When Kravitz met Bonet, he was far from the iconic music star that everyone knows him as these days. In 1989, she co-wrote multiple songs with him on his first major album, Let Love Rule. In an article from the L.A. Times from that same year, a reporter describes how someone mistakenly referred to Lenny as “Mr. Bonet,” around that time.
Everyone seemed to think the two were meant for each other, but they would be sorely disappointed. Just a few years later, in 1993, the couple announced their breakup.
Made for TV
By 2008, Bonet had returned to her love of acting for television and taken on the role of Detective Maya Daniels in 'Life on Mars'. She would then go on to play a few parts for the historical reenactments on 'Drunk History'. In more recent years, she’s starred as Marisol Campos on Showtime’s crime drama, 'Ray Donovan'.
In 2017, she guest-starred in a short film called 'Jellywolf', which was based around Chanel’s No. 5 perfume. The film was directed by Alma Har’el, and has been described as an “ethereal, feminine coming of age story.” Bonet starred beside Kiersey Clemmons in the spiritual and empowering tale.
Bonet may have taken a step back from acting since her last role, but that doesn’t mean her name doesn’t still pop up all over the place. Of course, these days it’s mainly because she’s attached to one of the biggest current stars in the world. But then again, she’s always been attracted to superstars – even long before they realize they’re going to become as big as they do!
Before she was with her current husband, she was married to rock legend Lenny Kravitz, with whom she shares a daughter.
Bonet and Kravitz got married very quickly after they started dating. She told Ebony magazine that the time period with the star was all very “accelerated, spiritually and intellectually.” She took things a lot slower with her second husband, who she didn’t marry until after the two had been together for 12 years already.
Momoa would later express that he thought of her as “the one” from the moment they met. But Bonet may have not felt exactly the same way from the get-go.
Change of Roles
Bonet’s ex-husband speaks very highly of her whenever he’s asked about their past or current relationship. He agrees with her when she says that everything happened so quickly when they were both very young, but neither of them regrets a thing. Especially considering their relationship resulted in the birth of their beautiful daughter, Zoë Kravitz.
In an interview with People where he said that the relationship between the co-parents has become that of brother and sister.
