I’m not sure what in the hell is happening here, but Kelis, the woman who probably hates Renaissance so much right now, and Lucy Liu’s former thorn in her side, Bill Murray, are dating. I guess Kelis’ milkshake brings all the Bills to the yard. Yes, these two don’t make sense to me either, and not because of the age difference (Kelis is 43, and Bill is 72). Mainly because it’s a random pairing that I don’t think anyone saw coming. However, sources close to the couple say they’ve been getting to know each other for a while. And recently, while Kelis was performing in London, they took a picture together looking like co-workers after a free dinner with too many drinks. Which only proves that this love is real.
Bill is currently in London filming another movie in the Ghostbusters franchise (yes, they’re letting him onto film sets again). Kelis is currently on tour in the UK and Europe. And according to The Sun, Kelis’ milkshake must contain a few drops of ectoplasm because it sent Bill running to her yard to begin the
latest greatest love story ever told. Sources say that they’ve bonded over losing loved ones recently. Kelis’ husband, Mike Mora, died last year from stomach cancer at only 37. Bill lost his older brother Ed in 2020, and his estranged wife, Jennifer Butler, died in 2021.
Sources say the pair were also together at the same hotel, and have been “getting close for a while” after first meeting in their native US.
They have reportedly bonded since Kelis’s second husband died in March last year, while Bill’s estranged wife passed away in 2021.
Father-of-six Bill was pictured during Kelis’s set at the Mighty Hoopla festival in Brockwell Park, South London.
The pair also posed for a cosy snap backstage.
I’m sure Kelis is doing this to have a live Scarecrow for the farm and a built-in Santa Claus for her kids this Christmas. But a nosy bitch close to the couple named “friend” is spilling all of the delicious tea for a fee to The Sun, and they claim Bill and Kelis’ relationship is official.
A friend said: “They’ve met up in the States before which got people in the industry talking, and now are meeting up in London while they’re both here. They’ve clearly hit it off.
“They were both seen at the same hotel, and he’s been to watch her perform several times before he went to Mighty Hoopla.
“But they’ve also both shared relatively recent bereavements and have that common bond between them.
“Whatever it is that has brought them together, and however unlikely it seems, they are both single and are having fun despite the fairly big age gap.”
Well, there you have it. Your brand new reason to believe in love again; Kelis and…Bill Murray? And now Kelis will be entering her own Groundhog Day era where she wakes up every morning, looks over at Bill snoring soundly with his teeth in a jar of Polident, and wonders if everything was just a dream. Until he begins waking up singing, I Got You, Babe. Then she’ll realize this is her life now.
