Ghostbusters actor Bill Murray and 'Milkshake' singer Kelis are reportedly dating.

The pair have been spotted together in photos shared on social media, leading to speculation they're in a romance which has seemingly been confirmed by an unnamed source speaking to the Sun.

"They've met up in the [US] before which got people in the industry talking, and now are meeting up in London while they're both here. They've clearly hit it off,"the source said.

"They were both seen at the same hotel, and he's been to watch her perform several times before he went to Mighty Hoopla.

"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."

There's just shy of 30 years between the two, with Kelis being 43 and Murray aged 72.

It's reported the two have bonded over the passing of their respective partners.

The reports the pair have been supposedly dating has sent some on the internet into meltdown, with many commenting: "Why?"

"Kelis and WHOMST?!" one Twitter user commented.

"Is this the old McDonald that's been on Kelis' farm all this time???” another said.

"LMAO WHY IS KELIS DATING BILL MURRAY?!" someone else tweeted.

"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 posted online.
