Following years of love and commitment, divorce can prove to be challenging, especially for a famous and beloved figure like Jason Momoa.

Once a beloved couple in Hollywood, Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet captivated fans with their enigmatic relationship. They were famous for keeping their romance out of the public eye, leaving their admirers curious about the intriguing details of their love story.

The star of Aquaman confessed that he had first laid eyes on Bonet while watching her on television, instantly turning to his mother and proclaiming, “Mommy, I want that one.” From that moment on, Momoa was determined in his pursuit of Bonet.

Their paths finally crossed through mutual acquaintances at a jazz club, bringing their long-awaited meeting to reality. Describing the moment vividly, he expressed, “I literally turned around, and I see her, and she goes, ya know, ’I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend, and I was like, ’Ahhh!’ I had fireworks going off inside, man.”

After that momentous meeting, they wasted no time and soon went on their first date. Before long, they decided to tie the knot. The couple also expanded their family, with Momoa willingly assuming the role of a loving stepfather to Zoë Kravitz, Bonet’s daughter from a previous relationship.

In January 2022, Momoa and Bonet announced their split after spending 16 years together, which included almost five years of marriage. They openly acknowledged their personal growth and differences; while Momoa thrived on travel and adventure, Bonet found comfort in cozy activities like reading, writing, and cooking. Despite these distinctions, their commitment to their children remains steadfast, and they firmly believe that their love will continue to bloom.

After their split, Jason embraced the van life.

After their divorce announcement, Jason Momoa was occasionally seen living in his camper van, which he parked at a friend’s house in Los Angeles. Interestingly, this Ford RV, worth $750,000, is just a few miles away from the home where Momoa and Bonet used to live with their children.

The van has served as a makeshift hotel for him during filming trips away from home. According to a source, Momoa often opts to sleep in his van rather than staying in a hotel on set, as he prefers being close to the beach. It’s no secret that the actor shies away from extravagant private jets or luxury resorts.

Momoa has always had a penchant for the nomadic life, and his adventurous spirit extends beyond the big screen.

In his pre-fame days, he embarked on an epic escapade with a buddy. Despite their financial limitations, they hopped into a small van and set out to explore the breathtaking landscapes of Ireland. Opting for a humble and nomadic lifestyle, they skipped fancy plane tickets and fully immersed themselves in the journey. These stories vividly depict Momoa’s easygoing and carefree approach to life, a spirit that continues to define him today.

In an Instagram post, Momoa gave his followers a glimpse into his van life, showcasing how his van was equipped with everything he needed. What’s truly impressive is his commitment to being eco-friendly; he has replaced plastic items with plastic-free alternatives.

Going the extra mile, he demonstrated how he takes a quick shower using a hanging shower head on the van’s door. Moreover, Momoa strategically parks his van right outside a superstore, ensuring super convenience during his life on the road. It’s evident that practicality is the cornerstone of his hassle-free nomadic lifestyle.
