Apparently, Bill Murray loves milkshakes.
So it would seem with the report that the 72-year-old former Ghostbuster is reportedly dating singer Kelis, famous for the song “Milkshake.”
It is unclear how the two met and apparently became friendly, but Murray was spotted at the Mighty Hoopla festival in South London last weekend taking in Kelis’s set. They also have allegedly met up in the United States, leading many to believe they are in a May/December romance. Check this out.
Sources close to the pair told the US Sun that they were also seen together at the same hotel and have been “getting close for a while” after first meeting in the US.
A friend reportedly told the outlet, “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.
Both the “Caddyshack” legend and the singer are single, and both have had recent tragedies that they have apparently bonded over. Kelis’ husband, photographer Mike Mora, died recently from stomach cancer.

Murray has dealt with his own share of drama recently, as production on his most recent movie was shut down due to allegations of inappropriate conduct on his part.
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.”
However, the accusations don’t end there.
He was also accused of being “touchy” with several women during filming for Aziz Ansari’s movie.
“He was very hands-on touchy, not in any personal areas, but put an arm around a woman, touched her hair, pulled her ponytail — but always in a comedic way.
“It is a fine line and everybody loves Bill, but while his conduct is not illegal, some women felt uncomfortable and he crossed a line.”
It is emblematic of our times that someone took offense to harmless teasing, but Murray is from a different generation. He addressed the situation.
I had a difference of opinion with a woman I’m working with. I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way,” the actor told CNBC at the time, addressing claims that his alleged “inappropriate behavior” is what caused production of the film to be suspended.
Kelis has been married twice before. Once to the rapper Nas, who she accused of physical and emotional abuse, and to the late photographer Mora, who she had two children with. She also shares a child with Nas.
For Bill Murray, the track record is considerably longer.
Murray was first married to Margaret Kelly from 1981 to 1996.
The “Lost in Translation” star moved on with Jennifer Butler. However, their 11-year marriage ended in May 2008 when she accused him of infidelity, domestic abuse and marijuana and alcohol addiction.
It is a strange combination, no doubt. However, if two single people want to hang out and date, does it matter if there is more than a 30-year difference in age? It depends on who you ask, but Bill Murray loves some milkshakes for now. Let’s just hope he doesn’t become lactose intolerant.
