"They are dating. He cares about her. He's in a great place, working on Fast X," states an insider for the site. "He's quite busy and he's in a good place."
Another source said to be close to both Momoa and González added, "They're both busy with work but are having fun together. It's nothing serious yet."

Jason Momoa apologizes for Vatican City Sistine Chapel Controversy
About the controversy involving Vatican City's Sistine Chapel, Jason Momoa recently filmed Fast X in Italy where he plays the villain, and while there paid for a visit to the Sistine Chapel and posted photos and videos while inside on his Instagram which saw a lot of negative comments amd reactions from people, as it is forbidden to take images and video inside the Sistine Chapel.
"I just also wanted to say, if you ever felt that I disrespected your culture, it wasn’t my intention," said Momoa to Just Jared. "I came here when I was 19 or 20 to experience the Sistine Chapel. I’ve always wanted to and now that I can, I gave a wonderful donation to bring my friends and crew because we only had a couple days off to experience these places. And then I found people wanted to take pictures with me, which is very odd, during a trip to the Vatican with all this wonder and they want to take pictures with me, which I don’t get, but regardless, I did."
Momoa continued, "I was very respectful and I asked for permission from what I thought, would be okay. I would never want to do anything to disrespect someone’s culture. If I did, I apologize. It was not my intention. I paid to have that private moment and gave a nice donation to the church. I love you. I’m sorry if I offended you.”
