Lenny Kravitz is widely regarded as one of the most famous artists and rock idols in the whole globe. After taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance for each of the previous four years in a row, he established himself as a major player not only in the music business but also in the entertainment sector and the acting world.
However, underneath the stylish and diverse hard rock persona that he presents, actor Zo Kravitz’s father is really a very caring and kind person. Many people would believe that the two of them actually did come from the same block just based on the strong similarity they share with one another.
Zoe was already in the public eye when she was born, much like a great number of other famous newborns. It was at this time that Lenny’s career began to get up that he became a father to a girl with Lisa Bonet, who was his wife at the time.
Lenny spoke up to Piers Morgan in 2012 about how, at one time in his career, he would simply go on and use pot all day long. Piers Morgan was the interviewer. Eventually, he gave up smoking and became sober when Zoe, who was eleven years old at the time, lived with him in the same household. He had no idea at the time that this was the beginning of what would become one of the cutest father-daughter relationships in Hollywood. Zoe and her father have a very close relationship.
The emotion was reciprocal, as she has always been outspoken about her extremely strong connection with his father. In the same manner that Lenny talked highly of her daughter Zoe on many occasions and in numerous interviews, the feeling was also reciprocated.
In an interview with People Magazine, Lenny discussed how his close but extremely open connection with his daughter was essential in maintaining Bonet remained a member of their family, despite the fact that they had divorced and that Bonet had her own family. The interview was conducted by Lenny.
Born in New York City on May 26, 1964 to pioneering African American actress Roxie Roker and NBC television news producer Sy Kravitz, Lenny became one of the most famous musicians in the world in the early 1980s and continues to be one of the most famous musicians in the world today.
He is a multi-talented musician who is active in the fields of singing, songwriting, record production, and playing several instruments. In addition to that, he also works as an actress. The songs “It Ain’t Over ’til It’s Over,” “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” and “American Woman” are just a few examples of his many successes.
The marriage that Lenny had with the actress Bonet was the one that brought him the greatest fame. Before beginning their romantic engagement in 1985, the two had spent many years previous to that as close friends. On the occasion of Bonet’s 20th birthday in November 1987, the couple secretly wed in Las Vegas, and two years later, in December 1988, they became parents to a girl named Zoe. Despite this, Lenny and Bonet officially split up in 1993.
After that, Lenny had a romantic relationship with a number of other ladies, including Vanessa Paradis, Adriana Lima, and even Nicole Kidman, who is a winner of an Academy Award. He was engaged to both Lima and Kidman at the same time, but things did not work out with either of them in the end.
Even though Lenny was pursuing his own happiness, he hasn’t spent any time away from his daughter Zoe, who he speaks to extremely affectionately whenever her name is brought up. This is because Lenny hasn’t taken any vacation time.
During an interview on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” Lenny said that the connection that his mother had with his grandpa served as an important source of motivation for him to become the kind of parent that he is today.
“Since Zoe and I share the same connection, I was a witness to the relationship that they had. Noah was informed that they had a very strong bond and were quite close to one another. “They were father and daughter, and they were best friends,” he said.
Lenny has openly discussed the methods in which he intends to maintain contact with Bonet, Zoe’s mother, despite the fact that the two have a close connection with one another.
A divorce was finalized between Bonet and Lenny in 1993, which was four years after Zo’s birth in 1988. However, in contrast to other famous couples, these two parted ways civilly and have not shied away from their joint responsibility for their daughter’s development despite their divorce.
The following is an excerpt from an interview that Lenny gave to People Magazine in which he revealed the key to his close connection with his daughter: “Zo and I have a really open discussion.” We are free to discuss anything and anything that comes to mind.
During a different portion of the interview, the rock icon was questioned on the significance of maintaining Bonet and Zo’s friendship with each other as they grew older.
“It’s very necessary. The fact that we are parents has not altered the depth of our love for one another; rather, it has only brought about a new dynamic in our relationship. “It takes time, labor, and devotion, but that is something that the two of us possessed,” he said in an interview with the magazine.
It’s interesting to note that Lenny and Bonet’s new husband, Jason Momoa, have made public statements about their strong friendship, which dates back to their first encounter in 2013.
Following his split with Bonet and the beginning of his connection with Momoa, Lenny explained to The Times that the composition of his current family is “mixed.”
Lenny explained more for Oprah Winfrey in her series titled “Masterclass” on how the fairly convoluted arrangement for many finally worked out for them in the long run. The series was hosted by Oprah Winfrey.
“Zo’s mom and I are now the best of friends,” said the speaker. When it’s just the five of us – her partner, her kids, Zoe, and myself – we’re a normal, happy family. But when we’re all together, we’re a large, happy family. It’s stunning, and it simply goes to demonstrate what’s possible.”
Also in January 2022, Momoa and Bonet separated amicably, although both of them, along with Lenny, continue to share parental responsibilities for their two children.
In March of 2022, Zo commented on an Instagram image that his father had shared by saying, “Well, isn’t this simply lovely. love you both so very much” as both Lenny and Momoa posed in a shot together on their motorcycles with the caption: “Ride or die. Brothers till the end.”
