What We Know So Far About the Breakup of Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford

Everyone was shocked when Billie Eilish and her boyfriend of less than a year, Jesse Rutherford, broke up so soon after getting together. Because they were 11 years apart in age, their relationship made news from the start.

When Billie and Jesse started dating, Billie was 20, and Jesse was 31. Her team put out a statement saying that the two had broken up and said that they had done so “amicably.”

A source said, “We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends.”

They also refuted rumors that their relationship ended because one cheated on the other. In May, Billie went to the Met Gala by herself.

People didn’t like their relationship because they were so different in age, even though they had known each other for six years before they started dating. Fans were upset because it seemed like the two were close when Billie was still a child.

After dressing as an elderly couple and a baby for Halloween in an apparent attempt to draw attention to the criticism they’d been receiving, things quickly escalated. Billie responded to the criticism by saying:

“Say what you need to say, but I am in control right now. I did this.”
