Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have announced that they have split after 16 years together, although it turns out the Game of thrones and Aquaman The star fell in love with her partner long before they met – having been fascinated by Bonet since seeing her on television when he was eight years old.
In a joint statement posted to social media, the couple – who had been married for five years – explained how their relationship came to an end of its course.
“We have all felt the pressure and the changes of these transformative times,” they wrote.
“A revolution is unfolding and our family is no exception…
“And so we share the news from our family that we are separating in marriage.
“We share this not because we think it’s worth publishing, but so that, throughout our lives, we can do it with dignity and honesty.
“The love between us continues, evolving in a way that it wishes to be known and experienced. We free each other to be what we learn to be. ”
A few years ago, Momoa, 42, revealed that he had only spoken to Bonet, 54, about his feelings for her when he was younger after having two children together – his daughter Lola Iolani Momoa and her son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.
He told James Corden on The late show: “Ever since I was eight years old and I’ve seen her on TV, I’ve been like ‘Mom, I want this one.’
“I’m like ‘I’m going to hunt you down for the rest of my life and I’m going to have you.’ I am a full-fledged stalker.
“I didn’t tell her that until I had two babies, otherwise I’d be scary and weird.”
” But yes, [I’d] I always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always. ”
He also reflected on how they finally met – at a jazz club in New York City, no less.
He said: “We were just in the right place at the right time.
“I actually dreaded my hair for her. I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks.
“I literally turned around and I see her and she says ‘I’m Lisa’. I turned to my friend and I [pretended to scream]. Got some fucking fireworks inside, man. ”
He added, “I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel. ”
