I think we thought they were the perfect couple. He had fallen in love with her as a kid and practically stalked her. They were together for 16 years, married for five, and seemed to have the cutest family. I loved that video Momoa made about restoring the vintage motorcycle with their kids and all their instagram posts about hanging out with Bonet’s (also gorgeous and talented) ex Lenny Kravitz.
So, when I saw a headline about the “secrets between Momoa and Bonet” I thought it was just another one of those click bait articles, and didn’t even stop editing The Binge Watcher’s Guide to The Golden Girls (which pubs on Monday, January 17th!).
Momoa posted an announcement on Instagram that basically said they are separating, but will remain close as a family.
"We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times," Momoa wrote on Instagram. "A revolution is unfolding ~and our family is of no exception . . . feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring. 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 post continued: “The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived," Momoa wrote. "We free each other ~to be who we are learning to become . . . Our devotion unwavering / to this sacred life / & our Children / Teaching our Children / What's possible / ~Living the Prayer / May Love Prevail / ✨ J & L." ”
He invoked “these trying times” as part of the reason, but my HEA heart is just broken, because if these rich and beautiful people can’t make it work, who can?
Twitter is agog, and so many smart-aleks want to now, “who gets custody of Lenny Kravitz?”
