Jason Momoa & Lisa Bonet have split up after seventeen years together

(FILE) Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet Announce Split After Nearly 5 Years of Marriage

Sad news: one of the hottest, sexiest couples around has broken up. Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet are separating after nearly seventeen years together. There was confusion about when and how they got married, and for years, it was believed that they married in 2007 (after meeting in 2005). But technically, it appears as if their official wedding date was in October 2017. Still, they were together for more than sixteen years, and they have two kids together, Lola Iolani Momoa and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, both teenagers. Jason posted a statement reading:

“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,” the joint statement read. “And so we share our Family news that we are parting ways in marriage.”

“We share this 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 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 statement concluded, “Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life our children. Teaching our children what’s possible. Living the Prayer. May Love Prevail✨ J & L.”

Along with the announcement, Momoa shared several photos in his post, including one of a sunset sky, one of a person holding a baby bird and wearing a shirt that reads “May my soul shout love”, and another close-up of the hands holding the young bird.

Reps for Momoa and Bonet did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.

[From People]

It’s sad. The statement seems to indicate that they’ve had trouble in recent years because of the “squeeze and changes of these transformational times.” Meaning, another pandemic-related split? Or maybe something else, who knows. There are already people claiming that this or that blind item says that Momoa did this or that with another woman. I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough if there’s any third party involved. As for the prospect of a single Jason Momoa out on the streets… well, we better prepare ourselves.

    Momoa was filming here in Toronto throughout the pandemic and became a neighbourhood fixture in the west end, hitting up businesses and posing for selfies with fans. Word is he was quite open about approaching women for trysts. I figured maybe it was an open marriage, but perhaps not?

    • Millennial as says:

      There have been reports for years that he sees other women, so this does not surprise me at all.

      • myjobistoprincess says:

        I have not heard but I am so sad about this break up!

      • BothSidesNow says:

        I am sad to see these two split up as well. Though, I thought that they were perfect together as well. It’s a sad day that they couldn’t make it work.

    • Masoquist says:

      Jason has been stepping out on her since the beginning. She’s older and he’s into younger women 👀

    • Jezz says:

      But Lisa is perfect! And they seem perfect together. This is really sad.

      • STRIPE says:

        Having lived in Los Angeles for so long, at this point I just assume all famous and/or rich men cheat and am surprised when they don’t.

      • superashes says:

        Yeah, when I read the caption I was like “oh, she must have found another man”, it didn’t even dawn on me that he would cheat on her.

    • Chaine says:

      Not shocking TBH. As a couple, they’ve always given me the same vibe as Demi Moore-Ashton Kutcher did. That was another older woman-younger man marriage where the guy trumpeted landing his childhood crush whilst behind the facade he was hooking up with randoms from clubs while Demi was away working.

    • LaraK says:

      I thin’k the idea of open marriage goes with their bohemian vibe, but who knows? Sometimes it’s hard to see past image.
      In any event, all the best to them, and I’m glad they are prioritizing their children.

    • Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

      Really? For some reason I don’t believe that. If he had been so open about approaching women and sleeping with them, someone SOMEONE would brag and it would get out. Then again…
      I remember years ago when Lainey Gossip reported from an industry party seeing Zoe kiss her step-father on the lips. After some hours the post was removed that same day. Maybe his and Bonet’s PR team are rock-solid.

      • minx says:

        I believe it.

      • Kviby says:

        Very Interesting about the story being deleted!! Also, kinda gross story. Maybe it was false and she had bad info. If it’s true, yikes poor lisa

      • Queen Meghan's Hand says:

        @Kviby
        Lainey and a colleague attended the party. She used to do industry party play-by-play sometimes before she got on Canada’s version of E!. She saw them hanging out and so played close attention because she’s a big fan of Zoe and her mother. I forget if Lainey’s shock was from only her prudence and judgement or that AND Jason being uncomfortable. I want to say the kiss was NOT welcomed by him, like he was surprised. Let me stop before the Kravitz-Momoa-Bonet team take me out. I would like to live to see life post-pandemy.

      • Kviby says:

        Thank you. I know lainey used to write and dish in ways she currrntly doesn’t but I missed that one. Probably because it got taken down. How shocking! No wonder you remember it well as it’s pretty weird. I do remember she used to call Zoe exquisite a lot so it doesn’t surprise me that she caught some random 1 second display of affection

    • ABC says:

      There have been so many blind items about him cheating and her having a drinking problem

      • Hmmm says:

        lol @ people saying they have a rock solid Pr team. Part of their issues is $$$$ they don’t have a lot of it and can’t afford good Pr. He might get there but no

      • Jezz says:

        I’d love to get sloshed with Lisa Bonet and read tarot cards or something!

