Crooner Kelis, 43, Dating Veteran Actor Bill Murray, 72, After Whirlwind Romance

Veteran Hollywood superstar Bill Murray has lighted an improbable romance with ‘Milkshake’ songster Kelis — who is almost 30 years his juvenile.

The ‘Ghostbusters’ actor, 72, eyed the mother of three, 43, perform from the side of the stage in London last weekend – having also been spotted at her other recent concerts.

According to sources, the two love birds 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 connected since Kelis’s second spouse passed on in March last year, while Bill’s turned away missis died in 2021.

Bill, father-of-six was seen during Kelis’s set at the Mighty Hoopla festival in Brockwell Park, South London.

The pair also posed for a cosy snap backstage.

A pal disclosed: “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.”

Bill saw Kelis perform a string of tracks, including Millionaire, Bossy and Trick Me, as well as her big hit, featuring the line: “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.”

The veteran actor is presently filming a sequel to the classic Ghostbusters franchise in London, which sees him reprise his role as Peter Venkman alongside many of the original cast from the 1984 blockbuster.

Aside from acting, his second spouse Jennifer Butler accused him of domestic ­abuse and sex, marijuana and ­alcohol addictions — as well as ­infidelity — during their marriage.

The costume designer filed for divorce in 2008, but the couple are understood to have stayed in touch before her demise in 2021.

In the meantime, ‘New Yorker’ Kelis accused her first husband, hip hop mogul Nas, of physically and ­mentally abusing her throughout their five-year marriage.

The ‘I Hate You So Much’ hitmaker filed for divorce in 2009 while she was seven months pregnant with their son, Knight.

Later, Kelis clarified: “It was really dark. There was a lot of drinking.

“There was a lot of physical and mental abuse. And it just got to the point where . . . God is so good, because being pregnant — I probably would have stayed longer had I not been pregnant. Because I really did love him and we were married.”

Her second husband Mike Mora passed on of stomach cancer aged 37 last year.

Bill and Kelis’s unlikely relationship comes as Hollywood movie superstar Al Pacino, 83, is anticipating a baby with 29-year-old sweetheart Noor Alfallah.
