The former couple’s official social media statement reads:

“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times … A revolution is unfolding ~and our family is of no exception … feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring,” the pair wrote in a joint statement shared via Instagram on Wednesday, January 12. “And so~ We share our Family news~ That we are parting ways in marriage. 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.”

Now, on the heels of this announcement, many DC Comics fans who enjoy Warner Bros.’ Aquaman franchise are taking to social media to suggest that Momoa’s costar, Amber Heard (Mera), played a role in breaking up he and Bonet’s 16-year relationship.

This is unsurprising given Heard’s controversial status — she has been embroiled in a bitter legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean, Sleepy Hollow, Alice In Wonderland) for over a year.

It is, however, worth noting that the rumors of the Sweet Girl actor and Bonet being were on the rocks were fueled when Momoa was spotted exiting a Los Angeles bar without his other half or, notably, Heard, in November 2021 — but did have a mystery woman in tow.

Although Heard is unlikely to publicly respond to the online speculation, the internet is having a field day with the controversial actress on social platforms. An action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman” reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.

If you haven’t been following the ongoing Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard case, in November 2020, Hollywood actor Depp lost his libel lawsuit against U.K. News Group Newspaper publication, The Sun, for their report that he had allegedly engaged in domestic violence — including a reported “hostage” situation during a Pirates of the Caribbean shoot in Australia — against the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom actress on multiple occasions.

British Judge Andrew Nicol presided over the original proceedings, and Depp later lost his right to appeal the original ruling in the United Kingdom. The Jack Sparrow actor, for his part, has denied the domestic violence allegations, with even his ex-partners, Vanessa Paradis and Winona Ryder, speaking out in his defense at various points in time.

At this time, the former couple is next expected to appear in court in relation to their $50 million U.S. civil lawsuit in Virginia in April 2022.