      • notasugarhere says:

        Didn’t he admit they were financially broke before he got Aquaman?

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I thought it was Game of Thrones but could be wrong???? I wonder what happened to Lisa Bonet’s money as she never seemed like a big spender to me.

      • notasugarhere says:

        He admitted they were broke after Game of Thrones, because after GoT he wasn’t getting any work.

        ‘I mean, we were starving after Game of Thrones,’ he told the magazine. ‘I couldn’t get work. It’s very challenging when you have babies and you’re completely in debt.’

      • notasugarhere says:

        BayTampaBay, thinking more on it. Maybe during the GoT years, they spent more than they should on credit. Hollywood-size bills coming due when you no longer have a Hollywood salary would be a big hit to take.

      • Lucille says:

        @BayTampaBay I kind of doubt Lisa was really well off. Her acting career was almost non-existent except for the Cosby Show. She wasn’t even on that show for too long. Without the proper contracts she might’ve not gotten royalties from it and not made much of it.

      • RoyalAssassin says:

        @Lucille, you nailed it: she was a child, it was the eighties, and you can bet her contract wouldn’t have made her multi-millions rich. I also wonder whether she was ever hit by Bill Cosby’s nastiness—you never know. She’s always been really odd, and never really done anything since that show.

    • JillyBeann says:

      Same stories from trusted sources when he filmed in my hometown also.. it was understood it was an open relationship… he was/is adored by everyone he met

    • FF says:

      When will people learn? A woman could be a literal goddess come down from heaven and perfection personified, hand-crafted by Budfha and Jesus Christ. A man will still cheat because the problem isn’t with the woman, it’s with the man (same is true for anyone of any gender cheating).

  2. Rapunzel says:

    Momoa being single will be interesting. Did he cheat? Eh…considering they probably spent a lot of time apart on separate projects before the pandemic, I can see being more together could cause problems.

    Someone who knows better…does Momoa have a cheating history?

    ETA: just read K’s post…interesting.

    Anyway, it’s gonna be interesting to see who he dates next. But also…who will Lisa date next. Lenny, Jason…how hot will her next man be?

    • Jezz says:

      Angelina! Denise should go from Kravitz to Aquaman to Jolie!!!!!!!!

    • Lucille says:

      Somewhere I read speculations he might’ve gotten someone pregnant in Canada while filming there.

    • JC says:

      I think a very simple way of looking at this is one that people don’t like to touch on….menopause. Women hit a certain age and they begin to care more about what they genuinely want and who they are in life. Sex becomes a thing that isn’t FOR everyone! I mean, maybe between the two of them they would have realized the 12 year age gap is really beginning to show its cracks. My husband is 48 and still has the libido he’s always had, he’s had to adjust to mine as I am in peri menopause. Its just what it is…we still love each other, we still are intimate, just not as often as his libido would like but more as often as my libido can manage. Women getting older, it sucks, if a man was closer in age, he may be able to empathize more (like my husband who is 2 years older than me), but I’ve seen in the case of my brother and his wife (she is older, about the same age as me) my brother is younger than her and the libido disparity as they have aged has been hell for my brother.

      Its just…sometimes you can love each other deeply, even find each other deeply attractive…but that spark can get snuffed out and you can be realistic about flogging a dead horse and just part ways as friends. 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, sex isn’t everything, but sometimes its the language of intimacy that is part of a great communicative relationship.

      • BlackScorpio says:

        I’m glad you posted this as I was thinking the same thing too. Peri menopause and menopause could totally be a factor. I was surprised too when the hormone levels changed and sex is just not one of the Top 5 priorities now especially if taking care of kids still.

  3. Scorpion says:

    Don’t mind me, I’m off to sneak into his DMs 😉

  4. mia girl says:

    Hmmmm… something is fishy with Aquaman

  5. Cessily says:

    This makes me sad.. I really loved their love story 💔, it was the best part of both of them imo.

    • TeamMeg says:

      Same. Every time I dream about Jason, we decide to just be friends because he loves and is loyal to Lisa, and even though it hurts, I always agree and understand, because I love her, too, and I love them together. In my dreams. True confessions here, lol.

      • Nope says:

        My absolute favorite celebrity men are the ones in longtime happy marriages. They seem so much more like someone I would trust as a friend or as a partner (when we bond over being tragically widowed obvi).

        When they bail it kills it a little.

  6. JustMe says:

    Jason go get your khaleesi…
    But seriously it sucks when people break up. He just seems so much more outgoing than she does. But ya they were hot together.

