Lenny Kravitz Shares He’s Been Celibate for Almost a Decade Since His Last Relationship

Lenny Kravitz’s journey from a rock star sex symbol to a life of celibacy is a testament to how time can change perspectives. Once known for his wild rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, Kravitz now follows a spiritual path that includes turning away from casual, no-strings-attached relationships. “It’s a spiritual thing,” he explains.

Kravitz’s history of high-profile romances is well-documented, often as famous as his music career. But at 60, he’s committed to abstaining from physical intimacy until he finds the right partner, influenced by his father’s infidelity. Discovering his father, Sy Kravitz, was unfaithful to his mother, actress Roxie Roker, deeply affected him. His own marriage to actress Lisa Bonet ended in 1993, after which he had notable relationships with Vanessa Paradis, Adriana Lima, and Nicole Kidman, but none led to marriage.

Reflecting on his father’s prophecy that he would follow a similar path, Kravitz says, “After the marriage, I became more like him. I was becoming a player. I didn’t like it. I didn’t want to be that guy.” Taking responsibility for his actions and imposing discipline on himself, Kravitz has embraced nine years of celibacy, waiting for a meaningful connection.

However, he acknowledges that his routine lifestyle might make it harder to find a partner. Kravitz is committed to his health, frequently visiting the gym and maintaining a strict diet. He admits, “There’s a lot of hard work and discipline in being healthy for me.”

Despite his vow of celibacy, Kravitz remains a sex symbol in his sixties, but he doesn’t let the attention affect him. He stays true to his beliefs and his promise, showing that even a rock star can embrace a life of discipline and spiritual growth.
