Contrary to popular belief, Bill Nye and SZA were not romantically involved. When the dating rumors about the Kill Bill actor and the singer initially surfaced at the end of 2022, SZA used her social media account to clarify that there was no relationship between them.
The actor’s and singer’s love life came to light as a result of the notion that the two were having an affair. Bill Nye is currently married, in contrast to SZA who has dated a number of men in the past, including famous people like Drake and Doja Cat. Here’s a look at his romantic history and the supposed connection to SZA.
Did SZA Date Bill Nye The Science Guy?
No, SZA did not date Bill Nye The Science Guy at any point in time. 33-year-old SZA, and Bill who is now 67 years old, first got people wondering if they were dating when someone on Twitter with the account, The Notorious J.O.V., shared their photos in December 2022. The tweet included a caption asking why no one revealed that the two had been dating for some time.
Another thing that fueled the rumor was SZA’s Kill Bill, a song from her album, SOS. According to people who are very familiar with the song, it was hardly possible that the “Kill My and Bill Nye rhyme” would be a coincidence.
From Twitter, the rumor went viral on TikTok where people joked that SZA’s popular song, Kill Bill, was written with Bill in mind. The song is about having her revenge on an old flame. Many people on both Twitter and Tiktok believed the story, but as it turned out to be false.
SZA, born Solána Imani Rowe, took to her Instagram, where she reacted to the rumor with a joke. She posted “To hell .. yall gotta go to hell,” before adding several crying emojis. That seemed to settle it for netizens as the story slowly died out.
SZA Was Single When The Claim Started, And Bill Was Married
It was rumored that SZA was dating Bill Nye, but at the time of the rumor, she was not in a relationship while Bill was already married. Prior to the rumor, SZA was reportedly dating Kehlani in 2021 and had previously been in relationships with Drake in 2008, Doja Cat, Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar, and The Weeknd. On the other hand, Bill Nye was already in his second marriage when the rumor surfaced and he and his wife seemed to be doing well, as they had just gotten married in the same year.
Although the claim of a possible relationship going on between SZA and Bill Nye got the singer to come out and set the records straight, neither Bill nor his wife had anything to say about it.
Truth About SZA And Bill Nye’s Relationship
The truth about the relationship between SZA and Bill is that they had never dated. The American singer put all speculations about that to rest, but one thing she did not do was define the nature of her relationship with Bill Nye.
That said, it is believed that they have been very close friends for a while, in spite of their age difference of more than 3 decades. The photo of the two that went viral and got fans to ask if they dated, was actually shared by Bill in 2017. He accompanied the photo with the caption, “miss you too, SZA.”
Before Bill’s post, SZA had also shared a photo of them together. In her post, she revealed that she missed Bill and the time when people were nicer. Apart from these, the two were never pictured together.
Is Bill Nye Married?
Yes, Bill Nye is married. The Science Guy, who was 66 years old at the time, walked down the aisle with American journalist Liza Mundy, who was 61. The simple ceremony was held in Washington D.C. at the Enid A. Haupt Garden of the Smithsonian Institute. The ceremony, which had not too many guests, was officiated by actor Robert Picardo.
While Bill, born William Sanford Nye, came to the limelight as a science communicator and TV personality, his wife is a journalist and writer who has published several books, including Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II in 2017. She has also published her works on platforms such as The Guardian, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and The New York Times.
The couple now lives in Los Angeles, where they continue to pursue their separate careers. Needless to say, Bill and Liza do not have any kids together, although Bill had a child from his previous relationship.
Bill Nye Has Been Married Twice
Bill Nye is currently married to Liza Mundy. While it is not clear if it Is Liza’s first marriage, it is common knowledge that it’s not the first for Bill. He was previously married to performer, producer, journalist, and classical singer Blair Tindall. The two got married on February 3, 2006, in Los Angeles.
Unfortunately, the union was not to last as only seven weeks later, it came to an end. Reports have it that the science educator left the relationship after the State of California decided the marriage was invalid. Reasons why the relationship ended after the declaration was never made known.
It soon emerged that the former couple had a major fallout. Because of this, Tindall broke into Bill’s home and made away with various things, including a laptop which she used to impersonate him and send out defamatory emails. Bill Nye got a restraining order against Tindall, but that was not enough to stop her as she later went against it.
This led to a penalty of $57,000, which she was made to pay Nye in legal expenses in 2009. Three years later, they were back in court after Nye claimed his former wife had refused to pay the fine.
Despite their tumultuous marriage, Charity Nye was born to Bill Nye and his former wife, Grammy-nominated singer Bliar Tindall, in April 2003. Now 20 years old, Charity is not a public figure and therefore, information about her personal life is not readily available. Unfortunately, in 2023, Bliar Tindall passed away at the age of 63 due to chronic ethanol consumption. At the time of her death, she was engaged to American photographer Chris Sattlberger.