    • Sophie says:

      I find this quite depressing. They were one of the few couples where I thought it would not end in the cliché, younger man leaves older (or even of same age) woman as soon as she hits a certain age, especially if he is now more famous than her. See also Ashton K, James McAvoy, Martin Freeman. Now my only couple left is Hugh Jackman and his wife.

      • Seti says:

        @Sophie

        Hugh & his wife = lavender marriage. They’ll stay together forever imo, but not bc of romantic/sexual love. Unless Hugh later in life decides to open the 🚪

      • notasugarhere says:

        Seti, the *alleged* talk is of a Domme-Submissive relationship, where they have a loving sexual relationship AND she selects outside play partners of any gender.

      • Penguin says:

        Oh my god enough with this. If Hugh Jackman was gay in this day and age he would be so. This kind of speculation is just homophobic and toxic.

      • stagaroni says:

        @Seti,
        Seriously? Is it because he sings and dances? Is it because he is married to an older woman? He seems very secure and I doubt he would care what people thought if he WERE gay. Why perpetuate these rumors?

      • notasugarhere says:

        Penguin, given the rampant hate in the world, I’m not sure about that. Regardless, it not just homophobic but sexist and ageist. Furness was a huge catch for him when they met during the filming of Corelli.

      • apollocat says:

        Lol, Hugh jackman has serious mommy issues. His mother abandoned him when he was young. That is why he is holding on to her. A most older woman, young men couple the main reason men is in that relationship is because either he wants to learn do’s and don’t form a woman or serious mommy issue.

        I always find this couple weird because Jason said when he was 8 he saw Lisa and said he wants her. This is creepy as a french president and gross teacher wife.

        We only talk about women’s daddy issues but we never talk about men’s mommy issues.

      • Summergirl says:

        @Penguin I have no opinion on Hugh Jackman’s marriage or his sexuality, but I think it’s hugely naive to think that major Hollywood stars can come out of the closet without serious consequences to their careers. I can’t think of one MAJOR Hollywood movie star who is openly gay and plays straight men on-screen. (Kristen Stewart is a very rare case, and she’s a woman.) Regressive and on the wrong side of history though it may be, the world is still very homophobic.

      • Jaded says:

        @Seti – there’s video footage of Hugh Jackman meeting Deborra-Lee for the first time on a TV talk show she was hosting and he’s mesmerized by her. The connection was instantaneous. After they married she, sadly, had several miscarriages in a row so they adopted their 2 kids. To jump to the conclusion that it’s a “lavender marriage”, which is a pretty insulting expression, is wrong.

      • J says:

        Martin Freeman’s ex is a few years younger than him. But I’ll throw another one out there to take his place: Ewan McGregor

      • Anners says:

        Summergirl- granted there aren’t that many, but Queen Latifah, Lee Pace and Luke Evans come to mind as out actors who play straight. Although I’ll grant that Lee Pace had a lot of people guessing for a long time. That said, they’re the only two I can think of off the top of my head, so I can understand why people don’t want to come out.

      • angie says:

        @Anners and @Summergirl,
        Not sure if Neal Caffrey and Neil Patrick Harris count as major but they both play straight characters as well.

      • Yep says:

        I agree with Seti about Hugh. I do believe John Palermo was more than a business partner. I don’t blame Hugh; it’s become much easier for male leads (Richard Madden for example) to be open about their sexuality in the last five years but even 10 years ago it would have been undoable.

  7. Jay says:

    I’m guessing the cell service in the Momoa-Bonet neighborhood is temporarily down right now due to the sheer volume of people shooting their shot in their respective DMs, lol.

  8. RoyalBlue says:

    Khal Drogo is on the market? I predict new girlfriend alert within a few months.

  9. Seraphina says:

    Damn what sad news. Hot couple indeed. TBH, I hope they are able to maintain their privacy and dignity. I don’t care why they split, life happens. There are two sides to every story. Hell being trapped in house with Mr. Seraphina has me itching to get out and about despite the craziness of the variant.
    But a single Jason is the only bright side (a girl can dream).

  10. KFG says:

    I bet she ended it. Maybe she wants to try again with Lenny… they’re still very close and who knows, maybe she wants a quiet life on a farm in Brazil.

    • Matti says:

      If she ended it, it was bc she couldn’t handle him being with other women anymore. As for Kravitz’s – Lenny, like Jason, really only interested in under 30 crowd. so getting back with Lenny likely isn’t an option for her. She’s beautiful but she isn’t the age Lenny or Jason actively pursue. Jason had a crush on her when she was in her 20s, for example. A nonfamous man doesn’t have the same options these guys have – but famous guys have tons of options. They’ll choose the best/hottest they can want/get.

