‘Aquaman’ Star, Jason Momoa And Wife, Lisa Bonet Split After 16 Years Together
In a joint statement shared Wednesday to Momoa’s Instagram account, the 42-year-old Aquaman star and the 54-year-old Cosby Show actress announced that they are separating.
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. And so we share our Family news that we are parting ways in marriage.
The couple explained in their statement that they weren’t announcing their separation ‘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 lived. We free each other to be who we are learning to become….
Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life & our Children,’ they concluded. ‘Teaching our Children What’s possible ~ Living the Prayer.
‘May Love Prevail,’ they added, signing off as ‘J & L.’

Although the separation announcement seemingly came out of nowhere, weeks earlier Bonet had said she was learning to be ‘authentically me‘ when she chatted with another actress, Marisa Tomei for Interview in December.
Momoa and Bonet‘s romance goes back to 2004, when they were introduced by mutual friends at a jazz club performance.

Bonet also shares her adult daughter Zoë Kravitz, 33, with her ex-husband, Lenny Kravitz. The actress and Kravitz eloped in 1987, but later divorced in 1993:
