Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet said they “are parting ways” on Wednesday (Jan. 12), announcing an end to their over 16-year relationship. The two actors have been together since 2005 and got married in 2017. They share two children together.
“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times,” Momoa shared in a joint statement 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,” they 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 former couple added that their devotion is “unwavering to this sacred life and our children.”
“Teaching our children what’s possible, living the prayer. May love prevail,” the statement concluded.
While news of their breakup shocked fans, Bonet may have hinted at their impending split last month. Speaking with Marisa Tomei for Interview Magazine, the former “Cosby Show” star said she was “learning how to be authentically me” and used some of the same phrases found in their breakup announcement.
“The revolution is definitely here and we’re all feeling the squeeze,” Bonet said at the time. “If you aren’t, you’re in total denial and the more you resist, the more you will suffer. Everything is crumbling out there. The personal work is understanding where empire and those archetypes live within us. The revolution is on the inside and learning to be new in this new world.”
Bonet and Momoa welcomed their first child together, Lola, in 2007 and their second child, Nakoa-Wolf, the next year. Bonet also shares a daughter, actress Zoë Isabella Kravitz, with her ex-husband, rock legend Lenny Kravitz. See their joint statement on Instagram below.
