The singer can't stop gushing about his blended family. He has huge respect for Jason Momoa and is best friends with ex-wife Lisa Bonet.
There's no doubt when we say that Jason Momoa is currently one of the hottest stars in the world. From playing the terrifying Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones to becoming a superhero in Aquaman, the actor has shown his versatility as an actor, along with impressing audiences worldwide with his tough and masculine personality.
However, those close to him will tell you that he is the extreme opposite of his exterior. A doting dad and a loving husband, Momoa is a ball of mush at heart. His love story is quite unconventional but adorable at the same time.
The 41-year-old actor is married to actress Lisa Bonet. She played Denise Huxtable in the 80s television hit The Cosby Show. Momoa had revealed previously that he was awestruck by the actress since he saw her on the show and when they met in 2005, the two didn't take much time to fall for each other.
Momoa knew that not only was Bonet 12 years older than him, but she also had a child, Zoe Kravitz, whom she shared with her famous ex-husband, rocker Lenny Kravtiz. If life in movies is to be considered, the mere fact that Bonet's ex was a famous rockstar should have ruffled some feathers between the Momoa and Kravtiz, right? Well, things turned out to be just the opposite.
Kravitz and Momoa have nothing but love and appreciation for each other. As the crooner opened up about his relationship with his ex-wife during an interview with Men's Health Magazine, he shed some light on his equation with Momoa as well.
"People can't believe how tight Jason and I are, or how tight I still am with Zoë's mom, how we all relate," he said. "We just do it because that's what you do. You let love rule, right? I mean, obviously, after a breakup, it's work—it takes some work and time, healing and reflection, et cetera. But as far as Jason and I? Literally the moment we met, we were like, 'Oh, yeah. I love this dude.'"
The Fly Away singer can't stop gushing about his bromance with Momoa. In a 2013 interview on Oprah's Master Class, while speaking about Bonet and his daughter, he included the actor in the family conversation as well. "We were very young. And it was wonderful," he said talking about Bonet and continued, "And we had Zoë, which I see now is what it was all about. It was really about bringing this beautiful child to the planet. And also sharing the love that we had. Zoë's mom and I now are best friends. Which is interesting because that's the way it started."
"But it makes you feel really good when you can do that," he added as he touched on the topic of welcoming his ex-wife's new husband into the family. "When we're all together now—her man, her kids, Zoë, me—we're all together and we're one big, happy family. It's beautiful and it just shows you what can be done."
The feeling is mutual between Momoa and the singer. The Aquaman actor presented Kravitz with a skull ring that he loves personally. Talking about it, he told Entertainment Tonight, "My friend, he made this bone ring since I wanted to get one, and he liked it so I wanted him to have one." Insisting that the ring was a symbol of their family's bond, he added, "Yeah, looking out for each other for sure," he told the outlet. Kravitz too showed his support for Momoa's SNL episode and called him a "brother."
In 2019, the I Belong to You singer said that his love for Bonet has evolved over the years, and now, “We’re like brother and sister," reported People. "After Lisa and I separated, we learned to find a new relationship. Then I met Jason when they got together and I love him, he loves my kid and I love their kids and we're all one big family."
The singer gushed about his big family during an interview with The Times and said, "You go through a marriage with somebody, you break up and it's very difficult," and added, "But [Lisa and I] put the work in and we took the time so that we could become best friends again. Our families are blended."
Kravitz and Bonet, 52, were married for six years and got divorced in 1993. She then married Momoa in 2017. The couple share two kids, Lola, 13, and Nakoa-Wolf, 11.
