It came as a shock to learn that Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa had ended their relationship after 16 years. The A-listers tied the knot in 2018 but decided to end things in January. “We have all felt the pressures and changes of these times of transformation … A revolution is unfolding and our family is no exception,” they explained in a joint statement (via Grazia). “And so we tell our family that we are separating in marriage… The love between us continues and develops in the way it wants to be known and lived.” We free each other to be what we learn to be.”
According to sources close to the former couple, there was no bad blood; they just drifted apart. “They’ve been doing things separately for a while,” an insider told People. “They were a great couple with a lot of love and respect for each other, but people change and goals change, and they weren’t the same together.” Bonet and Momoa share two children, Lola Iolani and Nakoa-Wolf. Momoa is also close to Bonet’s eldest daughter, Zoë Kravitz, and even appeared on Page Six for the March “Batman” premiere.
Bonet has stepped down since the split, while Momoa has reportedly tried to move on. To learn more about Mamoa’s situation and how she’s coping, Nicki Swift spoke to Rori Sassoon, relationship expert and co-owner of matchmaking agency Platinum Poire.
Jason Momoa is having fun
According to veteran matchmaker Rori Sassoon, Jason Momoa is ready to move on. In the months since their split, the Aquaman star had been linked to Eiza González – ten years his junior. “He will likely continue to go out younger and revitalize his youthful energy and zest for life. Jason has a lot going for him and his youthful charm and looks will continue to serve him well,” Sassoon explained.
Momoa was happy to be back out there with González, but it wasn’t easy. In June, Momoa and González split after just a few months together. A source told People that they decided to end the relationship because “they’re at different stages of life.” However, in July, the couple was spotted on a motorcycle ride through Malibu while looking cozy, according to Us Weekly. They keep in touch and see each other when they can,” an insider told People. According to Sassoon, it’s normal for Momoa to find himself in a somewhat messy relationship after his marriage ends. “Jason has slowly dipped his toes in the dating pond — with Eiza González. Their on-off relationship isn’t surprising given Jason has been in a long-term relationship for almost half of his life.”
They appear to be back together, but things aren’t exactly serious with González as Momoa is likely focused on having fun these days. “Expect less commitment, more fun, and a variety of leading actresses to accompany him,” Sassoon said.
