UPDATE: Bill Murray beats his wife

May 29th, 2008 // 102 Comments

Bill Murray’s wife of more than 10 years, Jennifer Murray, filed a complaint in court against the actor. She alleges he physically assaulted her and suffers from severe drug and alcohol addictions. She’s citing the complaint as grounds for divorce and is also seeking to have their prenuptial agreement nullified because of Bill’s abusive behavior. The Charleston Post and Courier reports:

According to the complaint, Jennifer Murray moved into a Sullivan’s Island home in 2006 with the couple’s four children due to her husband’s “adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behavior, physical abuse, sexual addictions and frequent abandonment.”

Jennifer also provided details of the times Bill assaulted her, including an incident where he allegedly hit her in the face and then told her she was lucky he didn’t kill her:

It was at the Sullivan’s Island home, according to the complaint, that Murray allegedly abused his wife in November 2007. The six-page court filing says Murray “hit his wife in the face and then told her she was ‘lucky he didn’t kill her.’ “

It’s always awesome when jackass celebrity wife-beaters suddenly think they’re nefarious super-villains: “Yeah, see, I could kill you and get away with it. So wise up, yeah.” Let’s take a moment to thank O.J. for this advance in domestic abuse. And by thank I mean hope he gets herpes. In the meantime, how big of an A-hole is Bill Murray? Assuming any of this turns out to be true, I’m leaning towards colossal.

UPDATE: TMZ has a statement from Bill Murray’s lawyer: “Bill Murray is deeply saddened by the dissolution of his marriage to Jennifer. Mr. and Mrs. Murray remain loving parents, committed to the best interests of their children. Mr. Murray asks that the public respect his family’s privacy at this difficult time.” I’m not a lawyer, but shouldn’t they have denied the allegations?

    hmm, i love donuts.

  8. Auntie Kryst

  10. jack

    i hope he puts the screws to that gold digging bitch. bill you my boy.

  11. Kimbo Slice

    She wants the pre-nup voided, case closed.

    I wonder if Bill would consider a Pay per view match with me for the UFC?

  12. Nev

    Yeah NOT BUYING IT. Bitch probably trying to take his cash n run. She knows shes fucked if she just leaves because of the prenup. So whats she do? Charge him with Phys abuse? Its all shes got.

  13. Holy Hector

    Reeks of vengeful BS…

  14. Jason

    I surprised the Superficial writer would automatically believe Murray’s wife. I mean, the guys a comic genius, and his wife could just be another disgruntled, money-grubbing whore, for all we know. Does she have any evidence of his abuse? Any 911 calls, or photos of bruises? Come on, writer, get on the right side of these stories!

      i like that you’re argument is “c’mon guys! bill murray is FUNNY and he SEEMS SO NICE IN ALL THOSE MOVIES HE ACTED IN”

      that’s, wow, that’s so brilliant and insightful i might throw up.

  15. restingonlaurels

    what’s wrong with all of you mysogynists? you don’t know anything about this situation and yet you immediately call her a whore and a bitch! ignorant idiots have to comment on everything.

  16. remember

    heather mills claimed phys abuse at first too

  17. wifebeater

    What do all abused women have in common? They all had it coming!

  18. Ornot

    I’m guessing it’s more like this:

    If I make up a bunch of crap I can get the divorce I want, a book deal and maybe even nullify the prenuptial agreement.

  19. veggi

    for fucks sake, bill, what’s with the mustache??

  20. jbl

    b… just wants that prenup money.

    There are never claims or reports until someone want alimony. Then the claims of abuse and addiction always come out. dumb ho.

    @17 really? Thats stupid. Paul is less likely to beat his wife than Jesus.

  21. quake

    She’s lying.

  22. Dianne

    I lived in Charleston for four years. Bill Murray is one of the owners of the minor league baseball team down there, and he’s in town all the time. Every single person I know who’s met him says he’s a gigantic asshole. So for me, wife-beater and alcoholic ain’t a stretch.

  23. monkeyfightclub

    maybe if she listened he wouldn’t have to hit her.

  24. Corlyss

    Where’s the police report from this happening? Or medical records? If there’s no proof, then it really didn’t happen. I hate women who cry abuse just because they want something out of the marriage at its end, like a large chunk of cash she could get if the prenup is thrown out.

