It's that time of year again—cuffing season, and as the weather gets cooler, Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford are getting cozier and cozier.
First, photos from TMZ showed the two musicians dining together in Los Angeles. They were even spotted sharing a steamy kiss on the sidewalk outside the restaurant. BTW, this wasn't the first time Billie and Jesse were seen together. During a date at Los Angeles' Crossroads Kitchen on Oct. 13, they were also spotted kissing, per People.
And just this week, Billie soft launched with her new 'ship on Instagram, sharing cute Halloween photos with Jesse in costume with the caption, "life is craaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy🤡 happy halloween🎃🥰."
While Twitter users have had a lot to say about the Sweater Weather singer's age compared to Billie's, the negative attention doesn't seem to phase the potential new couple. (Billie is 20 years old compared to Jesse's 31 years.)
Regardless, they're not afraid to lock lips, putting the "public" in PDA.
Although Billie hasn't publicly confirmed their relationship, I'm expecting an announcement any moment now.
IDK about you, but I'm Happier Than Ever about the pop singers' budding romance (see what I did there?). So, as a loyal Billie fan, I did some digging to get the low-down on her likely new beau.
Here's what you need to know.
Who is Billie Eilish dating now?
Given the whole IG launch thing, Jesse Rutherford definitely seems to be Billie's new man.
The "everything i wanted" singer previously dated Rapper Q, aka Brandon Adams, and was said to have also been in a relationship with actor Matthew Tyler Vorce, per People.
There were some cheating allegations after her relationship with Matthew ended; however, the actor debunked them via his Instagram stories on May 30, 2022. "Nobody cheated on anyone. Relationships end. Simple as that," per People.
Jesse, on the other hand, previously dated Devon Lee Carlson, the model and entrepreneur, from 2015 to 2021, Newsweek reported. This couple was even dubbed "2019's most 2019 couple" by GQ. While I'm not exactly sure what qualifications that title entails, it's safe to say that their six-year relationship was pretty serious.
Who is Jesse Rutherford?
Jesse is a singer, songwriter, and actor. However, you probably know him best as the lead vocalist for The Neighbourhood, the alternative rock band that wrote the hit single Sweater Weather in 2013, per Billboard.
He has performed at Lollapolooza and Coachella, so he's kind of a big deal.
How did they meet?
It's not entirely clear how Billie and Jesse met. However, photos of the duo posing together in 2017 indicate that they've been friendly for a while.
How large is their age gap?
Jesse turned 31 in August. Billie is 20, and her birthday is in December, per Newsweek.
That leaves the maybe-couple with a 10.5-year age difference. And the two seemed to nod (not so subtly) to all the comments about their age gap this Halloween by dressing as a baby and an old man for the holiday. Swipe for the evidence:
How have fans reacted to their 'ship?
Many fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the singers' age difference. While many users have negative thoughts on the matter (and aren't afraid to share), some highlight the fact that Billie is mature for her age and can make her own decisions.
This Tweet put their age gap in some pop-culture terms.

How long have they been together?
It's tough to say. Because neither Billie nor Jesse has publicly commented on the romance, their relationship timeline is a bit unclear.
However, there's no denying that things are heating up between these two. Stay tuned for more 'ship deets.
