Jason Momoa is putting an end to the rumors that he and his ex Lisa Bonet have rekindled their relationship. While walking the red carpet at the 94th Academy Awards this past Sunday, the Dune actor told Access Hollywood that he and Bonet are still family, even if they are no longer together romantically.
“We’re not back together. We’re family, you know?” he told the outlet. “We have two beautiful children together. We’re not getting back together. We’re family forever.”
The couple announced their split with a joint statement posted to Instagram this past January.
“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 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 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 to explain that they both remain devoted to their family. “Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life & our Children,” it read. “Teaching our Children What’s possible ~ Living the Prayer May Love Prevail ✨ J & L.”
The couple, who reportedly first met in 2005, share 14-year-old daughter Lola Momoa and 13-year-old son Nakoa-Wolf Momoa. They officially married in October 2017. (Bonet also shares her first daughter, Zoë Kravitz, with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.)
Jason Momoa Confirmed Where He & Lisa Bonet Really Stand During His Oscars Red Carpet Appearance
Sunday night’s Oscars red carpet was lined with cute couples, a number of celebs went solo — including actor Jason Momoa. Over the course of the past two months, the Dune star has been going through a very public split from his wife of roughly five years Lisa Bonet. And though there have been rumors the two are working things out, Momoa put an end to speculation by addressing their breakup during his recent red carpet appearance.
While chatting with Access Hollywood, Momoa reiterated he and Bonet are truly going their separate ways, and don’t intend on getting back together at the moment. “Oh, no, no, no, we’re not back together,” the Aquaman star told the outlet. “We’re family, you know. We have two beautiful children together. We’re family forever.”
While we’re sure the situation was incredibly uncomfortable for Momoa to address in such a public space, he nevertheless handled it with honesty and thoughtfulness. Since the couple’s early 2022 split, Momoa has shown that family is his top priority. Just a few weeks ago, the actor attended the premiere of The Batman in support of his stepdaughter, Zoë Kravitz, with his and Bonet’s two children, Lola, 14, and Nakoa-Wolf, 13, by his side.
From the time they announced their amicable split, Momoa and Bonet have wholly modeled how to handle such a difficult, personal matter in the public eye. Both parties have emphasized how important their family is, and we’ve seen time and again that those bonds are truly unbreakable. As they continue to navigate their split, we can only hope they’re given the peace and privacy to move forward.
Jason Momoa on Lisa Bonet reconciliation: ‘We’re not getting back together’
“Dune” star Jason Momoa definitively stated that he and estranged wife Lisa Bonet will not be getting back together despite rumors they are reconciling.
“We’re not back together. We’re family. … We have two beautiful children together,” Momoa told “Access Hollywood” on the red carpet at the 2022 Oscars Sunday night, one day after he underwent hernia surgery.
“We’re not getting back together. We’re family forever,” he reiterated.
A source previously claimed to Hollywood Life that the “Aquaman” star, 42, and Bonet, 54, were giving their marriage another try, but he had not shot down the reports until now. Instead, he has made vague mentions of them remaining a “family.”
“Lisa couldn’t be here, so we’re representing, me and the babies,” Momoa told “Entertainment Tonight” earlier this month at the premiere of his stepdaughter Zoë Kravitz’s movie “The Batman” in New York City.
“We’re very excited to just be here. … It’s still family, you know?”
Following his appearance with his and Bonet’s children, Lola, 14, and Nakoa-Wolf, 13, at the premiere, Momoa took to Instagram to thank everyone for respecting them during a period of transition.
“mahalo to the fans and press for being generous and giving us space for the children,” he wrote on social media, adding, “it’s hard enough separating in the public eye. we appreciate the continued privacy through these times.”
The actor and the former “Cosby Show” star announced in a joint statement in January that they were parting ways after more than 15 years together. They began dating in 2005 and tied the knot at a secret wedding in 2017.
“The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived,” the statement read. “We free each other to be who we are learning to become.”
Bonet was previously married to rock star Lenny Kravitz, with whom she shares Zoë.
