Zoë Kravitz was born in 1988 to Lenny Kravitz, a world-famous musician, and Lisa Bonet, an iconic American actress of the ’80s. However, Lenny and Lisa called quits on their marriage five years after their daughter’s birth.
The 34-year-old is treading the path of both parents and has starred in movies like Big Little Lies, Mad Max: Fury Road, High Fidelity, and The Batman, where she took the role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman. She also delved into music, forming a band, Lolawolf, and has successfully released two albums, Calm Down and Tenderness.
Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet’s marriage and divorce
The couple met at a New Edition concert in the mid-’80s. Lisa was at the time already an established star while Lenny was still mostly an upcoming musician. They were initially just friends, but eventually they started dating, and on November 16, 1987, which was Bonet’s 20th birthday, the couple tied the knot.
The singer disclosed to Rolling Stone in 1995 how he felt about his wife. “She was like a female version of me. That woman inspired me so much. It was a magical time that she and I shared. I just opened up artistically.”

However, the marriage did not last and in 1991 the couple separated. Their divorce was finalized in 1993, but they have remained close friends and seem to share a great bond.
Lenny once revealed to Men’s Health that despite their divorce, the ex-lovers maintain a very good relationship with each and especially with Bonet’s second husband, Jason Momoa. “People can’t believe how tight Jason and I are, or how tight I still am with Zoë’s mom, how we all relate,” he told the outlet. “We just do it, because that’s what you do. You let love rule, right? I mean, obviously, after a breakup, it’s work — it takes some work and time, healing and reflection, et cetera.”
