Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa split after 16 years

Long considered, by me, as one of the sexiest couples alive, Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa have called it quits on their love.

The 42 year old Aquaman and the 54 year old Cosby Show actress were married for 5 years, but had been together for 16.  They lived happily for most of that time, but it seems from statements that the pandemic lock downs finally took their toll.

Momoa, 42, announced their separation in a joint statement on his Instagram Wednesday. (Bonet, 54, does not have social media.)

“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,” the joint statement read. “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 statement 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 statement concluded, “Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life our children. Teaching our children what’s possible. Living the Prayer. May Love Prevail? J & L.”

I am seriously holding out hope the two find their way back to one another. Listen to Jason describe the time they met;

“I actually had dreaded my hair for her. I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks. I literally turned around and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend and I [pretended to scream]. I had f—ing fireworks going off inside, man,” he said at the time. “I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel.”

The two share two kids. In July 2007, they welcomed their first child, Lola, and welcomed their second child, Nakoa-Wolf, in December 2008. (Bonet is also mom to Zoë Kravitz, 33, whom she shares with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.)

Let’s hope these two just need time apart.
