Rumors are circulating that Jenny Lewis and Bill Murray are dating after the indie pop star joined Murray at his Rock the Kasbah release party Tuesday night in New York. A report from Page Six reported following that the two are now a romantic item and soon Twitter was ablaze with further speculation, congratulations and new couple nicknames.

The party also included Lady Gaga and her fianc√© Taylor Kinney, Kate Hudson, Naomi Campbell, Zooey Deschanel and Bruce Willis, who was seen singing and dancing with the band onstage. 

It's understandable how people might want the former Rilo Kiley frontwoman and the comedy icon to get together, given the fandom that surrounds each of them. But the two are longtime friends, having been spotted together a number of other times recently, including the Grateful Dead's Fare Thee Well shows, playing golf and participating in the Poets House annual walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Murray even called our Lewis at his San Diego Comic-Con appearance in July.
