Lenny Kravitz is rewriting the narrative of his storied life, veering away from the rockstar stereotype to embrace a newfound spiritual journey, which includes celibacy. 

Once synonymous with the rock 'n' roll excesses, including casual encounters, he now prioritizes a deeper connection over physical intimacy. 

This shift in perspective has roots in his family history; Kravitz was deeply affected by his father's infidelity, discovering that his father, NBC news producer Sy Kravitz, had been unfaithful to his actress mother, Roxie Roker, known for her role in The Jeffersons.

Kravitz's decision to abstain from dating and pursue a path of celibacy reflects a personal evolution, resonating with those who see him as the epitome of rock allure. 

In an interview with The Guardian, Lenny opened up about his personal journey, reflecting on how his father's behavior influenced his own relationships. 

Admitting that his father's prediction about his own fidelity proved sadly accurate after his marriage to actress Lisa Bonet ended in 1993, Kravitz shared, "He became right. 

After the marriage, I became more like him. I was becoming a player."