      • Gm says:

        Agreed, money, fame, opportunities, lifestyle. Some famous guys can be loyal but for most guys they fall for the temptation.

      • KFG says:

        Umm that doesn’t ring true. Momoa pursued her, not the other way around. Also, lenny hasn’t dated anyone seriously since his divorce. Just because other famous guys chase young women doesn’t mean they all do. Let’s see, Clooney was always thought to only date young blondes and he marries a dark haired, older, attorney. Lenny dates mila Jovovich when he was in his 30s and she was in her late 20s. He dated a couple of youngish women, but you don’t see him with some 20 year old. And the kiss with Zoe story upset all of them bc ppl made a parental kiss sexual, when it wasn’t.

      • Esse says:

        @KFG

        Milla never dated Lenny Kravitz. She was in his music video and at the time was with Luc Besson. She also was not in her late 20s when she starred in the video with Lenny or even near after….she didn’t even turn 30 until 2005! Not sure what you’ve read or heard or what…..

        Also MANY ppl have witnessed Momoa stepping out. And yes, with hot young women. When you are famous and goodlooking, your pool of potential partners widens like no one else’s so it’s not surprising he gave her up. A normal guy would too if they were in Momoa’s situation.

        Sorry.

      • Peppes says:

        Also doesn’t ring through because bonet left Kravitz ( he was the one who wanted to get back together) why would she be pining for him like 30 years later when he clearly just lives the same lifestyle with no commitments.
        And yes momoa perused her not the other way around. And prior to his fame they were very low key. She also had a low key boyfriend before him. Like she left Hollywood and raised Zoe away from that world..
        She just comes across as very into nature and living away from the city . There was an interview she did with Marisa Tomei recently and it was all about nature and repurposing. She isn’t into Hollywood because she had fame early and decided it wasn’t the lifestyle for her. Momoa on the other hand was in his late 30s when he started getting proper famous. It’s very possible he cheated considering how much they were apart in recent years but on the other hand I could also imagine it being they want to life really different lives. He seems way more enamoured of Hollywood.

      • H says:

        @KFG, Lenny dated Vanessa Paradis before she hooked up with Johnny Depp. He produced her album. (Great album by the way, terrific music.)

        If I had to pick between Jason and Lenny, I’d definitely go with Lenny. However, lucky Lisa has had them both.

      • ThatsNotOkay says:

        Um… Lenny Kravitz dated Nicole Kidman quite seriously. So much so, they got engaged. She thought they were going to get married and he broke her heart!

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @KFG – Did not Lenny date Niccole Kidman for quite awhile after her divorce from Tom Cruise?

      • Jaded says:

        @Matti – Lenny was engaged to Nicole Kidman before she met Keith Urban when was in her later thirties. She wasn’t some young thing.

    • Y’all!!!! It’s the VACCINES! Lisa is VERY anti-vaxx and there is no way momoa could work unvaxxed (And he may not agree with her stance). I bet there is also behind the scenes stuff about getting the kids vaccinated and that is what precipitated this. I’m surprised this is not talked about. (and read between the lines of the statement)

  11. original_kellybean says:

    Aww, this one makes me sad. I love that he had a childhood crush on her and then ended up meeting and marrying her. All the best to both of them.

  12. Jasper says:

    Well damn. I really liked the two of them together. The whole family seemed to gel so well together. I hope they can remain friends and the blended family continues.

  13. Barbie1 says:

    This is sad. I liked them together. I dread to hear about how the “revolution” has changed the dynamics of their marriage.

  14. Becks1 says:

    Wow, I did not realize they were together that long. It sounds like a relatively peaceful split so hopefully they are able to remain friends (if that’s what they want.)

  15. Susanna says:

    Maybe we can have Khal Drogo and Khaleesi together in the real life now

  16. Ainsley says:

    I think I may be the sole woman who does not find him attractive. Maybe I’m broken lol

    • Twin falls says:

      I don’t find him attractive personally but I can see why other people do and I thought as a couple they fit. Way better than Zoe and what’s his name, who I also do not find attractive in the least. I think Lisa Bonet is one of the most beautiful people on the planet. I wish them both happiness and an amicable co-parenting relationship.

    • Eve says:

      @Ainsley:

      No, you’re not. I don’t find him attractive in the slightest.
      🥂

      • Normades says:

        Gonna sit down next to y’all. I don’t like beefy guys and the overly bohemian thing is a turn off too.
        I get it if other people are into it though.

    • jk says:

      Whenever I look at him I think he needs a bath. No thanks.

