Bill Murray’s Failed Marriages
While the Golden Globe winner is a Hollywood veteran, his personal life seems to be quite shabby in comparison. Bill got married a total of two times, but both matrimonies ended in divorce.
His first wife was Mickey Kelley; the pair got married on 25th January 1981. Then, they extended their brood to four with the arrival of two children, Homer Murray (1982) and Luke Murray (1985).
But, even the arrival of children couldn’t hold Bill’s married life together. Thus, with a heavy heart, the couple ended their marriage on 29th January 1994 after 13 long years.
Fast forward to 1997; the veteran actor got married to his Groundhog Day co-star, Jennifer Butler on 4th July 1997. The loved-up pair’s companionship was going well. While Bill was reaching heights in his career, the actor’s doting wife supported him through and through the whole journey.
Bill became a happy man as he fathered four children with his second wife. His four sons are Caleb James(b. January 11, 1993), Jackson William ( 1995), Cooper Jones (1997) and Lincoln Darius Murray ( 2001).
Sadly, issues like alcoholism and domestic abuse clouded his second marriage.
While Jennifer accused Bill of indulging in alcohol, reportedly she was also not immune to the charms of the addictive drinks. Allegedly, she was known to drink to oblivion and mistreat her children. After a decade of a problematic relationship, Jennifer filed for divorce on 12th May 2008. The marrige was finally dead after judges ruled the legal end of their marriage on 13 June of the same year.
