Bonet was ⅕ of America’s favorite television family on The Cosby Show.
Kravitz said of Bonet during a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone, “That woman inspired me so much. It was a magical time that she and I shared. I just opened up artistically.”
They eloped in 1987. A year later, they welcomed their daughter, Zoë. The young couple were one of Hollywood’s favorites, but being young is exactly what drove them apart. They separated in 1991 and two years later, their divorce was finalized.
Kravitz spiraled into a state of depression, admitting that he barely slept for six months after their split. Despite the breakup, Kravitz and Bonet consider themselves to be the best of friends. The two have blended their families seamlessly and spend tons of time together.