    • Soni says:

      Nope, don’t find him attractive at all. He seems extremely dim witted.

      • Find him hot but then I saw him on the Graham Norton Show and he did not come across as the sharpest tool in the box.
        He just seemed a bit silly. So while I still think he is hot looking … agree too that he does seem a bit unkempt.
        I veer from beefy to Eddie Redmayne 😂

    • Summergirl says:

      @Ainsley, me too!

    • Bettyrose says:

      I’m not into him either. I loved his relationship with Khaleesi … like if you’re sold into sex slavery hey Khal Drogo is as good as it gets. But physically he’s too macho looking for my tastes. Now, Lenny Kravitz … my gawd. That man just keeps getting hotter.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      No, he does nothing for me either.

    • Sudie says:

      No, you’re definitely not! And I find it ironic that many posters are okay with his alleged cheating. If it were someone they didn’t find “hot” they would be crucifying him.

    • elle says:

      Me, either. He looks like a cartoon villain to me. But I find her exquisite. She hasn’t looked happy in photos for quite a while now.

    • MissTery says:

      Hi guys, can I just add my two cents? I also don’t find him attractive in the way that he makes my knees go wobbly but he’s tall and physically strong, which I usually love in a man.

      What turned me off was meeting him in person once about 2 1/2 years ago at a fan event. He’s super duper extra nice but an extremely restless character. It was like he couldn’t keep still at all, constantly shifting his body and moving his hands through his hair. Also, the way he moved seemed at odds with his manly appearance, I found it almost girlish somehow. All of that is fine, of course, but made me realise I could never be his Khaleesi, lol

  17. Esmerelda says:

    A very very verbose statement – handsome as he is, he must love the sound of his own voice. But all in all it looks like an amicable split, I’m curious to see who she dates next.

    • ABC says:

      Actually it sounds more like Lisa wrote the statement, but as she isn’t on social media he is the one who posted it

    • Summergirl says:

      And whoever wrote that statement doesn’t know how to use capital letters properly!

      • BeanieBean says:

        I was thinking the person was severely grammar-challenged. And punctuation-challenged. And yes, capital letters-challenged.

      • TeamMeg says:

        Poetic license, folks. I thought it was a lovely and respectful statement, in keeping with their personalities and vibe. The pics were a beautiful touch. Splits are always sad, even when it’s mutual and for the best. Especially for the kids. Love and warm wishes to this iconic family as they transition into their new paradigm.

    • Philly says:

      Ugh, the statement was Goopy and pretentious whoever wrote it.

  18. L84Tea says:

    That’s a bummer. But nice to see they’re splitting amicably.

  19. tw says:

    It sounds like they’ve been mostly apart for a few years, and to stop the cheating rumors, they are just letting people know they are both free to date other people.

    • lucy2 says:

      It definitely had a “you’re going to see us with other people, so don’t yell, we’re split up” vibe.

      I never followed him that closely, but I did always think they seemed very into each other and happy. His career has really taken off in recent years though, so that probably didn’t help, him off working so much.

  20. atorontogal says:

    I’m wondering if his meteoric rise to fame in the last few years has anything to do with it? He seemingly craves the adoration/attention and she seems to shun it. I really liked him, but reading that he had a wondering peen really has me bummed out. Hope for the kids sake, they can remain amicable.

    • Bettyrose says:

      That always changes the relationship. If the woman shoots to fame, seems like it’s hard for the man suddenly be in her shadow. If the man shoots to fame … he’s suddenly realizing his adolescent fantasies of women craving him. (Hmmm … in both scenarios it’s the male ego that can’t handle the change.)

  21. tempest prognosticator says:

    I wonder who her next absolutely gorgeous man (or woman) will be!

  22. TheOriginalMia says:

    Wouldn’t be surprised if there was cheating. They got together when he was dating and engaged to another actress. They became official the week before his wedding because Lisa was pregnant. Hope they are all fine and able to have an amicable divorce like hers with Lenny.

    Can’t believe it’s been 15 years & the kids are now teenagers.

  23. Gm says:

    He is at the point now of making a lot of money, she is probably fine but still I hope financially after 16 years together. You know what mean….

    It’s sad, but they spent loads of time apart once his star began to rise with Aquaman and everything. Between his chance in success and then suddenly being forced together 24/7 after spending their relationship more long-distance than shared, I can see how they’d realize they weren’t on the same page anymore.

    On top of it, seventeen years for a Leo and Scorpio is already surprising.

    I do wonder how long it’ll be before people start pushing for Drogo and Dany to get together in real life, especially if she’s currently single.

