One of the most well-known artists and rock legends in the world is Lenny Kravitz. He truly created a name for himself in the music business, on the entertainment scene, and as an actor after winning Grammy Awards for Best Rock Vocal Performance four years in a row.
But underneath his stylish and diverse hard rock persona is a really caring and considerate father to actress Zo Kravitz. Many people would concur that the two of them indeed originated from the same block based only on their strong similarity.
Zo was already a celebrity baby when she was born, like many other famous children. Lenny and his then-wife, Lisa Bonet, had a kid about the time that his career started to take off.
Lenny revealed to Piers Morgan in 2012 that he used to consume marijuana nonstop during one stage of his career. When Zo moved home with him at the age of 11, he eventually stopped smoking and went clean, not realizing that this was the beginning of one of the cutest father-daughter relationships in Hollywood.
Lenny frequently praised her daughter Zo in interviews, but the affection was also shared because she has always been forthright about her tight bond with his father.
Lenny highlighted how his close but open connection with his daughter helped Bonet remain a member of their family despite their divorce and the latter having a family of her own in an interview with People Magazine.
From the early 1980s till the present, Lenny has been one of the most popular artists in the world. He was born in New York on May 26, 1964, to revolutionary Black actress Roxie Roker and NBC television news producer Sy Kravitz.
He works as a vocalist, composer, record producer, and instrumentalist. He is a man of numerous musical abilities. He is an actor in addition to all of that. “It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over,” “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” and “American Woman” are a few of his top songs.
Lenny’s marriage to the actress Bonet was his most well-known union. Before beginning their relationship in 1985, the two spent a few years as close friends. On Bonet’s 20th birthday, they fled to Las Vegas, where they later gave birth to a daughter named Zo in December 1988. Lenny and Bonet did, however, get divorced in 1993.
Following Bonet, Lenny dated a few other women, including Nicole Kidman, Adriana Lima, and Vanessa Paradis, who was nominated for an Oscar. Both Kidman and Lima, with whom he was engaged, ended their engagements.
Lenny has pursued his own happiness, but he hasn’t spent any time away from his daughter Zo, with whom he cherishes every conversation about her.
Lenny said to Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” that his mother’s friendship with his grandfather served as his biggest source of parental inspiration.
I observed that they shared the same bond that Zo and I do. They were father and daughter and closest friends; they were so tight-knit and close.
Although they have a close relationship, Lenny has made it clear that he prefers to keep Zo’s mother, Bonet, involved.
Four years after the birth of Zo in 1988, Bonet and Lenny were divorced in 1993. However, unlike other famous couples, the two split peacefully and haven’t abandoned their joint obligation to their daughter’s development.
Lenny offers a key to his close bond with his daughter in an interview with People Magazine: “Zo and I have a really open discussion. Everything and everything is up for discussion.
The rock icon was questioned on the significance of preserving Bonet and Zo’s friendship as they grew up elsewhere in the interview.
“It’s crucial. It’s simply a new circumstance, but we still love one other just as much as before. It takes time, effort, and devotion, but the two of us had all of those qualities, he told the magazine.
It’s interesting to note that Lenny and Bonet’s new husband, Jason Momoa, has publicly acknowledged their tight friendship, which dates back to their first encounter in 2013.
Lenny explained to The Times that, in light of his split from Bonet and relationship with Momoa, his new family structure is “mixed.”
Lenny touched on how the rather convoluted arrangement for many ultimately worked out for them in the long run in his more recent interview with Oprah Winfrey for her “Masterclass” series.
“My best buddy now is Zo’s mother. Her partner, her children, Zoe, and I form a large, content family whenever we are all together. It’s stunning and simply goes to show what’s possible.
Momoa and Bonet also went through an amicable divorce in January 2022, and they continue to share custody of their two children with Lenny.
In March 2022, Zo left the following remark on his father’s Instagram post: “Well isn’t this simply lovely. Lenny and Momoa posed for a photo together on their motorcycles with the caption: “Ride or die. I love you both so much. Forever brothers
