Kravitz and Bonet formed a friendship before they started dating. In his book, Let love rule, Kravitz says he tried to put aside his romantic feelings and just focus on relating to her as a friend or brother. They were both dating other people at the time (Kravitz became involved with someone else), so he took a step back and did not try to push romance.

Kravitz accepted their friendship, but at times it was difficult because he and Bonet were attracted to each other. Kravitz says that when they first met, they “immediately shook” and there was “magnetism” between them even though they didn’t say much. Kravtiz says he was glad they started out as friends in the first place. He felt that they did things the right way by taking it slow.

Kravitz says he was so “happy” with Bonet that he broke the bond with his girlfriend, Mitzi. For him, there was no place in his life for Mitzi and Bonet. He said he was unwilling to let Bonet go, so he ended things with Mitzi.

All Kravitz knew he had to be around Bonet, even if their relationship didn’t turn into something romantic. He told Mitzi that although he and Bonet were not sleeping together at the time, “he could not stay away from her.”

The singer credits Bonet with helping him find himself and transform into an artist. He says he wasn’t really his own before he met her. He abandoned the platform name he used (Romeo Blue) and began using his real name. He also decided to get a nose ring like hers.

Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet’s first kiss

The first kiss between Kravitz and Bonet happened late one night while he was at the music studio. He says Bonet fell over a string on her way to the bathroom, and fell into her arms. Kravitz says they looked at each other and then started kissing. According to him, “time” stopped at that point. He described their kiss as “unusual.”

Kravitz says that a kiss changed everything between him and Bonet. They lived together in separate rooms at the time. However, after they kissed, he moved into her room. Kravitz and Bonet immediately became twins.
