Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet are splitting up.
Momoa, 42, revealed their separation in a joint statement on his Instagram this past Wednesday. Bonet, 54, does not have social media.
“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 statement continued. “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.”
Momoa shared a series of 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.
The two began dating in 2005 after being introduced by mutual friends at a jazz club.
While on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Momoa spoke candidly about his first date with Bonet, saying, “We just happened to be in the right place at the right time.”
“I actually had dreaded my hair for her. I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks. I literally turned around and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend and I [pretended to scream]. I had f—ing fireworks going off inside, man,” he said at the time. “I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel.”
The two decided to share a meal at Cafe 101, where Momoa recalled how they hit it off.
“We sat down, she ordered a Guinness, and that was it,” he added. “I beyond love Guinness. We had Guinness and grits, and the rest is history.”
And in July of 2007, the couple had their first child, Lola, and welcomed their second child, Nakoa-Wolf, in December 2008. Bonet is also mom to Zoë Kravitz, 33, whom she shares with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.
And while it was previously believed that Momoa and Bonet married in November 2007, the couple were wed in October 2017.
