Kelis and Bill Murray are rumored to be in a romantic relationship. The “Bossy” singer performed at the Mighty Hoopla festival in South London last weekend, where the “Ghostbusters” actor was in attendance. Sources close to the pair revealed that they have been “getting close for a while” after first meeting in the US. The two were also spotted supporting each other at their respective performances. They were seen together at the same hotel, according to insiders.
The friend of the pair who spoke to the US Sun said that they have both shared bereavements and that they have a bond because of it. Despite the significant age gap, they are both single and having fun. The friend added that they have met up in the States before, which had people talking in the industry.
Kelis and Murray have not commented on the rumors. However, Page Six has reached out to their representatives for comment.
Murray’s alleged relationship with Kelis comes amidst allegations of inappropriate behavior on set. In April, filming on “Being Mortal” was suspended after Murray was accused of hurling a glass ashtray at co-star Richard Dreyfuss and threatening to “throw” the film’s female producer “across a parking lot.” He was also accused of being “touchy” with several women during filming for Aziz Ansari’s movie.
A source told Page Six that Murray was very hands-on touchy, but not in any personal areas. He would put an arm around a woman, touch her hair, or pull her ponytail, but always in a comedic way. While his conduct is not illegal, some women felt uncomfortable, and he crossed a line. Murray addressed the allegations in May, saying that he thought he did something funny.
Murray has been married twice. His first marriage was to Margaret Kelly from 1981 to 1996. He then married Jennifer Butler, but their 11-year marriage ended in May 2008 when she accused him of infidelity, domestic abuse, and marijuana and alcohol addiction.
Kelis was previously married to rapper Nas. In 2009, she filed for divorce after accusing him of emotionally and physically abusing her during their marriage. Kelis went on to marry Mike Mora in 2014. However, he passed away at age 37 last March after a battle with stage 4 stomach cancer. Kelis and the late photographer share two children: son Shepherd, 8, and daughter Galilee, 2. She is also the mother of son Knight, 13, with the rapper Nas.
