words personally. I wasn’t offended. And I’m sure that there were many more that weren’t. 🙂

    • Nikki* says:

      Bettyrose, I read all the comments against them, but Lenny Kravitz always epitomized cool, and Jason Mamoa is super attractive, and always seemed very supportive of his wife. It’s a Monday morning, and you were just writing your first reaction!! ANYWAY, just wanted to say sorry if you got dumped on, and this could definitely be a factor. And you sparked a very interesting dialogue. <3

  9. Peet33 says:

    They weren’t necessarily an ‘Instagram’ couple per se but she was always super duper lovey in the comments section about & to him which always surprised me as I honestly thought she was too cool for that kind of thing? Anyway…
    IDK where they both are now but for the start of lockdown they were both stuck together in London as she was in the middle of filming Batman. That’s got to be a huge pressure on a couple being stuck together for so long in a foreign country with no friends or support system around you. Also added to that I listed to that Dax Shepherd podcast with her & she did say she had huge anxiety & mental health issues that kicked in really severely around that time, it sounds as if maybe he spent a lot of time being her caregiver which of course is another added strain on the relationship. AND her career which is of course smoking hot, his was always a little ‘meh’. I can see all those things affecting the relationship more than the question of kids (which she said also on the podcast she wasn’t sure about, I mean both of them are only 32 so there’s still plenty of time). I have always liked her & hope it wasn’t cheating (on either end) but if she IS with Cary Fukunaga then I have had a crush on him for years, I’m impressed!

  10. Detnow359 says:

    She often came across as being more into him than him to her. Their body language always said a lot to me.

    • Kebbie says:

      I always thought it was the exact opposite, that he was super into her and she was more blasé.

  11. HeatherC says:

    2020 was so traumatic and I’m already wiping it from my mind. I honestly thought they JUST got married, like a few months ago in 2020. Besides that, no one truly knows what goes on within a marriage until the tell all interview or memoir, and then only 1 side

    • lucy2 says:

      I did too, I would have guessed just a few months.

      Whatever happened, hopefully it’s nothing horrible.

  12. Savannah says:

    I think this is just a case of marriage isn’t for everyone. That, and they both give off a heroine chic vibe, and not in a good way.

  13. sally says:

    I don’t know how to make it sound not catty, it’s not supposed to be, but aren’t they both into coke a bit? There were pics of them at a beach and parties floating around a few years back. I’ve been wondering how addicts deal with the whole pandemic and lockdown. I mean, the rich ones still have their dealers and all, but Joe Gilgun for example has talked about going sober during the first lockdown and I’d be surprised if he was the only one. I’m sure that affects relationships too.

  14. Onomo says:

    Their Insta comments to the other’s posts came across as strange to me. Comments like “baby I need you right now” and “babe I miss you so much please come home now” and on and on and on just made me think they were immature. If I am bad for judging so be it.

  15. Millennial says:

    I tend to think the pandemic is not a great time to make huge life decisions – it’s an emotionally stressful time which can lead to out of character decisions you may later regret (like cheating), but who knows, maybe it’s for the best.

  16. Mee says:

    I don’t know who upstream was saying Zoe was raised by 2 great men. Lenny is/was known as a massive philanderer. I remember that Brazilian model he was dating and demanded she remain faithful to him while he runs around. Then there’s Jason Momoa who is emotionally a child. Plenty of stories about him ripping pages out of Amber Heard’s books (she would read while suspended during Aquaman shoots), general childlike behavior towards women.

  17. lola says:

    Deuxmoi says she’s involved with an A list movie actor that has a talent other male actors don’t have. Any idea who that could be?

  18. LillyfromLilooet says:

    First, bummer about Lenny and Jason. I believe @mee, it makes a lot of sense, just sad—and a terrible example for young ‘uns.

    Second: we’ve all heard the story of couples who are unmarried and together for years, then have a reasonable engagement, then get married after much thought and planning…and then the marriage fails shortly after. You can groove on the companionship and easiness of a live-in-love but when you pledge to spend the rest of your life with someone in a committed partnership, with kids in the offing, that’s a reckoning.

    She had years to cheat on her man and did not; ergo, I’m of the mind this was more about the two of them, even if a third party is now on the scene.

  19. Mina_Esq says:

    There is only one reason to end things this quickly – one of the parties has found someone else and wants to pursue it. Everything else can be worked out if you’re still committed, even cheating (or, God forbid, Trump supporting). Well, not wanting to have kids is another one, but one would hope that they discussed that subject before they married.

  20. Andrea says:

    He gives me creepy vibes.

  21. april says:

    I would bet he cheated on her. When a wife files for divorce in a flurry, only two days before Christmas, it could only mean he cheated on her. If this is what happened, I feel sorry for her and would do the same.

    • SM says:

      I think so too. She refused to go into a new year with this marriage hanging over her. He sort of gives me those uncomfortable douch/narcissist vibes. Or as some raised the rumour that she has a new attraction, she too may have decided to start anew from the very beginning of the year. If there is truth to the Cary Fukunaga rumour, I could sort of see how she would just pull the plug on her marriage (that would be gross and unjustifiable but I could see how Cary may have that effect). But I read somewhere Cary is into really young girls?

      • likethedirection says:

        Last I heard he was with Kristine Froseth, who’s 25 now but they had been together for some time I think? Honestly it killed my crush on him!!

      • Kebbie says:

        Lol everyone on this post is side eying Lenny and Jason and drooling over Cary when Cary is the real creeper!

      • Nikki* says:

        Kebbiw, what’s the story with Cary? I’m very uninformed.

      • Kebbie says:

        Just that he dates and hangs around very young women. Like teenagers and early 20s and he’s in his 40s. Nothing illegal, to my knowledge, just icky.

  22. Al says:

    Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are in Zoe’s London quarantine bubble. (Taylor took photos of her for a recent magazine shoot). Wonder if her new boyfriend is connected to them.

  23. Katie says:

    isn’t the time just before Christmas the best for the least amount of coverage? my take is they called it quits a while back and filed now to avoid attention

  24. Queen Meghan's Hand says:

    Cue Robert Pattinson breaking up with Suki Waterhouse (is that her last name?) in the next weeks.

    Karl should have seen the end coming when she got cast as Catwoman to Pattinson’s Batman.

  25. april says:

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

    • AB says:

      A misogynist expression coined by a man.

      In real life, scorned men do everything from tantrums to murder. Women file for divorce and post a pointed picture on social media.

      • april says:

        I love the phrase and would own it. Who cares who came up with it. Why nitpick about everything someone says. Yes, men and women both have issues, what else is new. Let’s try to quit pitting the sexes against each other. I do appreciate your comments, however.

  26. Juju says:

    Can’t say I’m suprised. I’m actually suprised it even lasted that long.
