Kelis has brought all the boys to the beach with her latest thirst trap.
In a series of photos posted to Instagram on Saturday (June 10), the “Milkshake” ingenue can be seen enjoying the waves and frolicking in the sun as she wears a barely-there plaid string bikini. In the last frame, Kelis can be seen jumping off a boat’s platform and into the deep blue sea below.
“I’m a beach bum,” she wrote in the caption.
Fans and fellow industry folks alike showed their support in the comment section, including podcaster Tanika Ray and entrepreneur Abiola Oke. Check out the pics below.
The U.S. Sun reported that Kelis and the Ghostbusters star were spotted together at her recent Mighty Hoopla set in London. Murray has also been seen following the “Milkshake” singer around at several of her other shows.
Sources close to the situation said the two were also seen at the same hotel and had been “getting close for a while” since meeting back in the States.
The rumored couple even took a snap together.
The news immediately set social media on fire, primarily due to their age gap of 29 years.
“Kelis and WHOMST?!” one Twitter user commented, while another jokingly said: “Is this the old McDonald that’s been on Kelis’ farm all this time???”
“LMAO WHY IS KELIS DATING BILL MURRAY?!” someone else tweeted.
Another person brought Murray’s Chicago Cubs fandom into the discussion, writing: “i will not believe kelis and bill murray are together until i see her at wrigley field.”
However, some folks didn’t seem too over-enthusiastic about the news. “I’m just going to assume that ‘Kelis is dating Bill Murray’ headline is just a prank,” another user tweeted.
“My industry has broken me so much that I saw the Kelis/Bill Murray news, and my first thought was, ‘I wonder which agency is behind this,’” someone else commented.
It’s been reported that the two bonded over the passing of their subsequent partners — Kelis’ second husband, Mike Mora, died in March last year, while Murray’s estranged wife, Jennifer, passed away in 2021.
