Can an asterisk be escaped in PlantUML text?

Asterisk can be used in UML to show multiplicity, e.g., of messages in a sequence diagram.

(Or is this not really compatible with the specification? Or maybe deprecated in favor of the "loop"?)

I have not figured out a way of using an asterisk in the beginning of a message label without it being interpreted as a bullet.

You can use the tilde as escape character:

Alice -> Bob : ~* ok
