The new year begins with the first divorce in Hollywood for Lisa Bonet (56) and Jason Momoa (44), who decided to go their separate ways on October 7, 2020. However, this news was not made public until January 2022. On January 8, the star of The Bill Cosby Show finally filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court citing "irreconcilable differences". Apparently, two of the main causes were the strain experienced during the lockdown and the actor's tight schedule.

According to The Times, which obtained access to the divorce papers, the actress has requested joint custody of their two teenage children, Lola Iolani (16) and Nakoa-Wolf (15). She is not seeking any child support and they previously agreed amicably on property separation.

As per Celebrity Net Worth, the actress has a fortune of $10 million, while the actor's stands at $40 million. A significant part of this wealth comes from his involvement in the Aquaman franchise.

In 2005, Jason was engaged to actress Simmone Jade Mackinnon when he met Lisa. That encounter led to the actor deciding not to get married and instead start a relationship with the actress, who had acquired great notoriety in the 80s thanks to her comedies with Bill Cosby and her marriage to Lenny Kravitz (59), with whom she had her firstborn, Zöe (33). In 2017, Momoa and Bonet decided to get married.

As Jason became more prominent, contracts started piling up in his office. Aware that his career had been on shaky ground since his debut in 1992, as soon as Game of Thrones thrust him in the spotlight, he didn't hesitate to accept any and all projects. His extended absences from their home on the outskirts of Los Angeles due to Aquaman shoots, coupled with Lisa's reluctance to leave their residence because she felt comfortable there, caused an irreparable strain on their relationship.
