Bill Murray has been in the headlines a lot recently!
But now, it’s his love life that’s dominating the news.
As he’s reportedly dating singer Kelis!
“You could sit me in a room until the heat death of the universe with the incomplete sentence ‘Singer Kelis, 43, is dating…’ written down and at no point would it even occur to me to end it like this,” one fan commented.
Another fan tweeted: “Didn’t expect her milkshake to bring this boy to the yard.”
“Kelis caught a Ghostbuster,” wrote another.
Scroll on to hear the crazy story!
Bill Murray has recently been in hot water.
Murray has long been one of Hollywood’s biggest fan-favorite actors, but recently things have turned sour.
Last year, reports began emerging of Murray acting inappropriately on the set of his new movie Being Mortal.
The news of the “inappropriate behavior” led to a complaint being made against the seventy-two-year-old, which led to the movie’s production being suspended.
At the time, reps for the actor stayed quiet.
But then, Murray himself broke his silence after sitting down with CNBC’s Becky Quick.
“I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way. The company, the movie studio, wanted to do the right thing, so they wanted to check it all out, investigate it.”
“And so they stopped the production.
“But as of now, we’re talking and we’re trying to make peace with each other,” he said.
“I think that’s where the real issue is, between our peace.
“We’re both professionals. We like each other’s work. We like each other, I think, and if you can’t really get along and trust each other, there’s no point in going further working together or making a movie as well,” Murray continued.
“The world is different than it was when I was a little kid. You know, what I always thought was funny as a little kid isn’t necessarily the same as what’s funny now.
“Things change and the times change, so it’s important for me to figure it out. And I think the most important thing is that it’s best for the other person. I thought about it, and if it’s not best for the other person, doesn’t matter what happens for me,” he finished.
Murray did not, however, mention what the “inappropriate behavior” was.
He added that he hopes to get the situation sorted soon.
Then, another star spoke out against Murray.
So, let’s take a look at all the celebs that have had an unsavory experience with Murray…
Geena Davis revealed a “bad” encounter with Murray on the set of the 1990 movie Quick Change…
Davis, sixty-six, told The Times: “That was bad. The way he behaved at the first meeting.”
“I should have walked out of that or profoundly defended myself, in which case I wouldn’t have got the part.
“I could have avoided that treatment if I’d known how to react or what to do during the audition,” she said.
“But, you know, I was so non-confrontational that I just didn’t.
“There’s no point in regretting things, and yet, here I was regretting. And yes, exactly, it wasn’t my fault,” Davis said.
She later details the uncomfortable experience with the star in the hotel room she stayed in during filming…
She claimed Murray “insisted” on using a massage device on her. “I said no multiple times, but he wouldn’t relent,” she said.
“I would have had to yell at him and cause a scene if I was to get him to give up trying to force me to do it; the other men in the room did nothing to make it stop.
I realized with profound sadness that I didn’t yet have the ability to withstand this onslaught — or to simply walk out.”
However, her comments left people divided…
“She is calling him out for bad behavior-clearing out the bad blood from her archives. She is a wonderful actress with a genius level IQ,” wrote one person.
“This is becoming far too common nowadays. Let’s hold onto something a co-worker did in 1985 in the hope to use it when I want a return to relevance,” another disagreed.
Then another star came forward with accusations against Murray.
Austin Powers and Avengers actor Seth Green.
Speaking on an episode of Good Mythical Morning, Green shared a disturbing past encounter with Murray.
“When I was nine years old, I did a spot on ‘Saturday Night Live,'” he began.
“So when I came to do that bit, I’m hanging out in the green room.
“Bill Murray was hosting the show and Bill Murray as everyone knows is great with kids,” Green continued.
“He saw me sitting on the arm of this chair and made a big fuss about me being in his seat.
“And I was like, ‘That is absurd. I am sitting on the arm of this couch. There are several lengths of this sofa. Kindly, F off,'” he said.
“And he was like, ‘That’s my chair.’ And then my mom goes, ‘You know, since he’s the Bill Murray you should maybe give him his seat.’
“And I go, ‘Are you this much of a jerk? You’re this rude to tell a nine-year-old to get out of your … what is this power play?'” Green said.
But then things got even worse…
“He picked me up by my ankles … he dangled me over a trash can and he was like, ‘The trash goes in the trash can!'” he explained.
“And I was screaming, screaming!
“And I swung my arms flailed wildly, full contact with his balls, full contact. He dropped me in the trash can, the trash can falls over. I was horrified,” Green revealed.
“I ran away, hid under the table in my dressing room and just cried.
