The Truth About Jason Momoa And Lenny Kravitz's Relationship

Singer and songwriter Lenny Kravitz and actor Jason Momoa might never have met if it were not for one factor: Both men have been married to actress Lisa Bonet. Kravitz and Bonet got married back in 1987 and share a child, Zoë Kravitz. The pair divorced years later, but they eventually managed to come together and become friends again for their daughter.

Bonet met Momoa in 2004, and they began dating right away, though she later admitted that they weren't completely head over heels from the jump (per the Independent). However, they were committed to growing and exploring together, and eventually they welcomed two children together and got married in 2017.

Over the years, it's become clear that Jason Momoa and Lenny Kravitz have achieved something that is so hard for so many blended families: a true friendship that centers and prioritizes the family they all share. Despite the fact that Bonet and Momoa recently announced their own separation, there are plenty of reasons to believe the friendship between these two men will endure.

Lenny Kravitz immediately liked Jason Momoa

It makes sense that Lenny Kravitz, as the ex-husband of Lisa Bonet and father of their daughter together, would have an opinion or two about Jason Momoa when he and Bonet revealed they were serious. Happily for everyone involved, Kravitz really, really liked Momoa right from the start.

While speaking to Men's Health in October 2020, Kravitz shared that he and Momoa get along so well because that's what was best for everyone, including his daughter, Zoë. He explained, "People can't believe how tight Jason and I are, or how tight I still am with Zoë's mom, how we all relate. We just do it because that's what you do."

Kravitz did admit that he and Bonet had to work through their individual hurt following their divorce, but by the time she met Momoa, that was a thing of the past, which allowed him the ability to just really focus on the actor. In light of that admission, it's not really surprising that the twosome hit it off right away. Kravitz said, "But as far as Jason and I? Literally the moment we met, we were like, 'Oh, yeah. I love this dude.'"

People love seeing Jason Momoa and Lenny Kravitz's brotherly bond

The relationship between Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa was so great so early on that it became easy for the pair to identify themselves as family, no matter how non-traditional it felt to any outsiders. In August 2021, Kravitz celebrated Momoa's birthday on Instagram alongside a caption that kicked off a full online celebration of the woman they both loved. Kravitz wrote, "Happy Birthday, @prideofgypsies. I'm proud to call you my brother. One love. One family."

Fans were delighted to see yet another display of the goodwill between the two men and rightfully began praising Lisa Bonet as a result. As one woman put it on Twitter, Bonet's powers are something to behold. Writer Tara Dublin tweeted, "Lenny Kravitz really sets the standard for all men while Lisa Bonet is why they created the term 'life goals.'"

Celebrities also joined in on the fun, with actress Holly Robinson Peete adding her own love for the family to Twitter. She wrote, "Listennnn ... This bro love is some evolved blended family goals! Love that twitter is giving Lisa Bonet her [flower emoji]."

Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa share a 'family love'

Both Jason Momoa and Lenny Kravitz have been public about their shared priority: blending their families together, no matter what it takes. To that end, while speaking to Porter magazine in 2018, Lisa Bonet shared that the threesome really put a lot of attention on creating a shared love that was real. As she said simply, "It's fantastic. It's full-on family love."

While speaking to "Oprah's Master Class," Kravitz commented on the fact that he and Momoa have somehow managed to do what feels impossible to so many former couples who share children, and that it honestly feels great that they've pulled it off. He shared that he and Bonet have managed to circle back to being best friends, before adding, "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 focus for Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa has always been their family

The first time Lenny Kravitz spoke publicly about Jason Momoa was in June 2013, which was years after Momoa and Lisa Bonet began their relationship. While chatting with "Oprah's Master Class," Kravitz touched on his "magical" relationship with Bonet, sharing, "She really helped to bring out the best in me and inspired me." He then admitted that he now believes that their relationship existed just to bring their daughter into the world. 

Of course, both men have made sure that Zoë Kravitz knows she is an incredibly important priority in each of their lives. Momoa has appeared to take the role of stepfather seriously, and he and Zoë have nicknames for one another that Momoa revealed on Instagram in October 2021. While sharing the trailer for "The Batman," a movie in which Zoë stars, he wrote, "So proud of you zozo bear."

Jason Momoa and Lenny Kravitz even have matching rings

The friendship shared by Jason Momoa and Lenny Kravitz hasn't only been limited to saying wonderful things about one another in interviews and on social media. The two decided to make things official (as friends!) by sporting matching skull rings together back in December 2018. Momoa shared a photo of the pair with their fists out and their rings featuring skulls prominently displayed writing on Instagram. In the caption, he wrote, "I'm a huge fan of the artists I meet on Instagram," adding, "I got @lennykravitz a present made by @leroyswoodentattoos." 

In the same post, Momoa also shared that he and Kravitz were spending time together because the latter came to visit him while he hosted "Saturday Night Live." Kravitz himself revealed the fact to be true when he took to Instagram to share a selfie from backstage at the studio alongside the caption, "My brother @prideofgypsies is doing his thing right now on @nbcsnl."

Hopefully these two will remain friends now that Momoa and Lisa Bonet have announced their separation.
