Bill Murray is reportedly dating Kelis. According to the U.S Sun, the 72-year-old Groundhog Day actor and the 43-year-old “Milkshake” hitmaker are an item. The outlet claims Bill hung out and watched her perform from backstage at a show in London this past weekend — and that’s not the first time he’s been to her shows, either. Sources for the outlet reportedly said Sources they were together at the same hotel in the area and added that the duo has been “getting close for a while.” The outlet claims they met back in the U.S.

“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 said. “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.”
