Unexpectedly: The lovebirds have reportedly been “close for a while” after meeting in the States
What the…? Fans of popular culture took to social media in disbelief at the romance
The lovebirds have reportedly been “close for a while” after meeting in the United States, following the passing of her husband, Mike Mora, from stomach cancer, aged just 37, last year.
Last weekend, the actor was spotted watching some of his new girlfriend’s most recent shows, including her latest “from the side of the stage in London,” according to The American sun.
The publication revealed that a friend of the pair said they “met before in the States, which got people in the industry talking, and they’re now meeting in London while they’re both here.”
“They clearly clicked,” the insider added. “They were both seen in the same hotel and he saw her perform several times before going to Mighty Hoopla (in South London).”
The source pointed out that Murray was recently mourning the loss of his ex-wife, Jennifer Butler, whom he split from in 2008 after more than a decade together, following her unexpected death in 2021.
During their relationship, the father-of-six and Butler welcomed four sons: Caleb, 30, Jackson, 27, Cooper, 26, and Lincoln, 22.
Meanwhile, Kelis welcomed her first child, Knight, 14, with ex-husband, Nas, in July 2009.

She also shared her youngest children — Shepherd, eight, and Galilee, two — with her late husband Mike Mora, who passed away in March 2022 after a six-month battle with stage four stomach cancer.
Murray and Kelis are said to have been in touch about their “shared relatively recent deaths.”
“Whatever it is that brought them together, and as unlikely as it may seem, they are both single and having fun despite the pretty big age difference,” the insider claimed.
