Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford have split up after 7 months of dating.
“We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends,” a representative for Eilish broke the news. A representative for Rutherford confirmed, saying, “All cheating rumours are false. Both are currently single.”
They were first rumoured to be dating in October last year when photos of them eating at Crossroads Kitchen in West Hollywood surfaced online. In no time at all, Eilish made the relationship Instagram official by sharing their Halloween photos on social media.
While Billie Eilish was dressed as a baby, Rutherford was an elderly man. Fans believed that this could be in reference to their 10-year age gap. They made their red carpet debut at LACMA Art + Film Gala 2022, where they wore coordinating Gucci pyjamas.
Eilish spoke about her relationship in an interview, stating, “It’s really cool, and I’m really excited and I’m really happy about it. I managed to get my life to a point where I not only was known by a person that I thought was the hottest f****g f****r alive, but pulled his a**! Are you kidding me? Can we just [get a] round of applause for me … thank you, Jesse Rutherford, everyone! I pulled his a–. All me. I did that s–t.”
Prior to this, Rutherford was in a six-year relationship with entrepreneur Devon Lee Carlson, and Eilish was linked to actor Matthew Tyler Vorce.
