Is Amber Heard to blame for Jason and Lisa's split?

Though Jason Momoa and Amber Heard have an on-screen romance in the DCEU Aquaman film series, there is no evidence to suggest that they are, or ever were, a couple in real life. However, that doesn't stop pop culture enthusiasts from theorizing how Amber plays a part in Jason and Lisa's split.

In July 2021, The Things reported that Jason and Amber were incredibly flirty with each other on the set of Aquaman and Aquaman 2, and Lisa started feeling jealous and insecure. However, Lisa denied these rumors and debunked any rumors that Jason and Amber were romantically involved.

Others believe that Emilia Clarke is to blame for Jason and Lisa's separation.

Like Amber, Emilia had an on-screen romance with Jason Momoa on the beloved HBO series Game of Thrones. Since then, the pair have maintained a firm, loving friendship that sometimes leads fans to believe that the two were or are in a relationship. However, those are all rumors, and there is no evidence that an off-screen romance ever occurred.

Now, with Jason splitting up from Lisa, GOT fanatics are flocking to Twitter to express their desire to see Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen date in real life.

"Who else thinks Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke gonna get together now," one Twitter user wrote. Another added, "I don't know why people are excited about Jason Momoa being single because you know Emilia Clarke has first dibs." A third user commented, "Emilia Clarke has probably been comforting Jason Momoa for a while now."

Jason's last serious relationship was with 'Baywatch' co-star Simmone Mackinnon.

While Amber Heard and Emilia Clarke's relationships with Jason Momoa are strictly platonic, his relationship with Baywatch co-star Simmone Mackinnon was far from it.

According to Pop Sugar, the duo began dating in 199 after starring on the lifeguard series together. Jason and Simmone became engaged in 2004, but they split in 2006; not long after, Jason met Lisa, and the two began dating.