    Also, there is no medical proof that marijuana is addictive. It’s very fun and nice to have, but no one actually “needs” it. There are no addictive qualities in it like cigarettes or alcohol. He might be an alcoholic, but a weed addict I think not.

  25. some man hating chick

    What man does NOT have sexual addictions and violent behavior? They’re all fucks. We don’t know what happened here though. There is no sense in speculation. However, if I were to shake my magic 8 ball (of crack) it would say “ask again later”

  26. Ted Mosby

    She makes it sound like Bill was channeling his Caddyshack character.

  27. I rock your shit

    Glad to see another woman getting the treatment she deserves.

    Personally I would have went farther.

  28. ramalamadingdong

    #28 – you must be black.

  29. NObama

    mike oxhbig, congrats on first comment. i like your homepage too. is that miley cyrus in that pic? isn’t that illegal?

  30. If one of her demands is to invalidate the prenup, all of her statements are extremely suspicious with no police reports, no hospital visits and no witnesses. Why not give the guy a break until there’s actual proof?

  31. Lexoka

    I really hope it’s not true :-/

  32. erica

    Why does she need to nullify the prenup?? Not understanding the cause-effect relationship here.

  33. To all you shitheads who said “bitch had it coming” or “must be a money grubbing whore” or whatever to that affect…HOPE YOU ALL GET CERVICAL CANCER AND DIE..

    And if he didn’t hit her, I still hope you all die.

  34. NObama

    he should roll up that prenup and bitch-slap her ass with it. the way i see it she had it coming

  35. Spongebob Gangsta

    Maybe her REAL name is Ned Ryerson
    Phil?? Phil Connors!! Ned?! *punch*
    Am I right or am I right??

    Am I right??

    Am I right??

  36. My cock called 911 once because I beat and sexually abused it.

  37. D

    I’m not going to say she had it coming, but I am gonna say that after his brilliant performance in Rushmore, he’s earned the right to beat this living shit out anyone he pleases. Especially a money grubbing whore who totally had it coming.

  38. Barely Stearn

    Shoulda’ ran the bitch over with a golf cart!

  39. Rach

    Of course, people side with the stars instead of having sympathy for the abused spouse. Bill Murray is a jackass who we see quite frequently here in Charleston. She’s not money hungry, but her kids need a sense of security to know that they do have a house to go home to and an education that is worth speaking of which in SC means going to a private school. And hello, do you want this guy to be on the news for mentally and physically abusing his kids. What if he exposed his kids to the drugs and drinking. Wouldn’t you want to help them out of the situation as well. So flippin’ cry about it that he has to separate from his money after co-owning the Riverdogs, I think he can afford it.

    Key phrase here…..

    “is also seeking to have their prenuptial agreement nullified”.

    cha-ching – $ -$ -$


  41. Leslie

    Here are the scenarios I see:

    She married him and thought it would be more fun, so now she wants to play that card.

    She really really loved him even though all the signs were there and now because whining and being a dumbass is perfectly acceptable in women, she’s changed her mind (the pool boy probably had something to do with that) and would like to get some attention and money.

    I’m a woman and this crap offends me. If you’ve been with someone for ten years and you really have endured abuse then shut the hell up, get some therapy and get on with your life. It’s not like the twenties when there were no places to go.

  42. THE1DG

    Either way ya go with this story… Its Bill Murray… its believable… Although perhaps unfortunate because his mastery of all things hedonistic leave me awe stricken…

    I have heard he’s known for leaving 100%+ tips for the waitstaff… and surely a man this generous wouldnt deprive his wife of elbow or two when she gets in the way of his hookers..

  43. Uncle Eccoli

    Little Miss Perfect over here…

    I’m not buying this, either.

  44. veggi

    hahahaha!! It’s soooo funny to beat women!! hahahaha!! For fucks sake people..

    new post fish. please!! This is depressing..

  45. he should have given her a pink sock

  46. Barack Obama

    Sorry, I’m still thinking… How can I blame democrats again for this one?

  47. Kim Lard-ass-ian

    Ugkly fuck like this with wrinkled pockmarked skin – well fuck course he is a demon.

  48. Kim Lard-ass-ian

    Ugkly fuck like this with wrinkled pockmarked skin – well fuck course he is a demon.

  49. Lofat

    All of this is probably made-up whorishness designed to get the prenup nullified. God, what is with you lazy bitches? Make your own fuckin money whores….
