Kelis Responds to Fan Who Asked About Dating Rumors With Bill Murray: No, I wouldn’t even bother

The allegations that Kelis and Bill Murray are an item are being treated with humor by Kelis.

On Saturday, an Instagram fan asked the “Milkshake” singer, 43, if she is dating actor Robert Redford, 72.

“Ma’am, would you mind addressing these claims against Bill Murray?! Cause, hey! Where is he going with all those stuff?! after receiving a message from the user, Kelis replied “lol no babe, I wouldn’t bother at all.”

The Sun reported earlier this week that Kelis is seeing the Ghostbusters actor less than a year after the death of her husband, Mike Mora, from stomach cancer.

On June 3 at London’s Mighty Hoopla music festival, Murray was spotted taking in a performance by Kelis, 13 years after his divorce from second wife Jennifer Butler.

PEOPLE’s request for response from Kelis and Murray’s representatives went unanswered for some time.

In the year following her husband’s death, Kelis has spoken candidly about her sorrow. An poignant Instagram post commemorating “exactly a year” after his passing was published by her in March. Kelis is the mother of two children, a girl, Galilee, 2, and a boy, Shepherd, 7, with her ex-husband Nas.

When it comes to my loved ones, I tend to keep to myself. There is no doubting the influence and change my husband’s death has brought into my life,” she stated. “People often want to know where I began my adventure. This is a short summary of a much more extensive discussion about how the issues we faced here forced me to learn how inextricably linked the body, mind, and emotions are and how you cannot effectively treat one without the other.
