In his decades-long career, Bill Murray has starred in some of Hollywood's most iconic movies. He's also known for his big brood, having welcomed six sons across two marriages. The 72-year-old actor has shared his children with ex-wife Margaret Kelly and second wife Jennifer Butler.
Butler and Murray tied the knot in 1997 after he divorced Kelly. They stayed married for over a decade and had four kids together before filing for divorce in 2008. In her divorce papers, she alleged that Bill had committed some heinous crimes, including physical abuse, drug addiction, and adultery. She also requested a restraining order against him.
In the years that followed their divorce, Bill kept his family out of the spotlight. The actor went on to star in some of his most critically acclaimed movies, including Lost in Translation and Ghostbusters. He also appeared in a number of popular comedies like Stripes, Tootsie, and Scrooged.
After their divorce, Butler was granted primary custody of the couple's four kids. She was allowed to keep their homes, and he was ordered to pay her a lump sum of $7 million.
Unfortunately, the mother of four passed away on January 19, 2021. The cause of her death was never publicly disclosed. Those who knew her will remember her as "a woman of principle and loyalty." Her family was left to mourn the loss of the talented costume designer. They were also grateful for the love and support she showed their children throughout her life.
