Zoë Kravitz is a singer, actress and model. She is considered an icon of the new generation. She tried not to PR on the popularity of her parents, but the achievements of her parents still follow her. Her father is the famous musician Lenny Kravitz, and her mother is actress Lisa Bonet.
Zoe Kravitz's childhood and youth
The artist's date of birth is December 1, 1988. She was born in Los Angeles. Zoe really has a lot to be proud of. It is known that her paternal grandparents worked on television, and relatives from her mother's side realized themselves as musicians. On the merits of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet - you can not mention once again. They continue to shine on film sets and stage today.
When Zoe was very young, her parents decided to divorce. Divorce had no effect on her psychological state. She was not yet at the age when you can explore all the disadvantages of a "one-sided" upbringing.
In one of the interviews, the artist said that she lived in a little stress. Kravitz was afraid to let her parents down. In addition, she was closely followed by representatives of the media, so it was important for Zoe "not to mess up."
After the divorce, the girl was raised by her mother. Despite the fact that she tried to find an approach to Zoe, Lisa was strict with her. For example, she forbade watching TV, and only occasionally allowed her to turn on a tape recorder so that her daughter could listen to her favorite pieces of music.
Zoe Kravitz moving to Miami
Lenny Kravitz visited my daughter whenever possible. He tried to pamper her. The musician brought Zoe interesting toys and a lot of sweets. Despite the fact that Lenny did not often visit his daughter, they developed a good relationship. When the girl turned 11, her mother moved her to Miami.

Kravitz Jr. in her school years could not be called a complaisant child. She skipped classes, argued with teachers, had noisy parties, and once, she completely disappeared from the educational institution for a month. As it turned out, she and her father were vacationing in the Bahamas.
Alcohol and marijuana are another passion that prevented Zoe from doing well at school. She was also strained by the sidelong glances of her classmates, who disliked her for her Afro-Jewish origin.
At the age of 14, Zoe decided on a desperate act. She persuaded her father to leave Miami. Soon the Kravitz family settled in Los Angeles. The teenage girl strongly hoped that she would be more warmly received in the new place. But soon her hopes were dashed. Growing up was hard. She gained weight and felt like an outcast.