  25. Mia4s says:

    That was a very poetic way to see we are sick of the sight of each other! 😂

    Anyway, if there’s drama, we will know soon enough. There’s been a few cases of these couples who are together forever, then they get married and only last a few more years. I often wonder if the marriage is actually an attempt to help a relationship that’s already struggling. Terrible idea, LOL! But it does make some sense.

    • Marietta2381 says:

      Yeah, I love them both, but he’s never home, so it’s hard to believe they would have made it work.

      I had a friend that was with his gf for 10 years and then they decided to get married. 6 months later, they divorced (and never talked again!) I have countless other stories like that, too. So it definitely might have played a factor.

  26. Abby says:

    Aw this makes me sad.

  27. girl_ninja says:

    My sister and I were talking about this and she threw out the idea of “What if Lisa and Lenny get back together?” Wouldn’t that be something?

  28. Pinkosaurus says:

    She has the most excellent taste in sexy men between him and Lenny Kravitz. I look forward to seeing who she ends up with next (if anyone – choosing to be solo is also an excellent choice).

  29. Bikny says:

    Nooooo! I loved those two together. They were the perfect boho couple. Lisa deserves someone not a cheater! I’ve been a fan of Lisa since the Cosby show.

  30. Case says:

    This news is totally unsurprising to me. For as much as he seemed to adore Lisa, I also heard a lot of rumors of him cheating. They also seem like opposites in a way that would work for a bit but become exhausting in the long run.

    I’m sure they will both find very attractive new partners, lol, and they seem grounded enough where they will keep their kids’ stability a priority.

  31. Serena says:

    Kinda heartbreaking.

  32. Katherine says:

    He always gave me single man vibes but I’m sad they are done. I shouldn’t be, they obviously would’ve stayed together if they were happy together, so good for them. Hope they both can move on peacefully and without drama. And yeah, it’s gonna be exciting to see whom he dates, I hope it’s fun in a good way and not in a depressing, sleazy or trashy way. Also, I like him, but count me out on the whole single Momoa on the streets hunting game, it’s a pass for me, he’s kinda threateningly large or smth, can’t explain.

  33. manta says:

    So the prescient minds who made the list of couples more likely to divorce in 2022 didn’t see that one coming.

  34. Caroline says:

    He’s always been a manbaby. The way Jason talked about Lisa was always so callow and so shallow. Here’s to Lisa finding a true partner, and the love and recognition she so deserves.

  35. Kaye says:

    I haven’t really followed them, but in most pictures she always seemed high/drunk/bored to me. She rarely looks directly at the camera.

  36. CityGirl says:

    I heard he recently had or is about to have a child outside of his marriage.

  37. Peppes says:

    A lot of the theories here seems to come from people reading some random blind item and acting like it’s facts. .
    First of all momoa does not “only like women under 30 or if he does this is recent development as he’s known as someone who dated older women. He literally started dating bonet when she was closing in on 40. His girlfriend prior to bonet was also older than him.
    Also bonet left Kravitz when Zoe was a baby because he was cheating on tour ( which he wrote extensively about on one of his albums) why on earth would she all of a sudden be in an open marriage? If momoa was cheating I put more money on her saying enough is enough. He strikes me as very immature for his age and a manbaby I bet she had to mother him.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      “which he wrote extensively about on one of his albums”

      Lenny also wrote about it in his book and discussed it with Terri Gross of NPR’s “Fresh Air” when he was a guest on the show.

    • Emma says:

      Yeah like rumors or anecdotes are not facts. In this day and age, if a fairly big star like Momoa was cheating/open, there would 100% be articles about it. But you don’t see even one.

      It’s also disgusting to me that people are saying he wouldn’t be attracted to an older women. She’s been over 10 years older than him their entire 16-year relationship. She is beautiful.

      • neon says:

        ‘In this day and age, if a fairly big star like Momoa was cheating/open, there would 100% be articles about it. But you don’t see even one‘

        Oh Emma, girl…..you can’t be serious with this part 🗿

  38. candy says:

    I read a lot of blinds that they were open (or he was) and he’s said a lot of garbage things over the years. But yeah, he’s supremely hot so I’m not over here saying I wouldn’t.

  39. dea says:

    This guy is dumb, in love with himself and always looks like he stinks. I honestly don’t get the obsession with him. I hope she gets some serious dough after having to put up with his cheating ass and growing ego. Get that money, bb gurl!

  40. paddingtonjr says:

    So sad to hear this! I’ve been a fan of Lisa since A Different World and liked Jason by association. They seemed to have a solid, if unconventional, relationship. I wish them and their children the best.

