After 16 years of being together and five years being a married couple, Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa and A Different World star Lisa Bonet announced they were going their separate ways.
Needless to say, fans were shook over the split and had some eye-opening thoughts to share.
Before we get to those comments, Momoa explained in an Instagram post:
“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times.”
Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet released a joint statement posted on the former's verified Instagram account, announcing they are ending their marriage.https://cnn.it/3FpIexZ— CNN (@CNN) 1642067103
“We share this not because we think it’s newsworthy ~ But so that~ as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty.”
"The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other ~to be who we are learning to become…"
The two started dating in 2005. Although it was previously believed they married on November 15, 2007, Momoa and Bonet actually exchanged vows in October 2017.
The separated couple share two children–a daughter, Lola, who was born in July 2007; and their son, Nakoa-Wolf, who was born in December 2008.
"Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life & our Children," wrote Momoa.He ended the post with:
"Teaching our Children What’s possible ~ Living the Prayer May Love Prevail ."
The reason for their separation is unclear, but fans had plenty to say about it.

Shocking. Sad. And yet, if they're able to handle it with honesty and love, more power to them. My ex and I couldn't and I will forever see that as a tragedy. Best to them both.— Melanie (@Melanie) 1642037841
