Jason Momoa, Lisa Bonet Announce Their Split
“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding—and our family is no exception. 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 loved. We free each other to be who we are learning to become… Teaching our children what’s possible—Living the prayer. May love prevails,” they said in their statement.
Jason Momoa’s Busy Schedule Affected His Marriage
An unnamed source claimed that Momoa and Bonet started dating more than 16 years ago when he wasn’t such a big name in Hollywood. But following the success of Aquaman, the couple’s marriage couldn’t allegedly keep up.
The unnamed source also claimed that Momoa wants to keep working for himself and for his children, but as a result, he doesn’t have much time for his wife.
Additionally, Momoa’s busy schedule requires that he spends most of his time in Hollywood, but Bonet is content with living by the beach. As such, it would have made sense for the couple to stay married if they couldn’t spend much time with each other.
Jason Momoa Gushes Over Lisa Bonet
However, it is important to note that Momoa and Bonet did not reveal the real reason for their breakup, and they don’t have to do so. After all, this is a private matter.
Prior to their split, the Braven star gushed over Bonet during his interviews. In 2018, he told People that his wife is amazing.
“My wife is amazing. She makes me laugh and is just really quirky… We are a perfect fit. If someone says something isn’t possible, I’m like, ‘Listen here, I married Lisa Bonet. Anything is [expletive] possible,’” Momoa said.
Before they tied the knot, Momoa and Bonet have been together for over 10 years. So, when they exchanged their “I do’s” in 2017, the actor said that he has technically been married to his wife for much longer. And their actual wedding served as a gathering for their family and friends.

In 2018, Bonet also admitted that it wasn’t love at first sight for her and Momoa. But she couldn’t also deny how happy she was because the actor didn’t shy away from the pressure, unlike most men.
“I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day we met. At that moment, love came and it came big and he did not run as I think a lot of men do,” she said.
Momoa and Bonet’s recent split announcement came as a shock to their fans. But at the end of the day, it’s the couple’s decision and everyone should respect it.
