Her “Milkshake” may bring all the boys to court, but Kelis’ alleged romance with actor Bill Murray has curious followers who are blowing up her Instagram over just one.

The singer, who shared photos and videos over the weekend from her summer vacation in Greece, has finally broken her silence on her relationship with the Oscar-nominated actor. Spoiler alert: don’t expect a clear answer.

“Ma’am, would you respond to these Bill Murray allegations?!? Because the fuck! What the fuck is he doing with all this?!? 😂😂😂,” one follower commented on the bikini pics in Kelis seaside.

She replied on Sunday: “lol no baby, I wouldn’t bother at all.”

Rumors of the “Millionaire” singer’s romance with Murray first surfaced last week when the US Sun reported that the duo had been “getting close for a while.” Kelis, 43, and Murray, 72, were seen together at the Mighty Hoopla Festival in London in late May, where the singer performed. Murray, who was accused in 2022 of inappropriate on-set behavior, is shooting the new “Ghostbusters” film across the pond.

The alleged relationship sent Twitter users into a frenzy last week, with some joking that the star encounters mattered as much as former President Donald Trump’s federal indictment on Thursday.

Shocking as the rumor may be to some, The Sun also reported that the actor and singer have bonded over recent personal losses. Murray mourned the loss of costume designer and ex-wife Jennifer Butler, who died in 2021 at age 57. He shared four sons with Butler.

The cookbook author had been married to photographer Mike Mora since 2014 and they shared two children. He was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer in 2021 and died in March 2022 at age 37.

Kelis seems aware of the buzz, responding to another Instagram comment that “everyone is stupid and will believe anything” about the romance rumor, according to Page Six.

Whether celebrities are an object or not, Kelis said “the best part is that we’re both blessed and rich and happy.”
