According to Bonets ex-husband, Lenny Kravitz, her departure was due to her irreconcilable relationship with Bill Cosby because she was pregnant with their daughter. Bonet and the shows producer, Debbie Allen, called Cosby in for a meeting and he allegedly walked in saying, Youre here to tell me youre pregnant, arent you? seemingly aware of the elephant in the room. Advertisement Debbie reportedly tried to fit the pregnancy in the storyline but when Cosby got back to Bonet on his decision he said, Lisa Bonet is pregnant, but Denise Huxtable is not. As a result, she was pulled and the show went on. Lisa was reportedly allowed to return after the birth of Zoe Kravitz, but she left in 1991 citing creative differences. Lenny Kravitzreports that Lisas relationship with Bill was tense and ultimately untenable after he gave her the boot.
