Who is Billie Eilish’s boyfriend? Are Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford in a relationship?

Fans of Billie Eilish, a rising star in the world of pop music, are speculating as to whether she has been photographed with a potential new lover.

A video posted on social media by a fan on Friday, October 14 purported to show Eilish and alternative singer, Jesse Rutherford, holding hands at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Rutherford is primarily recognized as the lead singer of the American rock band The Neighbourhood. But are they in a relationship, and why have fans reacted negatively to the possibility that they are dating?


Are Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford in a relationship?

A user submitted a video of what appeared to be Eilish and Rutherford walking through the Universal Studios park together, sparking the rumors. They appeared to be walking together.

However, can we be certain that the two individuals in the video were who the fan claimed they were?

Fortunately, the Daily Mail’s celebrity sleuths have already conducted the necessary research, and the evidence reveals that both Eilish and Rutherford were at Universal Studios at the same time.

Elish’s producing brother and co-writer, Finnias, posted a photo of Rutherford in the men’s restrooms at the amusement park on his Instagram Story. Rutherford was seen wearing a black leather jacket similar to the one in the fan-posted social media video in his own Instagram selfie with Finneas.

As Eilish shared her own toilet selfie from Universal Studios, it was revealed that she was similarly attired to the individual in the fan video. Clearly, they were at the amusement park for Halloween Horror Nights, where the fan claimed to have seen them in their original post.

The admirer yelled, “OMG I just spotted Billie Eilish at Horror Nights!” in text over the video.


What is the age difference between the two?

Since Eilish performs with the confidence and expertise of a much older individual, it is often easy to forget that the pop diva is only 20.

Rutherford is 31 years old, and although it is not verified that the pair are dating, social media reaction about the 11-year age gap has been flooding in since the rumors arose.

“He’s 31 and she can’t even drink legally yet,” said one Twitter user. Another said, “Jesse Rutherford is FAR too old to be dating Billie Eilish.” “Bro, please don’t be such a jerk!” I have your face tattooed on my body.”

While an 11-year age difference between two consenting adults – especially if they were slightly older than the two individuals in question – would likely not be a major cause for worry, fans have speculated that Rutherford may have known Eilish when she was a kid, which complicates matters.

A Jesse Rutherford fan account on Twitter revealed photographs of Eilish and Rutherford posing at a costume party in December 2017.

The photos in question were taken on Eilish’s 16th birthday, when Rutherford was 26 years old – TMZ alleges Eilish was actually 15 in the photos.

TMZ claims the above-mentioned “proof” proves “there’s no doubt this is them [in the fan video],” yet Eilish has a reputation for keeping her personal life secret; if they are a couple, would they have so publicly “confirmed” the potentially controversial relationship?

In an interview with Capital Radio a few years ago, Eilish stated that she “absolutely” likes to keep her relationships “secret” and that she regrets those she has allowed the public to see even “a little bit.”

According to TMZ, “many folks are squirming at the idea that Jesse knew Billie while she was underage and then reportedly hooked up with her as an adult.” The reality is that they are both adults and can do as they choose.
