After announcing their breakup two years ago, Lisa Bonet has officially filed for divorce from her husband Jason Momoa. The long-time couple, who were together for nearly 20 years and share two children, have finally made legal moves to end their marriage.

Background On Lisa Bonet And Jason Momoa’s Relationship

Bonet, 55 and Momoa, 43 first met at a jazz club back in 2005 through mutual friends. At the time, Bonet was coming off her split from rocker Lenny Kravitz, with whom she shares daughter Zoë Kravitz.

Momoa revealed that it was love-at-first sight when he saw Bonet across the room, saying “I turned around and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend and was like, [screams]. I had f****** fireworks going off inside me, man.”

The two began dating and welcomed their first child together, daughter Lola Iolani Momoa, in July 2007. They had their second child, son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, in December 2008.

In November 2007, Bonet and Momoa had a traditional Māori wedding ceremony. Over a decade later, they officially wed in October 2017.

The two seemed blissfully in love for the entirety of their relationship, with Momoa often gushing about his soulmate. However, after nearly 17 years together and 5 years of marriage, Bonet and Momoa revealed in January 2022 that they were “parting ways in marriage.”

Though they were splitting, they emphasized that “the love between [them] carries on.” Many fans hoped they would find their way back together. However, Bonet filing for divorce makes the breakup official and permanent.

Bonet Officially Files Legal Documentation To Divorce Momoa

According to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents obtained Monday, Bonet filed for divorce from Momoa on January 6, 2025.

The filing was made in the County of Los Angeles and cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce. Sources say the split has been “a long time coming” and the pair actually separated in March 2021 before going public.

Bonet requests joint legal and physical custody of their minor son Nakoa-Wolf, 14, and asks the judge to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to either party.

The documents also note that Bonet and Momoa have a prenup in place to divide their assets from the marriage. Both are asking the court to honor that prenup when separating their property.

What Led To The Breakup After Nearly 20 Years Together?

Though Bonet and Momoa always portrayed a loving relationship publically, insiders suggest they actually grew apart years ago. Some sources cite Momoa spending prolonged periods away to shoot various projects as part of the issue.

A source told Hollywood Life that Bonet and Momoa had been struggling for years, explaining:

“A lot changed in their lives—children, work—and they wanted different things…The children always kept them linked and united no matter what was going on between them, but at the end of the day, Lisa and Jason found they just couldn’t make it work.

The source adds that despite loving one another greatly, they came to accept ending things was for the best.

Another insider suggests a key factor was simply growing apart as they matured from young parents to middle-aged adults:

“Jason and Lisa had tons of issues as he gained fame and worked away more on location…when they were younger it was exciting but as they matured they grew apart. Being in different places physically and mentally took a toll. They’re very different people.”

While the reasons for the split are not fully confirmed, Bonet and Momoa themselves have not said anything negative about one another. Their joint statement emphasized their family would remain bonded forever and it’s believed they will continue co-parenting their two children amicably.

What Will Happen Following The Divorce Filing?

With Bonet having officially started divorce proceedings, Momoa now has 30 days to respond to the filing, either contesting it or accepting the terms. Given their separation has been in process for years and was clearly communicated between them already, Momoa is expected to accept the filing.

Both Bonet and Momoa have requested joint custody of son Nakoa-Wolf, so after the divorce is settled they will likely arrange custody schedules to divide time with him. Their daughter Lola is now over 18.

Financially, Bonet and Momoa will divide their marital assets based on the prenup they have in place from before their 2017 marriage. Sources suggest Momoa may get to keep multiple of their joint homes.

Neither will receive spousal support or alimony based on Bonet rejecting that in her initial filing.

Overall the proceedings are expected to progress smoothly and end within a few months at most, given the amicable and understanding nature of Bonet and Momoa’s split.

The pair may need to still have some joint court hearings regarding child custody plans for Nakoa-Wolf’s schedule between their two homes. But sources believe Momoa and Bonet will continue co-parenting effectively together.

It’s possible once the divorce is finalized months from now, Bonet and Momoa will both eventually move on to date other people if they so choose. But their statement emphasized that love will remain, likely meaning they will stay dear friends as they jointly raise their kids.

This major life change marks the official end to Bonet and Momoa’s iconic partnership spanning nearly twenty years. Though undoubtedly emotional for them and their fans, the two are handling the shifts with grace and commitment to caring for their family. This next chapter will reveal what the future holds for each moving forward.