  41. H says:

    It doesn’t surprise me about the rumors about Jason maybe getting with another woman as that’s how he and Bonet got together.

    I was a big Stargate Atlantis fan and Jason was engaged to an Australian actress at the time. They had their wedding planned and everything. Australian access found out that Jason and Lisa were hooking up on the side and I believe quite soon after that Lisa was pregnant. The engagement was called off, and then Jason and Lisa were together.

    Although they seem quite happy for many years, I still remember that they’re both cheaters.

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      I was a big SA fan too, and this was all over the message boards. What they did really messed up his former fiancee. I remember reading an article about her and how his family was blasé about the cheating and pregnancy, but she was devastated. It took her years to get over the betrayal, but she did. I hope she’s doing well.

      • H says:

        @TheOriginalMia, Yes, I remember Jason had a website and his mother was always on the forums. She was very excited for the wedding to the Australian actress, but then it was a total switch and it was Lisa, Lisa, Lisa and the baby.

        I’ve been to a couple of SGA conventions and met Jason before his big rise to fame. He’s always been hungover and stinking of alcohol. At one in New Jersey, him and Joe Flanagan were so hungover, I thought they might need medical help. The only thing I do like is that Flanagan and him seem to still be friends. I mean Jason lived in Joe’s basement for awhile when they were filming Stargate Atlantis. So, Jason should help his former cast mate out when Joe’s acting roles have dried up.

        So, while I like Jason as Aquaman, as a person? Everybody else can have him.

      • TheOriginalMia says:

        Yes, I met him at DragonCon. Also, got a first person POV from a PA about his behavior. Large, drunk man child. Doesn’t seem like much has changed over the years except he’s a bigger star.

    • Ange says:

      I didn’t realise the Aussie actress was Stevie from McLeod’s Daughters, wow. Jason obviously has a type though as she’s also a big ole hippie lol.

  42. tealily says:

    If any other couple had put that statement out, I would roll my eyes so hard. But these two? Yeah, seems right. Wish them the best.

  43. Ennie says:

    Real love is dead. Well they seem to get along very well still (sniff)

  44. LRobb says:

    I like them as a couple and family, so I hope this split still allows their family to be close. I don’t have any instinct about whether they’ve had an open marriage, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

    I am enjoying some of the takes, like who gets custody of the hotness? Very funny, and a good question. Of the two heatsources, Lisa is the one to watch. That woman has REACH! I am fond of Jason and Lenny. Wonder if they both get approval of the next brother-in-love.

    Go Lisa.

  45. washappy21 says:

    This news made me sad.
    I think a big factor besides the cheating rumors is that his star has blown up into the stratosphere and I think she was always content to just be married to a semi-famous hubby, do the odd red carpet and raise their kids together. He’s never around and I believe they’ve likely grown apart. That is my take absent the cheating rumours because so far no one has come forward to say they hooked up with him and I’d believe in a second someone would.

  46. lena horne says:

    Always talk about women being older and Hollywood. Lots of comments here point to the same thing. With Lisa being older and he is younger. Doesnt play well.

  47. Wilma says:

    Lisa Bonet is on record as being anti-vaccine. Maybe it literally was the epidemic that pushed them apart.

    • Philly says:

      The statement does allude to the challenges of the pandemic playing a part so wouldn’t surprise me.

      I know of a family where the pro-vax father arranged to get himself and his teens vaccinated without the anti vax mother’s knowledge or consent – they’ve since split up.

  48. Jill says:

    I’ve always thought Jason looked cute but exhausting, and not in a good way. More like a dog that doesn’t get enough outdoor time and destroys the couch. Like messing with Amber Heard’s books on the set of Aquaman because she was ignoring him. Touch my books and die, puppy man.

    • elle says:

      Totally… all while giving the “you won’t murder me, because I’m so cute!” face.

    • Anj says:

      Thank you for this comment. All of it. Made my day!

    • tealily says:

      Puppy man! Lol I see it!

    • Sandii says:

      Ha…. this story also stuck with me. NOT cute…. I do not like the #realmenbabies vibe.

      • Deering24 says:

        Wow , he ripped the pages out of her books!!! Oh man–his ass woulda been dead today if he pulled that on me…🤬🤬 And I really liked him.

    • Turtledove says:

      Jill, this comment is gold.

      I am not a superfan, but had certainly enjoyed his work. Loved the idea of him and Lisa etc. So, an average-sized fan, I guess. But when I heard about Amber Heard’s books I was SO annoyed.

      Everything about that bothered me. I hated the thought of it happening to me, like you said, don’t mess with my books. But also, it was such red flag. How much attention does one guy NEED? He has Lisa Bonet AND a million fans, just let Amber read her damn book!

