Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet separated their ways after being married for just over four years. In a joint statement shared Wednesday to Momoa’s Instagram account, the 42-year-old Game Of Thrones star and the 54-year-old Cosby Show actress announced that they are separating.
The statement posted on Instagram reads, “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.” the statement continued.
“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 Marisa Tomei for an Interview in December.
Momoa and Bonet were first romantically linked in 2004 when they were introduced by mutual friends at a jazz club performance. The couple’s post also included several meditative photos, though they didn’t spell out their connection to the separation announcement. An image featured a lovely peach-colored sunset in which a crescent moon could already be seen glowing in the sky.
Meanwhile, another photo showed poles erected outside that appeared to be decorated with rectangular strips of white fabric covered in small black text. Two more photos appeared to show two people holding small birds in their palms. The figures were probably the couple’s children, daughter Lola, 14, and son Nakoa-Wolf, 13. Bonet also shares her adult daughter Zoë Kravitz, 33, with her ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.