“And [I] was like ‘Oh my god. I don’t want to do the show. I can’t believe this happened! I’ve never been so embarrassed in my life,'” he admitted.
Green said that Eddie Murphy and Tim Kazurinsky then tried to cover for Murray.
“They come back and come in my room. They’re like, ‘Hey, everybody knows Bill’s a d***, you know? He’s hosting the show. He’s probably really like nervous about it.
“You be a pro, right? The show must go on. You be a pro. You’re a pro, right?’ I was like, ‘I am a pro. I’m a pro,'” Green said.
And the allegations don’t end there.
Rob Schneider has also spoken out.
He shared on an episode of SiriusXM that Murray was difficult to work with while revealing that he hated SNL stars.
Schneider said: “I won’t say who the filmmaker was, but [he said] Bill Murray is gonna come, he’s gonna change the … dialogue.
“He’s gonna change things, and it’s gonna be great, but you don’t know who you’re gonna get, which Bill Murray you’re gonna get: The nice Bill Murray [or] you’re gonna get the tough Bill Murray.”
He added: “He’s super nice to fans. He wasn’t very nice to us. He wasn’t very — he hated us on Saturday Night Live when he hosted.
“Absolutely hated us. I mean, seething.”
Then there’s Lucy Liu…
The pair worked together on the set of Charlie’s Angels, and Liu recently opened up about her negative experience with the actor.
In an interview with LA Times’ Asian Enough podcast, she said that Murray repeatedly insulted her and her acting on set.
“I couldn’t believe that [the comments] could be towards me, because what do I have to do with anything majorly important at that time? I literally do the look around my shoulder thing, like, who is he talking to behind me?” she recalled.
“I say, ‘I’m so sorry. Are you talking to me?’ And clearly he was, because then it started to become a one-on-one communication.”
She said that “some of the language was inexcusable and unacceptable” and she was “not going to just sit there and take it.”
Liu added, “So, yes, I stood up for myself, and I don’t regret it. Because no matter how low on the totem pole you may be or wherever you came from, there’s no need to condescend or to put other people down.
“And I would not stand down, and nor should I have.”
Anjelica Huston has also shared her experience with Murray, and once again, it’s not good…
She told Vulture, that he was s**t to her during the filming of Life Aquatic.
Explaining that she was “really hurt” when Murray planned a cast dinner and invited everyone apart from her.
“We met again in Florence, because that movie was shot all over Italy, and we were doing a scene at Gore Vidal’s house in Ravello, and he said, ‘Hey, how’ve you been? I missed you.’ I said, ‘You’re full of s**t. You didn’t miss me.’ He looked all confused for a moment. He’s been a little nicer to me since.”
Then comes Harold Ramis’ allegations against Murray…
Their friendship fizzled out while working on the set of Groundhog Day, where Murray would allegedly show up late and throw tantrums.
Harold’s daughter Violet revealed more about their relationship in her book Ghostbuster’s Daughter: Life with My Dad, Harold Ramis.
“Bill was going through a difficult time in his personal life, and he and my dad were not seeing eye to eye on the tone of the film,” she wrote.
“They had a few arguments on set, including one in which my dad uncharacteristically lost his temper, grabbed Bill by the collar, and shoved him up against a wall.
“Eventually, Bill just completely shut my dad out… for the next twenty‑plus years.”
Then there’s Richard Dreyfuss who called Murray a “drunken Irish bully.”
They met on the set of What About Bob in 1991, and things clearly didn’t go down well.
He opened up on Role Recall, explaining that Murray almost left him severely injured…
“I didn’t talk about it for years,” Dreyfuss said. “Bill just got drunk at dinner. He was an Irish drunken bully, is what he was.
“He came back from dinner. He walked in, and I said, ‘Read this [script tweak], I think it’s really funny.’
“And he put his face next to me, nose-to-nose. And he screamed at the top of his lungs, ‘Everyone hates you! You are tolerated!'” he continued.
“There was no time to react,” he continued, “because he leaned back and he took a modern glass-blown ashtray.
“He threw it at my face from [only a couple feet away]. And it weighed about three-quarters of a pound. And he missed me. He tried to hit me. I got up and left,” Dreyfuss said.
However, now Murray is back in the headlines for a brand new reason.
As an unexpected romantic relationship has come to light …
Murray is reportedly dating singer Kelis!
The pair have also been spotted together backstage at jazz and soul festival Cross The Tracks.
One Twitter user joked: “This was NOT on my 2023 bingo card.”
Take a look at the candid snap right here.
