Billie Eilish, the 21-year-old singer who conquered the world with her songs such as Bad Guy, Ocean Eyes and Bury a Friend, is single again. After spending 7 months with singer-songwriter Jesse Rutherford, they have decided to part ways.
Rumors are circulating that it has to do with their big age difference.
Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford have split
The rumors had been circulating for a while after Billie appeared alone at the Met Gala earlier this month, but yesterday it was officially confirmed: Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford have split. Billie’s rep confirmed this to news website Page Six: “We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends“. The representative also immediately made it clear that neither of them would have cheated in the relationship. The reason for the break-up is still unclear.
The cute announcement of the relationship
Billie revealed to Vanity Fair in October last year that they were dating after the two were spotted kissing. “Yeah, I do have a boyfriend now and it’s really cool. And I’m really excited and happy about it. I managed to get my way to a point in my life where I was not only known by a person that I thought was the hottest fucking fucker alive, but pulled his ass. Are you kidding me? Can we just round of applause for me? Jesse Rutherford everyone. I pulled his ass“, she said in the interview. Also curious about the super cute answer from Billie, who was still in love at the time? The part starts at minute 15:21.
Despite the news of the break up is probably sad to share for the ex-couple, many fans are happy that the two have put an end to their relationship. Not because they are now available again in the dating market, but because of their large 10-year age difference.
On Halloween, shortly after the announcement of the relationship, the couple dealt with the criticism about their ages in a witty way. They dressed up as a baby and an old man, as the two were also cartoonishly portrayed in the media.
