Lenny Kravitz has revealed the reason why Lisa Bonet was let got from the TV sitcom A Different World. The 90s sitcom was a spin-off from The Cosby Show based on Denise Huxtable's (Bonet) life at college.

In his new memoir, Let Love Rule, the 57-year-old claims Lisa was fired after she announced she was pregnant with their daughter, Zoë.

According to the singer, producer Debbie Allen pitched the idea that the character could fall pregnant in the show, but Bill Cosby squashed the idea and said Lisa Bonet is pregnant, but Denise Huxtable is not, reports ET Canada.

Lisa was then axed from the show but went on to return to The Cosby Show after Zoë was born. She left the show in 1991.
