It looks like love may be in the air for Billie Eilish, according to several reports. The 20-year-old Grammy-winning artist is rumored to be dating musician Jesse Rutherford after they were spotted kissing in Los Angeles. Now, the two have appeared to confirm their relationship by wearing coordinating Halloween costumes and appearing on Billie's IG.
The relationship rumors come after Billie's breakup with ex Matthew Tyler Vorce, who debunked cheating allegations on May 30, 2022, via Instagram Stories. "Nobody cheated on anyone. Relationships end. Simple as that. Creating rumors and LYING on the internet is dangerous," Matthew wrote at the time, per People.
Jesse, who's 11 years Billie's senior at 31 years old, is the frontman of the alternative band The Neighbourhood, who popularized tracks like 2013's "Sweater Weather" and 2020's TikTok hit, "Stargazing." Jesse was romantically linked to model and Wildflower Cases entrepreneur, Devon Lee Carlson, from 2015 to 2021.
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.