  49. L4Frimaire says:

    They seemed like such a beautiful and solid couple and genuinely sad for them. They seemed to have a great blended family. I didn’t know they had kids and don’t think I’ve ever seen their kids. Hope it works out for the both of them. I used to have such a girl crush on Denise Huxtable.

  50. Chanteloup says:

    Well I didn’t see this coming. I literally screamed ARE YOU $^*%ing KIDDING ME at my screen when I saw this. lol There goes my fantasy that they had everything I want, I enjoyed the delusion.

  51. AA says:

    I used to loooove Lisa antil she started coming out with weird anti-vax BS years ago….
    I wonder what her current views are, given the pandemic…

    • Lucille says:

      She seems to be one of those holistic, natural, no gluten, “I grow my own food” type of people. Which is funny given the amount of work she had on her face.

  52. Jaded says:

    I read an interview with him a few years ago and he basically stated (I’m paraphrasing) that he couldn’t understand how Lisa could still be with him because he was like an uncontrollable kid, all over the place. One minute throwing himself into a new project like a madman, the next into something else utterly crazy. I have a feeling she just got sick of the crazy and possibly the side-pieces.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I’ve read things like that about him too. He’s the kind of friend you’re lucky to survive a night out with, given his partying and devil-may-care safety attitude.

      She seems much more quiet, private, Zen, just wants to raise the kids and walk the pet donkeys.

  53. Jess says:

    The way he worded things almost makes it seem like he’s about to be seen with another woman, “as we go about our lives with dignity and honesty”, hmm mmm, so he can slang that dick around probably.

    • Gm says:

      I second this.

      • Arizona says:

        I dont think he wrote that. It sounds like Lisa. Check out her recent interview with best friend Marisa Tomei. She worded things pretty much the same away, talks a lot about revolution and learning to authentically be myself.

  54. Imara219 says:

    Jason is fine on film but in real life seems like a good troop man child. His sexual energy seems only channeled through film roles. So even though I can acknowledge he’s good-looking I only enjoy watching him on screen. He isn’t a Morris Chestnut oozing fineness or Johnathan Majors swagness. I also wondered how much of Jason’s persona was authentic and how much was driven by his side kick desire to get with Lisa Bonet.

  55. Trish says:

    Honestly he seems annoying on instagram. He’s always “on” like a big drunk kid. A classic Leo. It’s endearing for sure, but maybe taxing for someone like Lisa who’s more chill. She might be wanting to find someone more in tune with her vibe going into the future. You know, the Covid has made us all think about time and how precious it is. People really don’t want to continue with someone if it’s not making them happy for the sake of the kids or whatever.
    Btw, nothing against, Leos, I love them, they are generous and loving, I’m just saying that he is a young overgrown child in a lot of ways and I just don’t think they vibe anymore.

  56. cassandra says:

    17 years is a total achievement outside of Hollywood. Inside of Hollywood it’s like a miracle.

    I totally would, for a weekend or two.

  57. LadySwampwitchGivsneaufux says:

    He was cheating in Canada and got someone preggers.

  58. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Sad. But quite honestly they had a good run by celebrity standards.

  59. Margo says:

    In the world they inhabit, there are not a lot of examples of long-term relationships. They certainly made it a lot longer than most. It’s sad because they have a history together that is precious. Neither will have that history with anyone else and I wonder, as they get older, will they see that the difficult struggles and the heights of fame were just blips. It’s the middle space in life that endures and having a shared history becomes sacred. I wish them well…and would not be surprised if they find each other again sometime down the road.

  60. bears says:

    Oh my, another performative split. That’s a whole lot of words just to say “we want to have sex with other people.”

  61. ARHUS says:

    Well some people just grow apart too. Sad day.

  62. Likeyoucare says:

    Lisa is the kind of woman who is very confident in herself and will take no shit from others. You go girl.

  63. Arizona says:

    How come everyone just assumes hes the one who broke up with her?
    She hasn’t been to a premiere of his in years and honestly didn’t look that happy in recent photos with him. I suspect they been separated for awhile and maybe one or both is now moving on with someone else so that’s why they made it public.
    And 99% certain he didn’t write this statement. He can’t sit still long enough to read a book let alone string together this statement. This is all Lisa. Check out her recent interview with Marisa Tomei, some of the stuff she says is basically paraphrased in this statement.

    • april says:

      Thanks for the link. Lisa and Marisa are very deep people and their lifestyles are unbelievably healthy. I do think that Lisa has always come across as being superconfident and I also think she threw out Jason.
