Actors Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet announced that they have ended their 16-year relationship. “We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times…A revolution is unfolding and our family is of no exception,” the couple said in a statement. They had started dating in 2005 and married in late 2017. They have a son and daughter together.
A joint statement posted on the “Aquaman” star’s Instagram page Wednesday that he and his wife were parting ways.
“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding (tilde)and our family is of no exception,” the post said, adding that they were announcing the split so “as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty.”
Lisa recalled their instant chemistry, saying, “I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day that we met.” She shared, “In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do. He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style.”
Momoa, 42, and Bonet, 54, met and started dating in 2005 and officially married in late 2017. They have a son and daughter together.
Bonet, who rose to fame playing one of Bill Cosby’s daughters on “The Cosby Show” and its spinoff, “A Different World,” was previously married to rocker Lenny Kravitz.
