Inside Bill Murray's relationship history as he begins 'dating' Milkshake singer Kelis

Bill Murray has shocked the world with rumours that he's dating singer Kelis.

The Ghostbusters star has kept the majority of his personal life private, including his two marriages, while working on hit Hollywood blockbusters.

The 72-year-old has worked on movies like Groundhog Day, Lost In Translation and Ghostbusters.

Behind the scenes, Bill has six children from his two marriages. His first marriage was to Margaret "Mickey" Kelly, a talent coordinator.

The couple were wed in an impromptu ceremony in 1981 at a Las Vegas chapel at 4:30 in the morning, a plan which Mickey didn't know until Bill started driving her out of California.

"I really was gonna pick a fight, and then I thought, 'Let's just do it,'" she told Rolling Stone. "He had this thing planned out. I thought, 'Aaaaah, go with it.'"

They went on to have two kids, Homer and Luke together before their separation. After being together for 15-years, the marriage came to an end after Bill had an affair with his second wife, Jennifer Butler.

Bill went on to have an 11-year marriage with Jennifer and the couple had four kids: Caleb, Jackson, Cooper, and Lincoln.

In 2008, Jennifer filed for a divorce on the grounds of Bill's alleged abuse and negligence. According to NBC News, she claimed he had hit her in the face and told her that she was "lucky he didn't kill her".

In response to the allegations, Bill's lawyer John McDougall said: "Bill Murray is deeply saddened by the breakup of his marriage with Jennifer.

“He and his wife made loving parents, and they are committed to the best interests of their children.”

Long before his marriages to Mickey and Jennifer, Bill was rumoured to have had a relationship with Gilda Radner and although it their romance was never confirmed, Bill made a sweet tribute to her after she sadly passed after a battle with ovarian cancer.

He told The Guardian : "Gilda was really an extraordinary and spectacular person. I never enjoyed making anyone laugh more than her. Never."

In 2014, Bill appeared to embrace single life, telling Vanity Fair that he couldn't "take care" of another relationship.

"Not to diminish a relationship with a woman but I can't take care of another relationship if I can't take care of the things I really need to take care of the most," he said.

Since then, he's been rumoured to have started dating Milkshake singer Kelis after the pair were spotted spending time together a series of festivals.
