They’re over! Billie Eilish and The Neighbourhood’s Jesse Rutherford had a brief but public romance. Reps for the “Bad Guy” singer confirmed the news of their split to Page Six in May 2023, after less than one year of dating.

The ex-couple first officially kickstarted their relationship during “Sweater Weather” season, when Billie was caught kissing Jesse in October 2022. The couple went Instagram official after the Grammy-winning songstress posted a photo of the two dressed up for Halloween.

Following the news that Billie and Jesse were seeing one another, fans took to Twitter criticizing their over 10-year age gap. According to photos posted by a Jesse Rutherford fan account on Twitter, Billie and Jesse have known each other since 2017, when Billie was 15 and still on the rise as a musician. To respond to the criticism, Billie and Jesse dressed like a baby and an old man, respectively, on Halloween.

“Billie Eilish dating a man 6 years older than her older brother is gross in itself but the fact that they dressed up as a baby and an old man last night is just the icing on the cake fr,” said one fan on Twitter.


Prior to Jesse, Billie was dating Matthew Tyler Vorce in 2021, until Matthew confirmed their breakup in May 2022. For his part, Jesse was in a very public relationship with model and Wildflower Cases cofounder Devon Lee Carlson from 2015 to 2021. Together, they were elected “2019’s most 2019 couple” by GQ Magazine. However, multiple sources claimed the couple had split after six years of dating in November 2021. Nearly one year later, the breakup was confirmed by Devon in September 2022 on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast.

“I definitely want to keep [relationships] private. I’ve had relationships and kept them private, and even the ones that I’ve had, with the tiny amount that I’ve let the world see, I regret,” Billie shared while speaking to Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp in September 2020, about wanting to keep her relationships private. “I think about the people that have made their relationships OD public, and then they break up, and it’s like, ‘What if it goes bad?’ Then everyone has this whole opinion on your relationship that they have no idea about. It’s not something I’m interested in.”
